Educate yourself about China's banking system. Seeing as how you're so fond of bleating about ticking time-bombs.

BMW GS has the "Insect God" thing down solid.



This is more "insectoid-lite".

"If I were in the market for something on the level of a 750Shadow/800Marauder... you bet."



Yeah, right. Kind of a big if. When you get one, post pics somewhere. Anyway, I was asking Gabe since he said he would consider it. The reason being that if you are going to use a reviewer's opinion on something as part of a buying decision, it is good to know where they are coming from. After reading Gabe's other stuff over the last couple of years, I would have said there is about as much of a chance of him spending his own money on one of these goofy Avitar things as a Bergman 400. But he said he would, so I guess I was wrong. Unless he is not serious. Which is what I was trying to find out.

The looks are questionable, the build quality is

maturing, the dealer base is sparse....sounds like Hydundai in the '90s....look at them now!

Korean engineering is world class, so I expect these bikes to improve by leaps and bounds...clean up all the loose ends and this bike is a class winner!

You're right. This country's going to hell in a handbasket. You should leave while you can.

Unless you're worried like a 40 year old soccer mom about maintenence/ dealer base, or if you don't HAVE a dealer within distance (most of us), HOW THE HELL could you possibly want a similarly priced honda with 1/2 or 2/3rds the horsepower as this?



Anyone who knows about hyosung knows that it's an established company, and already makes a pretty good product. They have my preferred equation down: cruiser styling, sportbike engine. I'll be anxiously awaiting more long-term reviews, and especially 1/4 mile times etc.



I'd just take a hacksaw and some black paint to the thing - bingo!
