Well, good on UM!

I don't believe I've seen UM.

'Course, there's probably no Dealer that sells UM 'round heeyar.

UM, that's all I have to say about that.

That's very nice, but it doesn't inspire confidence when the company's main website DOESN'T RESPOND.

Furthermore, since the article is a PR release devoid of anything but bloviation I have to assume that these are just more of those worthless Chinese junk bikes like Lifan.

You didn't miss anything by not being able to access the site.

Well, there are different manufacturers that build UM motorcycles.

The 450 quad, the 250 scooter, the 650 and 250cc road bikes are Korean. Hyosung.

Yes, a lot of thier bikes are Chinese. One thing that distinguishes them from "Chinese crap" is they are able to change the design, building materials and quality of the bikes they import and badge.

They are worth a look if you want to go with an "Other Makes" bike.

Is this the new name for Hyosung? There was mention that they were going to change the name. The article made no reference to where they sourced their products.

I'm willing to give the Chinese a chance, just the ones I've seen so far are inferior indeed.
