“The Chinese Negotiator”
opportunities.Our trading company explored many of these business plans and elected for a number of reasons to pass on them.
We decided that America was going to be rediscovering the motorscooter and we thought it would be a good idea if the scooter they discovered was ours.
Many trips to China and with lots of help from my partner’s family, we obtained marketing rights in North America from a respected factory that wanted to work with us. The whole process wasn’t easy. . . there were many models that were flown over for testing that didn’t pass muster. . . and finally, after nearly three years, we gave final approval to our present model line of scooters. All our scooters are certified by the very strict DOT and EPA tests that govern all USA motor products. In addition, our MetroRider line has also passed the stringent California environmental tests.
During the time we were working with the factory, I was busy locating and finalizing an exclusive distributorship agreement with a really great person who runs an extremely successful business and like me, believes in the future of motorscooters in America.
I am continuing to work with our China factory, importing products and developing new models. . . wait ’til you see our “Zoomer” line. . . and in my spare time will be selling a specialty line of MetroRiders to the martial artists that visit Uechi-ryu.com.
Check out the video clip showing the first two models I’m offering for sale. If you live in Florida, you can schedule a test drive and workout at the same time. 🙂
