    You know, after looking and reading about Hyosung I would definitely consider giving them a shot. Since a large number of motorcyclists go through a bike every 2-3 years (theft, accident, boredom) how long does the bike really have to last? And considering their history in manufacturing and the partnership with the Suzuki SV I would think they make a decent enough product.

    The SM bike looks pretty sharp, as does their GV 650 cruiser which has a claimed 70hp in a light weight (relative to other cruisers) package. I like seeing more options come around and Hyosung just might be a player in a few years. I am not in the market for a bike right now, but I think once you get past the fear of the unknown it will turn out to be a reasonable choice for new riders or people on a tight budget.

    The frame looks "small" compared to a lot of the others out there. How well it would take a fall (crash) would be of concern if I was buying one. That said a few mods would help out.

    As the last poster said it could get the masses on a Motard and that is a good thing. Time will tell......

    Yeah, but if it's a steel frame then it's in line with my DR350 and could well be that it pretty much matches the tubes on my 510 Husky which don't look much, if any, bigger than this one.

    Besides, if it was a smaller fitting bike that would be a good thing too since it would mean that more folks that are inseam challenged could actually ride them. With the current crop of regular sized motards and enduros it's a market tailored to the 5'9" or taller riders. Short folks need not apply unless they bring a boarding ladder or 8 inch heels.

    I've never understood why some dual sports don't turn away from this silly idea that all bikes have to have 18 inches of suspension and go for a clearance and travel that is adequite and provides a 28 to 30 inch saddle height. It would still be lots of clearance for casual trail riding but let folks run with a bigger engine for easier hill duties.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
