Hyosung launches GT250R in India priced at Rs 2.75 Lakh

Hyosung has launched the GT250R, it is priced at Rs 2.75 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The GT250R competes with the likes of the Ninja 250 and the Honda CBR250R.

DSK Hyosung, the newly formed partnership between South Korea’s S&T Motors and the Pune-based DSK Group to sell Hyosung-branded sports bikes, has set a target to sell 3,000 bikes during the rest of the current financial year. Hyosung, which had a partnership with the Garware Group till recently, sold over 600 bikes last year. “India is the most important market for S&T Motors now,” Justin Lee, head of S&T Motors’ global marketing team, told Autocar Professional.

The motorcycle weighs a portly 188 kilograms and in terms of size, it is much more substantial than both the Honda CBR250R and the Kawasaki Ninja 250R as the GT250R is essentially a GT650R with a 250cc engine. The motorcycle will be available at all 18 DSK-Hyosung(previously Garware-Hyosung) dealers across the country right from today, when bookings will officially open. Deliveries will begin in the next two weeks with the motorcycles reaching showrooms in the next 5 days. The 2012 Hyosung GT250R will be available in three twin tone colors; white-red, red-black and silver-red.

The company, which currently assembles the bikes in a facility acquired from Garware Motors, is in the process of acquiring land to set up a new plant. “We would like to purchase land in the Mumbai-Pune belt as it will be convenient to import kits through the JNPT port,” said Kulkarni.
