    This is an supplementary page referencing some of the Chinese manufacturers found on the 2007 EPA list that are additional to the others in this forum.








    This list is free to change at anytime. When we receive information about one of these manufacturers they may be put into their own separate thread. Additionally, since this list in not complete, manufacturers may also be added.

    CC, Anyone

    Who is/are Chongqing Sunrise Motorcycle Industry Co Ltd?
    They identify Lifan as one of their clients.

    I'm very interested in the scooter in the picture on the following page:

    http://www.allproducts.com/manufactu...727111247.html

    In Lithuania the police used scooters with a roof/cover setup similar to this, although I think they were smaller bikes. I haven't seen anything like this on the road in Chongqing. It certainly would be more effective than a large umbrella over the bike

    All links I can find on it go to Hi-Bird. They could be a trading group by the company.

    Galaxy motorcycles has EPA approval and is looking for dealers.
    Their XTR 250 won the Chinese 250 class in the taklimaken Rally last may.

    Eddie,

    I had a chance to see the dirt and motard versions of these bikes pop up in chengdu before I left. They seem to be gaining popularity in China and look like a good ride!

    They have any plans for new models coming out?

    I know a water cooled 250 is being tested now and that they have plans for a water cooled 125 or 150 as well. I don't believe that they have started that model yet.

    I did hear that their 125 passed EEC certification.

    That sound promising. You think they will produce a more passenger friendly motorcycle in the future?

    I'm not sure, but it would be a wise move.

    I've heard that a U.S. certification lab has set up shop in China to do the EPA and DOT certs on Chinese motorcycles wanting to be legally imported into the states. Anybody know who is the company or where they are located?
    Regds,
