New motorcycle items for 2022
China is now attacking the power cruiser segment as well. The Benda LFC700 has now been presented in China.
The model makes on Ducati Diavel, but uses a 680 cc in-line four-cylinder.
When it comes to play of light, Benda focuses on strong accents. The main headlight with its turbine-like appearance …
… is framed by a combination of daytime running lights and indicators.
It is available in two performance levels.
For the basic configuration, 86 hp at 10,000 rpm and 60 Nm at 8,000 rpm are specified. The high-power version develops 94 hp at 11,000 revs and brings a maximum torque of 63 Nm to the start at 8,500 revolutions.
The frame is a cast aluminum construct, the swing arm is mounted within the engine mount, which gives it a look: everything from one cast.
The rear 310 wheel bears the license plate as a rucksack bolted to the side. The adjusters for the chain slack are also covered.
In the aluminum swingarm there is a 310/35 tire on an 18-inch rim.
The benda is extremely long and deep. The weight is given as 235 kilograms.
The exhaust relies on four square tailpipes.
In China, the Benda starts at prices equivalent to around 5,100 euros for the basic version and from just under 6,000 euros for the high-power model.
The first patent drawings appeared in July 2020.
The Benda clearly points to Ducati Diavel.
The inline four-cylinder is reminiscent of the Honda CBR 650 engine.
The instruments sit on the handlebars as TFT displays, and the front headlights feature a turbine design.
The rear sits low, the rear tire is extremely wide.

Benda LFC700: Power cruiser from China in series
Power cruiser from China with 310 rear tires
China is now attacking the power cruiser segment as well. The first patent drawings for the Benda LF-01 were already available in 2020, and the model has now been presented as the LFC700 at the CIMA in China.
Benda is a Chinese manufacturer that is not yet known in this country. Hangzhou-based Zhejiang Changling Binjiang Motorcycle Co., Ltd. (Benda Motor Group) has so far mainly built 50cc scooters, cargo tricycles and motorcycles with a maximum of 400 cm³ and two cylinders. Partnerships with well-known motorcycle manufacturers are not yet known.
In July 2020, patent images appeared in China that show the design of a real power cruiser. You can see an elongated bike in the style of a Ducati Diavel. An inline four-cylinder engine is located in the frame made of cast aluminum elements. The designation BD 700 suggested a displacement of just 700 cm³. The engine structure is strongly reminiscent of the inline four-cylinder from the Honda CBR 650 – but with new side covers and modifications in the area of the cylinder head.
Two performance levels, but always a 310 rear wheel
In July 2021, Benda officially presented the LF-01 as the LFC700. It is currently not known whether the power cruiser will also come to Europe. Therefor some technical data. The in-line four-cylinder comes with 680 cm³ and two power variants. For the basic configuration, 86 hp at 10,000 rpm and 60 Nm at 8,000 rpm are specified. The high-power version develops 94 hp at 11,000 revs and brings a maximum torque of 63 Nm to the start at 8,500 revs. The driver sits at a seat height of just 695 millimeters behind a 20 liter fuel drum, from where he has to direct the 235 kilogram benda. The built-in rear wheel format is really extreme: 310 / 35-18 – even some cars go pale there. At the front, a 130/70 tire rotates on a 19-inch rim. The top speed of the basic version is limited to 170 km / h. The reins of the power variant let air up to 195 km / h. It is shifted by a six-speed gearbox. The final drive takes place via a conventional chain.
The Benda almost stops on the 310 rear tire.
What an exhaust…
Another striking feature is the under-engine exhaust, which blows off to the side in four square tailpipes directly in front of the rear wheel. The rear wheel itself is in an aluminum swing arm with a central spring strut. The front wheel with double disc brake system and radially attached brake calipers is guided by a USD fork. In the base, the stoppers come from Nissin, Brembos equip the high-power version. ABS is standard equipment. The cockpit manifests itself as a TFT display on the extremely wide handlebar. In front of it there is a round LED headlight in a turbine design.
Exhaust with four rectangular tailpipes.
In Europe, the Benda could hit the markets in Spain, Portugal or the UK. In China, it is now starting at prices equivalent to around 5,100 euros for the basic version and from just under 6,000 euros for the high-power model.
Will the Chinese become serious competitors for the established motorcycle manufacturers??

Yes, they learn quickly.
No, they never reach their level.
Benda makes the LFC700 on a small power cruiser in the style of a Ducati Diavel. Its four-cylinder in-line engine delivers up to 94 hp, which is enough for almost 200 km / h. An export to selected European markets is conceivable.
