I've looked into the brand before and its pretty cool. There was talks about opening a plant in the US not sure if that happened. Before I believe they were importing higher quality Chinese bikes. I believe mostly cb clones that were modded.

there are tons of brands out there in other parts of the world doing similiar things to this company, but epa regulations keep some of the good stuff from getting over here. which really sucks :(

the term "good mountain bike" is up for debate. I have a good mountain bike and didnt cost anywhere near 2k lol.

I would want to see how the fork frame and swing arm hold up.

I ride trials but have never seen one of these. If anyone gets one let me know and we can go hit Rio, they have some pretty sweet dedicated trials areas and while the actual trails are short they are still pretty fun.

I've know about CCW for a few years now, and they seem to have fairly favorable reviews. Yeah, the engines are chinese, but it's an american company and they seem to be doing pretty well with the QC. I'm mostly familiar with their 250cc cafe and bobber, but this 110cc semi-auto looks to also be a Lifan engine, and these engines get pretty decent reviews over on PlanetMinis. I've got a Lifan-built 125 in my pit bike that I'm happy with so far, but I'm just out of break in and still have yet to really flog it much.

As for CCW, I've heard good things about their quality and product support, so I'm honestly tempted to pick that up at that price. Cool looking bike.

I guess one thing I'd add (as this seems to be the closest competitor), I really like that the CCW bike uses 21" motorcycle tires front and back as opposed to 26" mountain bike tires. I hear guys who own these constantly complaining about how fast they burn through tires.

I see no reason you couldn't do the same mods to that CCW to get it plated that people do to CRF 50's though... same engine architecture, so you know the lighting coil and voltage regulator are available, just a matter of adding wires and switches for lights.

pretty sure the motoped doesnt need to be plated or registered as it is a true moped.
