Langen motorcycles.
« on: November 11, 2021, 01:40:20 pm »
Has any of you seen the test of the 125kg British-built Langen 2stroke 250cc V-twin?

Just heard of it, hope I'm not late, but fuel injected/oil injected, and produces around 70HP.

Wasn't in on a previous post a week or so ago? And wasn't it a 250?


Oops,reading too fast today, I read 125kg as 125cc.

Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"Two Wheels, an engine and a place to sit." What more do you need?

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.

Thanks Bart.

Is it just me, or does that bike sounds sluggish on pick-up?

I was surprised to see it has tubeless wire wheels.  Really makes it look light.  And the cf tank was not left stolid & ugly looking carbon; instead pained nice silver  to again make it look light.

Pfff, check all her wheelies man!
With only 125kg and that long gearing it still lofts nicely eh?

Kamanya, that 250 makes 74hp from it's 250cc twin, that is as potent as the 690cc Wankel.

At 220hp, that 2T will weigh more though  :deal:

Perhaps the rider is a tad sluggish on the throttle?
