2011 Update on brands we work with and the marketplace

Now a 2011 short update on many of the
manufacturers we get calls on:

MRP is a third party solutions provider. We are not the original importer for many of these brands we offer third party parts and in some cases original parts made by the companies that we acquired from other companies that have closed or by distributors.

Aprilia – owned by Piaggio Group. MRP carries a ton of parts compatible with Aprilia scooters. Keep in mind many of the original 2000-2004 Scarabeos, SR 50s, used the same suppliers as Malaguti scooters which we have a ton of parts for. From brake pads to carbs the original carbureted versions are the same as Malaguti. The AM6 engine on the RS50 is something we carry.

ADLY MOTO - Taiwanese brand. Formerly had offices in Texas which closed a few years back. MRP has a lot of OEM parts for both Scooters and ATVs since we purchased United Motors and some of their dealers. You can find these OEM and racing parts at the MRP website. Adly was selling to Dixie Sales, Lambretta USA, Hammerhead, United Motors and several other companies.

Yamaha / Honda / Suzuki we mostly focus on the replacement brand parts like NG Disk brakes and generic light bulbs, we carry a full line of racing upgrades for the Japanese brands.

Zongshen – MRP is a partner to Zongshen USA and we carry a ton of parts for them. We have more Zongshen ZMD parts than anyone. As of 2011 several importers of ZMD have closed including DEVON Motorcycles so MRP is the largest source of Zongshen parts in the USA at the moment since DEVON went out of business.

Hyosung - Hyosung North America has been in the USA for several years. Sold by Alpha Sports ( now closed ) Kasea Motorsports ( now closed ) and by United Motors ( Now closed ) some bikes are sold by ATK currently. MRP has a large selection of OEM and aftermarket Hyosung parts since acquiring United Motors of North America. You can find all the Hyosung parts on our website. Some faster moving parts we are importing directly from Hyosung suppliers.

United Motors of America aka UM, UM Scooters, United Motors. This company imported scooters and motorcycles into the United States for over 15 years. MRP has the full selection of parts that UM had in their warehouse since we purchased their assets. The company had more Hyosung OEM parts than anyone in North America. So if you need OEM Hyosung, UM, Wangye ( same a Mod or Baccio imported by UM ) then we have these. The company also imported CPI Scooters.

American Scooters (FL), Xtreme Scooters (IL) both distributors as of 2011 are now closed. Both imported QJ scooters now supported by MRP. We have all the Chinese scooter parts for these brands on the MRP website.

MuZ – Motorrad went out of business back in 2003. MRP has all the CPI parts for their scooters.

Cubik K aka Keeway Southeast. This was the Southeast distributor for QJ / Keeway China. MRP purchased all their assets in 2008. We have the full selection of parts for all the Keeway scooters from the Hurricane 50cc to the hard to find 150cc.

BZ – Benzhou Group sold to several importers and private label companies in the USA. MRP purchased one of their distributors in liquidation and we have many of their OEM parts.

QJ – This is a common term for Qiangjiang the company sold vehicles and continues to sell vehicles in the USA to several Chinese importers. Since 2007 over 9 of their distributors have closed including Xtreme, Diamo, Vento, TNG, among others. MRP has the largest selection of QJ parts in North America.

Vento USA – Out of business. MRP has the full selection of Vento parts from China using the same part numbers as the factory. More OEM Vento parts than anyone in North America from GY6 to the Jog Minarelli engine. Plus the hard to find QMB139 Vento versions.

Dinli has pulled out of the United States.  We are able to obtain some items from China, but this is uncommon. We recommend calling Peirspeed for any Dinli questions they have some inventory left.

Diamo USA – LS Motorsports - MRP has the parts for all the Diamo scooters, ATVs, UTVs, and Motorcycles.

Italjet America - MRP has the parts for all the 2007 Italjet scooters and some for the pre-2005 units.

Hammerhead parts:  MRP only does the aftermarket racing parts for this brand of kart. A few OEM parts are cross-compatible.

Carter Brothers: MRP only does the aftermarket racing parts for this brand of kart. A few OEM parts are cross-compatible.

SYM – Back in the Day MRP was Malaguti USA, we imported the first SYM Scooters in the USA. We only imported 3 models, so we are familiar with the line and dropped them. We still have some OEM parts for the DD50, Jet Euro, and other models since then we have added some more parts since Carter Brothers burned down and dealers keep looking for parts. We mostly offer SYM racing upgrades, but we do what we can to help the consumers, we get like twenty calls a day for parts for SYM.

Inc. aka BRISTERS, KenBar, Yerfdog, Kartco, KINT, Thunder Karts, USA Karts, Straight Line, Nitrous Go-Kart are ALL closed.  Some parts are compatible, but you need to track the internet for what is out there. The companies have been closed for some time.

Kymco – We suggest calling KYMCO USA who happens to have the largest parts warehouse in the Americas for KYMCO parts, they have the highest degree of investment of any Asian brand in North America as of 2011 they fully own the US operation and from their US warehouse supply many distributors in Central and South America. No other Taiwanese company has the level of support or investment of Kymco they are number one in Taiwan exports, production, and branding.

Chinese Brands: 
Jonway - We have a great relationship with Jonway we work closely with them. We offer many racing parts for the JONWAY lineup.

QLINK – This private label Taiwanese owned company has imported from CF MOTO, Zongshen, Adly, 
ZNEN and other Chinese companies. We carry a wide selection of upgrades for them.

New brands such as Tao Tao, Ice Bear, Motobravo, Wildfire, Roketa, SUNL now Massimo- these price point Chinese brands are new to the market and sell mostly on price. They don't do any consumer ads and largely market themselves to the low end dealers who are looking for price value, they don't market within the industry so far when we reach out to them to educate American dealers or consumers the response has not been a positive one. So when dealers call us there isn't much we can say except we have no experience with the price point brands. We keep trying to work with any brand, but it really comes down to management wanting to reach across the board and get product into the hands of fellow industry developers this is a very difficult thing to do with Chinese management if they don't understand the industry outside of volume price based sales. Great brands in the USA are made because of aftermarket relationships. Honda, Harley are great because thousands of companies make parts for them. Same applies to the scooter industry. Kymco is the largest of all Taiwanese brands because more companies also help promote them. More companies make accessories for them. This is something these companies haven't understood yet.

CF MOTO – One of the largest OEMs in Asia MRP is a partner provider of racing parts to CF MOTO USA. We have had a working relationship with the company from day one in America. We carry both stock and racing parts for their most popular models.

MRP has the targest selection of Chinese & Asian Scooter Parts. Scooter Parts & Accessories - America's Largest Selection - Vespa, Genuine, Kymco, Honda, Yamaha, Chinese only at Martin Racing Performance!
