Hyosung is out to impress frugal entry-level riders, however, not pious magazine editors. Such shortcomings are more glaring to us than they will be to a rookie trading up from a 1980 Yamaha Exciter with 97,000 miles on the clock. Perspective, you see, is everything. Without the benefit of recent SV650 seat time, for example, you might not mind fiddling with the choke lever on cold mornings. You might not even notice the engine's extra clatter, leisurely slow-revving character or the extra neutral between second and third in the sticky-shifting gearbox. Rationalize the mushy front brake-call it forgiving-at least until the back of an RTD bus gets too big, too fast once too often. We, on the other foot, get paid to notice all that stuff. And when you step up from building scooters and wispy 250s to a 650 with some serious competition, sooner or later cash-money customers will notice, too.
