Hmmm interesting. Nice styling. Not so keen on the small take capacity though. And only a 3 month warranty.

Like the idea, but would need a fair few improvments before I'd buy one.

yeah they ok, but pic is in the USA, they obviuosly bought n after you paid for it,and as stated takes you out of the paypal protection period

CofC required etc, well thats only available from the manufacturer??

I do actually like it styling etc, would be perfect for my missus, but quailty on most of this stuff is so dubious

contradictory statements such as it being a 200cc engine with a 149ml displacement make me think this is going to turn out to be a pile of shyte

AGREE with you there.Like everyone says-TOO many variables in the listing.
Like the potential of it though,n 400 or 550 engine could be shoe-horned in maybe?

I bought one of those "X-Stream" chinese trail bikes (Honda copy) to go to work on and do some green laning. So far, I've ridden around 250 miles on it. In that time, the battery box nearly fell off (one bolt fell out), the speedo cable has snapped, the idiot lights shroud has broken, the bolt that holds the silencer on has fallen out, the bash plate bolts have all fallen out and the heat shield on the downpipe has fallen off. Apaprt from that, it starts on the first kick

chinese bikes are what they are...They do what it says on the packet..but...as you have no dealers to do the general work you have to treat them as bits'as and when you buy one you have to change the singleweight (transport only) gear oil for multigrade, and check all the nuts and bolts regularly...if you find a loose one fit a star washer...put some vasaline on all the exposed bare metal and welds..and the bike will run like a star...In other words treat it the way we used to have to treat the old English bikes...so if you've done 250 miles on transport oil, change it now!

Got a friend with a Better 125 (cg clone), she rides it daily and just after her cbt did Reading to Anglesey and back for a rally. Same kind of silencer mounting bolts, sidepanel falling off etc but it starts and goes great even if it looks like a strange 70's throwback with a big instrument cowl and black vinyl/plastic last 6 inches to the exhaust (oh her leopold skin seat cover doesn't help)
