More Chinese scooters on their way to Canada

BC based Motorsports Craze is bringing a few models of Baotian scooters to the Canadian market. The Baotian Motorcycle Industrial Company is a large Chinese manufacturer that's been operating 1994. They make motorcycles, scooters, ATV's, motors, and other products.

Motorsports Craze will be bringing in three different Baotian scooters; the air-cooled 50cc Quadro and Lotus, and a liquid cooled-150cc Euro. Prices range from $1299 for the Quadro, $1499 for the Lotus - $1499 and $2399 for the Euro.

Full press release follows:

Motorsport Craze is pleased to announce the arrival of Baotian Scooters in Canada. Baotian Motorcycle Industrial Co., produces 1000 scooters per day; is distributed in 33 different countries; and consistently tops the 50cc scooter sales chart in the U.K. The Baotian factory produces their own engines, and drive-trains allowing them to maintain much higher standards for quality control. They also hold the copyright to the 4 VALVE- 50cc GY6 motor, which is soon to be released this year. We strongly feel that a 4-Valve, 4-Stroke motor is the way of the future, as it meets the stringent California CARB, and EPA emissions standards, without the loss of power, that most 4-stroke 50cc engines are known for.

The Quadro (BT49QT-9S3) The ultimate all rounder, this scooter is lightweight, maneuverable and nippy around town. Whilst economical, it has sports-styled alloy wheels, aluminum silencer and pedal plates.


Optional equipment includes remote starting and factory-fitted alarm. A color coordinated top box is also available for optional fitting.

The Lotus (BT49QT-18E1) The Lotus continues Baotian's move away from generic design of Chinese manufactured scooters. Whilst still utilizing the BT49QT-18 frame and engine, this design encompasses all the key features of recent development including twin halogen headlamps, 2 stroke style "scorpion" exhaust, 12-inch alloy wheels and directional tires. The indicators, both front and rear, are integrated into the bodywork.

This model also benefits from a tachometer. As with all Baotian Canada models, optional accessories are; a standard factory fitted alarm/immobilizer; a color coordinated top box which fits directly to the rear carrier/grab handle. And, as with all models, it is powered by our reliable, efficient, 4 stroke, air-cooled engine.

The Euro (BT151T-2B4) The Euro is appropriately named for it’s European styling and sleek urban lines. This 16” “Big Wheeled” full size commuter is packed with power with an impressive liquid cooled 150cc motor while Front and Rear disc brakes complete the driving experience. It’s loaded with modern design features such as LED lights, and Fold-away passenger foot pedals.

Based on Baotian’s world wide reputation as a quality manufacturer of excellence, and success in the UK we feel that this is the best product to bring into Canada. Baotian China will also debut their scooters in the USA for the first time at the Dealer Expo in Indianapolis this year. Booth # 4105.

The Quadro, Lotus, and Euro will each be backed with a comprehensive 2 year limited warranty. More details will be available soon at www.awesomescooter.com.
