So what's the deal? Which ones are good, which ones not so good? Rumors are some are made with the same (not clones) engines that go into the Yamaha and Honda scoots. There's so many different brands but sooo many look the same. I figure the point of this thread is to educate some of us on which of these Chinese Scoots are viable alternatives to the Japanese ones. So far through the Search I've found Vento highly reccommened but not much mention of anything else other than the Chektak(sp) which is a retro look/vespa copy. I'm mainly interested in the 150cc bikes so that my girlfriend can ride too and I too can have some fun with and get some grins. These TGBs look cool but how do you know if it's junk or not???? TIA!
