The world biggest motorcycle exhibition, EICMA Open link in a new window,  isn't without surprises. First there was the whole eruption of Berlusconi's resignation on the day he was supposed to be at Eicma (link Open link in a new window), and then the police raided one of the stands.

The Italian Financial Police (Guardia di Finanza) came to Eicma and took away three scooters from the Chinese "manufacturer" Kaitong Motor Open link in a new window.  The three scooters, called YB 250 were complete rip-offs of Piaggio's MP3 scooter.

Kind of stupid from the manufacturer. The fact that they rip-off anything in China is a well known and documented fact, but then to be so stupid to try to sell and market them in the country that designed the thing is blatantly ... stupid.

I hope they put the people behind bars, but as usual, we'll treat the Chinese with kid gloves (especially considering that China holds most of the European debt...)
