I have the skyteam 125 which is the same as the pitster, currently stripped and then rebuilt ,almost finished, good bike but what it boils down to is Chinese quality to Honda quality, resale value, you can still get decent money back from the Honda when time to sell comes along, Chinese wont, I know I have owned a few, also here in the UK, it will be a lot easier to insure as the insurance companys in the UK don't really want to touch the Chinese copies, the ones that do want silly money and usually refuse to fully cover them incase of theft or damage as there cheap and easy to steal, Honda is a proper brand name so hopefully wont come across on paper as a monkeybike which its not really, should appeal to a wider market as theres lots of custom variations and bling lined up for it to suit varied tastes, also you get a decent warranty, pretty much sums it up in the UK!
