The popular giant automotive brands are getting trapped by the not so popular companies from China. They create exact copies of the well-known products and enhance their possession in the automobile industry. Unfortunately, this time the victim who's cheated is the Japanese Hercules Yamaha, which has got a replica of its YZF-R3 by a name called XGJAO XJ350. Even the brand name is extremely weird.

From the snapshots, we can clearly depict that the XJ350 is an exact duplicate of R3 with slight modifications in the design front such as projector headlamps and quad-exhaust pipes. Apart from this, the design and proportions are pretty much identical. A noteworthy alteration besides the aforementioned is a 350cc, twin-cylinder engine. However, this false imitation would hardly get any popularity among the audience, but, the engineering of quad exhaust canisters is becoming a hot topic of discussion on the media channels.
Powering the R3 is a 321cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, in-line twin-cylinder petrol engine that propels 42PS of power at 10750 RPM and 29.6NM of torque at 9000 RPM, matched up to a six-speed transmission.
Talking about this replicating brand, the Chongqing XGJAO Motorcycle Manufacture Co., the firm has quite an impressive record of making replicas of globally praised two-wheelers. It is a division of the conglomerate Chongqing Sokon Industry Group Co.
