We have five of them in stock (four R and one S) and if anyone from MO would like to review them, you're welcome to come stay for however long it takes in Kansas City. We will supply you with both the R & S models for your edification.



We have a Factory Pro EC997 Eddy Current Dyno and an Inertia Dyno Jet (if you must use it) for your use as well. I have ridden the bike and the power is impressive. However, manufacturers crank HP and True HP (at the rear wheel) are always different (then there is DJ HP, which I won't get into right now) The brakes are okay and are getting better with the few miles we have on our demo.



We will upgrade one of these bikes soon with an exhaust, airbox mod (if required) and pipe (looks like a yosh will work) new brake pads, and of course the best Dyno Tuning on the face of the earth, then post all this stuff on our web site within the next 30 days at mapsp.com. You can call (816) 554-1766 and ask for Dan Prindle or Curtis Fisher if you want to know more about the bikes. We are upgrading our web site and should have photos and comments very soon.



Thanks,



Curtis Fisher

Try looking at the accessories for a SV650S on the Suzuki website. If you have the 650S you can buy the lower fairing set for about $450 to make it a full fairing bike. They look pretty good too.

Have you got one of those Hyosung 125 v-twins? Or the 250?



Would like to see a test on those too. I'll call Dan later today.

This is why I like MO. An offer is made for a ride review, you folks accept it the same day, and we'll be reading about it weeks before any of the print rags think about doing this story. Way to go! Van

Yes... that 250 twin might be interesting as a 250 Production class race bike going up against the little Ninjas... a very fun and inexpensive way to go to the track.



I could see that turning into a cult track bike like the Hawk or the SV650.

Default Sue for what? Making a competitive bike?

The very reason why Hyosung split with Suzuki (they used to build engines, including the SV650 motor, for Suzi) is that Suzuki put severe limitations on what the Koreans could make and where they could sell it (which, by the way, is understandable.) The Comet 650 models, including the engine, are aimed directly at the SV-650 but are not copies. The engine is similar--and fathered by the former-Suzuki egghead that penned the SV lump--but it is not the same. Some have even suggested that it might be superior to the SV. The chassis is very different in terms of construction and materials (steel for the Hyosung.) The Hyosung uses carbs as opposed to EFI. And they don't use identical third-party components like brakes and suspension.



So while they may appear similar and have the same mission, in detail, the two bikes are very different.
