Compared to other 250cc street bikes, this is hands down a better looking bike, better handling bike and is fuel injected. The speed limit in Massachusetts is 65, and this will do it no problem. I bought this bike in April, 2010 and put about 950 miles on it on the weekends and sometimes after work. It's perfect for short rides, but a little uncomfortable for long hauls. I'd suggest new grips right off the bat for it to make it more enjoyabe. It's an awesome bike, but no one knows the Hyosung name and if you looking for a bike to hang out with the local riders at the coffee shop, yeah this one will get some attention. Not for the fact that it's a sweet looking bike, but people will be baffled at the brand name. Hyo-who? Yeah I get that a lot. On the road it is smooth. It shifts nicely and for a 250cc, it's pretty quick. 0-60 in 5 seconds is very decent. It's very agile on the curves. On the highway, the bike is very light but has great air flow given the body design. Tucked down I'm comfortable at 65-70 and it's smooth, but it's not a highway bike. Take it on the back roads and its awesome. Last summer I got stuck in traffic for two hours in 92 degree heat. The bike was fine with no signs of overheating or exhaustion. That was pretty impressive. Again, it's awesome bike but only if you want a motorcycle to keep. Resale is near impossible without taking a bath, as these do not hold their value that well. The trade in value at end of season (I wanted to upgrade to a Hyosung cruiser) for my bike from the dealer forced me to toss a cover on it and keep it for another year (glad I did). Overall I'd say quality is there. Integrity and resale, not so much. If you don't mind the Hyo-who folks and just want a bike to cruise and not do 200 mph. on, this is a sweet ride.
