Does anyone havcve any info on all these China made bikes? I was next to a red "Ducati looking" at a light a couple of days ago. It had a 90 degree twin, high pipes and someother things that made it APPEAR to be Italian. When the light turned green, he nailed the throttle . The bike made a lot of noise but was EXTREMELY lazy and slow. What are thgese things, where do you buy them and how much $ do they cost. Im not interested in one for myself but trying to figure out why theres so many of them in Waco.

Possibly a Hyosung. If it was that slow might have been the 250cc version. They are made in Korea. The 250CC are air/oil cooled so it would have a bunch of cooling fins on the cylinder and head. And the 650cc bikes are water cooled and look a lot like a SV650 from a distance.

how high were the pipes? under seat and it wouldn't be a hyosung.

I saw one a few months ago that I would have sworn was a new Vmax. I told the kid walking out to it "hey, nice Vmax, dude!". He chuckled and said it was some chinese 250cc bike. :lol2:
