make sure you keep us up to date on your hyosung, the only complaints I’ve ever heard about them is “questionable reliability” but nearly everyone who repeats that (like I am now) got it second or third hand. I think not much has been said because its not one of the well known brands with a long honorable history like the japanese bikes. there’s still that mentality out there that chinese, korean, or taiwanese bikes are cheap piles of garbage made by 6yr old sweatshop children banging on rocks. same as the issues back in the 70’s with everything from japan being cheap knockoffs of better american products. now japanese is synonymous with quality, reliability, and affordability. hopefully the hyosungs will be one of the flagships that’ll bring people around to korean built bikes as well.
I know Daewoo is korean and was really popular for a bit, then dissapeared, then came back…some places…is Scion korean?
good stuff’s finally coming out of places other than Japan, but it’ll take a while for word to come around is all
