Default What does this remind you of?

What other bike does this remind you of?

For those who can't see the pictures, here is the link: Hyosung Motors USA


BTW, the pic was there in the "preview" mode before I submitted the post.

They obviously copied the Vrod rather than the Lowrider like the Japanese did.

The shape of the bike reminds me of a Victory. The frame-under-the- "tank" reminds me of a V-Rod.

Yall are right the v-rod had that frame showing under tank, I pooled the vrods in with the buels mentallly. Diddnt the Yamaha Seca or the Bandit have that too though in the early 90's?

That's what I was thinking upon first glance... V-Rod clone.

Then, I saw the Yamaha Warrior. Didn't Yamaha have almost the exact same color scheme a couple of years back?

Now don't go dissin' Hyosung, 'specially when you see 'em with Harley Davidson emblems on the tank. Maybe that's a styling excersize for the new Hyosung-HD bike. The Hyosung-Davidson?
