Don't know about the quads,
A bloke at work just purchased a KTM50SX knock off the other day, about 500 clams delivered, it looks like it came out of a showbag, absolute junk.
The forks are just springs, swingarm looks like tin foil etc.
But what you would expect for 500 bucks.
I would not let my kids ride it, looks unsafe, there are heaps better Chinese products out there.

Yep I got one for my young bloke for Christmas...first bike, just to see if he would like riding or just liked the thought of bikes.
He is 5.
It is rubbish, the suspension is non existent, the chain stretches and comes off every ride. Its more like a necklace than a chain really. Even with Loctite every bolt still rattles loose. The forks twist easily. The Air Filter is rubbish and too close to the ground and sucks in every bit of grit in the atmosphere.
In saying all this, you get what you pay for. I knew it was going to be rubbish before I bought it. I bought it with the intention of it being a short term thing of around 6 months to see if he enjoys riding bikes without spending a heap of cash. I think it was $300.00.
It has also had a bit if a hard life so far, apart from the usual stacks he ghostied into the back of my car at full speed. (a set of Plastics) and last weekend I may have forgot it was behind the car and reversed over it........PROPERLY (another set of plastics and forks).
After sales service has been good enough and all in all I reckon I have got my moneys worth easily.
He will get a JR 80 for his birthday in a couple of months now that I know he will stick with it.
So it has been exactly what I wanted it for.
Horses for courses really.
