Hyosung has an ad in one of the print mags this month for this bike. It says:

"The performance of a bike twice it's size at a price even YOU can afford!" Or something like that.

One of the factory reps was at Daytona last year with a local dealer; they are comitted to the market. It's just a matter of time before they work their Filthy Eastern Ways into our unsuspecting Western Motorcycle Market.

Apparently, the rebranded Hyosung will come in the bac k door of certain HD dealers with an auto-clutch.

Reins - he's got spurs on the heels of his tennis-shoes as well as a pair of "highwaters" on for ridin' gear.........

This prototype will form part of a range of American-assembled bikes made using 60-70 percent Korean components sourced from S&T Motors (formerly Hyosung) that ATK plans to sell though Harley dealers crying out for entry-level products. American assembly begins in 2012 and a range of products is planned, including standards and sportsbikes. Here’s hoping this semi-auto powertrain will find its way into one of those standards too.
If only Harley would make a Sportbike, I would buy one.....

Rossmeyer HD is selling all kinds of crap. Sucka Punch Sally, scooters, some cheapo v-twins from Korea, Bar-B-Q sauce, condoms, you name it.

Bet they miss the days when people stood in line to buy bikes that weren't even built yet. Dumb ****s, somebody ought to write a book called:

"Harley: Capitalism's Greatest FAIL."

I'm guessing her creds lanyard. The dude is wearing shorts, and he has some sort of Event Bracelet on.

I'm guessing they are blistering along at 12 mph.
