  1. Has anyone seen this yet? Looks alot like an SV650. Hyosung is one of the largest and most respected companies in South Korea, and was founded in 1952. Hyosung Motors & Machinery Inc was established in 1978 as a motorcycle manufacturer. In 1979 a technical tie up was established with Suzuki Motor Corp of Japan for producing Suzuki models for some Asian markets. Hyosung established its own R&D centre in 1986 to develop models under the Hyosung brand for export to global markets under the banner "Made by Hyosung, Ridden by The World". 12% of staff are engaged in R&D to keep pace with aggressive development of new models suitable for export markets. Hyosung produce some models that carry a Japanese brand name that are exported worldwide, and components produced by Hyosung can be found on several other brands of motorcycles.

    You would think with that much R&D going into it they would have created something with more eye appeal. :wink: Are they going to be hitting US markets anytime soon?

  4. It's a twin...

    Looks more like a cross between a gsxr, a sv650, and a bandit... one ugly kid.
