The UM V2S-650R will be piloted by Brad Armstrong in this weekends WERA West race. This will be the first time the Hyosung built machine will race in this series. UM Motorcycles are made in South Korea by Hyosung Motors and rebranded by United Motors. In coming years UM is said to be developing thier own rolling stock powered by the Hyosung 650 motor.
Brad will be riding the V2S650R for the whole season. It will be interesting to see how he does on the bike. There have been reports of some motors going bad on the Hyosung 650 machines. However, a lot of owners seem to be satisfied with the bikes on owner forums including other Hyosung racers.
