I just noticed jdh2550_1's comment in this post about CMC "teaming with a Tier 1 auto supplier for manufacturing". A little digging on the CMC website and I found this link about their partnering with Dakkota Integrated System (Googling "Current Motor Company Dakkota" results in several press release articles). I was curious if anyone knew about Dakkota, and what their impressions are about this move? I'm sure John H. has information that he may or may not be able to share, but I'm also curious about what those of us who don't work for CMC know about Dakkota.
Googling Dakkota on my lunch hour didn't provide much information, but my first thought is that this is a good thing; if they're using an automotive OEM for their manufacturing, it should be an improvement over what we've become accustomed to from the Chinese made bikes (I'm thinking specifically of my EVT Z-20A).
