Default Any reviews on Kayak brand bikes from China?

I need a small bike for use in Central America and have found a brand available there called "Kayak" made by Chongquin Guangyu manufacturing company. Can't seem to find any reviews of the machines and would like some input.
They are reasonably priced by USA standards but I, of course, do not want to invest in a poor quality machine.

Stick with Honda or Yamaha, thay have a big presence in Central and South America. The few pesos you save on buying one of those Chinese knock-offs will ultimately be spent in blood, sweat and tears as you try to find spare parts and unavailable manuals, along with dealers (usually auto parts places) who know next to nothing about motorcycles. When I was in Brasil I saw a lot of nice Honda and Yamaha dual sport bikes, both two and four stroke that will serve you well.
