If you buy Chinese, buy from an actual dealer who will repair it and who will get you parts. If you buy one off the internet - buyer beware! Internet sellers are distributors not dealers. They do not repair or service what they sell, getting parts is a nightmare and expensive. Some won't even honor the warranty. In my humble opinion you will be money ahead in the long run to buy a Jap or Taiwan scooter.

I agree 100% if going for 250cc

Now if you look at 150cc, the gy6 engine used in most can actually be quite dependable and some are worthy buys
