Well besides the title issues which I agree with above,

ANY bike that has had recent gas in in it that has set for a long period of time is going to take a LOT of work to get running again. I ride a 1987, yes 22 year old bike, and it was an interesting opportunity to learn every piece, system, screw, fuse, and wire on the bike getting it just to turn over again. And it only set without someone riding it for 8 months.

So, unless your curious and dedicated, it might be WAY to much work for $1500.

Don't buy the Hyosung... period.

Save a little longer and get a better bike. Ninja 250 is a great idea. Buy it, ride it for a year and sell it for nearly what you paid.
Then buy something bigger.

Don't forget to take MSF and always always ALWAYS wear gear. (Helmet, gloves, jacket and boots)

Always.
Don't dress for the ride... dress for the crash.

I had the seller og my ZX6R sign the title incorrectly, and it was pain in the a$$ to go back and forth and have him write letters explaining that to the clerks at the tax office. I would not deal with something like that on a $1500 Hyosung. Inspection is easy however, and only $12.50 or $13 - I don't remember what I paid.

If you have another $1K, I have a clean titled SV sitting in a garage that was never dropped, with current inspection and registration. I just don't ride it that much anymore.

Yeah, I passed on that one. It was too much hassle.

I picked up a Honda Rebel instead. I'm not much of a sportbike person, getting too old to ride those. I like cruisers. I took my MSF class with Awesome Cycles on 12/19 and 12/20. They were great!! That was the first time I've ever ridden a motorcycle. I fell off on the second day but still managed to pass the riding exam (didn't fall off during the exam).

I'm slowly getting used to riding a motorcycle. I think it'll take me a few months to get some of the basics down and I'm hoping to ride nearly everyday.

Thanks for everyone's feedbacks. It really helped me with my analysis and final decision.

Imma have to call BS.
I'm older than you and I can still ride a sportbike. If you prefer a cruiser that's cool, but don't say you're too old.
