    Don't do it. Buy the Yamahaha, it's Japanese and will still be running years after the Chinese bike has given up.

    I have no idea what that is. It might be fine but it'd be a gamble on what sort of cheese they decided to make it out of.

    Except the Japanese were striving for a superior product to dominate the market. The idealogy of the Chinese manufacturers that aren't heavily influenced by outside brands (hard due to Chinese policy on foriegn ownership of course) is to make a quick buck & after that -Fluck you.

    The Japanese hit back at problems with research & engineering solutions.
    If there is any rule for the inexperienced to keep in mind, it is that everything a reasonable, intelligent person should intuitively believe to be right will probably be totally wrong.

    I remember the comments then about shit alloy, crap chroming, piss poor wiring, rust away in 5 yrs etc etc about the japanese bikes and cars. I will agree the chinese can and do make some very inferior products. Those of us 50 and over will remember the 'made in Hong Kong' era of the 1960's.
    On the other side the chinese can and DO manufacture goods at a very high level. Often the factories are producing 'OEM' stuff for named European and American brands. HiFi is a good example of this. Those same companies produce high quality equipment at about 1/3-50% of the 'named brands' that is just as well made and has just as good components used. Some of the chinese bikes use japanese designed engines (yamaha/honda twins) Suzuki use china for the GN250.. it has been said the overall finish isnt as good, but the motors seem as robust as the original japanese manufactured ones.

    Its like Korea and cars. I would totally buy a Hyundai (or at least put it on the shortlist). If they used to be shit, they arent any more.

    but with the chinese made bikes available here, we're at the wrong part of the time/quality bellcurve, IMO.

    And, to the OP, looking at the riding position of that (its a ripoff of the Honda Dream 50) it would be anything BUT a cruiser.
