I would be more than happy to pay the extra for a quality American built engine. Sure it would be great if they could be sold at the same price as the China built ones but I have no issues whatsoever with paying more for a more dependable quality product.
A better built/more reliable engine would also address concerns that a good many potential riders might have with regard to their desire to be riders not wrenchers. Beyond that those of use who are riders might be more inclined to ride more and further in the absence of the potential frequent breakdowns we all encounter.
