If Honda sold so many Cubs or whatever worldwide, why does China pretty much only have CVT vehicles? (Never mind the Symba--how many Chinese buy those?) That is, why didn't they massively copy semi-auto clutches with manual transmissions? Maybe I think wrong, but I would think that a manual transmission and a manual clutch (I'm not sure if a semi-automatic clutch is cheaper or more expensive than a manual clutch) would be cheaper and more reliable than a CVT. Don't tell me the CVT is popular in China only because they do weird things with vehicles over there--transporting objects/people/animals such that shifting/clutching would interfere with operation. I WISH the Sym Wolf were priced more closely to the locally available $1399 or $1599 scooters. Thank you for any useful insight.
