Hyosung has been making parts for suzuki for almost 40 years and selling bikes for almost 30 years. Their roots run deeper than they initially appear.

more like a knockoff SV650(although they built the motor for Suzuki). One one of the links ripcurl posted it was mistaken for an aprilia

That might be the owner. When I first bought my PW50 we talked on the phone for about 20 mins. He gave me a bunch of tips on carb care.

I bought the 250 version on the web for $2400 delivered for a 2004 model. No complaints, except for no power. I rode it often. Sold it with 5000 kms and no problems whatsoever. The guy I sold it to was a friend and he has another 5000 kms on it with zero issues. Only oil changes and chain lube and tighten.

FIt and finish was really good. Think of Hyosung as like a Hyundai, like a cheaper Honda Accord. The 650 has gotten nothing but good reviews worldwide. Fischer, the guy in Detroit making the "American Sportbike" uses the Comet 650 motor. See the write up a few months ago in the big bike mag.

If the 650 is anything like the 250, which I'm sure it is, then it is a really sweet ride / replacement for an SV650. But, there is a Blue SV650 naked at Wild West Honda, 1400 miles, perfect condition, 2006, three year warranty, $5200 out the door. The $400 difference will quickly seem small if you decide to resell.

BTW, my Comet 250 was new in the crate. $2400 delivered. I sold it for $2400 after a year.

Thanks for keeping an open mind Doyle. Too many people are quick to bash a product they know nothing about.

Would repairs on a Hyosung be done just as easily as any other brand of motorcycle? I'm worried mainly about the availability of parts, etc.

I got a GT650R for the wife a couple months ago. So far she has 600 trouble free miles on it. It runs and handles just fine, fit and finish are on par with most bikes, actually a real nice looking bike.
If you and your wife want to sit on it and hear it run, drop me a PM..

I'm really drawn to that bike. I don't care what the name is on the tank. Heard nothing but good thing about it but have'nt ridden one. I am dying to though. I don't know why. Maybe it is related to my facination with midgets or chicks with six toes.

thanks.

I have one word for this scenario: DON"T

Buy a used Suzuki SV or something with a reputation for reliability. Sam emoney an no woories about parts etc.

what an ignorant thing to say. . .


do you have ANYTHING to back that statement up? We all know it's not quite on the same playing field as your ZX14, but it's a good starting point for a lot of motorcyclists. Do us all a favor and educate yourself before you misinform all of those who read your posts.

BTW, i tried to edit that^^^ but i guess i was too late. Either way, consider these after thoughts. . .

I'm not bashing you nor your opinion. I simply feel that unfounded claims are worth rebutting. If you can find any horror stories regarding the Hyosung, feel free to post them up. I'm all ears
