You can take a look at F2 Motorcycles website Chang Jiang from F2 Motorcycles Ltd to get the current information.

So why should we get a little excited, well, it is huge leap forward compared to the Ural, a liquid cooled DOHC 8 valve twin, producing over 60 hp and it has a Bosch EFI system, plus linked disc brakes on every wheel. If the pricing is cheaper than the Ural, one has to say, why buy a Ural when you can have one of these. With other manufacturers hell bent of making the fuel tanks smaller and smaller it is nice to see it has a 20lt tank. More information will, I am sure appear on F2’s website.

More alert than the Ural on the road, not only does the Chang-Jiang turn more flat, it brakes better and also shows more dynamic engine level. For mainly road use, it is the one to choose!” The only fault was the low silencers, that is if you wish to mainly ride off road, then I think a small mod to raise them wouldn’t be a issue. Take a look at the link below for the full report.
