'V8 Motorcycle & Parts Dealer' - Investment


Angel Investors raising funds to finance the Dealership expansion,
were rewarded with excellent Return On Investment*.

I actually put my own money into this Investment since having performed my own 'due diligence' into this company
'V8 Motorcycle & Parts Dealer' and researched into their Business Plan it certainly looked like it was capable of creating a lot of money from the import of Motorcycles direct from one of the top Motorcycle Manufacturers in China - 'Zongshen'. Buying direct, in large volumes, brings the per unit cost way down.

Yes there are Risks associated with High Rewards, and this particular Investment is no exception, and as such may not be for everyone. Having talked to the CLS Group, that ''V8 Motorcycle & Parts Dealer' is part of, we learned that they were willing to consider a Group of 'Angel Investors' pooling their funds, to leverage off the higher 'Return' of the Group total investment.
The documents comprised:-

  1. Official Receipt

  2. Memorandum Of Agreement (MOA)

  3. 'Certificate' of Dealership

  4. Bank Guarantee

That's right, they gave us a Bank Guarantee, on those 13 x PDC's for the 1 Year Term
(or 25 x PDC's for the 2 Year Term).

Whilst you get signed up as a 'Dealer', the MOA, says that 'V8' will take care of the actual running of the Dealership Business, and everything connected with it. That is why it better to view it as being an an 'Angel Investor', rather than becoming a 'Motorcycle Dealer'. You get a Dealership Certificate, but that does not entitle you to buy such Motorcycles @ Dealer Prices. However, showing such 'Dealership Certificate' in the co-located V8 Appliances Showroom and you may well discover they give you 25% off the List Price, be it a Television, and Air-conditioner, or whatever they sell, that you want to buy, with such Dealers Discount.

How about 'Vespa' Scooters? Piaggio also make these Motorcycles:-

In June 2005, the first Piaggio engine were made in Zongshen Industrial Park, and the first ZIP motorcycle jointly made by Zongshen and Piaggio were put into market Up to 2006, some 60,000 units of ZIP scooters were sold to Europe.
From 1992 to 2006, some 60,000
ZIP scooters sold.

How about 'Harley-Davidson' also Whilst the image of "I ride a Zongshen" will never be the same as "I ride a Harley Davidson", the fact that Harley Davidson have signed this 'Co-operation Memorandum', with the Zongshen Industrial Group, says a lot about their company, to even be considered,the way I read this?

Italy Piaggio and US Harley•Davidson are the top leaders in the motorcycle industry all over the world. Their technology on scooter and chopper manufacturing are definitely superior. On June 9th,2004, Zongshen Industrial Group and US Harley•Davidson signed cooperation memorandum, this is another classic cooperation between Zongshen and occident top motorcycle manufacturer, a big step forward in leading technology and customer globalization field.

The Zongshen Manta 110 is Zongshen's offering in the step-thru or underbone commuter motorcycle market currently dominated by the Honda Wave 100. Immediately, you will notice that the Manta already has an advantage over the market leader – its 110cc motor has a bigger displacement than the Wave’s 100cc motor and produces more power. Another advantage the Manta has is that it is equipped with a front disc brake unlike the base Wave 100 which has a drum brake in front. But like the popular Wave, the Zongshen Manta 110 is equipped with an automatic clutch and a 4-speed rotary manual transmission, so riding the bike is as easy and as convenient. Power is transferred to the 17-inch wire spoke rear wheel via chain drive while a rear drum reins in the speed. A telescopic front fork and dual shocks at the rear do their parts to smoothen the road undulations. The Manta 110, which retails for P39,000 is selling very well indeed. The new design is bolder than the ’06 version and makes the ’07 Chase 125 look more expensive and more apt for the Philippine market. Leaving well enough alone, Toro Motors also left the price of the ’07 Chase 125 at P42,000, which represents a bargain, considering the bike’s features. And as if to follow our lead, the company came out with a Chase 125 variant (B-grade) by changing the 2-stroke-styled expansion chamber-equipped exhaust system with a more appropriate megaphone-styled muffler set-up and then priced it at P44,000. Both Zongshen Chase 125 variants are available in Red or Blue and will be available at authorized Zongshen dealers by the time you read this. The Loadstar 150 is the company’s model for the commercial market, or quite specifically the tricycle or taxi segment. This air-cooled 150cc single-cylinder standard motorcycle is quite popular in the provinces, especially in areas where high ground clearance, robust suspension and engines that produce a lot of torque are needed. The Loadstar’s popular market acceptance is partly due to its affordable price of P47,000. For that amount, buyers of the Zongshen Loadstar 150 get the aforementioned 150cc motor, a robust steel cradle frame, hefty front forks, four rear heavy-duty shock absorbers, a frame guard/extension to attach the side car; and a built-in front accessory light bar .

The High Rewards offered to those Angel Investors, have closed, as indeed the 1 Year Term.
However there is a NEW 2 Year Term Dealership Plan for just Php500K min. investment.

The Reward may not be as generous, as that initial 2 Year Term, requiring Php2M min. investment, but it is still very good - contact me for details.

What did Catherine L. Soronio did with the alleged Php350M that she conned us Angel Invester/Dealers out of?

Sure some 900 x Zongshen Motorcycles did get imported to Cebu, Philippines, from China, to make the 'scam' appear 'real', as well as the growing chain of Showrooms around Cebu. Perhaps it was NOT a 'Scam' to start with, but become one, when she managed to 'obtain' such a large amount of funds in what less than 6 months.

Catherine L. Soronio never even spent Php10M on paying 'Zongshen' for those imported Motorcycles (which they shipped with essential parts missing, because the full payment had not been received from Soronio). This caused the collapse of the Business Plan (if indeed there was truly one?). This no profiuts were being generated from having such 'V8 Motorcycles (OEM Zongsen), being sold from that chain of showrooms and with Financing from her Banks.

I am looking forward (if ever?) to that Arrest Warrant being issued, following the filing of Syndicated Estafa Case against Catherine L. Soronio by Cebu City Court Prosecutor, Atty, Labata.
