The company grew and in 2002 started producing cheaper, small-engined motorcycles. In less than three years in this market, it became the third-highest selling brand in Brazil, with 10 models ranging from 90 cc to 250 cc engines.

In China, Brasil & Movimento had a development office where it worked in partnership with two major partners, Qingq and Zongshen.[2]

In mid-2011, due to financial problems among investors, and the Brazilian economic crisis, the factory went bankrupt.[3]
