I wonder what their dealer network will be like?

They're working with KR of Korea as an official importer.

I've gone down the DSK of India route, discussing unofficial reselling.

Oops!
Mirror reversed the image and layered a new Hyosung, but now the chain is on the wrong side and the V-Twin is @rse-about-face.

Driving pleasure?
I think they mean riding pleasure.

Great to see a UK Importer again, I wish them the best of luck and look forward to seeing lots of new Hyosungs on the road!

Must get in touch with the dealer listed in our area, and see what they will be stocking - EXIV250/GD250N maybe?  And access to parts too?

Great news anyway.

Glasgow dealer will be Portman Motors, got a nice reply from them and the first bikes should be in stock in about 4 weeks.  They are still organising their servicing arrangements....

Portman Motors
24 Portman Street,
Glasgow
G41 1EJ
 
Sales: +44 (0)141 429 6701
http://www.portman-motors.com

Have been promised an e-mail when bikes are in, and if they have an open day to announce their arrival.  Nothing on their website yet, but they have announced their Hyo dealership on Facebook.

Good stuff.

Yeh, I haven't been in, but they seem to do a lot of Chinese bikes, including WK which is maybe the first Chinese brand to be a bit more 'mainstream' and to have been in bike magazines.  Royal Enfield too, which I have a soft spot for because I've had a couple.

The new Hyo importer also imports Royal Enfield, Sym, Daelim and Keeway, so that may explain why the dealer has added Hyosung.

If I hear they have some Hyo's in, I'll let you know....

I've not been able to cut a dillio with DSK India. They want me to have a retail showroom big enough to fit about 180 bikes in. Plus, now others are bringing them to the UK, there's really no need for me to go down the import route. I'm happy enough just carving up the spoils in the second-hand market like a greasy jackal.
