good description reddog, as the old saying goes, "you only get what you pay for", still ok as a starting point though and a hell of a lot better than some other cheap brands that have come on the market since they did

A mate of mine was riding behind one that was tracking badly looking like the frame wasn't straight. Pulled up together at the lights and the mate asked if he'd dropped it. Nope! Only two weeks old and straight out of the crate. However, one of the guys at work is picking one up at the end of January so will know more then.

A mate of mine bought one for his son, Good motor (suzuki sourced or copy?) everything else he described as cheap and nasty.
Got written off in less than a year. Car ran into the back of it. His son was ok

I believe the EFI 650 versions are much better.

Hyosung Owner

Post  Trucktoe on Thu 08 Dec 2016, 9:20 pm

Hi

I have owned 2 Hyosung, 1 x 250 Naked (to learn on and kept if for 4 years) and 1 X 650S (3 years). I cannot say that either of them gave me an once of trouble and I think that they are a bit maligned. This might be urban legend but I have been told that Hyosung used to make the motors for Suzuki and having looked at the Suzuki SV 650 I do not think that it is far off the mark; mechanically they were very robust.

Neither bike was very comfortable on long trips but not to the point of requiring a chiropractor to fix me up when I got back from a ride. The 650S had a 'token' fairing but it did offer some protection.

Hyosung owned the Learner Legal market segment with the de-tuned 650s for a long time but there are a lot of contenders now from the Japanese manufacturers (and I think HD and Duke as well??) so the offerings are pretty good in the LL segment if that is what you are looking for: and yes I believe that the fuel injection models are the better ones to get.

You get what you pay for but I bought mine second hand for about $3000 and bang for bucks I thought that the 650 offered me a good ride.

Craig

Hyosung used to build Suzuki scooters for the local Korean market. When they decided to build their owm road bikes, Suzuki let  Hyosung use their V-twin motor. After a while, Hyosung started building their own motors as a direct copy of the Suzuki motor
