it is true that Oyama folders aren't quite as popular.

I am happy that I managed to make a deal with three manufacturers ( Dahon, STRiDA, Oyama ) to test all their models.
Back to your question.
From what I've seen Oyama bicycles are USUALLY a cheaper alternative but not necessarily of lower quality.
In my opinion they have much much much more beautiful designs that most of the Dahons, especially the Manhattan.
The Manhattan and the Lexington which I have tested are very nice, relaxing rides.
