Description

2008 Xingyue 150cc Vogue Tricycle
Registration no. LL08 YRC
Frame no. L4SKGKDC762005200
Engine no. XY157QMJ2060018526

Built by the Xingyue Group in China, this unusual machine was clearly inspired by BMW's semi-enclosed C1, the German firm's 21st Century take on the concept of the ideal urban motorcycle. Unlike the German design, the Xingyue has two wheels at the rear for enhanced stability, and a front end that tilts while cornering. The Xingyue is powered by a water-cooled four-stroke single and equipped with continuously variable 'automatic' transmission. Top speed is around 50mph. Acquired by the lady vendor in March 2009, the Xingyue was last taxed to 31st July 2009 and currently displays a total of 428 kilometres on the odometer. Kept in dry storage since acquisition and started regularly, most recently earlier this year, the machine comes with a dedicated battery charger and a V5C registration document. (The BMW roundels are a previous owner's idea of a joke).
