Hyosung GT250R in India

The Kinetic group had rolled Comet GT250R in the year 2005 that had a price tag ranging up to 1.8 lakhs. Since then the Korean manufacturer Hyosung did not bother much about their Indian customers who owned Comet and Aquila but the company now has realized that India has a great potential for the two-wheeler market in terms of sales figure.

Without any further delay the Korean manufacturer is all set to unveil their Hyosung GT250R in India that is targeted to give a tough competition to the Japanese Kawasaki Ninja 250R. And the company is also providing optimum service & also sufficient back up.

What is new in the Hyosung GT250R Bike?
The new Korea red baby Hyosung 250cc bike features full fairing and it looks more like 600cc than a 250cc. The engine comes with oil-cooled DOHC 4-valve, 90° V-twin that generates 27Hp @ 10500rpm and the torque is around 16.73lb/ft @ 8000rpm, which simply amazing.

The fuel system is braced with twin carburettor mikuni BDS26 that is common feature in the US made bikes. But there is one negative point for the Hyosung GT250R – it has only five gears and the sixth gear would have made the bike more efficient.

Want to know more about the Hyosung 250?
The Hyosung GT250R features vacuum fluorescent display that is more common in luxury bikes and the two stage headlights are provided to make your ride easier during nights.

The Hyosung 250cc bike has incorporated the dual lateral frame to minimise the weight and reduce the gravity.

The front tyres are of 110/70-17 54H and the rear tyres come with 150/70-17 60H that enable the rider to get a better grip in tough conditions. There is no specification of when this Korean baby will kiss the Indian roads but the Hyosung 250 is expected to have a price range of Rs 2.25-3 lakhs, which makes it a high end vehicle and is likely to shake up the Kawasaki Ninja 250R.

    Nobodu is going to buy at that price.
    Reason: If there are enough fools to be fooled for that price, then they have already been fooled by bajaj with the shit of ninja and people think that there is no bike in the world other than ninja.
    so even if GT250R is better than ninja, people wont buy it they will go for ninja, coz they are already fooled by bajaj, and they have strip of ninja on their eyes.

    Hyosung please dont launch it if you expect more than 2L.

    • HYOSUNG

      I’ll still go with Hyosung GT250R but hope that price comes under 1.8-2.3 lacs band. If it shoots to 3 lacs they are not going to enjoy Indian market.

    NO MATCH and giving hard time to Ninja is “too good to be true”.
    Though I am not an expert to comment on these bikes of today but still I am pretty sure that Hyosung is going to lose its shirt in this race with Kawasaki Ninja 250 R if it tries to launch a bike against Japanese bikes and I dont think that it could sell even 5% of the total sale of Ninja.
    There is no two wheeler manufacturer in the world, forget Koreans who are way behind, to match the performance, economy, price, versatality and maneuverability of Japanese bikes but we never know.

    • Rakesh

      Bull shit.. who will buy NINJA for 3.2 lac .. it is worth buying hyosung bcoz they made a GT250R like 1000cc other bikes.. and it looks superb compared to NINJA..

  4. Superblackbird XX Ashok

    Mr. Arif… are you a referee?…. how can you say “NO MATCH” on what grounds ??? (or on impulse) without even knowing/testing/riding – the pros and cons of the two bikes ???

    Have you test ridden both the bikes?? …and compared both of them ?- theoretically, practically.?..do you know the technical specifications of both the bikes, and their advanced management systems ? have you compared the specs? quarter miles, bhps, maximum speeds, speed in all gears ? Their ELF (engine life factor), did you test the brakes from 100 kmph to zero in how many seconds.

    I am asking you one simple question ..Plz ANSWER.. How and from where did you get those two magical words….” No Match” ha ha.ha… easier said than done. These days it is very easy to criticise anything, any product! Isnt it (of course without knowing the a,b,c of that product).

    Mr Arif… the product you see in the showrooms Ninja is a CBU (from thailand).. plz wake-up and update your knowledge it is not made in japan (could be made ‘as’ japan)… so here we are talking about Korea and Thailand and their RELIABILITY FACTOR. The product ninja … may be PERFECTED, given shape, life, when it WILL be done/updated indigeniously by BAJAJ and i have full faith that Bajaj will make see change in the quality, reliability and perfection in NINJA (You have a fine classic example in front of you… the honda and hero honda… now where is honda (YAWN) (india) GONE and where is hero honda – CHURNED OVER A MILLION BIKES IN A QUARTER, MARKETED GLOBALLY) it will be a similar case once Bajaj touches NINJA with his magic wand !

