I wonder if he'll make it as a viable business? I dare say he'll have to put them on the track to gain any kind of notoriety and build on his racing heritage. It is a Hyosung GT650 engine in an American designed lightweight frame.

Looks nice. How much weight is considered light ?

That saddle looks way too wide though. My girl and I could probably fit side to side on it :D

From the website:

Exotic styling meets American quality[/color] to give you something unique, something special.

I never really had this opinion about anything automotive made in the USA after the late 70's. Maybe I'm wrong about bikes.

American Quality = Honda in the automotive world believe it or not

MSRP $7999, just spend the 1k extra and buy a 600.

This manufacturer was featured in "Sport Rider" magazine in December (I think). Here's a link to their online version of the article:

I was living in VA at the time, and took a ride to their factory (warehouse ;)), to look at their bikes and talk to the guys. Nice bunch of folks (wouldn't really let me into their shop for long), and a reasonably priced bike. Darn sexy styling too!!

I read about some problems with Hyusung motors some where on the net. Can't remember where,though.Sorry to be so vague,lost a lot of brain cells back in the 70's.
