There are hundreds of factories in China...all making cheap, inferior scooters that aren't safe or roadworthy. Pictures of factories aren't all that impressive. I'd be more impressed if they had quality control and used parts that don't fall apart just by looking at them hard. Have you seen the wiring on these things? Ridiculous.

There are also clandescent factories in China that only assemble scooters, they get the cheapest parts avialable from other suppliers. The distributor's in the U.S. orders the scooters under the brand name they sell. The Company then goes out to their warehouse gets the scoots puts whatever name the distributor wants on them and ships. The factory in China doesn't care where the parts came from, or what kind of quality. But the consumer in the U.S. finds out. There are no copyright or patent laws in China. Anything goes.

Hi Tracy, You can get parts for ZNEN scooters from partsforchinesescooters.com or scooterworks.com Also any Flyscooter dealer most likely has it in stock. I was even able to talk to a live person at Flyscooters. In hindsight, I wish I got the Fly. I would gladly pay the extra $200 for being able to reach someone to listen and get me a solution.
What's most important to me is the ability to get support after the purchase. With Lance, you can buy online or thru a dealer, but either way I have heard horror stories.
Once you decide to make the scooter purchase, you hope for the happiest ending (at least I did). For good times and memories. My daughter purchased the Milan and loved it, as a father who tinkers with power sport vehicles, I was happy she could join me on two wheels.
We read about online Chinese scooter dealers, and decided to NOT to go with anonymous companies. I read several reviews and blogs about the inability to purchase parts, or even get support. I figured I could take on any mechanical problem, and the warranty would cover the rest.
After purchasing from a local dealer, I felt pretty confident my daughter would love two wheels, and we could go rallying together. The first month, we had issues with the engine. The dealer tried to fix the problem, but had a very very hard time getting parts, support, from Lance. What is the deal? How can you sell a product with "warranty" and not come thru? I took matters into my own hands, tried calling Lance. Not only did they transfer me from one person to another, I could not get anyone to talk to me about my issue, and couldn't get the parts when I was still "under warranty". Heck I almost drove down there I was so furious.
Overall the support was the biggest issue. Such a big company should care for the customers first and foremost. I should at least be able to reach a support or customer care person. My last resort now is just to warn others from having to go thru this ordeal. The experience has taught me just not to buy a second scooter from Lance.

Been noticing some major issues with the Lance line of scooters. Local shop was selling these, went to go back to possibly purchase and he discontinued the line due to sticking throttles, overheating problems, engines seizing and no support form Lance. Seems like they are overpriced for what you get and no warranty support from Lance.

I am going after lance for selling the '08 milan 150 with defective parts and not only not repairing it but not even being able to get the correct parts let alone disclosing there is a defect.
Problem began with a leaking valve cover gasket. rolled into a series of other problems.Upon further digging these scooters are still being sold. the lance milan 150 '08 is deemed unsafe and Lance/ZNEN preys on customers limited knowledge in regards to our legal rights The entire '08 line needs to be investigated and if you haven't contact a lemon law attorney and get it handeled

Since my last posting, Lisa with Lance Power Sports contacted us directly and has made arrangements with us to fully repair or replace the scooter. We look forward to getting back on the road!

Lance has reneged on promises in the past. I hope for you they honor this one. I still wouldn't buy a Lance scooter, period.

I understand completely! I have rebuilt six top ends on Chinese scooters and everyone has failed between 1500 and 1800 miles. I have a friend who changed his oil every 500 miles and his made it to 2400. So you should save on fuel cause you will be pushing it before you've filled the tank up ten times! Has anyone got more miles out of Chinese junk!

No. It is not a good investment. If you value your daughter's safety get her a Honda or a Yamaha. They have proven track records with solid companies behind them. Chinese scooters do not. Lance is a generic Chinese scooter. Spend a little extra for a quality scooter.

Yes I love my 150 CC Lance. I got it off the internet. Like any scooter you need to take care of it-by dealer or yourself.
When on the road these things shake around. Always check out your scooter before riding it.
You will get many years of riding if you take care of your scooter.
