Nope dont belive in buying anything but name brand. I look at it this way if im 5 or 50 miles from my truck or just at the track my life hangs on that bike with every move if you cant trust your bike its not worth haveing. Besides for 1599.00 you can pic up a nice used crf230 or an 80 cc 2 stroke and have a much nicer and more reliable bike and parts are easy to get. Just my opinion though.

i agree with quadfather if you buy a used crf 150 or 230 it will still be going strong long after the cheap imitations are in the heap behind the barn so in the long haul they are a better investment. more fun for your $

They're cheap Chinese knock offs. If you're really set on buying one, become a dealer online and you can get that same one for half that price.

Damn! Those Chinese are industrious.
They must have bought a Honda, dis-assembled it and copied all of the part (making them a little cheaper).:
Now I know where all of that scrap metal that the Chinese bought from us is going!
