Fro the older guys on here.....you will remember a time when the term 'JAP CRAP' was an every day part of life. The young guys will know that in todays world, Japanese stuff is considered right up there with the best. In the motoring world, how did the Japs get accepted into our lives? well ther cars has stuff in em that you had to pay EXTRA for in our holdens and fords. Eg heaters reclining seats carpets remote boot releases adjustable steering wheels well, when i bought my first jap bike, a kawaski eliminator, it didnt have a fuel guage and run on carbies. i loved that bike as it was my first love (mbike terms!). sure my boulevard has a fuel gauge and has EFI, but its not an entry level bike either. today im picking up a new bike for the lady. you will think its humorous, a GV250, mini cruiser. it has EFI, Fuel Gauge, Tacho, alloy wheels and a 2 year unlimited kms warranty. its not going to tear the bitumen out of the road, but let me tell you that i rode one on saturday, and its quicker than my old kawaski, and more tractable down low, thanks to EFI. the minor trim and bling on older hyosungs used to disintegrate, and was VERY tacky, but this may have improved, or its as bad as before. time will tell. all i know is that i am very proud to buy this machine and will love it, NO LESS than my Boulevard. safe riding!
