    HI Monsterman.

    As you could have seen from this site Motozone is out of business but the shop is now called Xtreme Bikes Link removed
    and run by one of the old partners Alex. He has promised to take care of Motozones old debts... He has put up his own message on this site a few months ago.He blames the problems on his old partner Cyril alias Jem who was supposed to have run away with Motozones money and staying abroad in the fear of legal problems here. Anyhow I saw his message a month ago on the Thaisuperbikes site:
    Hey Guys,

    I m back next month with a real shop and a real dealership ( brand new
    bikes, parts, servicing ) only with YAMAHA stuff.

    See you soon

    Jem / Cyril

    Believe it when I see it, the dealership is supposed to be run under Yamaha France patronage and they will have all models in stock....

    It strange how here in Thailand good looking motorbike shops which goes bankruptcy need a partner or an employee to put the blame on... The fault is never mismanagement and bad business!!!

    ANYBODY HAVE GOOD OR BAD EXPERIENCE OF Xtreme Bikes honouring the debts of Motozone. I remember that many people did put up messages that they have paid for bikes and books not delivered but after alex assured them that everything will be cleared everybody got silent. What is the situation now. Maybe Mr Degerth have inside information.

    I asked Alex this very same question when he had finished his rebranding exercise.
    He had told me previously that he had been abble to recover some of the debt owing from Cyril, but he was goibg to make good on what was still outstanding.
    Under his new flag he modified this stance somewhat, now saying that he had paid off what he could.
    Let's hope that they are better than Motozone.

    They fixed my MT01 perfectly, even after 100K of my repair money was nicked by Jem, they also sold my TDM for me with no hassles so I'd deffinately say they're making a proper go of it this time round. Good luck I say.

    I met the UK guys who are behind Extreme at Chiang Mai nbike week , they seemed very enthusiastic, professional and knowledgable .
    It seems the french connection ****ed them up when it was Motozone.
    I have bought parts from them .

    Well , Iam sure most of you guys know the score. Do you really expect a yamaha dealership coming to Thailand with Jem/Cyril being the owner. Some how I dont think so.

    I dont want to go into detail, due to other members of some of the forums getting upset,but I can tell you 90% of peoples money, books, injury or problems incured by motozone have now been resolved by myself and the team.

    I will let you make up your own minds about Jem/cyril, I know something though, I was ripped big time.

    To Jem,

    What's your side of the story?
    As long you remain silent, you allow people to put the blame on you(and give a bad name to French people)...
    So, speak out!

    Hi all,

    well I am unfortunately one of the person that get ripped off by Cyril Rouhani/Motozone (Aka Jem, Marsura, whatever...), and one of the 10% of people that the debt is not solved by the new managers (Alex and Champ). I loaned 3 millions of baht to Motozone last year, gone, and I had 2 bikes in the shop (one MV Agusta Brutale + 1 CBR), gone ...

    So don't trust Cyril, he is telling everybody stories and lies, that is for sure. Is he crazy? I think so. He threaten to kill me, "it is my last day in Thailand" and so on, but I am still here, and waiting for some action not words as he is used to.

    I read his post that he cannot defend himself because he is not in Thailand ... That makes me smile, because he knows he stole all that money but still believe everything is fine and he can live the high life wherever he is ... If you read this, Cyril, I am curious what you have to say ... Just to laught.

    As for Xtremebikes/Motozone, Alex told me that I have to go in court ... And he doesnt want to know anything concerning my 2 bikes, he said it was between me and Cyril, but I bought those 2 bikes from Motozone and they were in their premises, so go figures ...

    Anyway,Motozone IS xtremebikes, just the name is changed but the company is the same, and according to the Thai law, they are responsible for the previous directors, so ...

    I am happy that some cheated customers are taken care of.

    Thai believe in Karma, what you have done will come back to you, so Cyril will pay one day I am sure of that.

    Regards all.

    Fred

    Sorry to hear about your loses Brutale?Zen Fred the Motozone ripoff saga is another sorry story in the annals of BIG BIKE business in Thailand.

    Siam Superbike
    wranglers
    Motozone
    and the people who are having problems with Siam racing :no books after 2 years and no customs papers so no registration possible and no refunds either.

    Hi All,

    so Cyril/Jem is coming back to Thailand with a Yamaha dealership and a strong Thai partner ... hahahah. Good, so he can faces the police and the judge and explain himself.

    His attitude is still the same, daring, but we are used to it.

    Cyril/Jem is only words, no action. And if action there is, he will hide behind somebody, like his ex-girlfriend for Motozone or the new girlfriend/family for the new dealership.

    I guess he will say it is a conspiracy ... everybody is against him ... A lot of customers have been cheated, and there is no fire without smoke ...

    It is my last post, Cyril/Jem is still the same and he will not change. I don't want to argue with him anymore, it is pointless. Let's the justice do its work.

    And if you want to do business with Cyril, make your own opinion.

    Regards All

    Guys,
    I have been away from TH for some while now (at sea), so i havent been able to read this forum. As far as my situation with motozone/xtremebikes and my bike, there is still some things to be fixed, but i'll meet up with Alex in a few days, and i'm sure he will be helpful. I'll update here on my progress.
    As for Jem, i dont think he can shop up in TH ever again. Maybe under a new name and new passport. I happen to know that both cops and immigration are on the lookout for him. Now thats just too bad. So maybe a Yamaha dealer in Kabul is the only option for him.
    Brgs,
    Tom

    Never met Jem or had any dealings with Motozone, but perhaps he could join forces with Reed Resnikoff, aka Captain Chaos, from Asian Motorcycle Adventures, also wanted by Thai immigration & cops for his motorcycle tour stuff up in Laos, abandoning his Thai employee, illegal tours & illegal border crossings.
    But as RR somehow managed to slip through the noose on the way out, I don't doubt that with the right connections you could slip back in with the right escort at immigration.
    However, should either of them manage to do this I'm sure there would be a happy welcoming committe from some not so happy people.

    How about setting up a blacklist in this forum?

    There are so many crooks around and it could be helpful to put them together in one file.

    And I nominate Peter from Siamsuperbike (supposingly hiding in the Udon area) to be listed, too, no matter if some of you guys sympathize with him for being a nice old man to talk to ...

    PLS PLS

    No Blacklist mentality, that is an old communist strategy developed by STASI in former East Germany and exported to Laos Cambodia and Vietnam. Everything is well documented but not transparent. Let us keep the old system by posting accurate own experience on the post by your own name so that no misstake can be made in the name of the board.

    I find it good and healthy that at times, very rarely, people let their barriers down, be it Monsterman or now David, both moved me deeply.
    Yes this board is about motorcycling but what endears these tough biker heroes to me is they are after all human.

    Thanks to all, it's good to get some well founded opinions here.
    As long as positive attitudes remain this forum will stay as helpful and informative as it is.
