they are available in Australia for around $2500 or a bit more and have been for at least a few months.
I was disappoiinted that OZ had them and I couldnt get one. at least I paid a respectable price, extremely happy.

Nice, and excellent value, but 125cc? They need one with the 250cc engine in it.

yes $2500 maybe expensive for this bike in Australia, $1200 I paid, I dont call that expensive.
for a couple of hundred dollars a 200cc engine is available elsewhere that will drop straight in, looks identical

No need to speak Chinese when you live just across the pond from another member of our little fraternity who does!

exactly Dave, so for some it seems if you buy a Japanese car or product then you may have problems getting parts because you dont speak Japanese, or buying a Mercedes or BMW , you need to speak German, ????

I'm currently in Manila attending a literary festival, but sadly have no time to get down to Sebu. It looks like you have things well under control, but If you need any help with parts let me know. I have some mates who race in Zhu Hai and go from HK every other week or so.

I ride to work, that toy would be ludicrously inadequate in the role, I could drive a car, or take public transport, but those options are far more costly, in many ways.

Ludicrously inadequate?? in which way, I've spent time in Melbourne and many other cities in Australia and other countries, In densley populated cities I've found the small bikes the best to get around on, My big bikes here in my city are impractical , unfortunately.

Much as we all like a laugh and hate to waste money, that reply doesn't tell us much.

Anywhere that motorbikes are mainstream transport, it's lightweight bikes they use.
