They have several over there. A couple pre owned and new. The office is fairly small but they do have a lot of room in back.

"solid bikes"

til something breaks and you have to work on it. i wouldnt touch them anyone here know any shops who do other than dealers? does Motorcycles Unlimited? they're made with inferior parts. Although yes, they are made at the same factory as the suzukis they are not made with the same parts.

the dealers are usually flavor of the week and your much more likely to find that they've either closed down, switched to selling another korean/chinese model or that parts are unavailable because the bike is no longer in production altogether.

I worked there for years and I have no respect for Chinese products, and very little respect for their enigeers or workers.
Can't tell if..

Wrong!!
Not same factory as Suzuki, and not with inferior parts anymore. At least for the exports to USA.

True!!
Parts might be hard to find if needed immediately.


Don't wanna elaborate, but know it for fact.

Well since you asked yes they are. Actually there are 5 Ford plants in China, 2 in India, 2 in Japan, 2 in Taiwan, 2 in Thailand, 1 in the Philippines and 1 in Vietnam. Plenty more also in Europe, Australia, Africa and South America.

I guess we all know what i was trying to say, but for the sake of argument...... I see Citroens and Renaults everywhere in Chile and Argentina, does it mean they are made in South America?

March 2013 cycle world review is not very friendly towards the Hyosung 250 sports bike this year...makes for a good read though.

Anyone from awesome cycles want to chime in?
I know they had recently gotten a couple of the Hyosung 250 cruisers when I took my course ~ 2yrs ago. And we all know those bikes get beat (well, idled for long periods in the heat, slipped clutches for hours at a time, and dropped).

When I sat on one, I liked the weight... and they looked good if you squinted. If you looked it over, it ended up looking cheap. It had box tubing frames, simple designs, simple and exposed hardware (not button head allen screws). Stuff like that.
