HYOSUNG Sportbikes?

Never heard of them but this is what I found on them.

Hyosung is one of the largest and most respected companies in South Korea, and was founded in 1952. Hyosung Motors & Machinery Inc was established in 1978 as a motorcycle manufacturer. In 1979 a technical tie up was established with Suzuki Motor Corp of Japan for producing Suzuki models for some Asian markets. Hyosung established its own R&D centre in 1986 to develop models under the Hyosung brand for export to global markets under the banner "Made by Hyosung, Ridden by The World". 12% of staff are engaged in R&D to keep pace with aggressive development of new models suitable for export markets. Hyosung produce some models that carry a Japanese brand name that are exported worldwide, and components produced by Hyosung can be found on several other brands of motorcycles.

People seem to forget: Hyosung produces the SV650 for Suzuki. The exclusivity contract expired, and now they can make a similar product for themselves. The difference is that the Hyosung has better suspension and a full fairing for less money.

We met with our dealer rep at the Indy show this last weekend. If everything goes well, we'll have them in our showroom in a few weeks!!

I always thought it was the other way around.
