Well, the KTM 390 is a popular little ride...made by Kymco, as well as all 60s and 70s Hondas...the Venti scooters (chinese) have a great reputation as well...may not be as bad as some ppl think..

Looks like your right. ..Baja in India is making the 125, 200 and 390...kymco is doing the BMW 450. ..

I have a buddy who bought a 390 Duke so he did all the research. He really likes the bike especially after adding a pipe, fuel controller and a dyno tune. Too bad he's like six foot three and looks like a monkey f---king a football while riding it!

I've decided to get the bike (http://www.cscmotorcycles.com/CSC-TT...p/ztt250-w.htm).

Believe me, I've heard/read all the reasons to not buy a Chinese bike from people who have never owned one. I believe this one will be worth the risk. If not then I'll be out some money and life will go on. That being said I will leave a review of the bike after I get it sometime in March or April.

Looks like fun. Worth a try. One year warranty looks good.
