with all these chinese brands getting more populer here is one more thing to watch out for... availability of parts!

i have people come in all the time hoping we have (or can get) parts for these off brands. no one in town has them, you will be hoping to special order them through the internet from across the planet.

sometimes whoever sold it to them tells them "oh, you can get these parts anywhere" etc.. or "its the same as honda parts". but they dont tell them which honda parts, and there is no way to find out.

i dont think someone who is looking at a 250 is going to be missing the extra 7hp. if they were id say youd be better off with the new gs500f. its full fairing now. and i will bet money at least 9 out of ten chicks, cant tell the difference between the gsf500 and the gsxr600.

wow that looks 100 times better than the GSF500 they had at the dealer... I guess it was an older one.
I went to a hyosung dealer their stuff is so cheap looking... exposed screw heads on the back of the tail section, flash from the molding on the body parts, all the plastic isn't impact resistant ABS its just cheap brittle hard stuff....
you'd probably be better off with a used honda/kawa/suzu/yama

as I said to my friend:
ducati wants their headlights back, honda wants their tail section back, kawasaki wants their windscreen back
and the 250 ninja wants its cheap fairings back
and my moped wnats all its crappy exposed screws back

^ rofl.

yeh, the full fairing were added in '04 i think? it actually looks even better in person than it does in the pic. i walked by one in the service garage, and had to do a double take. they look so much like gsx'Ride Smart.

its basicly the twin cyclinder little brother of the 600. i think it claims something like 57 mpg, and it has a 5.3 gallon tank! ive been looking at the gs500's for a while now. i might get one for a daily ride (might be an older one).

motorcycling isn't for everybody. and i tell my students if your in alot of wrecks your fault or not, maybe it's not for you. bikes are very unforgiving of accidents. something to think about.

Don't go mudslinging young grasshopper. The Hyosung posted by RacerX has nothing to do with China, and availability of parts? do you know who probably built most of the parts for that GS500 you posted? my guess would be Hyosung, since they've been manufacturing Suzuki parts for over 30 years. They built the SV650 motor for Suzuki, not the other way around. That hyosung 250 will outhandle that GS500 all day long IMO. BTW, the Hyosung Comet250R is cheap and easy to maintain, and I can get you every nut/bolt/fastener for that bike all day long. Just b/c you don't know about hyosung, doesn't mean you should go stereotyping them with "Chinese" junk. Hyosung is new to Texas, but not to morotcycling by any means. Class dismissed.
