Default Re: knock-offs?

So in short, it's a Chinese imitation of a Russian copy of a German design?

Heck, Briggs and Stratton are cutting edge compared to these guys.

The local honkawsuxyamuki dealer (I am serious, they sell ALL the Japanese brands) carries these things. Look a lot like their Honda counterparts, but much cheaper. Fit and finish are great, for the third world. They even sell spare engines, helmets and Chinese Herbal stuff....



Would I own one, uh, no. But I think my big ass on a 250 might be illegal motorcycle abuse! The 3 wheelers are interesting though, we have nothing like them here! I especially like the YL100ZKF..... Gotta look now, don't you......

Some of these Chinese manufacturers, like Sundiro, (actually owned by Honda) and are licensed by Japanese manufacturers to make bikes in China. There's been a ton of these that have started selling bikes here, and a lot of them are blatantly illegal copies of existing Japanese designs. I would expect these companies to be a serious threat if they can make their own designs; they can make bikes much cheaper than the Japanese can.

If their bikes are as good as their website AND their english translation, I'll buy one of each!

Geez, what is this world coming to.

I'm sure their 'owners manual' is a tri-fold pamphlet that looks photo copied and comes with a bogus address on the back, AND if you call the company....

the same person answers the phone every time!
