I still want an msx....I wouldn't trust that knockoff mess. I'm not betting my life on 10k.
30,000+(heard one guy paid 35.5k) for a 9hp minibike? I may buy a knockoff, put a 160cc motor in it, loctite every bolt/nut, and save 15-20k. Oh yeah, NOBODY is going to steal a Chinese knockoff(maybe plaster Made in China stickers all over it just to be sure), the first person with a van to drive by the Honda, it's GONE!!!
The import tax does kind of ruin the small-bike appeal, but it's still not terrible. I don't think you'd be buying it for flat-out speed runs, anyway. Lol
For 30k, I'd rather buy a classic monkey for the giggle-factor of riding in full leathers.
