Euromot GXT200
 
Anyone know anything about these?

have already posted on the South America forum but thought this may be a more appropriate place to ask.

I intend to buy one in Chile and ride it to Argentina, probably doing somewhere in the region of 10k miles. Just wondering if spares are readily available and if they have a tendancy to go pop.

Cheers
Jim

I think a euromot can use parts from a dr200 if necessary.

Euromot - QingQi - Genesis.... etc DR200 suzuki
 
I just posted a bunch of links on these bikes on SA forums

Chinese made four stroke bike with GY motor. Are sold under various names in different countries - essentially all the same.
Should be good for 10K miles, just need to take it easy and watch the oil level.
Lots of vibration, check all bolts are tight.

Genesis Euromot etc in Costa Rica
 
I've just finished 2k on my Genesis, so far seems to be holding up ok. No indications of problems to come. Talked with other owners of Genesis bikes here, and they've had few problems, one guy has more than 30k on his still running good.
I'm thinking of taking off for SA again from Costa Rica, and see how far one of these will go....or maybe sell it and fly to Chile and buy one there.
Cost here in Costa Rica new is $2500 USD
Chile is $1900 USD for same bike
boat to Columbia up to $700
Flight to Chile from CR $600
....doing the math now

parts interchange dr200
 
I flew down to Santiago and bought a Euromot 200...blue, identical to the one I sold in CR - have 500km on it and just when in to have one spoke replaced (bad from factory) and had a chat with Luis in Vina del Mar near Santiago Chile.. the head mechanic at Honda motos here (who also own the Yamaha/Euromot shop) in Vina del Mar btw....
and said he just rebuilt a Suzuki DR200 and used all Euromot parts to do it......go figure. He said as far as he could tell they are identical quality and appear to have identical manufacturing numbers...and they have sold a lot of them over the years and really had no problems with them except the chain needs to be replaced with a jap one, the chinese version evidently is crap.

Euromot GXT200 for sale in South Ecuador!
 
Hello! I am currently in Ecuador and selling a Euromot GXT200 that has come up from Chile to Colombia and then some of the way back down. I need to sell it soon because I ran out of time. I would be looking for around about $900 for bike, tools and clothing (the whole nine yards). It would be ideal for people who are traveling South to Chile because it could be sold for more there.

I am in a villiage in the Southern mountains in Ecuador called Vilcabamba, worth a visit anyway, and working on the bar at Hosteria Izcayluma. Just ask for Pete at the bar if you come down. You could e-mail me on lil_stoned@hotmail.com as well. Please reply pronto as this bike needs to go. Thanks x

Hi there, I am going to be living not far from Vina del Mar from September (voluntary English teacher) and would like to buy a Euromot while I'm out there to do some travelling around. Would it be possible to get the contact details of Luis and his shop? It would be very much appreciated. Thanks for your help. Ruthie

Does anyone know the seat height for the GXT200?

I can't seem to find it on the web; thanks.

Could the OP or other posters update the thread? Did the engine blow up after 20k, or did everything work out? I'm quite undecided whether to buy a Euromot 200 or keep it simple with a Honda 125.

Thanks!

I've seen a Euromot second hand with around 37k by memory - still apparently running well and was loaded with panniers.

I'm currently in Chile about to bite the bullet, and am still umming and ahhing over the xr125 vs the Euromot. Deciding factor will perhaps be seat height. Will sit on them later this week, and update my previous post.

Hi Turborob,

In a similar position really, but I've heard the xr125 can really struggle in the Andes, to the point of having to physically push it up hills! People give reports of the Euromot surviving pretty well at high-alt, even two-up...

Seems to be that the engine is solid, suspension is decent, along with all the important bits, but many parts of the part are low-grade, i.e. the plastics, headlight, etc. Yet there are a few old ads on here with overlanders selling them with 25k + on the clock, and seemed to be happy with them overall, and esp. for the price.

So judging from my research, the Euromot seems like the best budget option so long as you get the rear spokes and chain changed with Japanese parts. I'd really love a Honda Tornado or maybe a Falcon, just to have that peace of mind, but they are of course much pricer than the Euromot, even second-hand.

Anyway, would be interested to hear what you go for in the end!

Xr125 is a good bike and very confy but soooo weak in power (for a 125cc)
The Qinqi 200 is less confy but goes up hill perfect and is more fun.
(bike is same as suzuki only other plastics and tank)
