Hyosung GT250 “Comet”

The Hyosung GT 250 is a Korean bike and was my first ever motorcycle. It is a 250cc V-Twin and physically, was the largest 250cc bike available here in Australia in 2008.

I had mine for over a year during my restrictions and it was a great, reliable performer. I took it on the freeway, easily maintaining a consistent 100km/hr lugging my heavy weight. I enjoyed myself on the Black and Reefton Spurs, even spending an entire afternoon riding up and down the Reefton Spur with a couple of guys on larger bikes – I kept up with them on the twisty bits and the Hyosung didn’t even skip a beat!

Hyosung has received a raw deal from the local motorcycle community, much to my dismay. Understand before you buy, that people will look down on you  for choosing a Hyosung and they will called your bike shit . so be warned. I’m of the opinion these people are the kind to jump on the bandwagon and burn books – so pay them no heed.

The flack is generally due for the bike being Korean (Japanese manufacturers dominate the market) and numerous rumours of unreliability and poor quality which is unfounded. I haven’t met any owner with an issue of any type and I made it a point to speak to everyone I met that owned one. There is a lot of noise on the internet and it’s up to you whether you choose to believe these rumours or not.

If you do, I think you’re missing out on a great first bike. Keep in mind those that have voiced negative opinions are vocal and represent a small percentage of Hyosung owners – and bad news travels further than good news. Also, with every brand you get your lemons, be it Honda, Triumph or Hyosung.

If you get stuck with one of these, I do feel sorry for you – but remember the problem isn’t the brand as a whole.

With LAMS being introduced into Victoria, Learners will now be able to purchase bigger capacity motorcycles, but I’d strongly recommend that anyone with any sense of self-preservation begin with a smaller capacity bike. One option of course is a limited 650cc Hyosung, but remember – once it is de-restricted, it can’t be re-restricted and could prove difficult to sell. Whereas will always have a market.

Whatever way you choose to travel, good luck! You will have fun on a Hyosung, and you will more than likely be using it as a stepping stone to something bigger.

Update: A few years on an I still look back favourably on the Hyosung. A few people ask me what the alternative was – and it was the Honda VTR 250. I still don’t regret getting the Hyo.

Just ride your own bike, and let popular opinion belong to the weak.
