And still illegal?
That's more expensive then lmx and all others.
What happend to the 2350 dollar price + shipping?
See what happens when you guys hype a product up, The price goes with it!
We are making millionaires by the hours for China. The prices on Chinese made goods has increased or evn skyrocketed just in the past 4-5 years. 10+ years ago, importing from China was for the brave ones, and the sellers on Chinese mall websites expected or was happy with just a small payout/net result from each sale to export, say 10-15 net result.
As the buyers from all over the world flocked to Chinese websites to get great deals, sellers found that we, the flock of sheep are willing to pay about anything they ask of us. Even for products that are made entirely by Chinese parts, hands and crafts. Products that should be seriously cheap when looking at the prices for labor, raw material costs, etc. But as more and more sellers from China got their eyes open to the extreme pay off possible for export, so has our mind set changed too. We now expect to pay way more for a products for export then the base cost of the same product bought in China. That means that people will happily buy the sur ron at 6k, as an illegal bike, even if the company behind the bike is making a profit at 2350 $.
What used to be nothing by a little time consuming, shopping from China has turned into very time consuming because of all the upcoming millionaires in the making, that on a daily basis is testing the waters for the most extreme profit margins.
I've got friends that buy bulk from China as a living, and for the past 3-4 years pretty much all deals are made locally when visiting China, factories and making or at least try to make the right connections. It seems the only way to get the right deals and correct prices are to spend time in China, learn what the Chinese pay for their goods then find someone who can sell you bulk volume without the need of being a personal millionaire on one sale alone.
Greed is one of mankind's most universal forces, and greed is what is driving even the Chinese market.
If sur ron can sell for 2350 $ locally and still make profit, base price in europe should be less then 3.000 $, including VAT and delivered if correct shipping is brokered. But also in the shipping game there is greed, and the prices us small timers get for one container is for sure making one shipping agent a fat bonus check. For the US market, maybe just above 3.000 mark.
