Although Lifan has not launched large-displacement models in recent years, in the small and medium-displacement market, with the KP family and V16 and other cost-effective models, Lifan’s awareness among riders has increased rapidly. This is due to the increasing product line , Covering street cars, sports cars, Minibike, adventure models, cruise models, etc., and the workmanship and product quality are getting better and better. On the other hand, Lifan’s models adhere to originality in appearance. No matter which product they are, they maintain their own style in appearance, and there is no shadow of plagiarism. I believe this is also recognized by everyone.
Earlier, the KPR series has been generally praised for its appearance. Now Lifan has continued its efforts to launch its retro product KPM200. The appearance is still very original, and the details are also very sophisticated. It is said to be the most beautiful Lifan. The price is 12,680 yuan. It still continues the high cost performance of Lifan products. However, before I saw the real car, I didn’t really agree much, but after unpacking, I did admit that Lifan has been improving over the years, and the improvement of product quality is obvious.
Compared to the traditional small displacement models, the KPM200 is very particular about the packaging. All are packed in wooden boxes. When it rains in Beijing, it is soaked for a whole day. After opening the box, except for the paper box at the bottom, it is slightly wet. There are no traces of rain. If you replace it with a traditional cardboard box, it is estimated that there will be only a wooden shelf and a drenched car the next day …
During the installation process, everything went smoothly. There were no low-level errors such as slipping or misalignment of the seats. The details of the vehicle and the paintwork can be said to be one of the best in all Lifan models. At this point, Lifan’s progress is obvious. After loading the car, this car is indeed very beautiful. Although it is positioned as a retro car, it looks very fashionable in the sun, without the heavy breath of a retro car. The light blue fuel tank is matched with imitation leather decorative bands, which are full of artistic style, and the carbon fiber-like decorative panels on the front and sides of the fuel tank add a touch of fashion to the vehicle, and the overall feel is like a stylish retro.
The vehicle configuration in the same class is quite satisfactory, with the front inverted shock absorption, and the rear mid shock absorption preload is adjustable. Front floating double piston caliper, rear single piston caliper. The whole car uses LED light sources, and the design of headlights and taillights can see the manufacturers’ intentions. The design of the instrument is unique. The drop-shaped liquid crystal negative display instrument is designed in the upper left corner of the fuel tank. Such a design is very rare in domestic and imported retro cars.
The wheels adopt 36-spoke chrome-plated spoke wheels, paired with Tensen all-terrain tires, 100 / 80-17 front tires, and 130 / 70-17 rear tires. The visual effects are very full and look very good with the style of the vehicle.
In terms of power, Lifan NBF water-cooled II engine is still used, with a displacement of 198mL. This engine has been adapted on many models of Lifan with stability guaranteed. The maximum power is 12.5kW and the maximum torque is 16.5N · m. It is equipped with a 6-speed gearbox. As for the adaptation of this engine on this car , We will share after the test drive.
In other details, the screws on the engine are marked with Lifan Logo. The vehicle also uses a handlebar reflector design to highlight the stylization. The front and tail of the exhaust are equipped with metal anti-scalding shields, which are also good-looking. The most interesting thing is that the car key of this car has a powerful spare key, which integrates a small inner hexagon and a bottle opener. Yes, it is a bottle opener, which is really unexpected.
As the most styled and high-value model of Lifan, is the KPM200 “virtual”? The “M” in KPM is the first letter of “Master”, so what kind of “Master” is it? We will reveal these one by one in the following videos, so stay tuned to the all-media platform of Motorcycle Magazine.
