Cat got your tongues? I fly halfway around the world and spent countless hours translating Chinglish to compile this info that can't be found anywhere else (in English), and so far no comments?

Maybe you're all out buying Buells...

I guess we kind of expected more from the Chinese. The bikes are just "Eh" for us.

Just wondering if those bike "accessories" in the photos are standard or optional.

Yeah, nothing to exciting from them - yet. But it will be interesting to watch their progress.

Like all accessories, they are extra-cost options.

Progress is going to take a long time, cultures will need to shift, and that sometimes can take decades. This is not just marketing a product, raising certain manufacturing standards, or tweaking certain aspects of designs. Partially, I think there's also a social bias that will need to be addressed. What scares North Americans the most is the thought that our economy slips so far that it forces us to accept low cost goods on this level because it will be all that we can afford. The models at the show were cute though...
