Get used to it, China is where all the manufacturing is now, we dont have anything left. Most of the Die Casters, Steel mills and Machine shops in the US are long gone! Pretty soon China will get its act together and steam roll the rest or the world, and we'll all be riding bejing specials.

Nope, not you. There was an article posted by one of the guys here, I believe his handle is KLRer, asking about the towing capabilities of a KLR for his boat.



In one of his earlier posts I thought I saw him state that he was about 81.



Beck to you; I love impulse buys! Those have got to be the most fun you can have when you step into a shop with no plans of buying something new and you walk out with a new toy.

The bike is on its right side with the throttle pinned wide open. KLRer's hand is just out of reach of the kill switch due to his leg being fouled in the safety chain.



The neighbors think he just has his TV up really loud and a Castrol GTX commercial is on.

Congrats on your first new bike, a bike is a bike... regardless or make or model.

Default More Hyosung

In fact, Hyosung's R&D department is in Japan and staffed by engineers poached from Suzuki and the rest of the Big Four.



The guy that was responsible for the SV650 motor is the same guy that led the development of the Hyosung 650 motor. They are similar in concept and execution, but not identical engines by any stretch, as is the case with the rest of the GT650.



Hyosung worked for Suzuki for many years, and I think, actually built SV650 motors amongst many other things.

There are a couple of bb's i'm a member of and read for Hyosung riders, both sport models and cruiser models. None of the owners of these bikes has had any complaints like the chinese imports. I looked at the GT-650 (they didn't have a demo avail to ride) and i was rather impressed with what i saw. When compared to the only chinese model i've seen (Vento) it was miles ahead in apparent quality and finish. My only hesitation with purchasing one is the limited dealerhip network at the time. Since then that network has grown substantially, so who knows maybe this summer i'll look again.



For those interested in reading more.
