Jialing JH600B-A is the first sidecar model of China in the 21st century, as many western people know the classic "Changjiang 750" sidecar was produced since 1962 and had ceased production in 2009, so at one time the JH600B-A was the only domestic sidecar which can be legally registered in China (From 2011 to 2014). This sidecar was first equiped to the Chinese Army at 2007 and then push out to the civilian market, as a military vehicle, it should be "extremely reliable", however, after some years riding this model, I can't say it is qualified for the army.
Advantage:
  • The appearance is large enough for a sidecar, the dimension and design of it can be described as a "sidecar can take you everywhere", not just a urban transportation. Even some people do not like the shape of the bike and body which is usually called as "Big Rooster" amang Chinese riders, the overall design of the sidecar is eligible.
  • The off-road capability is desirable, although there is no side-wheel driving on it,  the off road 19-inch tyres and the high ground clearance help a lot, I've trapped in sand and grave for serval times, with the reverse gear and rope pulled by companions, it's not so hard to get rid of the soft ground. In consideration of the price of this sidecar is only 1/3 of Ural two-wheel drive models, it's a cost-effective off-road sidecar.
  • The brake system is appropriate, it's not so strong but can stop the sidecar properly without any drift. A strong breaking system may not be a wise choice for sidecar due to possibility of turn over. Except for the ice surface, the brake system is under control.
Disadvantage:
  • The engine is a little week for a sidecar in this size, although the maxium speed is 110km per hour, it's very hard to run over 100km because of the roar of the engine and the vibration from the bike, sometimes make you think your sidecar is going to break down.
  • Quality is not eligible for military use, I'm in rider group of JH600B-A, it falls everywhere except the engine and gearbox, you cannot even tell a typical issue. As far as I know, the start switch, dash board, clutch disc, reverse and clutch cable, chain and lots of other parts can break down. However the good news is that the engine and gear box is much more reliable than the other parts, you may not have to discard it in wild place. If you are worried about the quality, there's a maintaince and repair package in Chinese E-commerce Taobao, it contains every parts which is on the cards that it's broken down, it's only for about 2000 RMB, not so expensive.
