Chinese copies sometimes do not succeed!

We know of a Chinese Ebike Factory in Wuxi who sent their director to Italy to buy an Prima Joe Fly and bring it back to the mainland to copy (Well almost!).

Unfortunately for this factory withing 6 months of launching their product some 30 or 40 other E Bike Factories had their own copies of the copy!

We could not sell it as a single seater in the Far East so we added a longer sadlle and sold hundreds on the Thai Marketplace.

Pillion space is important to the Asians.
