Thumbs up If A Cruiser And a Street Bike Had A Baby

It would probably look something like this: Hyosung GV 650:

561353 10150880930654660 540699659 9695707 1548848831 n

550559 10150881885784660 540699659 9698006 959026350 n

The only modification on this bike is the white paint job with the carbon fiber stripe. Thanks Korea, you nailed it on this one. Dependable, very light weight and boy is it fast. LED break lights, digital display, fat pipe... I've had my eye on the bike model for a while and finally got it shipped in last month. Lives up to full expectations. Anybody else gone Hyosung? The market is expanding in the US for it.

A couple. Texlurch and caligonetex have owned one off the top of my head. I've heard good (better) things.

That bike looks really good.

Thanks man, i love it. I'm curious to see what their experiences have been with them. From what i understand their street bike is becoming their staple. I'm new to bikes so i'm still overly safe about riding. I know the second i get comfortable with it, it's going to be a problem so i'll probably end up selling it soon.

It came out just a bit after the HD V-Rod did (Hyosung's take on the V-Rod of course). Good to see you found the perfect bike for yourself

We've got two Hyosungs. Both have busted throttle cables that have been on back order for 6 months with no end in sight.

Fuel injection is a little twitchy too. Never had a fuel injected bike that I had to give a little throttle to start.

That's something else i'm nervous about, parts being hard to find for the bike... or even finding a decent mechanic willing to work on it. I get the feeling there's going to be a whole lot of learning and DIY with this thing.

Lucky the 2006 uses a carb, i heard fuel injection issues with it on the hyosung forums.

That's nuts, I think i saw one of your bikes before i even got mine, fender chopped and brass knuckles on the tank. Maybe you were selling it?

More than "a bit"....the VRSC has been around for 10 years. I don't think Hyosung has been making that model that long

That's the setup that won BOTM Sept. '09. Still have it, though it's down for a full make-over right now. If I can figure out a rear end setup I'm happy with it'll probably end up pretty heavily cafe-inspired. The GT I've got and the GV that was a buddy's chopper project are going to be spliced together in an ungodly way to build a pro-street inspired chopper (someday), but first I've got to get my brother's rebuilt.

These are really surprisingly easy to work on, and don't worry about lack of advertised available bolt-on parts if you want to customize, just about anything can be fit with patience and a little know-how.

well , don't bother answering the question in the PM. You obviously do your own work. That's an awesome setup. I'm new to bikes so I can already tell i'll be bugging the out of you when i can't figure something out.

I build guns, and who doesn't love guns, here's my latest AK:

IMAG01741


The last forum i was on had a guy saying he uses his AK47 for home defense and half of the forums agreed it was a good idea, so i had to skidaddle.

Also Senator, here:

bullet001 4

seriously



....

kidding ...
