Hyosung, the South Korean motorcycle manufacturer has confirmed that they will be launching the GD250R, a quarter litre motorcycle in a few countries. Hopefully DSK Hyosung will be encouraged by their reasonable success in India and would soon follow suit and introduce the bike here as well.
The bike has already been visiting a lot of Auto Shows and has been officially unveiled in Korea a few days back. The GD 250R will be powered by a 249 cc liquid cooled, single cylinder engine churning out 28 PS of power at 9,500 rpm and 24.17 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm.
For starters, GD250R is the sporty version of the naked GD250N, which was showcased in India at the Auto Expo and there is a word that it (GD250N) will be launched here. Both the motorcycles have 6 speed transmissions and carry the same engine which is the newest & the most modern in Hyosung’s family.
The front suspension are 37 mm upside down forks and a brilliant looking rear shock which is preloaded with adjustments. Braking duties are overseen by a 4-piston 300 mm single disc at the front and a 2 pot caliper mated with a 230 mm disc in the rear. The seat height at 810mm is slightly high and the use of light weight materials allows the weight to be controlled at a fantastic 138kg (dry) only! GD250R is available in three color options – Black, Grey and white.
Hyosung already has the GT250R on sale in India which is a two-cylinder motorcycle and produces 28PS of power and 22.07Nm of torque. You can read its exhaustive road test review here.
