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.

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