They arent built nearly as well as anything name brand.. Think of it as a grown up version of the crappy pocketbikes. And yes it is a 200cc.. I guess the only reason to buy one is to commute and throw away when it breaks.

Bad idea for a stunt bike. IMO Pay less money for a name brand hondaaaa dirtbike that you can wreck the out of and keep on riding.

It's a Korean bike with a 200cc engine built by Honda. A coworker pointed them out to me the other day. And they do sell for about $1000 bucks from what he's said. I think he's going to buy 2, one sport and one cruiser type

I think it's a good deal for what it is, but like any bike the value is in the eye of the beholder. Some people just aren't going to go for it no matter what, but they aren't designed for the 600cc+ USA sportbike crowd, they're designed for congested city commuting primarily, but with a sporty look. Very popular concept in East Asia.

My .02 cents thinks they're probably fine bikes, but more along the scooter concept than the kind of motorcycles we are used to. When I was in India earlier this year 125 and 200cc bikes ruled the streets. It was pretty cool actually in the city...but they were barely used at all for any kind of city to city travel.

They are not build by Honda or any of the other big "4".

They are however built around Honda's Blueprints, (w/numerous lawsuits abound), The BIG problem with that is they are NOT built within Honda specs/clearances or metallurgy.

Interesting info, my friend seems to think the engines are built at Honda plants. I'll pass it along.

Appreciate the response, thanks
