    I'm a first time buyer is this a worthy bargain at £995.00 (that's the
    going price for all of them) I ask this coz I've never come across the
    brand...

    You are looking at a Hongdou (Honda) CG 125 which is a paralell badged
    and brought up to date import.This Bike is absolutely Brand New and
    comes with all of the latest EU Certification. It is Manufactured by
    Hongdou in China under licence from Honda. They are not permitted due to
    marketing restrictions to use the Honda brand in Europe. They are ISO
    9001 approved and use all Honda parts, so servicing and spares are no
    problem.
    This Motorcycle is fully assembled, checked and tested and comes pre-
    registered and ready to ride on the new 2004 ?04? plate with 12 months
    Tax, so there are no headaches with paperwork and it can be delivered to
    your home or work for around £125. Not a cheap copy, or an unknown
    brand, This is a Honda CG 125 replica which is paralell badged. The
    frame houses Honda's renouned 'Bullet Proof 4 Stroke OHV Single Cylinder
    Engine' which has proved to be ultra reliable. One of the easiest bikes
    to ride and great fun too

    They're cheap enough for a new bike, but I'd consider buying a £400 CG
    2nd hand, using it until you've passed your test, then selling it on for
    £400.

    The Hongdu is only really worth buying if you're going to use it as a
    commuter bike for several years.

  4. They're pretty good basic bikes. Depreciation is heavy, but as the
    initial purchase price is so low you don't lose a vast amount of dosh.

    Warning - this sounds like it's been copied and pasted from Ebay. Do
    not, on any account, by a new bike from an Ebay merchant. You want a
    proper dealer, with a proper parts and service back-up. you do.

  6. Is this fellow a first time buyer?
    He appears to be a spammer.
    He should at least get a free bike for that excellent advert,
    and not a piece of crap such as a Hongdou.
