look at the specs for the rear wheel 160/60zr17. That is one skinny tires and have very small contact patch in corners. Also, this bike is a solo. Look at the rear section of the bike. Where is the passenger seat?
You know Hyosung has tried to squeeze in the American market but the consumer was too smart to buy this . So now, they try to appeal the market by saying it is the American made, America's sportbike company. This is insult to the Americans.:BangHead:

you obviously don't know about bikes so please sit down. I know people including myslf that would wear your out a sv while you ride that 10r of yours. the other thing i find funny about your post is that since it's a solo seater someone it's a bike "it's not even fat i mean look it doens't have a rear seat........."

I'm not sure that matters. My F3 has a 160/60/17 on the rear. Stock size. No cornering problems (other than the rider :icon_bigg )

i don't have any "little sport bike friends" but i do have a harley leaking oil onto a plate of kitty litter in my garage.
