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.
It's better to sit back quietly and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. If you don't know what you're talking about, you really should shut the up!

That's correct. I dont want to be discouraged by bad comments until I see one GV250 in person. This will be an entry bike for a new rider with no experience at all. I will like more a Ninja 250 but GF wants a cruiser. Not too many options in 250cc cruisers out there, the Honda Rebel is carburated versus FI in the Hyosung GV250.

But the Honda is a Honda...regardless of fuel delivery. What about those smallbore cafe type bikes that were posted up here a while back? Anyone know what I'm talking about?

If you are used to top-of-the-line BMWs, Ducatis, Aprilias, then the Hyosungs are gonna look like elephant dung to you. Then again, you prolly won't find a Rebel 250 or Suzuki GZ250 very appetizing either. IMO, Dos Equis has a valid point, in that those Japanese budget 250 cruisers are unedited from the original '80s design. Nothing wrong with carburetors, of course. That Hyosung OTOH is actually designed in the last decade. FI, alloy wheels, and a nice big oil cooler to boot.

If I were to be looking at something like that, the Hyosung is actually not a bad choice. Won't set MotoHouston world on fire, but hey... it's an entry level 250 cruiser. Like I always say, the point is not to fall in love with you first bike; your first bike's job is to make you fall in love with riding.

When I took my wife to the IMS and asked what she would want as a first bike, she actually liked the Suzuki S40. Again, it's low-tech old-school designed back when Crockett and Tubbs were cruising Miami streets on TV. But belt-drive means no-fuss no-mess. 650cc may sound like a lot for a beginner, for that thumper is very user-friendly and the bike is actually lighter-weight than the Hyosung GV250.

Just a thought.

If she wants a cruiser, why the desire for a 250? A 250cc cruiser =/= a Ninja 250.

Money is a big factor here. The cheapest we can go, the better.

Those Cleveland Cyclewerks look interesting. I will replace the handlebar for a "Clubman" bar and install ba-end mirrors to complete the "Café" looks.

Search mh for the thread. i dug up a lot of info on ccw bikes.
i had an older thread on the suzuki tu250x/volty/(whatever the japanese call it)
there are some really cool cafe kits out of japan.

also worth a look is the yamaha tw200. again, japan took an absolutely mild bike and went nuts with it. some really tasteful mods are out there.
