I believe that riding suit is made from real soft Corinthian leather.

Looks good but funny how at the beginning of the ad it sounds like an inline-4 and then like a parallel twin :P

This reminds me of the Hyosung GT650, which was essentially a licensed-out Suzuki SV650. 10 more HP, and frequent engine failures

And I'm assuming no turtles were harmed in the making of this video.

I might consider one if she would come over and do my pre-ride check!

I like the design of the side fairings. So far I've been unable to find a dealer who has the bike in stock so that I can check if it would bike on a naked Versys mod...

I'm not a huge fan of Chinese companies copying products(I compete with them daily). If they can match the quality for a much lower price though I would have to take a look at them. $10,000+ for a sport bike is rediculous IMO so the big guys are just asking for competition to jump in the game.

It wasn't THAT long ago that Honda cars were crap and nobody wanted one. Look at them now though.

IMHO, the Chinese use a very different strategy than the Japanese, who typical take an idea, build on it, figure out ways to improve it, aand figure out how to do it more efficiently. While the Chinese COPY an existing product, while saving costs by not having to do as much R & D, plus cutting LOTS of corners, and never improves in quality, they only add more bells and whistles.

I haven't seen anything yet to convince me otherwise.
