Hyosung GD250N and GD250R come to India for homologation

With the highly anticipated Benelli launch over and the sales having started everywhere throughout the nation, DSK Motowheels now appears to have moved its concentration back to its first accomplice Hyosung and will be dispatching a scope of new offerings in the impending months. The South Korean producer has imported two units each of the GD250N and the GD250R supersport single-cylinder bikes in the nation for homologation purposes according to the import information. The motorcycles were brought through the CKD course and will be assembled at DSK’s office in Wai.

Beginning with the Hyosung GD250N, the naked street fighter bike looks to some extent like the KTM Duke 200 and will be going up against the same and a large group of different models in the fragment. Taking into account a truss frame, the GD250N is fueled by a 249cc 4-valve, single-pot motor that belts out 28 BHP of force at 8500 RPM and 24 Nm of torque at 7000 RPM, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The bike does the 0-100 km/hr run in 9 seconds and measures a light 145 kgs, giving a good PTW ratio.

Going to the completely faired Hyosung GD250R, the supersport made its presentation a year ago and utilizes the same underpinnings as the GD250N. With a sharp and hitting fairing with a double headlamp bunch, the GD250R loans a huge motorcycle appearance however power has been downsized 27.6 BHP at 9500 from the same 249cc single-barrel motor while torque has seen a peripheral ascent to 24.1 Nm at 7000 RPM. Keeping things light, the bike measures 155 kgs, 1 kg more than the RC 200.

Both the Hyosung GD250 models get USD forks at the front and a monoshock set-up at the back, while braking is performed by 300 mm and 230 mm disc brakes at the front and back. There is no ABS even as a choice, which is doubtlessly frustrating. The GD250 twins will be going up against the KTM 200 twins and are relied upon to be estimated between Rs. 1.80-2 lakhs (ex-showroom) in the nation.
