informative Ninja 250 video

I don't see a video section on this forum so I thought I'd post it here. This is a nice, informative video from MCN comparing the Ninja 250 to the Hyosung GT250. I think we all know who's going to win, but the comments they make about both bikes are pretty interesting.

Yikes, that Hyosung looks like a complete pile! You could tell the guys wanted to like it, but the Ninja 250 was just so much better in every category. A new rider doesn't want a bike that's built like crap and the Ninja 250 reliability and build quality are top notch.

Bingo. If only Hyosung would take the time and check their fit and finish I'm sure they would get a much better reputation. Same thing with their GT650. It's close to the SV650, but just not quite there.

The other thing too is that Kawasaki has such a large dealer network that if something goes wrong with your Ninja 250 you can easily get it fixed. Not as much with the Hyosung.

Hopefully Korean moto makers get to the level of Korean car makers and eventually rival their counterparts. A third contestant versus the ninja 250 would be nice.

It took Hyundai a long time to get where they are now. I'd expect Hyosung has a long road to travel, too.
