Unfounded claims?
Provide us with a brief history of the Korean company.
Now compare that history with Suzuki and the SV650 which is in the exact same ballpark as the bike you are considering. Rock solid reliable and parts are abundant. If you are seeking dealers then service and parts will probably be an issue.
All that I am saying is take the safe bet on the SV.

I never once stated that you should by a bigger bike...just one with proven relaibility which the SV has. :BangHead:

An excerpt from a cycle world article:
http://www.cycleworld.com/article.as...&page_number=4



I've had the opportunity to ride some of these bikes, and they show a lot of potential-and more than a few flaws. The 650 motor is powerful and durable, but also buzzy and crude. Handling is good, but the heavy steel frame, cheap suspension and underpowered brakes hold them back. The build quality of these models is...different. Not bad, but very industrial, with a lot of cheesy touches that make me think they didn't really know the U.S. market very well when they designed these bikes. After a riding impression, the Comet felt like a crude SV650 that was 50 pounds heavier and only $1000 less than the Suzuki; not my favorite bike. However, a few days on an Avitar impressed me; compared to Japanese middleweight cruisers it's surprisingly fast, agile and fun.

i think these bikes look pretty nice. to be perfectly honest, if i had known about them when i was looking for my first bike, i would have bought one, and half the reason would have been the price. the reviews i read about them have been pretty good too.

they have been in business since 1970. They have made one or two bikes.

I don't care if it's overweight, a little funny looking, and cheaply put together. Just something about it makes me want to ride it....Reminds me of my ex.
