DAIICHI Motorcycles – A New Level of Affordability!



There’s a new range of motorcycles in Malaysia and it goes by the name of DAIICHI (not the nuclear plant that blew up in Japan), which offers owners more for less, with three Megelli 250cc motorcycles and a naked 650cc bike being offered for the time being.

The first of the three Megelli variants is the 250MR that’s basically a super motard that will appeal to those who wish to enjoy the scenes of flora and fauna that can only be found off the ‘paved’ path.

The Megelli 250RR is up next, featuring a very sporty looking fairing that seems rather similar to a Ducati 1098, except it retails at a fraction of the Ducati. Nonetheless, it’s still a looker and should be DAIICHI’s bread winner. It has to be noted that not only were the styling cues very similar to the 1098, but so was the ECU sourced from the Italian motorcycle manufacturer.

Lastly, if both the 250MR or even the 250RR doesn’t seem to suit your likes, then perhaps a naked streetfighter may, with the Megelli 250SR; unfaired, exposed and with a higher set of handle bars for a more upright and comfortable riding position.

All three 250cc variants come with an electric starter as standard (no kick-start) and are powered by a 4-stroke single-piston motor that provides 24bhp at 9,000rpm and 22.4Nm of torque at 7,000rpm; all of which gets mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with a wet clutch. Fuel tank capacity is at 7L.

Both front and rear 17” rims are made of aluminium with the front wrapped by a 100/70 tyre and a 130/70 tyre for the rear.

The use of T6 (aircraft-grade) aluminium chassis helps to keep dry weight (without fuel, coolant and lubricants) down with the 250MR weighing in at just 127kg; the 250SR at 135kg and the 250RR at 137kg.

However, should you find yourself looking beyond the displacement of the Megelli variants, there is the naked 650cc DAIICHI CFMoto 650NK being offered with a 4-stroke DOHC 2-piston motor with 8 valves and 650cc of displacemnt, it produces 66bhp at 8,500rpm and 62Nm of torque at 7,000rpm that’s mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

The OTR prices for the models are as follows;

1) Megelli 250MR retails at RM16,520.00

2) Megelli 250SR retails at RM16,720.00

3) Megelli 250RR retails at RM17,750.00

4) CFMOTO 650NK retails at RM28,000.00

N.B. Motors Trading Sdn Bhd is the official importer for the DAIICHI range of motorcycles and have partnered up with Tropicana Motor World to help distribute and help provide maintenance services at their outlets throughout Malaysia.

The bikes are available for test rides at Tropicana Motor World outlets, but as indicated by Kuching-based N.B Motors Trading, their initial batch of 25 motorcycles has entirely sold out with a total of 80 units on back-order.

However, NM Motors thankfully has a production facility that is capable of churning out 300 complete units per day and a fresh container of 23 bikes will be hitting out shores in a week’s time.

Current DAIICHI owners within the Klang Valley are able to service their motorcycles at:

No 1, Jalan 13/55A,
SS13, 40100 Shah Alam,
Selangor, Malaysia.
Tel : 03-5569 5749

from your sentence I presume you feel its low? 650cc for 66bhp.. hmm. isn’t too shabby. Even the Ninja 650R manages 65bhp. a Kancil 847cc fuel injected only has 49bhp.

iszo… ixeo already answered ur question….

for a bike 100hp/liter power-displacement ratio is about correct for common bike….

unlike those race-technology bike (kawa zxr series,suzy gsxr,honda cbr,yamaha r) definately they got more hp/liter ratio….

furthermore this bike was designed in europe while manufactured in taiwan/china getting decent review in US…so it was pretty decent..compared to over-inflated honda cbr250 price…..

i can see this bike as everyday racer with very lightweight chasis and “look at me” design and very attractive price….if people can spend similar price for a bloated 250cc sluggish scooter why not ppl choose this??? take example also how current ninja250 and naza blade 250 roaming around a lot…

“maybe” later i’ll write up some review when i got the test unit in hand…

1hp per 10cc is very decent already la. The 650 looks so tempting. Price is cheap too. Wonder how it handles?

ah.. ok I get it now. BHP per kg makes this bike pretty powerful.

Sorry, I’m not a biker so dunno how to appreciate the facts and figures. So had to ask!

the 250RR is a fairly nice bike but the fact that it has ECU sourced from Ducati, i find it’s hard to believe.

the design of the RR is handsome, no doubt. but how does this new kid compares to the years and years of refinement on the Ninja? I think the Ninja is hard to beat.. as its been perfected over the years.

I’m not a bike person either, just sail boats.

rxz less than 30bhp claimed so many lives aledi ma.for a bike that weighs less than 200kg, how much power you wan?

ducati 748 makes around 90 genuine bhp at the rear wheel, and that’s a sportbike, 66bhp sounds rideable for a naked. kawa er6 retails for more than rm30K, this one for RM28K, and it doesn’t look half bad. now on to maintenance-wise. support in malaysia how?

but for this, I’d still prefer Kawa zx150rr, the 2-stroke speedster.

smoke’em all 250 4-stroke with ease. :)

Of course it is. It’s a China brand (which the TS did not mention)

wonder how the single cylinder 250rr will fare against the v-twin blade 250 efi which sells for just a little below rm14k now. should be an interesting comparison since both have asian bloodlines.
