China , like every other country that is in manufacturing , will change thier product to meet the demand of the seller. Simple capatilism.
What people want and the demand for is cheap accessary laden shit that is all bling and super cheap.
This first wave of scooters is going to die a painful, pitiful death.
Eventually , if people in this country still demand little plastic scooters, the Chinese , like any other people, will produce quality goods if thats what the DEMAND is for. Right now , its not.
In regards to contacting the manufacturer, thats hopeless at this point. To make those scooters at such a price, the manufacturer has sublet out all thier parts and assemebly to 56 different places that have long since folded and recreated themselves as something else, and are making something else. Thats how they are able to make a 799 scooter. No quality control, everything subbed out, no accountability.
Sorry for the quick rant. I sometimes bristle when the subject of "Chinese Shit" comes up. I take offense and disagree with anyone that thinks that the Chinese or any other ethnic group is predisposed to making cheap/poor quality goods. They are not. They are building what consumers will pay for and if done right, they can ( and very likely will ) build quality stuff when there is a demand for it.
I remember when made in Japan meant crap, and now we look at camera bodies to make sure they are made there and sigh with relief when they are.
Also take a look at Korea in regards to the Hyundai - in the 80's a cheap , rip off of another car with not so great quality. I dont want one now, but don't be seduced by the notion that a country, a people , or a culture cannot produce quality goods.
But dont put one of those things in my yard. I owned one for 8 hours before someone took it away and that was enough.
