True, the hyo’s biggest let down is its heavy wheels!

If the koreans had mad the wheels lighter instead of heavy cast metal, it would have weighed as much as another similar sized 150

Frame is only 30kgs lol.

The older generations models are generally a little bit beefier from stock than the new shape RC

RC is a bit lighter than old gen, except it was let down by slower parts fitted to it , so we’re talking  88mph vs 82-84 on RC.

You may consider a lithium light battery to cut some weight off, better tyres have less weight , the stock suicidal tyres weigh a tone of bricks!   and ofcourse, ditching the stock parts for upgrades seems to do them better justice now.

More torque can be done on the extreme scale such as better custom valve springs, carb needle , jet tuning , ht wire changes , k&n filter, 250 cooler so it runs colder, etc…. but that’s a topic for another day lol , some tuning can be individual based
