Motorbikes 4 All Malvern -
« on: April 12, 2021, 02:03:10 PM »
This is the age old question on whether it makes financial sense to buy a Chinese Motorbike. For me though, and the key part of this review, is the dealer, taking no ownership at all of their relationship and liability with the customer when something goes wrong. They have constantly tried to distance themselves from their responsibility and tried to refer to the UK importer instead  :wnk:

I had a Chinese mega scooter when I was an idiot teenager. What a pile of crap! That was it... 3 years warranty, that if you can reach someone first! Didn't last 1000milles.
I mean no offence to anyone, but these days I try not to buy anything made in China (which I reckon sometimes is a hard task)... Let alone something you trust your live on...
Keep riding 🐟

Deplorable lack of service. Fortunately for me, having read this, I'll never have any dealings with them.

While working at a reputable dealers, we had a chinese bike in for repair, recovered after an accident and insurance authorised replacement parts.

Took 4 months to get the bits from the local also reputable dealer who promptly ordered and had to wait.
Some came in two weeks then dribs and drabs over the months.

The bike was 4 months old when it came in to us.
The lad had a loan scooter from insurance.
He traded the lexmoto pile-o-shiyt in after it had been with us for 2 months for a new CB125F.

Iirc he binned that within a few months.

Moral of the story.
If you're going to bin a bike every couple of months: buy cheap Chinese crap as you'll destroy it before any warranty claim needs to be made.

If you're less accident prone, buy Japanese and it should last fairly well.
