This one caught my attention.

Quote
GPX MOTO TSE250: $5600
This is an Asian-made two-stroke that is based on the Yamaha WR200 from the ’90s. It has oil-injection, an electronic power valve and a six-speed gearbox. GPX equips this bike well, with handguards, frame guards, a headlight, a trip meter, a skid plate, tapered handlebars and a number of billet parts, including the footpegs and triple clamps. From the same importer as Pitster Pro.

But $5,600 is NOT tempting enough, especially when you consider proven and reliable brand new left-over offerings from Europe and Japan are not much more.

Plus what is the dealer and aftermarket support for GPX?  Zero!  And what is the re-sale value for a GPX model?  Zero, again!

I also read how the GPX-supplied air filter cage fits TERRIBLE (letting lots of dirt in) and yet the seemingly identical KTM/Husqvarna air filter cage fits the GPX perfect.  Looks like China cannot even copy things correctly.  Makes you wonder what mistakes are inside the engine or suspension.

I spotted that one too.  And then when I saw it was the same importer as Pitster Pro I noped out. 

I agree that resale is basically zero.  Parts are probably a non issue, you can probably just fit parts for whatever bike they stole the design from :)
