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.

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.
