Looks great, eh?

Ad says "Wolverhampton's new Hyosung dealer" - I hope he knows something we don't know about parts, and just hasn't found out what Hyo back up is like yet!

My bike was in for a service at an ex-Hyosung dealer last week with no problems, mainly oil change and it's a Suzuki pattern oil filter (needed a new chain though - sexy gold one) - I asked about parts and he just orders from Korea/Asia when he needs Hyosung specific parts, just like the rest of us....

Yet just on 2 months later Woverhampton's "new Hyosung dealer" have no Hyosung parts or bikes for sale and don't even list the Hyosung brand at all, anywhere.

My local-ish Hyosung dealer doesn't know what a GD is.

"You mean the Karion?"

That is because as I have been saying for a year now, "They don't exist!"
Sure, you'll see the odd one out and about but that is just sold concept/demo stock.

The GD models were only a very limited production, concept bike. Dealers could order a single unit and use it as a demo. Once it became apparent that they weren't going into full production, most dealers sold their one and only unit.

Ahh, Highways motorcycles, I know it well, but, you need to be careful when buying from them.. Also, rumours a few years ago, that they were linked to a spate of bike thefts in the area, you'd take your bike in for some work or mot, and before long the bike would be gone, they are inextricably linked to allbikes, who break & sell many second hand parts. I should say I never saw any proof of this, but I have had a couple of suspect dealing with both Highways & allbikes in the past.
