Its a start. comparable to the Hyandai, on the automotive side, which when they first came out were junk. Now they're the new cheaper Honda. Any competition is good particularly on the low side. Some the benefits of free enterprise..

On the other hand, the Hyosung, Korean knock offs of the SVs, never went anywhere...
