They claim to have built and sold 10,000 vehicles powered by these engines. If so, they must be performing pretty well unless the manufacturer is a special pet of the Gov.



They aren't really low powered. 12 hp @ 9000 rpm is reasonable output from a 125cc engine. They're only using 9:1 compression ratios, probably because the gas is spotty.

The atrocity part is when the Atrociteur passes him. These are beneath his dignity.

"no 3rd world country has ever produced a decent motorcycle"



This is the only part of your post that's correct.

"Secondly, no 3rd world country has ever produced a decent motorcycle, regardless, of their political ideology. "



Would you consider Brazil third world? Some Honda dirtbikes (CRF150F and 230F) are made there. They seem decent to me.