    Kindly do not decide on the impulse… all that glitters is not always gold… japan is not a heaven that whatever it produces is a superior product in the whole world. No sir. Example … buy a Royal Enfield bullet, there is a guarantee that a person can use it for 5 years initially without a major breakdown and next 20 years his or her children will use it and again the bike can be restored to shipshape in 3 days… we still have royal enfields of 1950s plying, reliably running… can you match with your japanese bikes with it and with its durability. Will they last half century…. Gaajar ki Pungis.

    Technically, both the machines… the comet and the ninja are advanced machines that will deliver optimum performance… but as per my experience the Comet has a clear edge on ninja as follows:

    Comet Ninja

    a) 75 Degrees V- twin Crank pegged at 1 Point Parallel twin..Big YAWN
    b) Hence less crank weight (short crank) Long Crank for parallel twin
    c) 27bhp 24bhp (Big Yawn)
    d) 4 Camshafts 2 cams (small yawn)
    e) INVERTED FORKS (IF YOU UNDERSTAND) Conventional/Gigantic Yawn
    f) 150/70-17-69H Rear rubbers 130/70-17 Rear rubbers
    (Shame)

    Above are the minimal goodies of Comet. If you want to read what our Indian brothers say about Ninja… Plz read their comments plz…. then decide it for yourself …. Match or No Match….. Plz dont read a book by its cover and decide pronto like a computer or a robot.

    Last but not the least … to each his own. Let the enthusiasts and fans of Comet/Ninja decide….. I am feeling sleepy…. Yawn.

    • Gaurav Kochar

      @ Ashok Plz dont take it at heart and there is no use of getting 1-1 with arif.

U CLEARLY DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT BIKES . GO TO THE OFFICIAL NINJA WEBSITE AND FIND OUT , ITS 33bhp (MORE THAN HYOSUNG) , pARALLELL TWIN (THAT WAS TRUE) , 4 VALVES PER CYLINDER AND IT IS DOHC . AND HYOSUNG IS NOT 4 CAM SHAFTS WHO IN THE WORLD TOLD YOU ABOUT THAT HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !!! THE BIGGEESSSTTT YAWN !!! hYoSUNG SUCK DUDE !

    • shravan

      Exactly!!!!!

  11. Javed

    Guys dont fight.
    here we are talking about the ninja with original parts made by kawasaki tested in us or japan or whatever but not in india.
    the bike launched in india is a kind of modification with parts added by bajaj and changed spec, doesnt give a 33bhp.
    shouldnt pay 3L for a thi made bike customized in india.

  12. dineshsnake

    hi guys comet is one of the best in class and cheap machine ninja is great bike with a best manufacture name but coming to bajaj iam not happy both the ninja and comet r best in there own characters both r awesome machine but wen they make it to india by deales r others like kinetic and bajaj there name and use of this bike is getin bad no mechani and no spares other part of the world enjoys these bike s like a common pulsar ,,,!!!!!!?????? the tvs and bajaj r the companys responsible fr cheating us like this fr this much long yrs but now companys r lookin at india in future we may have good quality bikes till then cheers

  13. Ninja-hyosung

    Hi Guys,

    Hyosung bikes are too good, they are biggest in its class. If one places these bikes besides each other, any one will easily choose Hyosung over Ninja. Only thing I will be worried about is the parts & how it rides on Indian roads as this is heavy compared to others, but its a pleasure to ride one. If the price is kept right, this bike will easily beat competition.

  14. Merwyn

    When it will launch in mumbai….
    And where will be the showroom…. And proper price…. And will i get loan on it to buy… Pls let me knw the details…

    thanks…

  21. imran

    its true ,bajaj has cheated us by seling ninja at high price, i bought 2 .86 lakh.blody even no digital system.

  22. Senthil

    Dudes.. Get a Royal Enfield Bullet and enjoy the long term satisfaction than a short term pleasure.

  23. vijay

    well lots of conversation going on here. Ninja a lovely bike but ya its true that it is expensive reason is it is a CBU from thailand. No digital console,yup its draw back but dude its kawasaki. In 250cc SBK’s ninja have created a market for itself just see to the reviews in youtube if u want. see the comparision between hyosung gt250r and ninja 250r ninja won. you can spend money on ninja but on hyosung no way. korean company has already come to India when kinetic was in market but it failed. simple reason is notmost of the people have liked the hyosung bikes. now it have launched gt650r and s7 with a very stipulated price tag. Even there are roomers in web portals that Hyosung is launching GT250r with in 1.5 lakhs to compet with Honda CBR 250R.

