It's obviously considered a sin to a number of our more forthright forum members, but I'm sure you're more than capable of making up your own mind...

If you're asking about quality and reliability, Chinese mopeds, scooters and motorcycles can be quite variable in the standard that comes off the assembly lines. The usual issues are switchgear of a poor standard and crappy electrics, which is a shame, as the engines are usually pretty good.

One should note that Piaggio and Peugeot, along with the Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese, have shifted production to China for their low-end models. Quality on these are better than the badge-branded models that have proliferated, globally.

I've worked on a number of Chinese scooters and there are a few good brands, especially those that are owned by companies outside of the People's Republic of China.
