S/H Hyo's
« on: February 04, 2018, 08:19:37 PM »

Funny,

Don't really see a lot of the bigger ones s/h for sale. Especially the GT650R and the GV650?
I wouldn't mind a s/h GT650R to feck about with / modify etc, and it took me bloody ages to find my GV650......

F*me - it's hard to get people to respond on here sometimes!
What I mean is - why the lack of s/h bikes? Do people like Hyo's to the point they keep them?, or is it maybe that they are not that popular in the first place, so limits s/h sales?
Seems it's the bigger ones that are harder to find.

Anyone can feel free to answer ........ ;D

Oooooh, second hand! I was wondering what s/h was hehehe, well, I can't help you there as I'm in a different continent. But, a used one does pop up for sale where I live from time to time, but there aren't that many to begin with, you probably have more Hyosungs in your country than the total number of bikes in mine, we're at around 20k two wheelers here.

Sydney is swimming in second hand Hyo 650s!

I guess it depends on where you are.

I have never seen a Hyo 125 in Sydney. Ever.

I kept seeing them everywhere I went.

One in my driveway, one in my shed, one in my garage...

Maybe that’s why it seems to me like I am swimming in Hyo 650s!

I’ll make it a weekend plan to remove the one I crashed when trying to jump over the swimming pool. The wife has been nagging me about it for weeks anyway.

Probably because they never sold them here.

They don't sell many in UK, so not many on secondhand market.....and those for sale are there for a loooong time. Guys who took my gt650 trade in are still advertising it a year later.

Not very popular here I'm afraid. :(

Yeah, unfortunately, alot of british bikers, have a very disparaging opinion of anything not produced by  1 of the big 4 japanese brand or Triumph. I don't know why that's the case, but there seems to be a lot of the we know better than everyone else because we're british attitude. I do feel sorry for other makes that try to get a decent foothold in the UK market, especially originating from an asian country that isn't Japan. Personally I'm glad to say I'm not 1 of those, and I'll buy a bike I like regardless of the manufacturer, and so far, my only disappointments have been, Yamaha XJ600 Diversion, Triumph America and the Zongshen RX-3, which will be the next bike I get rid of.
