HYOSUNG WINS CCS sW cHAMPIONSHIP
Powersports Outlet Racing Wins CCS SW Lightweight Championship
Firebird Raceway, Chandler AZ Nov 14th 2010: After a long season beginning back in January, Powersports Outlet Racing won the CCS Southwest Lightweight Championship aboard their Hyosung GT 650R. The weather was perfect for the last race of the season and the team took advantage with two race wins and two second places on the day. Although a rules change this year did not allow the Lightweight Bikes to fight for the Overall #1 plate, the team took pride in knowing that they amassed the most points and would have won the overall expert plate any other year. When all was said and done the team won all classes they contested: LW GP, LW Superbike, ULW Superbike, Thunderbike and the Overall Lightweight Championship.

“It was a great year for the team. We have been racing the Hyosung GT 650R for 4 seasons and all the hard work really paid off this year. We jumped out to an early lead this year, winning the first 9 sprint races in a row, and only finished off the podium in one race all year. I have to thank my friends and pit crew Tim and Annette Flood for all their support. Also, a big thanks to Powersports Outlet for their sponsorship, Jim Cox Racing for providing the great Dunlop tires, the Crew of CCS SW for putting on a great race series, and Hyosung Motors USA for their parts support.”
Powersports Outlet Racing is currently gearing up to contest the WERA West series in 2011. The little Korean bike that could, has proven itself to be a reliable, race winning machine and we are proud to be associated with a great up and coming brand. We look forward to competing on a larger stage next year and showing off the potential of the Hyosung GT 650R.
Powersports Outlet Racing is based out of Prescott, AZ and has raced the Hyosung GT 650R since 2006. They have had countless podium finishes, multiple race wins, and class championships.

NEW ST 7 SHOWN AT EICMA
Hyosung showed off the new ST 7 at the 2009 EICMA show in Italy. Although there has not been a firm release date set, the bike looked nearly ready for production and should be a big hit here in the states. It features an updated, slightly larger, version of the proven 650 engine, with classic cruiser styling. Also displayed at the show were two electric scooter concept vehicles, based on the MS3-250 and SF 50. See more pictures of the GV700 here.
Hyosung has started a bi-monthly newsletter available to everyone. Each issue will feature a Hyosung Dealer, as well as product comparisons and a featured HYO racer. This month features the new 2010 Fuel Injected GT 250R, EP Racing, and MPG Motors. You can read the newsletter here.
Hyosung USA wil be at the Korea Expo in Chicago on Sept 10 -12 (www.kotrachicago.com). They will be displaying the latest Hyosung Products, so if you live in the area stop by and see whats new.
INJECTED AT LAST
The latest news on the Hyosung USA front is the addition of Fuel Injection to the GT and GV 250 as an early release 2010 model. All 2009 650 models are also fuel injected. This resulted in a 4 bhp peak gain in the 650 motors and according to reports they did a good job of getting the mapping correct the first time out! New color schemes and other changes for the new GT models include and new tail section and tail light, new foot peg brackets, new top triple clamp, and new 4 pistion front calipers for the GT 650 (the GT 250 retains the orginal 2 pot calipers)
