I see that these British designed engines are now being made in China. Do any forum members think that this exporting of technology is desirable?
 
As there are fewer moving parts in these units, perhaps prices will soon drop below the level of the prices of ASP and Super Custom etc. 4 strokes

I do not believe it is desirable, except to the few who can get more profit. A certain vacuum cleaner munufacturer comes to mind. We, in the UK lose jobs and end up as second class service providers. As well as getting BANKrupt.

It is not desirable, yet when the government, lets a contract for Railway Trains to be manufactured in Japan, and assembled in the UK, who can complain about a few model engines being made else where.

Yes, the rolling stock is to be made in Italy, the electronics by Hitachi, the engines in Germany. I think we get to make the wheels and brush up!
 
This is one reason why Britain is sinking slowly, we have given away ALL our manufacturing base, and import everything except the bad weather. (and even that is debatable!)
I read somewhere that there are 3 million non uk workers here, and 2 million uk born and bred unemployed.
Something doesn't add up!
On another forum, someone was banging on about British made gear. I sent a reply back - What is made in Britain now?
There are some British ASSEMBLED items, but apart from PAW engines, and maybe Lazer, both of which are small-scale enterprises, can anyone name a genuine, entirely BRITISH  made device of any significance?
(Even the B of the Bang has fallen apart!)
On a similar vein, somewhere down south is planning on putting up a 100 foot statue of a white horse, yet they refused permission for a wind generator!

Sure it wasn't a white elephant, Eric?
 
More than 12 years on, I still feel that leaving the UK was one of my better decisions.

A certain well known aero engine manufacturer might consider some of its (very expensive) products are still successfully manufactured in the UK!
