STEP AWAY FROM THE KEYBOARD. KEEP YOU HANDS AND/OR OTHER APPENDAGES WHERE I CAN SEE THEM.

Yeah, but the Chinese are getting away with crap that we shouldn't pretend is OK. You can get an organ transplant pretty quick and cheap, I hear.

I have an '03 GT 250 naked - done about 40,000km on it. It is the same as the sportsbike version except for fairing, bars, and has a single disk at the front instead of the double.



It is much larger than the 250 Ninja. The Hyo has not as much top end, but better low/mid range. I've been very happy with mine.



For more information, there are plenty of owners at www.korider.com

Absolutely - since the Hyosungs started selling in Australia (in 2002 or 2003), the SV650 has dropped almost $2000 in price, and the 250 Ninja (GPX250 over here) has dropped by a similar amount. I can't imagine that would have happened without a direct competitor showing up

They are better than you would expect. Just don't expect too much.
