First, I think. It will take a little getting used to the look, but it is kind of attractive for the born to be mild set.

As a proud owner of a few Korean automobiles, I'm excited and pleased that we're finding more and more of their prodcuts coming over here. I know a lot of people I would recommend this bike too, and as long as the looks of it don't bother them to much, the power, handling, and price would sell them for sure.

When I first saw this thing in orange, I thought the bike was a joke. However, it looks pretty good in silver and the blue ain't bad either. The other tests I've read were very positive too. It's good to see a fresh approach to a performance cruiser. I tip my hat to Hyosung. Now if I could just get that goofy Japanese cartoon charachter outta my head when I hear the bike's name...

Default Competition is always good.

Competition is always good.



Think Harley would have come out with the V-Rod in the first place without competition.



Hell no they wouldnÂ’t!!

Some guy opened a Hyosung shop a couple of miles from my house. I stopped and looked at the few models he has last Saturday. The Avitar looks kind of funky in person, but then so do most cruisers.



However the 250 V-twins look sharp.

Actually, not a bad looking bike. I think they could black out the frame and calm down with the chrome (maybe more of a nickel or brushed aluminum look) and they would have a winner in the looks department.

I think the Japanese 4 should get a little worried at this point. This bike will take sales from them for sure. I doubt Harley will feel much pain from Hyosung. People that want a Harley will buy one, and for those that don't, Hyosung will be a new option.

Anything that will make it look more like a V-Rod than it already does will help.

At least someone finally figured out that middleclass cruisers can actually make more than 35HP.

I wasn't sure "proud" and "Korean automobile" could be used properly in the same sentence. LOL
