Is the Italian firm set to make a return? It’s looking like it, courtesy of the partnership between Zongshen and Piaggio. With the Gilera name used by Zongshen when it revealed its Cyclone RA9 at the China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition in 2021, reports now suggest that it’s also been used for some patents for a 900cc V-twin engine from Zongshen-Piaggio. The engine in question looks like it shares some similarities with Aprilia’s 896cc Shiver, which is no great surprise when you consider the RA9 featured a frame that was remarkably similar to Aprilia’s Dorsoduro.
