It’s been 30 years since Hyosung motorcycles was founded in South Korea and, to commemorate the milestone, a limited-edition version of the popular GV650 cruiser has been released for the 2008 model year.
The GV650 has always been one of Hyosung’s best-selling models, combining sporty cruising with ample power and an attractive price tag. The anniversary model still combines all those elements, but it’s in the finish where the disparity kicks in: the tubular frame and wheels on the limited-edition are red, and the rest of the machine is a deep and lustrous black. Only 36 of the stunning V-twin powered models will be coming into Australia, and are due to arrive next month at $9490 (plus ORC).
“Most people probably think that Hyosung only started producing motorcycles, scooters and ATVs recently,” said Mark Fattore, the Marketing Manager at Hyosung Australia. “This model highlights that Hyosung has 30 years of motorcycle design and manufacturing experience in South Korea and is a serious international player in its own right.”
Hyosung motorcycles are manufactured at a massive industrial complex in Changwon City, which is located on the south-eastern tip of the Korean Peninsula. In 2007, Hyosung Motors and Machinery was acquired by the S&T Group – one of South Korea’s biggest corporations with a global turnover of more than $10 billion. The manufacturing company is now called S&T Motors.
