I just showed this item to my friend who owns a genuine one.And he told me the words "speed weponry" under "ZIPP" logos on the top section should be lined perfectly with the curvature of the bar.But it looks the "ZIPP" logos were bit more curvy than the bar on this list. He also told me the holes of hoses doesn't looks right. Or maybe there is another version? Can anyone identify if this is true? I'm not quite sure at the moment.
Thanks!

I just bought a brand new genuine ZIPP Vuka Sprint and your friend is right...the decals don't line up and definitely those holes are not correct. Looks like a replica/knockoff to me.

Check out the pictures on this link...it has pretty decent pictures overall of the holes.

The stem clamp area looks way wrong too. I cant fit a Garmin infront mount next to the stem without offsetting the stem slightly to the left or the mount will sit a bit on the wing. Looks like you could fit three garmin mounts next to each other on either side of the stem there. Also my Zipp text-logos seem smaller.

I'd say fake and a poor one at that.

Many thanks RichieE46 and DMF
I think I'm gonna cancel the deal.
I was looking to bid at max of $200 on this. And it ends up at a unreasonably low price whitch arouse suspicion.

Yep, that's a counterfeit. I bought one just like it on ebay, too. The cable routing holes are pretty obvious and real ones also have a serial number on the underside.

Good luck getting out of that deal. I was not so lucky. Anybody want a Vuka Sprint knockoff cheap?
