I know afew people that have Korean cars. They all have excelent things to say about them, including the price, and warenty. If Hyosong gets a quality bike out, for less than the competition good. As someone else posted, toss in a 3 year or better warenty and it calls in the consumer.



And its not a bad looking bike (in pictures)

They look good to me. And the competition will help with pricing everywhere. I especially welcome the 250 in the lineup.

The "Baby VRod" looks cute, as well as the SV-clones.



However, when Bike reviewed the SV-clones a few months back, they were NOT happy with the suspension.

If anyone took the time to notice, the engineering team for the Comet and various other machinery come directly from Suzuki. These people are not assamed to admit it and as far as I'm concerned that's just fine. Korean's are building a cheaper (cost) machine. That's going to sell bikes, period.

It is interesting! I can imagine the Koreans competing head-to-head with the Japanese. I wonder if we would see a Japanese take-over of Hyosung?

i am trying to figger out how this benefits Suzuki? i will need a free-market capitalist genius to `splain me... More profitable to sell engines to Korea than motorcycles to litigious Americans?

That full fairing 650 looks nice... a lightweight sport bike would look good in my garage next to the CityX.



this should be a BIG heads-up for Suzuki to put some effort into the SV, maybe fix those cheap-arse forks... that bike isn't half what it could be.
