I'd add that on the disadvantage list and remove the questionable reliability entry because its been proven again and again by riders and mechanics that hyosung bikes are just as reliable as the more known manufacturer. Its true in their first few years of operation early in the decade they had a few lemons and a few pissed off customers but with major improvements coupled with the two year warranty no rider should be afraid of it breaking down on them any more than the next honda or suzuki.
Nice. This is the kind of information that I'm looking for! Honest info from people that actually ride the bikes listed. Thanks

You're not a moron, you're just misunderstood.
