Please help tell me if this frame is a genuine Kona coilair?

Hi guys,I'm new here and this my first time to ask a question on here so here it goes:
I've been eyeing this neat looking frame on the Chinese "ebay".It's seems like a true Kona product but in doubt about the price.I really love the geometry and it has a size that's ideal to me.But i'm not really familiar with the technicalities of the real stuff (if this is really a rip-off)
So I'm leaving a photo of the frame for you to see if this is genuine or not.Thanks in advance.:

What's the price? There are some Kona CoilAirs on there which are priced more realistically (although they could still be fakes!) but you know the old adage about things being too good to be true, right?

The other question is whether you really want to hurl yourself downhill on a frame whose origin you may have lingering doubts about...

Thank you,Slayer.Always good to have a second opinion.BTW as I was searching the web about "the" Kona,I stumbled upon mtbr and on there was the same question I have and the exact same frame that I posted,only their's was blue/white.The reviews were all one sided saying that was a knock off.

Guess I'll hang on to my hardtail for a while.Looking forward to riding in HK .Just don't know if I can get a permit since I'm not an HK resident,.Thanks again and more power.

Anyone can get a permit, tourists/visitors go out all the time after having gotten one (some people without having gotten one).

If you're interested in the local secondhand market check out 28bike.com, or (so I am told) 852Riders on Facebook.

Good luck and see you on the trails!

Crappy shock, lack of hydroformed tubes, it's a Horst-link rather than faux-bar... it's a knock-off. :P
