I think he was trying to point out that there is a company producing cheapsh#t bikes under the name "hero honda" that has no affiliation with honda (but they use the same script/font). Some of those pics are a riot, I've seen more substantial fork tubes on bicycles!! :lol:
EDIT: hey it actually IS affiliated with Honda, so it's not a ripoff after all....just a joint venture to produce 100cc bikes

You folks need to get out more. Honda sells a bazillion small-displacement motorcycles in third-world countries. When I was in Brazil 15 years ago every motorcycle was one of these tiny-engined, spindly-forked things. Some of them were even styled like sportbikes.
