It's simple really...

Hyosung doesn't give a shit.

It's a budget bike in a tight market, they make them and farm them out to importers and that's where their interest ends.

There's no point in creating brand loyalty because as soon as most of their owners can they buy something better.

Their business model is to ship lots of bikes to people who don't know any better.
I wouldn't say I "didn't know better"  :o .
I know they are shit but easy to put right , that is why I bought my second piece of shit  ;D

But you're not their target market kids who want a sports bike they can make out to their mates is a R1 are.

They'll it and crash it before it plays up and then buy a Supra.

If I hadn't crashed mine I may well have kept it but that would be down to my stubborness rather than any brand loyalty.

Then their business model is wrong and the management need a shake up.
It's idiotic to not address KNOWN faults, cheaply at manufacturing level, which would then enable them to lose the reputation for unreliability, which in itself must lose them sales.

How many people Google "Hyosung reliability", and then go for something else?

Hyosung are in fact pretty popular .
All my mates who ride all sorts of super sports all know of Hyosung and how they are getting better .
When you sort out the electrics , there's not much to go wrong .
It is a pretty solid bike , mechanically .

I don't disagree mate.
Build quality + f&f of mine is fine.
But I maintain that if they are aware of the electrical issues - they should sort it.
To me, it's just nonsensical to ignore it and allow it to taint their reputation.

I am not sticking up for Hyosung but one problem that you get with all vehicles is that they are normally OK for the country they were made in (no excuse here mind).
Remember early Japanese cars that were exported to the UK , the were rust buckets due to our weather and salting of the roads every winter .
Here in Australia , I imagine the condition of my wiring is a lot better than say , the UK due to the difference in weather and remember , the enemy of any wiring system is SALT & WATER .
Again , this is no excuse but telling how it is . Other manufacturers don't seem to have this problem so I don't know what the solution is .
Mechanically they are spot on for the most part .
I know you are going to get failures of regulators etc. but one easy step to take to make your bike more reliable is use Ensto grease on all your electrical connectors (with the exception of your HT conections of course  :o) . This will keep moisture out and also make for a better electrical connection .

I must have one of the good ones. Bought it second hand to use as a track bike and I can't say any thing bad about it. it's never given me any trouble. All I've ever done is upgrade the brakes to 4 piston type and maintenance. It won't keep up with the Jap mutli's but it's a great all rounder

So the 650 engine is considered mechanically robust? Hmmm.....
