Just day dreaming here, but if my Husqvarna broke down and I needed an interim bike, how do you think a Chinese bike like the Sinnis Apache would do? Fit some knobblies to the standard 17 inch rims and take it down the trails.

For any of you who watch motovloggers, spicy110 reviewed the Sinnis here:

Here is a pic of the kind of bike I am talking about:

Even late 90s and early 2000s major manufacturer trail bikes are averagely around £1500-2000, with the occasional sketchy non registered bike coming in at 1000, whereas these Chinese offerings can be had brand new from £1200.

Think about it, it makes sense and the engines are bullet proof.

Spicy110 has had great experiences with them.

They are horrendous. I know a couple of people that have had them and after 12 months they are like a bike of 12 years. You get what you pay for

Look at the new swm 125 coming out new this year, completely Italian and said to be no more than 3000 pound.

Lovely bike and am thinking of getting the supermoto to do a bit of summer cruising.

Chinese bikes get a lot of crap, but for the amount you pay and the amount of teens who don't do anything to them but rev them like mad from the get go, what do you expect.

Good cheap bike but are you a gambleing man?

Easy to sell on too.
