We now know, “copy each other’s job” style in the fields of cars and two wheels Unfortunately, it is widespread. What can we do, not everyone has such a great imagination when it comes to designing a new and innovative project. Among the worst “scenarios”, no offense, there are certainly some Chinese houses.
