Just saw this article in Powersports Business,

About CF MOTO USA being here to stay. The truth is they are pulling out of the scooter business for the USA. Its terrible for anyone who was a Scooter Only dealer that was taking on the line. Its a real shame, we continue to import certain CF MOTO parts, but without new models it makes no sense to push a brand that basically did a terrific job when they started and couldn't stand the fire so got out. I've reached out to CF MOTO about helping with this situation because I feel they are falling into the same trap many Chinese distributors have fallen into being that they stop supporting old models. Dealers shouldn't have to order entire carbs or engines if they need one small part. Thats what happens as you start scaling back on models.

Building a brand isn't about cutting your looses sometimes its about staying the course. One of the things that makes Honda great is third party support. Companies endorse Honda because they can make the same accessories for Honda over and over again. Being that I run a third party parts supplier I spent a lot of time promoting CF MOTO with the former US President Lev and marketing guys from Matt Clayton to sales reps. I think Matt is probably one of the smartest guys in the business if only they would listen to him more often.

I know they just hired two new heads for the company formerly of Polaris, but I haven't been able to get a hold of anyone. I think CF MOTO still has the potential to be one of the great brands should they try. The Z6 despite being promised one and attempting to buy one to develop parts we couldn't find one in South Florida for the last two years.

I know Matt has tried for us and many other dealers, but its terrible when the message gets lost in translation somewhere.

In the meantime being that MRP acquired two if the CF MOTO private label importers we have a lot of UTV and Scooter parts to sell. So we want CF MOTO to do well in the states. The question is how do you help another brand that is pulling back?
