Linhai | Is Linhai Still in Business?

atvu 400b 01linhai Linhai | Is Linhai Still in Business?

Big Horn 400cc ATV 4X4 by Linhai Yamaha

Linhai is definitely still in business and getting bigger and better than ever. For some unknown reason we have been getting the question as to whether Linhai is still operational and in business. I really don’t know where this is coming from but I hope it is not of a malicious or deceptive nature. That would be a lose lose situation for everyone involved, especially for people who are looking to buy a reputable and quality product.

We at the Scooters Mopeds Store and Dark Horse (our brick-and-mortar store which is owned by Jim Grosse ) are very confident and proud of our association with Linhai because they offer our customers very reliable products and product service that not many other manufacturers can equal. Our business is very competitive and it would make very poor sense for us to do business with other than good reliable, reputable manufacturers. That is why we handle Linhai products.

Linhai must also recognize our dedication to providing our customers with the best products and service because Dark Horse owner Jim Grosse was just named the sole distributor of Linhai products for the state of Pennsylvania.

Earlier I had written an article on my website about the Linhai Company and I’ll copy it here just to give you an idea of the size and policies of Linhaicompany big pics Linhai | Is Linhai Still in Business?

Who is Linhai?

Linhai is a leader in the manufacture of affordable, high quality motorsport products. Linhai is a manufacturing powerhouse with expertise and experience dating back to 1956.

Why does this matter to you?

Simple. Linhai is committed to being the best. This commitment means they are not afraid to put their name on their products. You’ll notice that with many of the “new entrants” in the North American powersports market, the label you see on the side of the ATV is completely different from the label you see on the VIN plate. It’s not uncommon to see products from 5 different manufacturers being sold under the same brand. Certainly there are some short term advantages to this, but as a consumer of this type of product, should you not be concerned with long term stability? Where will this manufacturer be in 2 years when you need that replacement part? If the company importing the product isn’t confident enough to put the manufacturer’s name on the product they are selling you, what does that tell you about their relationship with the factory?

Tell me more about Linhai…

Linhai Powersport products are produced by the Jiangsu Linhai Group. This company was founded in 1956 and has been developing and manufacturing small engines and machinery for over 50 years.

engines Linhai | Is Linhai Still in Business?Linhai’s experience in engine and machinery development led them to the 2001 release of their first ATV. This ATV was developed for the North American market, a 300cc liquid cooled model and the predecessor for the current 300SE.

The quality of a Linhai engine has been recognized worldwide and their name has become synonymous with quality and reliability.  Many competing Asian manufacturers have approached Linhai to purchase their coveted motors for these alternate “brands” that are “assembled” verses manufactured. Contrary to many manufacturers; Linhai refuses to sell engines. They understand that it would dilute the Linhai brand. The engine is the heart of any ATV, and to build a credible brand, you must have a credible engine.

Linhai’s technological and financial strength has led to many successful joint ventures including the Jiangsu LINHAI-YAMAHA Motor Co.,Ltd. This has expanded the strength of the Linhai Corporation by improving the technology and quality of its products

So I think you can see that Linhai is power sports powerhouse and will not be going out of business in the foreseeable future.

Owning a 50cc Scooter | Advantages and Disadvantages

50cc linhai Owning a 50cc Scooter | Advantages and Disadvantages

50cc Linhai / Yamaha Scooter

Owning a 50cc scooter does have its advantages and disadvantages but as far as I’m concerned the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. I will try to give you some insight into what these items are in this post.

First of all let’s discuss the advantages of owning a 50cc scooter;

  • Fuel Savings – With today’s spiraling gasoline prices everyone is looking for some kind of relief and that relief can be found in a vehicle that gives you excellent gas mileage. A 50cc scooter fills that requirement very nicely because it typically gets between 80 to 100MPG. That could mean a very substantial savings over a 12 month period.
  • Economically Priced – The 50cc scooters can be obtained for a very reasonable price. Normally you can buy a 50cc scooter for somewhere between $900 to $1500 and have a very reliable product. You will see scooters advertised for less money but be very careful when it comes to quality. Cheaper isn’t always better!
  • Maintenance – Maintenance costs on a scooter is very minimal when you compare it to the maintenance required by an automobile. This could mean a very substantial savings for the scooter owner.
  • Insurance – Scooter insurance is very inexpensive compared to other vehicles. In some states you are not required to carry insurance on a scooter but if I were you I would check with my local DOT.
  • License Requirements – In most cases you are not required to have a motorcycle license to drive a 50cc scooter but you need a regular  drivers license. Scooters above 50cc require a motorcycle license. Again, as I said before, check all the details with your local DOT.
  • Versatility – Everyone in the family can normally operate a 50cc  scooter because they are lightweight and do not require shifting. The only thing I would advise that if your children are going to ride please give them some safety instructions and make sure they wear protective equipment such as a helmet and gloves.
  • Style – You’ll find the lineup of the scooters available today are very stylish and come in a great variety. It’s just a matter of personal taste.
  • Flexibility – Because of their size and maneuverability they provide a great advantage when it comes to traffic and it is much easier to find parking for a scooter. This means a great saving in time and stress for the owner.

Owning a 50cc scooter does have some disadvantages as I will point out below;

  • Highway Driving – 50cc scooter cannot be used on highways and interstates because of its limited speed which is 35 mph or below.
  • In most states it’s illegal to carry a second passenger.
  • Very steep inclines and hills may be a challenge for 50cc  scooter.

Owning a 50cc  scooter, because the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages, has become a very popular idea for the many reasons mentioned above. The presence hard economic times have spurned this interest and on top of everything else these scooters are fun to ride. If you check you will find some quality 50cc scooters.
