Germany's oldest motorcycle manufacturer has entered into an agreement with a major Chinese factory that will enable British dealers to offer their customers a range of budget scooters that combine German quality with Internet direct prices.
Sachs motorcycles, who celebrate their 120th anniversary this year, signed a deal with New Superior Ltd., a subsidiary of a Hong Kong based group of well-funded investors that will result in massive investment in its European R&D and distribution hub, in return for German engineering support and in-house quality control in the Chinese production plant.
First off the production line is the Sachs 49er, a 50cc scooter powered by a reliable automatic 4-stroke motor capable of travelling over 100 miles on a gallon of unleaded petrol.  This well-specified scooter features 160mm front disc brake, 10" alloy wheels with sports profile tyres and top case as standard.  Sachs are confident that the 49er will be successful because it offers dealers an opportunity to sell a European brand with full spares and warranty at a price to compete with unbranded Chinese imports, often sold over the Internet.  This is a winning combination of German quality and Chinese mass-production prices, backed by a British distributor with over 30 years experience in the motorcycle industry.  
The Sachs 49er will be available in yellow, silver, blue or black and will sell for just £999- on the road, including a 2-year warranty. Sachs motorcycles offer a very competitive insurance scheme through their long term insurance partner MCE, telephone: 0870 01-01-125.
