Maybe as an importer to Germany. I don't know if Hyosung meets the current Eurospec emissions requirements. Their new 250 single sportbike might, I don't know about the 650cc engines, an older design. They are very much in business in the USA, offices in Marietta, GA.

That may be the case, the germans do not seem to appreciate the korean delights.  :D

We have ABS demand in EU now, but that should be easy for Hyosung to solve.

I'm still waiting for them to release their 2016 models  :P

I hope they do well in america, then bazzaz or dynojet might update their hyosung fuel unit with appropriate parts for the O2 sensors.

There is more than one Hyosung. The Hyosung corp that makes tire components and ATM machines and KR motors which brands it's motorcycles with the name Hyosung. As far as I know the KR motors presence in the USA selling Hyosung motorcycles is in Norcross, GA just north of Atlanta in a four bay tin building. Do not confuse Hyosung motors USA with Hyosung USA.