  24. Richard Barooah

    Yes Vijay I agree.
    I am a cruiser fan..and I had a GV 250 it good at that price and I have touch 130 KMS in few seconds and used it for 6 years, but ST7 is too expensive at 6.5 On road Pune…ideally it should have been price at max 4 lakhs on road..
    Garware got Arjun Rampal to market the bike.
    I feel either the Garware”s are arrogant or over ambitious.
    If they want to be successful they should re-think about price. I would gone ahead by now had it been below or at 4 Lakhs.

    Any new on GV 250 / or any other cruiser 300+ cc coming to India do inform me..people

  25. rishad shivani

    the price sucks in front of honda cbr 250r it is too much for a 250cc

  27. Vitamin_S

    There is a reason why its a Ninja… check out the comparo here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkqDzeCVkX0

  28. sumit

    whatever said above are just a list of fool tales…in india bike sales records sre marked by only looks n service..bajaj pulsar220f and karizmaR hav poor fuel economy yet r in sale due to there looks..hyusung gt250 has a look of a complete superbike and if they r able to provide good service then i may work as a success for the korean company..

  29. Sumit

    Awesome bike, but i fear servicing of bike and availability of spare parts would be a problem.
    If we consider worst case scenario of Hyosung not being successful in India, they will pack there bags and run away but the buyer will be at loss as non availability of spare parts & servicing will hit the buyer.Same thing happened with their earlier launches – Comet & Aquila.
    Kindly share your views for the same…..

  30. samrat

    ninja 250r is a class apart…so no comments please….. it has got six gears….. its from kawasaki….. a renown company all over the world…….. if the price is around 1lakh 60thousand or 8othousand then people can think of buying it…..i have a pulsar 220…atleast i will spend my money on ninja…if the prices are same…

  31. samrat

    the bike hyosung gt 250 is gud but its standard is not as per ninja….

  32. karan

    what is the top speed of this bike that it can reach reply fast

  33. Vivek

    To all the bike lovers the experts and illiterate nerds discussing nonsense above.
    Guys grow up . First if you need power you need to forget the whole thing about fuel efficiency . If you need both with value for money you better forget it and go for the honda250 .
    Next if you are so desperate for a ninja or hyosung prepared to be spending 3L on them go ahead and fool yourself up . Or if you feel you don’t need anything more than this power in life .
    My suggestion would be to wait till 2012 or 13 save another 3-4lac and buy a 600cc which will blow your ball@s and retain some fuel eco too . Buy a car for 2_3 lac instead of a korean or japanese crossed thai bike and enjoy comfort and protection and 80horses of power like a lady behind the weel with makeup on her. Serious bikers are born to ride bikes and reach speeds. Not complain about spare parts and fuel economy like married women bargaining at a vegetable shop!

  34. Abhishek

    I am a Ninja owner, but i will be giving my reviews without getting baised. Well as far as technical spec are concerned,
    Ninja:
    33Bhp at a much lower rpm 8k, 4 valve/cyln, Liquid-Cooled, 22nm, FI.
    GTR250:
    27Bhp at 10500Rpm, 2valve/cyln, Oil-cooled, and is a Carburetor powered.

    Well the above is sufficient to say which bike will be better. The only good thing about GTR is dual front disk brakes and border tyres. Price could be a plus point for GTR but not the performance. Top speed for the bikes are almost equal.

    Thanking you.

  35. Feroze yousuf

    I want to sale my comet excellent condition contact 9831777040

  36. bunty

    GTR250r is good bike :D. should have been with liquid- cooled n SIX gears would have rock solid in India. Is hyosung trust worthy? and how about CBR250R? did it even stand in the race.?

  37. Amit Pradhan

    Hey…hey…hey….!! actually some people don’t know about Ninja 250R, it is the best bike in comparison of 250cc segment…!! No other 250cc bike can defeat the Ninja 250R it gives the power 32bhp to 33bhp… i know Hyosung GT250R is good bike at low cost, but it can never defeate Ninja 250R.. Hyosung gives the power 26bhp-28bhp… Hyosung can defeat CBR 250 but can never to Ninja 250R….Ninja is costly coz of it’s features guys if you want smooth ride then purchase Hyosung, but if you love racing the go for Ninja…..
    @Kawasaki I Love you Ninja…..!!

  38. anurag

    hyosung DONT U THINK THAT CBR250R WILL GIVE COMPETITION AS IT HAS THE SAME CC AND A LESS PRICE. dECREASE THE PRICE AND I WILL BUY IT.
