I stay away from any non-Japanese motorcycle made in Asia but this Korean bike has an interesting history. Also the fact that Korea is producing decent, affordable cars means that they are following in the Japanese footsteps. No reason to buy a Korean bike, but maybe we will see more of them in the not too distant future. Read this article on the V-Rod look-alike with a Suzuki SV650 look-alike engine: http://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/2013-hyosung-gv650-aquila-pro-review-91470.html It's got 72hp, is only a second slower than the V-Rod in a quarter-mile and sells for $6,899 in the US. Oops I messed up - this thread should be under General Discussion!
