And now for something completely different......... Does anybody have any experience or opinion on these new chinese made Platinum bikes? There are some dealers who sell these 125cc, 150cc and even 250cc twin choppers. My friend wants to buy a 125, new, for 33.000 baht, but I advised him not to. I told him he'd get what he pays for, a cheap bike that starts rattling after half a year and will have problems. Even though the engines are old air-cooled Honda engines, there's a lot to go wrong on a bike like that, and the next service dealer is 250km away. I told him to rather buy a used Kawasaki Boss 175 (or even a new Honda Wave 100) than a new chinese bike - they are trouble. Am I wrong? Have the chinese been getting better? Any opinions of Platinum owners (if there are any...) welcome!
