    If they cant be sold with a plate, how many do they hope to sell??

    Who would want them???

    Don't really understand the logic, perhaps some body can explain?

    Chris- the 3% excise tax is included when purchased, so the bike is legal in Thailand, just not legal to ride on the road - ie a trail bike.

    I'm going to get one...these quality control marks on the wheel nut sell it to me..



    They must be trying to make them more reliable, no manufacturer wants vast amounts of warranty claims, not good for the bottom line...

    There appears to be a few mods that can be done to squeeze a few more horses out of it..

    So a Blue 200 will do the trick..



    Don't wait for me, I'll catch you up.....

    Interesting to talk about the engines because a lot of the Tuk Tuk (motorcycle taxi's) use Lifan engines which they get 1,000,000km KM out of. Maybe many repairs along the way but they get some serious KM's out of them.

    Tuk Tuk engines are two-stroke LPG right?

    They are -- but the type you see in places like Mae Sai, Chiang Rai & Nan with all the chrome , almost like a carriage are Lifan engines i'm told.

    This baffled me, cos I didnt know LPG could 2 stroke.. But you see the smoke, and you see the tank.. so came to the same conclusions..

    I did also wonder tho, if it wasnt LPG 4 stroke and just horribly burning oil ?? But it sounds 2 strokey too..

    Personally I would not touch the thing with a ten foot barge pole..

    There is a reason the price is so low and the reason is poor materials and poor assembly quality, anyone who has been to China and seen the stuff being flogged there will agree with me.

    Good luck getting back to the shop in 6 months time with a claim for bits that has fallen off or something that is broken, I am quite sure it will be the standard run around about how did you use it, did you ride it on the road blah blah blah...

    Just my 10 satangs worth..

    ipods.. BMWs.. Harleys (well ok i'll give you on the Harley )..

    I do actually agree.. I wouldnt want to be the tester on this and would look to spend more on a known japper bike.. But it wasnt so long ago japanese stuff was 'jap crap' and one day, probably soon, they will address the QC and produce higher value machines at with better materials and tolerances.

    But probably not just yet.

    Talking with Herman this evening, who works for a BMW Motorad dealership in Germany. Guess what engine is in the BMW G 650 (read below photo for answer)?




    L-I-F-A-N

    i'm serous --- quite interesting that "BMW" chose this engine, no more rotax.
