Hyosung is not a common name to United State motorcyclists. However, this Korean company has been working unnoticed in the background of the motorcycle world for over 30 years. In the late 1970s, Hyosung partnered with Suzuki, creating motors for the well-known Suzuki motorcycles. In 1988, Hyosung was the official motorcycle supplier of the 1988 Seoul Olympics. In 2005, Hyosung established a North American division of the company. Ever since then, this motorcycle manufacturer has been quietly improving their bikes and becoming more competitive in the United States market. Because of these improvements, Hyosung is beginning to transform the opinions of many American motorcyclists about Asian motorcycles. Hyosung proves that Asian motorcycles are just as reliable and stylish as many American bikes, and the 2008 Hyosung Aquila demonstrates this fact. An added bonus is that Hyosung gives consumers great-looking motorcycles at very economical prices.
