CSC Starts 1500-Mile RX3 Ride Through Baja This Wednesday

From a CSC press release: 

CSC Motorcycles’ Inaugural Baja Run leaves from CSC corporate headquarters in Azusa, California this Wednesday (29 April 2015) at 4:30 a.m.  The CSC Inaugural Baja Run supports a key element of CSC’s unconventional path to market with its new RX3 250cc adventure touring motorcycle. CSC is sponsoring a series of adventure tours as part of the company’s marketing efforts. This first of the CSC adventure rides will include 16 RX3 customers on a 1500-mile ride through Mexico’s Baja peninsula.

“We want our customers to enjoy not just a great motorcycle, which the CSC RX3 is, but real world adventure riding,” said Steve Seidner, President and CEO of CSC Motorcycles. “With Baja literally at our doorstep, what destination could be better for our first adventure ride?”

Led by CSC’s public relations manager, Joe Berk, the group will spend 5 days in Baja on both paved and dirt roads, including the Vizcaino Desert, Catavina’s boulder fields, Guerrero Negro’s salt flats, Santa Rosalia on the Sea of Cortez, Bahia San Quintin, and northern Baja’s Ruta Vinacola. Planned stops include active and abandoned missions dating to the 1700s, Santa Rosalia’s mining museums and Gustav Eiffel-designed church, the cave paintings at El Raton, and other iconic Baja destinations. Expedition updates will be published daily on the company’s widely-followed blog at

“We have riders flying in from all over the US to take delivery of their new RX3 motorcycles and join us on the Inaugural Baja Run,” Seidner continued. “We’re very serious about providing top quality affordable adventure riding motorcycles that people will use for their intended purpose.   Our riders are serious explorers, and we’re convinced the RX3 is perfect for real world adventure riding.”

The CSC 250cc RX3 motorcycle includes a fuel injected, water cooled, and counterbalanced 4-valve engine with a 6-speed transmission. Standard equipment includes a skid plate, engine guards, luggage, 300-watt alternator, windshield, and pre-wired accessory outlets. With this equipment, the CSC RX3 is ready for on and off highway exploration as delivered in its stock configuration. CSC also offers an extensive RX3 accessory line, including aluminum Tourfella luggage, spot lamps, knobby tires, larger diameter front wheels, and other adventure touring accessories. At $3495, the RX3 is the world’s least expensive adventure touring motorcycle. The CSC RX3 motorcycle includes a 2-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

The RX3 is manufactured to CSC specifications by Zongshen in Chongqing, China. Zongshen has provided engines to CSC for its iconic Mustang motorcycle replicas for several years. “We’ve been extremely impressed with the reliability and performance of the 250cc Zongshen engine we use in our Mustang replicas,” said Seidner. “This product experience and our visits, technical evaluations, and process audits of the Zongshen production facilities have convinced us that Zongshen builds great products. We’re not alone in our conclusion; many other well-known motorcycle manufacturers use Zongshen engines and components.”

Upcoming CSC-sponsored adventure rides include a run through the Mojave Desert to next month’s Overland Expo in Flagstaff, Arizona, and a grand tour of the western United States in June with CSC riders and key Zongshen technical managers.
