Launched in China, this off-road-friendly scooter has as many features as a full-fledged car!

  • The Dayang ADV 350 is the bigger-engined version of the ADV150.
  • Features a TFT instrument cluster with navigation, front and rear cameras, and even cornering lights!
  • Is powered by a 333cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine producing 29.5PS and 33.5Nm.

Chinese two-wheeler manufacturer Dayang is known for its blatant copy of the Honda ADV150, called the...erm, Dayang ADV 150. The Chinese bike maker in March had also launched a bigger-engined sibling, the Dayang Vorei ADV350. The standard variant is priced at CNY 27,990 (about Rs 3.18 lakh), while the Deluxe model retails at  CNY 29,990 (around Rs 3.40 lakh).

The scooter is powered by a 333cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine making 29.5PS at 7000rpm and 33.5Nm at 5500rpm. These are pretty decent figures, considering the Honda Forza 350’s 330cc motor churns out 29.2PS and 31.5Nm. Like the Dayang ADV150, this one too comes with a telescopic front fork, twin rear gas-charged shock absorbers, and 14-inch front and 13-inch rear alloy wheels (both wrapped in block pattern tyres). Braking is via 276mm front and  240mm rear discs with ABS. 

What makes this scooter really stand out from the Honda ADV150 (or even the Honda Forza 350, for that matter) is its long and impressive list of features, often provided in high-end motorcycles. The all-LED lighting system is enhanced by cornering headlamps. It also comes with a massive 7-inch TFT instrument cluster -- that also serves as the display for the front and rear cameras -- with smartphone connectivity and navigation. 

Yes, it’s got cameras too, just like the ones on cars! It even features Over The Air (OTA) updates, geo-fencing, ride history, diagnostics, and keyless ignition. For extra practicality, the scooter gets a USB charging port (and for some reason, a cigarette lighter). 

Another unique feature of this adventure scooter is the humongous 17.4-litre fuel tank. This is the biggest we’ve ever seen on a scooter! Also, at 755mm, the seat height is well-suited for shorter riders. That said, the scooter is pretty heavy, tipping the scales at 208kg. 

While it’s a shameless copy of the Honda ADV150, Dayang has made up for it by equipping the scooter with a bevy of features, most of which are missing in the real deal. If only Dayang were as creative in the design department! What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
