California Air Resources Board Approves CSC RX3 Motorcycle
By: CSC Motorcycles
“We were confident that the RX3 would be approved by CARB,” said Steve Seidner, CSC President and Chief Executive Officer. “The RX3 motorcycle is a very clean-running bike, with fuel injection, a catalytic converter, and volatile emissions containment features, so we never had any doubts it would be approved. It passed all of its exhaust and volatile emissions tests. It’s a great bike and we thank both CARB and the US EPA for acting expeditiously on our submittal. We are now turning our attention to Canada, the next country in which we are certifying the RX3.”
The 250cc RX3 is a 6-speed, fuel injected, counterbalanced, overhead cam, water-cooled motorcycle manufactured to CSC’s specifications by Zongshen, one of China’s largest motorcycle manufacturers. The motorcycle’s $3495 retail price includes engine guards, a skid plate, a windshield, saddlebags, and a top case. The CSC RX3 is available in red, blue, orange, and white.
“We are breaking new ground with our path to market on this motorcycle, which is one of the reasons we can offer it at such an attractive price,” Seidner continued. “We sell direct to the consumer, the motorcycle has a two-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, and we include a shop manual with every motorcycle we sell. We don't have exorbitant delivery or dealer setup fees. Our website includes detailed “how to” instructions for all required routine maintenance actions, including valve adjustment, oil changes, and more. Our intent is to empower our riders to be self-sufficient, without being chained to a dealer network. We stock enough parts to build the motorcycles from the ground up, so there will never be a situation where we don’t have parts in stock. The price is right and the CSC RX3’s quality is world class. Anyone who says otherwise has not seen the bikes.”
“We will always put our riders first,” Seidner said, “and we’ve configured the motorcycle the way our riders want it. That includes a 17-inch rear wheel, 12-volt accessory outlets under the seat, and a 300-watt alternator. These are all things that are important to serious adventure touring riders, and they are all included with the motorcycle at no extra charge. In addition to those items, we have an extensive accessory line, including larger aluminum saddlebags, various spotlight kits, tank bags, tinted windshields, additional dash-mounted power outlets, oil change service packs, and more. We’re particularly pleased with the reception our accessories are receiving in the marketplace. We’ve even had distributors in other countries order from our RX3 accessory line.”
“I really like this motorcycle,”
The first shipment of CSC RX3 motorcycles left the Zongshen factory on 8 February 2015. The bikes are enroute to the US, with delivery to the US expected in early March.
