They look like re-badged hyosungs!

Yup, it's a rebadged Hyosung.

Very unfortunate. My short time in the HD world tells me that Korean bikes are not going to sell well out of HD shops.

It can only be downhill after the 700 Intimidator, I guess...

I would love to get an intimidator.


The hyosung will be assembled in the usa so it will work in Harley shops. Harley isn't a pure usa bike either.

The press release said dirt bike sales are down 80% so the street market will carry them through the tough times and help support their dirt bike sales. They will still be coming out with new dirt models.
The idea behind hooking up with Harley dealers(not Harley corp) is to get young people into harley shops.

Makes enough sense to me.

Looks like a lazily engineered HD knock off, like the first Victories until they got wise and figured out you cant look like the competition if your going to compete with them.

Good Luck with that ATK.......

Strange tho,, the 650 has about the same hp as the big HD twin,, not the torque,, but its listed at 79hp.. thats almost twice what HD lists the sportster at.. and do you really think they will be built here... I'm sure "the factory is planned" but they will wait and see if they sell first..
