Next 250cc motorcycle from Hyosung could be launched in October
The Korean motorcycle company Hyosung is expected to launch the fully-faired Hyosung GD250R in the month of October here in India. Market analysts call this move a meticulous one, in the sense that Hyosung showcased the naked version of the bike i.e. GD250N at the 2014 New Delhi Auto Expo, but intead is launching its sports version first. Such a sudden change in its strategy has been done keeping in mind the interests and profound love for the faired bikes among Indian customers. Offering a more sporty appearance and better stability, faired machines have always been among the most sought after properties. The Hyosung GD250R was recently spotted in India and here in this post we’ve put together all the details on the Hyosung GD250R India launch, price, specs, etc.
With an expected price tag of Rs. 1.9 lakhs (ex-showroom, Pune).
Engine and other Specs:
The GD250R is a full faired 250cc bike which has a liquid cooled, fuel injected engine. The shared single-cylinder mill has a peak power output of 28 BHP and produces a maximum torque of 24 Nm. Power is transmitted to the wheel via a six-speed manual gearbox. Given that the GD250R has the fairing to assist it in dealing with wind resistance and provide better aerodynamics, it should be able to push the needle a little further. The Korean motorcycle is also expected to sport the Indian MRF tyres.
The suspension arrangement on the 250cc Hyosung G250R consists of a pair of inverted forks in front and monoshock in the back. Petal disc brakes are installed on both the front and rear to give the rider the ability to bring the bike to a standstill in very less time. The GD250R boasts of a digital instrument cluster. The GD250R has a clip-on handlebars, which gives it a sportier orientation than the straight-wide ones that feature on the GD250N naked version.
Given the love for full faired bikes in our country, Hyosung is trying to woo a wider audience with the GD250R that will be competing against the upcoming KTM RC 200 and the Honda CBR250R in the single-cylinder, quarter-litre segment. But only time will tell whether the bike will be well received by the buyers.
