Pune based Garware Motors that is selling S&T Motors Hyosung motorcycles in India, have confirmed that the GT250R is set for launch in May 2012. The new upcoming bike will be launched in the 250 cc category in the Indian market. The new Hyosung bike will give a tough competition to its close competitors. The bikes will be launched in the performance and cruiser bikes segment.
While in the performance segment, Hyosung will further bring the naked GT250 – the same Comet that Kinetic imported and sold here a few years ago. The GT250R boasts a 27PS, 250cc V-twin in a twin-spar frame nearly identical to its 650cc sibling. Then there are upside down forks, monoshock rear suspension and fat tyres. We expect the price to be around Rs 2-2.5 lakh.
The company already sells three of their unique models ST7 Royale and Hyosung GT650R and GT650N all across the country with 16 dealership which also includes presence in tier II and tier III cities. (See the walkaround video below the jump)
