The

electrics will fill with water and short, despite the absence of rain.

The tyres will be so wooden they'll be used to repair the fence it inevitable flies through.

The exhaust will rot through also, despite being brand new and in the absence of rain or salt.

The rider will not be wearing Chinese made leathers, boots and helmets.

A 12 year old child may fall out of the bike having got stuck in there whilst building it.

That's

very true. Besides any country can build a motorbike - it'll be hand built with reliable racing parts and all put together by experts. It'll not be a production line job. It's not the nationality, it's the funding and the experience of the team that make the difference.
