There are plenty of 250s on the market, but the majority are undersized and underpowered. Not the GT250R says Hyosung which is all set to launch the new GT 250R and the naked variant GT 250N in India by March. It has the same dimensions as its 650cc sibling, so it feels like a full size sports bike, and it’s all wrapped in a slick aerodynamic fairing with racy clip-on handlebars.
The Hyosung GT 250R specification includes a Double OverHead Cam (DOHC) 4-stroke V-twin fuel injected engine, twin piston hydraulic disc brakes, ‘upside-down’ front suspension, alloy wheels, electric start and digital instrumentation.
Styled to follow timeless traditions, the GV250 cruiser will also make it into the Indian market. The GV250 is now fitted with EFI for performance, smooth running, low emissions and easy starting. With its updated DOHC 8 valve, 249cc fuel injected, V-Twin engine, low seat height and excellent suspension package the GV250 makes for an exceptional ride.
The 250cc market is gaining momentum in India. The current offerings are Kawasaki 250 and the Honda CBR 250. Other two- wheeler players are also looking at entering this segment.
