Remember those silly-looking little "pot-metal" bikes with their funny manuals in the '60s from that Asian company... what was its name? Hondo?

Default They are Hyosungs

At least the couple of bikes I saw in their ads. Rebadged GT 650s and 250s. I haven't looked at what else they're selling, but they must be rebadged something or others.



I'm was actually a little surprised that Hyosung would do a rebrand deal. They were supposed to be getting serious.

Buying Chinese products, especially higher priced things like motorcycles and cars, is the best thing you can do to accelerate the downfall of the USA. So if you are the person who hires illegal immigrants to cut your lawn because it costs less, go ahead and buy one of these bikes. Just think how great it will be to pay rent to the Chinese using your Social Security check!
