I wouldn`t buy anything chinese at the minute they have done enough damage to the world already without giving them your hard earned money for a pile of utter rusting before your eyes crap. Buy a VanVan every time but its a free world and its your money :tumble:

Nailed in one!

From an engineering or quality standpoint there is no justification in buying a Chinese motorcycle! It's no secret......it's all over the Net FFS! You may as well just flush your money down the shitter and cut out the middle man!

From a moral standpoint.......only a complete c*nt would buy anything Chinese after what they've done. Hundreds of thousands of people are dead, economies are decimated, jobs are gone, homes are going to be lost, and the future looks bleak for many people.

Of course, they still want you to buy their cheap shit as if nothing has happened! Worldwide, everybody needs to boycott their shit, and personally I'd like to see a ban on imported Chinese goods everywhere.

And if they did it would be because they used parts made in China thus defeating the object of rust/reliability :roll:

The other point is relationship with the biking community. Took my Lexmoto to a local biker garage and was treated like a muppet, same garage 18months later with a big none Chinese bike I get treated like one of the gang even thought I stuffed up on trying repairs myself.

And even without getting into the Chinese bike stuff, Lexmoto are just shite company. Their warranty isn't worth the paper it's printed on, and the dealers in their network are a bunch of shameless cowboys. And going back to the Chinese bike stuff... trust me, you'll find yourself trying to rely on the dealers and the warranty a whole lot if you buy Lexmoto. Not just for the reliability but also for the ridiculously small service intervals. I don't exaggerate when I say I literally spent every single weekend going to the dealer either for a repair or a service.

I wouldn't buy another Made In China bike. Much as I love my YS it's had a number of issues and returns to the dealer (starter solenoid, clocks, broken temp sensor). EML has come back on again within the past week, yet another return. Oh and did I mention the rust rust rust...

A big fan of Yamaha's products (all Japanese bikes really) but not a fan of the Chinese quality. Next time I'll either 1) save up for something Made In Japan/UK/Etc or 2) buy a used version of 1).

Yep, so is the YS125 that succeeded the YBR. I like it but as I say the quality's not great. I'm not sure if there are any 125s that aren't Chinese made these days.
