When my Trophy is done, I'd buy one.  My Chinese scooter just runs and runs and runs....Oh, it stops quite well too LOL

Which brand of Chinese scooter is it?

A few months ago the young lad at my local bike shop were saying that his Chinese motorbike wasn't as reliable or of good quality compared to the previous Suzuki he had, he said that the parts were cheaper to buy but he ended up going through more of them.

Even if they copied the Trophy to the last detail it wouldn't necessarily be such a bad thing.  At least we might have replacement parts for a while longer!  :062:

Craftsmen and Artisans are equally capable in most any developed country; I'm not a Chinese fan, don't get me wrong, but ..  they build there what they are TOLD to build, and it that's cheap fall-apart junk, that's what they manufacture.  It's the buyer who sets the specs that is to blame....

Point is, they can build a fine machine if that is what they are asked ( or want ) to do....

IMHO.. that is...  :155:

Oh, by the way, do not patronize Wish.com, again IMHO, bought a backup-camera from them, came from China, China-Engrish instructions, terrible, no wiring instructions, and when I downloaded the app... CHINESE!!!!  They are giving me the severe run-around on returning the item, so I'd avoid them..

Ummm.. This thing is awful. Look at the cockpit. It's terrible! They definitely had the Trophy in mind when they were cooking this thing up, obviously. But it falls woefully short.  Hard Pass. For me, anyway. I would not consider this thing at any price.
