Beats me, they seem reliable enough, glad I wont be a victim to a grenade. While the bike is pretty tough, the company has changed hands a few times as far as owners go, so while parts availability is still pretty strong, service and support from what I have gathered are pretty lackluster. I wouldn't know, since Arizona has no dealers or service providers local. More fun for me.

A note for the reliability however: Consider upgrading the regulator/ rectifier as well as the wires associated with it. It's a bit overkill but they are known to kick the bucket and take the stator with them, occasionally take the gauge cluster too. (ask me how I know.) If your battery dies its usually a tell tale sign. Really the only chronic problem associated with the Hyosung family.

Hyosung and Suzuki had a technology transfer partnership where Hyosung provided R & D and also manufactured the Suzuki SV650 and the Suzuki VL250 Intruder motorcycles both for Suzuki to export and for the local Korean market. The bikes were never badged as Hyosung.
Hyosung was made the official motorcycle supplier for the 1988 Seoul Sumer Olympics but much to Suzuki's annoyance the bikes carried the Hyosung badge. The manufacturing agreement was ended however Hyosung continues to provide Suzuki with R&D services from the Hyosung offices in Hamamatsu, Japan.
Hyosung uses the Suzuki parts numbering system and many of the 650 and 250 engine parts are interchangeable.
The Hyosung V twin 250 engines of today are superior products compared to the Suzuki offerings however Hyosung are badly let down by the extremely poor build quality of their frames and electrical systems.
The Suzuki 650 engines and gearboxes are the one area that Suzuki has continued to develop into an immensely superior product.

Hyosung never built complete bikes for Suzuki.

The SV group in Australia had a 650 engine and a Suzuki for tear down from that it's pretty obvious that its a cheapened Productionised if you want to be charitable version of the SV engine.

I wonder if the gearbox shafts are interchangeable between the SV and the Hyo.

Possibly look at the part numbers, are the Suzuki ones better?

Maybe, maybe not. Far more likely to exist as a premium after market product, that's for certain.

I never had any trouble with the chrome rusting on my gv250 because everything that is chrome is either plastic or "pot metal"(imitation aluminum). Of course I was never able to get it out of the shop much either. Ha ha😂
