I've seen the WK450 and there is a big thread on here for it. Didn't know there was a 400 too!
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.

I had a good look at it and a lot of the Chinese bikes at the show yesterday. What I saw was the same old problem...nice design and good looks but really poor quality materials and metal.

For the price they are fine but I don't think they compare to a good 2nd jap bike.

Was more interested in the monkey bike next to it for £1100!
Did look the part though.
Honda, the power of dreams.

Here is some info:

http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-new ... 25931.html

WK BIKES has added a 400cc air-cooled single-cylinder adventure model to its Chinese-made range for 2015.

The Trail 400 makes a claimed 27hp and 24lbft, and weighs 151kg dry.

It’s got spoked wheels and up-side forks and comes with optional aluminium panniers.

No price has been announced yet but it’s likely to be under £3,500.

It’s on display at this week’s Motorcycle Live show, running until Sunday at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre.

I'm always amazed by those who can judge the quality of materials by simply looking at them.
Makes me wonder why, here, in manufacturing, we spend so much time and money analysing materials via laboratory testing, X Ray etc. :whistle:
