Very nice, i've thought about buying one, but they seem to be getting extremely popular. The dealer around here only had the naked and had a few deposits on their next shipment already.

yeah its really popular in here too. It became classic motorbike beginner bike.
I think they and the ninja 250 are just gonna become "the normal" motorbike around with. With gas at its peak, a 250 sportbike is like a sexy alternative to a scooter.

I've heard they get low 70s for mpg. :thumbup:


oh and just an FYI(maybe you have them already) but in 3-6 weeks hyosung is releasing the EFI versions here in the states.

yeah i cant wait to see it. I'd imagine its gonna something great when a salesmen talks me out of buying immediately and waiting until EFI hits the market.

let us know how it goes for you. I'm buying a bike in a little under 2 weeks and i'm tempted to buy a 650.

yeah there naked 650 looks like a good buy against the SV since you get more for your money
supposedly they are pretty similar. But i'd be tempted to pick up a decent used sv650. There are a lot running around in good shape with low miles for cheap. If i were getting a 250, i'd definitely go for the hyosung like jhonathan's. I like the new ninja 250's looks better thent he old ninja 250's looks, but the hyosung is just as good looking (if not better) and it's cheaper! That little electronic fuel guage is pretty trick.

the problem with the ninja 250 is that you cant find them. I've been 5 kawi dealers. Every one is either sold out until the 09s or sold out for the next few months.

As for the naked 650 hyosung. I like it alot, but its damn near identicle to the 99-02 SV650. The frames even look the same, but if i were hellbent on buying new and always liked the 99-02 naked style(which i do) then you have an option to pretty much buy a new one.

I kind of thought my 400sm was the cool alternative to a moped. I fit much better and have so much more fun on my sm than on my girlfriends old 250 ninja.

My bro in laws got one. Great starter bike and not small like a ninja 250. Gets up to speed quick and can cruse at 75 mph all day. Ive got it all the way up to 105 mph, not bad for a 250! Looks sweet too, if your not in to bikes it looks just like any other jap bike.
