The SV did what it was meant to do, which was just give you a fun ride around town. It wasnt designed for the track, or for 1/4 mile runs. So yeah i can see people not being happy with it when you take it out of its element. The suzuki engineers and designers said this when it first came out. The bike was more about fun factor, and comfort than outright performance. Thats why i cant really compare it to supersports other sportbikes, because they were designed with completely different perspective in mind

Hyosung is one of those companies who's products get nicer every year.

I remember looking at their scooters also marketed as United Motors, and well they where "good for the price" they weren't great.
Last January I saw the 2012 Hyosung MC's at the show in NYC and while they are not great, they are pretty good. The cost for a new bike is around 6K and comes with a 2 year warranty.
If I was looking for a inexpensive first bike or just a commuter bike the "bang for the buck" factor as well as fuel efficiency makes Hyosung hard to ignore. IMO
They are a bit heavy.

First one i rode was a 2009 (?) GT250 and while it worked. I cant say i had fun on it. Ive ridden ninja 250's before and after riding the GT i just wasnt that impressed.

Its been a while so i dont remember exactly why i didnt like the Hyosung. But i can pick up a 08+ ninja 250 for 2.5k-4k off craigslist.

i just bought a mint matt black 01 sv650s with 13,800 miles saturday, sold it sunday and made some serious cash off it. I put 200 miles on it and i thought it had a lively little motor, very comfortable, and handled well (forks and shock were heavily modified), and it was just fun to ride. it obviously doesnt compare to our 675's or other supersport, but to sell that quick i would have to say its definatly a bike lots of people like to own and ride. wonder if anything major has changed on 13 model from the previously re-labeled gladuis.

my avatar describes how i feel when im on my daytona

Except there is 0 resale value on the hyosung bikes. I'd rather buy a used ninja 250/650 and get most of my money back

True to some degree, I personally don't put a lot of value on resale. No one wants to buy anything used from me..........lol I am hard on stuff.

If I coudlnt find a cheap 250/650 for a track bike, I would deff check out the the hyosungs. Close to a ninja 250r/sv650s but can be found cheaper.

Second generation SV650 wet weight: 417 pounds
SFV650 Gladius wet weight: 447 pounds

Yeah, no thanks. The SV wouldn't be the same with 30 more pounds of pork on it. How is this progress?
