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.

Hyosung GT250R

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.

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.

nobody will buy korean comet bike mileage 18 to 20 km per litre. no mechanic will touch the bike spares will be costlier compare to other fuel efficient bikes and even a common roadside mechanic will repair with few tools RAMULU

THERE IS NO NEWS FOR LAUNCH OF COMETGTR250 AS KINETIC NO LONGER EXISTS IN INDIA MAHINDRA HAD TAKEOVER KINETIC. ITS ONLY SOMEGUY are COPYING AN ARTICLE FROM A SITE NAMED BIKES4SALE.IN AND COPYING IT TO DIFFERENT DIFF BLOGS AND U WILL FIND THE SAME SETS OF PEOPLE REPLYING WORD TO WORD IN SAME MANNER. This is all crap dont waste ur time talking dreaming or waiting for this bike, even launch of Honda VTR 250 is dropped by honda company after considering response of comet, aquilla and ninja.

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

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.

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.
By on 31-10-2009
@ Ashok Plz dont take it at heart and there is no use of getting 1-1 with arif.
U looks like to be a despo lover of comet. Believe it or not NINJA have technology advancement then comet. N dont go one to one its all about sharing views, no debate is going on here
By on 04-06-2010
This is a reply to Mr Javed . I knew people like u were total ******, people like u dont think before talking you just says it because it makes you look cool. NOW U *** GO AND COMPARE THE SPECIFICATIONS OF THE NINJA AND HYoSUNG AND FIND OUT THE DIFFERENCE AND GET TO KNOW WHY THE PRICE IS HIGH GO AND DO THAT NOW U ****. HYOSUNG IS THE CHEAPEST BIKE IN THE WORLD , CHECK THIS VIDEO ON YOUTUBE HERE'S THE TITLE " MCN Roadtest: Kawasaki 250 R Ninja v Hyosung GT250R"

By on 28-04-2010
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.
By on 28-04-2010
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.

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.

Dudes.. Get a Royal Enfield Bullet and enjoy the long term satisfaction than a short term pleasure.
By on 28-03-2011
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

By on 04-08-2011
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..
By on 09-08-2011
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.....

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..

By on 23-09-2011

By on 23-09-2011
what is the top speed of this bike that it can reach reply fast
By on 08-10-2011
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!
By on 13-10-2011
I am a Ninja owner, but i will be giving my reviews without getting baised. Well as far as technical spec are concerned,
33Bhp at a much lower rpm 8k, 4 valve/cyln, Liquid-Cooled, 22nm, FI.
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.

I want to sale my comet excellent condition contact 9831777040
By on 30-10-2011
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.?
By on 06-11-2011
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.....!!

By on 08-01-2012
Dudes ninja is a good bike but it does not have such a great look . it simelarly looks like karisma zmr and it just has a single disk in front. comparing to hyosung the engine power may be less then ninja but hyosung has a great look and multi disk at front.. it simelarly looks like 1000cc bikes HOW EVER WE NEED THIS TYPE OF BIKE TO IMPRESS GIRLS.
