2009 QLINK Megelli Review


QLINK appears to have covered all bases with its Megelli 250 series that went on sale in the United States in 2009. The Megelli line has three models, each designed for a different type of riding. The 250 m is an Enduro-styled motorcycle that can be taken on- or off-road. The 250 s is the standard model, while the 250 r is a sports bike that was designed by Megelli of Lincoln, England. All three models were made in Chongqing, China, by the Chongqing Huansong Industrial Co. They are sold with an 18-month unlimited mileage warranty.

The 250 r appears to be the most popular of the trio in the United States. It has a sporty look, is capable of speeds up to 90 mph on the freeways, and still gets a respectable estimated 42 mpg city/highway. The 250 r comes with a racing windshield and a tubular steel trellis frame. It has aerodynamic fairings to cut down on wind resistance, while an under-tail racing muffler provides a dynamic touch. The 250 m has a two-piece vinyl seat, and comes in gunmetal gray, red and yellow. The 250 s and 250 r come in black, red and yellow.
