Hyosung GD250R single-cylinder fully faired motorcycle was spotted in India for the first time. Though DSK-Hyosung sells the twin-cylinder GT250R sportsbike in India, a bike with single cylinder motor could bring down the price tag significantly, thereby taking the fight straight towards the highly popular KTM RC200 and Honda CBR250R.
Essentially a fully faired version of Hyosung GD250N street fighter which was showcased at last year’s Delhi Auto Expo, GD250R derives its propulsive force from a single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor which is tuned to deliver 24.8 hp at 8,500 rpm and a healthy torque of 25 Nm at 7,000 rpm. Transmission is a 6-speed unit.
With a kerb weight of less than 140 kg, the fully faired quarter litre sportsbike should pack a decent punch.
Coming to aesthetics, Hyosung GD250R features twin projector headlamps, a tall windscreen, a side fairing which partially reveals the engine and red frame, a muscular fuel tank, an edgy tailpiece and an underbelly exhaust.
Hyosung is expected to launch GD250R and its naked sibling GD250N by October this year to take advantage of festive season. The locally assembled 250cc twins are estimated to have their prices ranging between 1.75 – 2.25 lakhs (ex-showroom). The affordable single-cylinder models are expected to boost the company’s sales volume in India.
