ebay?

Those are not a very common bike in these parts. They tried to make a push into Canada a few years ago and it fizzled. I occasionally see one riding around, but I don't think they are imported anymore.

My impression is that Hyosung are not bad bikes per se, but they are simply not as polished or refined as the Japanese bikes, yet cost the same.

Factor on top of that that the Japanese 4 have well-established dealerships and parts distribution, whereas Hyosung are a new, much smaller network. To buy a Hyosung, at least in North America, is a gamble. You'll have to wait longer for parts, etc.

The one guy I know who owned a Hyosung had the full-fairing 250 sportbike, sort of their Ninja 250 equivalent. He was very happy with it as a first bike and put something like 15,000 KM on it in a year. After a year, however, he wanted to get a bigger bike and so sold it.

Hi Woody,

a mate of mine has a 2013 125cc Hyosung, which looks like a full sized bike. He rides much bigger bikes normally but he always has something about having a 'tiddler' as well. He got it for an absolute bargain and asked me if I fancied taking it for a spin and, I must admit, that I enjoyed the experience.

He calls it the 'Wellhung 125'!

Regards

Reggie

A few years ago, maybe around 2010, the 125cc was issued to the Kabul police as a job lot (in a rather fetching black and yellow IRRC) - they were shipped in, packed in ISO containers, and were then to be seen, occasionally, parked outside the local bike shops which sell the Chinese brands. i.e. there was no obvious backup servicing or maintenance plan, which is typical within Afghanistan.
I tried to buy one there and soon found out that no one but the police could get them.

true they're not as polished or refined as the Japanese bikes there are very few bikes that are in my opinion

i heard that hyosung were trying to open supplies in america for faster delivery on parts but that was back in 09 i'm guessing it hasn't changed but luckily in england i live maybe 15 miles to the closest suppliers plus there are multiple dealers down south but i can see where you're coming from

i have the 125 aquila i used to ride my dads Yamaha XV250 before i got my licence and after riding it i wanna try the 250 to see the comparison between the hyosung and the yamaha. i haven't seen the sportbike hyosung i always wondered how they handled
