that's what I have been reading too, but with the speedo being inaccurate at higher speeds, I guess it would be a little less.

BTW, can you post some big pics of your bike? I am in the process of buying one right now and I want to see what it looks like since my dealer does not have a black one in stock.

Hey,

I just tripped over this thread. That bike looks AWESOME! I hear good things about the HYOSUNG bikes. I think they build the SV-650 for Suzuki . (maybe that is a rumor, dunno)

Anyway, it DOES look like a Gixxer. :boink

The blacks is really nice. I had a chance to sit on the newer Hyo250's and they are much better than last year. I like the more aggressive seating position and in general, I think the bike looks hot. I even like its cyclops headlights more than the Gixxer's.:headbang

If you noticed a difference, it was because the bike was set up differently. Perhaps the rear-sets and/or clip-ons were in a different position. The bike hasn't been redesigned, they've just changed over to painting the chassis and wheels black, instead of silver.

Cheers

lol. it is not 110 or 105. not even a 100. if you touch 90mph, that's way more than what the bike can do. i've riden 250. although it is fast on local streets and very frisky, when you get on freeway with it, it's not. but you'll do 60 just fine with absolute no problem. if you want power you need 650. i've gone top speed on mine, 650 way over than what the dealer guy told it would do. but and then, am pretty light guy maybe that helped. i knew i wanted more power on freeways that's why i got 650. and i think youtube dude from europe had something done to it to go that fast and it's a bit hilly. ive seen it.

I think it was the clip-ons position that was changed on the bike that I sat on last week. Cuz the bike I sat on last year was very upright, like Ninja 650R. Or maybe I shrunk???? :boink

Yeah, it'll get your license revoked without a problem. How much faster does a person need a street bike to be? In fact, when I swap the chain and sprockets, I'm bumping the rear sprocket up a couple of teeth. As I don't currently hit the redline at top speed, I wouldn't really give up much, if anything, while picking up a little more drive at the bottom end.
