    Worried about the future of Hyosung?

    Well, they just started supplying their new GV650 cruisers to the Korean police force!





    It must have been one heck of a deal they cut!

    Special thanks to member Gee-Bee of the ACD Forums for hunting down the pics!

    Nice looking police bikes.

    Not worried at all. They have a really bright future in my opinion.
    One of the better looking police bikes too. Just a little small for U.S. law enforcement, except for in the cities maybe.

    Physically small or in the CC department? If the latter I got data from a fellow in spain that ran his GV650 the quarter mile in 12.7 seconds, which is about what a Honda VTX 1800 does!

    I really like those bikes. I just wish there was a dealer near me so I could check them out in person.

    As it turns out, a co-worker is going on vacation in St. Augustine and there is Solano Cycle. I've given him strick orders to stop by and check it out for me...including photo's! LOL...

    I've been lurking on your forum from time to time and have been reading and learning a great deal about them as well as the Kymco Venox. Nice work over there!

    Hyosung is a huge company...I wouldn't worry about them going anywhere anytime soon...they started making bikes in the early 70's so they probably have it down by now...

    They are nice looking bikes.
    Politics, your bag? Come here...all view points welcomed.

    Stop complaining! 98% of the people don't care about your problems and the other 2% are happy you have 'em.

    Good chances of this bike hanging in & becomming one of the bikes from Korea to possibly China. The more yrs they stay & the more up to date models, makes the bike more of an established brand all will trust.
    Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you!!!!!!

    Thanks for the compliment Chuck!

    Actually keep an eye out in your area, as I hear Hyosung US is adding dealers all over the country pretty much on a daily basis!
