  • Gimme the facts Hyosung

    My brother is looking at 250's and is talking about Hyosung of which I know nothing about. Can anyone give me an idea of the good or not so good attributes of these bikes?
    I hear that the brakes arent much chop.

    Why god why????

    Find the search button and all your questions will be answered, the people that own them obviously liked them, hence the reason behind buying it...

    The rest of PSB will tell you that they are the worst bike ever made, you might consider
    sending Desmogod a PM and ask him what he thinks of them.
    I hear he is a BIG fan.

      Earlier models <apparently> had heaps of problems. Later models <apparently> are much better. PSB went through a hatefest recently where all and sundry dumped all over the hyos regardless of whether we'd maintained, ridden or even seen one. It was great fun.

      I'd recommend your brother start by working out his budget, then test riding (or at least sitting on) every 125 and 250 he can look at around that price - allowing $1000 or so for helmet, jacket, pants, gloves and boots on top of the bike itself.

      He'll soon find one that - for him - stands out as the perfect bike for him.

                  All 250's are slow.

                      the stock brakes on the older models are crap... just stick some new metalic based pads in and your set... they do alright stoppies etc (for a 250).
                      Good first bike... would never get the 650 version tho

                        Too expensive and too crap. Heavily lacking in street cred.
                        Feels good man.

                          if they are such a bad bike, i cant understand why there's so many of them on the road ...

                          like tintops, the first series will always have teething problems, which generally gets fixed in later models ...

                          they look good, suit a larger rider, and quite well priced ...
