Hyosung GD250R spotted in India, the launch has been delayed of the naked versions
Hyosung GD250R is a promising motorcycle from the DSK MotoWheels. Reason why is because DSK is almost there at the top of the leader board for selling premium motorcycles on the market today and wants to cash on an entry level sports bikes as well. The DSK plans to launch Benelli TNT25 as well, and hence it was showcased at the IBW in Goa this year. New spyshots of this brand new Hyosung GD250R have surfaced and it seems DSK has plans to launch it after showing to dealers and prospective buyers.
A trend which DSK follows with its products that it sells in its portfolio. Hyosung GD250R will get bulky styling with an aggressive front design. When it comes to mechanicals, the Hyosung GD250R will use a 249cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine tuned to produce 27.6 BHP of power at 9500 RPM and 24.1 Nm of torque at 7000 RPM. Power to the wheels will go through a 6-speed gearbox.
Suspension at the front are 37 mm USD forks at the front, while the rear suspension is offset located monoshock. Brakes equipment on paper is promising as it is a single disc, which is 300 mm, meanwhile a 230 mm disc brake is present at the rear. ABS is not present on this bike like the naked version Hyosung GD250R has a dry weight of 155 kgs.
Expect these bikes to compete against the Pulsar RS200, AS200, NS200 from Bajaj and KTM Duke and RC 200 as well. Pricing should be under the 2 lakhs and we expect it to be around Rs. 1.6 lakh mark on-road for Pune/Mumbai.
DSK MotoWheels is all set to rule the premium market with brands unknown to the rest of the world. The concentration of these brands in India can get them a good foot hold in the country by generating volumes, only if they manage to succeed in our price conscious competitive market.
