Hyosung Motard - hmmmmmm - November 29, 2007, 12:29 AM



Hyosung used to have a contract with Suzuki to provide parts/manufacturing for them - when the contract was up they opted to make their own bikes... It's why their GT series bears a remarkable similiarity to the SV - etc...

Makes me really wonder what kind of engine would be in this - drz400 bored out or a rmz Mx bike... If it's somewhere in the middle- and it's cheap it might be worth checking out..

New Hyosung RX450SM
For the first time, Hyosung is bringing a single cylinder, 450cc bike to the range. The new RX450SM is unashamedly a supermotard-style bike, designed for serious fun, but it would also make a great city commuter bike. It was designed using Hyosung’s ‘form follows function’ philosophy; it has a simple, elegant line, yet looks very purposeful.
The engine is a liquid-cooled DOHC four valve single cylinder, with an aluminium silicon (Si) sleeve for more power and durability. The aluminium alloy comprises over 30 per cent Si and is the only alloy of its type currently in production. A PF die-cast piston is more durable and exhibits less thermal expansion than normal cast and applied steel (FE) pistons. Vibration is reduced by counter-balancing. Power output is 50bhp at 8,500rpm.
The frame uses CrMo steel for lightness with rigidity. The down tube of the main frame acts as the oil reservoir and the aluminium sub-frame is a separate section for easier maintenance. The aluminium swing arm is light, but rigid enough for the most demanding conditions. The wheelbase is 1,486mm with a ground clearance of 278mm.
The 45mm upside down front fork is fully adjustable and has 250mm of wheel travel. The rear suspension features a 50mm fully adjustable damper and has 280mm of travel. Brakes are by Brembo with the wavy front disc 260mm diameter, and the rear 250mm.
The digital speedometer includes a stopwatch function. The dry weight of the Hyosung RX450SM is 120kg.

I'd hit it. Oh sorry, wrong thread.

Seriously, I've been looking for a reason to buy a Korean bike. Now maybe there is.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

If you're looking to get into racing Supermoto this bike could be a near perfect option. Although, there is a DRZ400SM class now.
I hope we get some here in the states...at 50hp depending on cost this could become the next "DRZ"

Its been awhile since I did some looking but I thought BHP was how the Europeans did Horsepower (either British or Brake HP) - which was at the crank and not at the rear wheel... I know the DRz was supposed to make 38ish rear wheel hp (not at the crank).. I don't doubt this bike will have some punch - hopefully more than the drz - but I don't believe it's going to be that much...

can anyone confirm ......... thanks

They actually provided many of the suzuki parts and some of the EU only Suzuki bikes came from their plant...

make it reasonable $$ to try on out... and I would do it.
