We’ve Got Hyosung Touch Up Paint
Hyosung Motors and Machinery is a Korean company founded in 1978 from its parent company the Hyosung Corp. It started producing motorcycles under a license agreement with the Japanese Suzuki. The following years proved very profitable for the enterprise and they were selected as the motorcycle supplier for the 1986 Asian Games that took place in Seoul. The partnership proved successful as the company received a contract to once again provide motorcycle for the 1988 Summer Olympics also held in Seoul.
In the meantime, Hyosung opened its own research and development center in 1986 with the objective to develop its own design of motorcycles which took no time to attain. The first internally conceived Hyosung machine was ready to fly out of the research institute in 1987. As soon as their plans were finished, mass production started and before long, Hyosung exported its bikes in Japan.
As a next step, the company parted in two divisions, the Hyosung Machine Sales Incorporation and the Hyosung Motorcycle Sales Incorporation. The sales were as strong as ever and in 1991, Hyosung opened its second manufacturing plant in Deajeon Deasung. The production capabilities offered by this new factory allowed the brand to start exporting in Europe, notably in Italy. No later than 1996 rolled the one millionth Hyosung motorcycle.
They say that the first million is the hardest to obtain, well it proved true for the motorcycle producer. It took the brand 9 years to assemble one million motorcycles but it only took 5 to achieve a cumulative production of two millions in 2001. The following years saw a division of the company operating in the U.S. In 2007, Hyosung Motors joined the S&T Group but it was acquired once again in 2014, the name changed to KR Motors.
The newly formed company is now expanding its range of motorcycles from the simple commuting bikes to more recreational machines. They are now making a wide range of sportbikes, cruisers, scooters, off-road and ATV’s. In the chance that something would happen to the paint on your Hyosung, TouchUpDirect has you covered.
