I wonder the same thing. Was the warranty ticking away while the scooter was down? Slight side note: My wife purchased a CFMoto/Qlink 250cc motor scooter, the Helix clone. Had a 2 year warranty. Here’s how the warranty really works! CFMoto makes junk. The scooter breaks-down, goes in the shop and waits for parts for up to 2 months while the warranty continues to tick away. We normally put 10,000 miles a year on our scooters but she only managed 5000 in 2 years. She ended up donating it to a thrift store. NEVER buy a CFMoto/Qlink product. It will live in the back of a shop because it’ll constantly fall apart.
