Scooterdepot - Not really pissed
I purchased 2 scooters from scooter depot in 2013. They came in metal crates only partially assembled (as expected) just as they are shipped from China. The purchaser is not buying from a dealer where they assemble the bike and test everything, you take on this responsibility. I'm handy with tools so I was able to assemble both in 3-4 hours and all of the electronics worked fine. I had to tune the carburetors and adjust the idle, but again, this was expected. Don't buy from them if you expect to roll it off the delivery truck and go for a cruise, you need to (or need someone) to do this work. Also make sure to tighten all bolts, even the ones that should be torqued down. I don't trust the assembly work of Chinese children. As of today, I'm perfectly happy and both scooters are running fine. One has 2500 kilometers and the other has 1700.
As for the title and state registration: they provided a certificate of origin (from China) with VIN numbers. I was able to take these to the DMV and apply for a new title no issues. One problem is that the insurance companies can't decipher the VIN numbers or brands, so they insured them with a generic rate.
