Interesting.

Reviews for reliability are hit and miss on alot of the F or chinese brands; I've done searches before.

I think it could be fun based on price and if quality if close to average.

But I also look at the little Suzuki TU250 and think that would be fun to play with. It at $3799. I bet it has Hp in the low 20's and could be made to get in the high 20's to low 30's. My DRZ250 I just picked up has lots of "nearly free" horse power (exhaust, intake, minor mods), so I would imagine these do as well, although I really am saying that with no solid knowledge and could be completely wrong.

suzuki tu250 460x0w

Of course, I bet the triple sounds better!

But this version of the TU looks like fun.

Actually called a grasstracker...

threadjack not intended, just meant in discussion regarding the Vento Triple as an alternative. (No, I don't work for Suzuki)
