South Korean bike manufacturer, Hyosung in association with Pune’s leading real estate developing firm DSK (D S Kulkarni developers) has been busy preparing its own missiles in recent months. Now the company is all-set to launch their four product in India, the 2013 GV650 Cruiser motorcycle on 16th January, 2013.
The GV650 is the most powerful 650cc cruiser on the market. With belt drive, triple disc brakes, adjustable foot rests and performance that rivals many sport bikes, you can show the world that cruisers perform too. It comes powered by a 650cc V-twin engine that is very similar to that of the Suzuki SV650. And this is the same engine that also powers the GT650R.
This 650cc V-twin engine produces a peak power of 70 BHP while peak torque is rated at 60 Nm. The engine is liquid cooled and comes with a DOHC-4 Valve layout. The V-Twin motor is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox that transmits the power and torque to the rear wheel through a belt drive.
The GV650 cruiser motorcycle is expected to undercut the Hyosung ST7 cruiser in terms of pricing, with a price tag of Rs. 5 lakh. This motorcycle will be imported into India through the completely knocked down(CKD) route. The CKD kits will be assembled at DSK-Hyosung’s Wai assembly facility at Maharashtra.
The Hyosung GV650 should be here by mid-Jan, followed by the GV250, which will be launched a little later, in March-2013. Apart from these bikes DSK-Hyosung is also planning to launch a 2013 version of Hyosung GT650R sportsbike in India.
