AW Introduces 500 N and 500 R In China

China’s motorcycle manufacturing landscape continues to evolve with the emergence of new brands aiming to make their mark.

  • AW is a relatively unknown name that has recently stepped into the spotlight by unveiling its inaugural offerings – the 500 N and 500 R motorcycles in China. 
  • the 500 N and 500 R makes a commendable 45hp and tips the scale at 186kg. 

Although a newcomer, AW has quickly captured attention since its debut at a trade fair in China back in 2021. The brand’s debut models, the 500 N and 500 R, share a common platform but boast distinct styling elements.

Both motorcycles are powered by engines sourced from Chinese manufacturer Loncin, presenting a parallel-twin configuration reminiscent of Honda’s renowned engine architecture.

Performance-wise, the AW 500 series packs a punch with a commendable 45 horsepower output, placing it on par with other contenders in the entry-level segment. Weighing in at a manageable 186 kilograms, these bikes offer an accessible riding experience suitable for a diverse range of riders.

Setting itself apart, AW has equipped the 500 N and 500 R models with premium underpinnings. The front suspension features adjustable inverted forks, while the rear employs an adjustable link-type shock. Braking capabilities are enhanced with dual disc brakes boasting radially mounted four-piston calipers.

In sync with modern trends, AW’s new offerings embrace technology with a sizable full-color display, hinting at possible Bluetooth connectivity. The two models diverge in their aesthetics – the 500 R embracing a traditional fully-faired sportbike design, while the 500 N takes cues from premium modern classics, infusing sporty angles with a touch of retro flair.
