Hyosung GT 300 and GV 300 unveiled at EICMA, India launch confirmed
South Korean two wheeler maker Hyosung unveiled an array of new generation products at the ongoing EICMA 2015 in Milan, Italy and most of them would make it to India next fiscal through its local partner DSK Motowheels.
Bikewale reports that DSK-Hyosung is preparing for a massive product onslaught in the promising compact and medium displacement sportsbike segments in the country. The company is likely to revamp its entire Indian product portfolio by the end of next fiscal thanks to new and heavily refreshed products.
The publication says that the new Hyosung Aquila GV300 cruiser will kick start the proceedings. The GV250 replacement gets new styling which seems to have been inspired by the Indian Scout. Powering the compact cruiser is a 275 cc liquid-cooled V-Twin engine which generates 26.6 PS and 23.5 Nm of torque. Transmission is a 5-speed unit. The premium compact cruiser is expected to be priced around INR 3 lakhs and will come with ABS.
The second product would be the GV300’s supersport sibling, the GT300R (also unveiled at EICMA 2015). The sharp edged fully faired motorcycle is most likely to replace the GT250R. The GV300’s 275 cc V-Twin unit handles the propulsion duty.
The next iteration of the GT650R is also in the pipeline. The heavily refurbished supersports motorcycle shares the basic design elements with the GT300R. It continues to be powered by the same 74.5 PS 647 cc V-Twin engine but the kerb weight is claimed to have been reduced by 10 kg. The naked GD650N will also receive styling upgrades.
The most interesting of them all will probably be the production version of the GD450 street fighter concept that graced EICMA. The razor sharp naked bike is powered by a 50 PS 449 cc liquid-cooled engine that is mated to a 6-speed transmission.
The company is likely to complete its product onslaught with the launch of facelifted Aquila Pro (GV650) and ST7 premium cruisers.
