Of course, the only thing that is identical to the original is the "look". The engine is not a 1300cc, but a 650cc. It develops about 60 HP, though their specs mention 70.

The 2 cylinders have 4 valves per cylinder, within an injection system from Marelli and a suspension from Kayaba. Part of the ignition system comes from Ducati. So a mixture of goodies from reputable companies.

The bike weighs some 200 kgs and has 17" wheels. The bike is already on sale in Europe in Poland, where it is being sold under the Junak Open Junak link in a new window name. The price is rumored to around the €5000 mark ... cheap.
