    Lexmoto dropped two of their lowest priced models, that were manufactured by DIHAO “low consumption”. Dihao offers models under the brand Haotion, the discontinued models were the Arrow and Vixen.
    Romets subsidiary brand in Poland named Zipp offers the once Lexmoto Arrow as their Maniac 125.

    FOSHAN FOSTI MOTORCYCLE MANUFACTURING CO., LTD.
    This manufacturer does not show up on either the top 50 producers or exporters lists, manufactures FOSTI, ZNEN, FXD series motorcycles.
    Their F31 model is being imported by Lexmoto as their ZSA 125 and by the Polish brand Junak as their 126, also all of the Junak 122 models are soured through Fosti as well as their 127.

    The Lexmoto ZSF and Aspire are manufactured by Tianda, that purchases component parts out of Jianshe.

    You could call Tianda a third tier manufacturer, Yamaha-Jianshe-Tianda.
    Same as Suzuki-Qingqi-Dalong(Pioneer)
    The engines are Suzuki and Yamaha designs, sourced from Chinese/Japanese JV manufacturers.

    For example the Sinnis Apache is out of Qingqi and the Lexmoto Adrenaline out of Dalong.
    The differences are typically slightly better quality out of the tier two and often higher prices come with that.

    Also the new Sinnis RS125 is sourced direct from Jianshe, that offers it with a 4-valve water cooled engine, but not the model offered in the UK it comes with the standard YBR125 engine. I suspect the new engines will at some point conjure divisions between tier two and tier three. That being the tier two will eventually only offer the higher level models and not sell them to others?

    Zontes is not a British branded Chinese made motorcycle, it is actually a Chinese marketing brand for Haojiang who also uses the brand name Kinden.

    They are offering the S250 Phantom in the UK and also Ireland.
    Price is the UK
    2,699.00 GBP = 3,529.82 USD


    Price in Ireland.
    4,500.00 EUR = 4,989.16 USD



    The S250 seems to be readily available in the UK market, here is a UK dealer offering them for.
    2,499.00 GBP = 3,268.25 USD

    Haojiang has spent a good amount of time developing the S250, its power plant is based on a Suzuki twin cam engine. An engine Suzuki still has in production and is offered in their DR-Z250 Enduro. It is rated at around 29hp, the Zontes is only claiming just under 25hp for its EFI version.
