Hyosung GD250R may soon be a reality for the Indian market. As the partnership of DSK and Hyosung came to an end, Kinetic has successfully revived the brand with GT250 RC and Aquila Pro in the country. The sales for Hyosung were earlier halted as operations were shifting into the Kinetic Motoroyale dealerships. The twin-cylinder GT250RC is priced much higher in comparison to this lightweight yet equally agile model, leaving the brand with scope of bringing the Honda CBR250R rival in the coming months. Kinetic retails Hyosung with other premium brands from their Motoroyale dealership network.

Five years back, Hyosung brought the GD250N to Auto Expo and showcased the same to gather user interest. After the show, it suddenly disappeared from the Indian plans and company started selling updated versions of the same old GT and Aquila series bikes. Soon before the switch of the partner, Hyosung reduced its official lineup to Aquila Pro, Aquila 250, GT250R, and GT650R, out of which two were given an ABS upgrade for better placement among the rivals. Still, sales have never been a strong part of the Hyosung group. If launched soon, GD250R will be their first mass-market, single cylinder bike.

Theoretically, the Hyosung GD250R is a powerful sportbike with 28 Bhp of maximum power and 25 Nm of torque. The engine is quite powerful in comparison to other 250cc bikes. Not just the engine, the overall weight is also in the favour of performance at just 138 kg. The design helps is get closer in competition to Apache RR 310, featuring similar twin headlight design and USD forks for the premium feel. If Hyosung is successful in placing the same under the ABS-equipped version of CBR250R, the chances of success will go up by a large margin. The best placing point would be around INR 1.80 lakh (ex-showroom).

Kinetic has confirmed that Hyosung Mirage 250 will launch in India around March 2019. Also known by the name Aquila 250 DR, it was launched in Spain early this year for 4,345 Euros (INR 3.30 lakh approx). The next generation cruiser looks extremely impressive as no other brand in India has something even close to this around the expected price point. The high pricing exists as this cruiser comes equipped with a V-Twin 250cc engine. The four valve per cylinder layout makes it good for 25.8 HP at 9000 rpm and 21.7 Nm at 7000 rpm. The motorcycle retains its fuel injection, electric starter and five-speed gearbox from India spec Aquila 250.

As the previous version was good for 140+ kph of top speed, expecting speeds around 150 kph would not be a big thing from Aquila 250. The all-new design language is a clear departure from the old, classic cruiser design. Here you get modern styling with almost negligible fender size. The Indian version (Aquila 250) earlier came with huge fenders, 1000+ cc styling, and least powerful engine. Hyosung now offers 15-liter fuel carrying capacity, all-new headlight and LED position lights. Hyosung’s 710mm of seat height makes this cruiser perfect for riders of every possible built and height. It even comes with a large chrome exhaust.

Indian market had four products from Hyosung earlier, all of which were held during the change in partnership from DSK to Kinetic. The brand now retails two products in India and both are available at Motoroyale dealerships from Kinetic. Hyosung will offer an extra wide handlebar, front, and rear disc brake and 19-inch front tire for the Mirage. The rear comes with an equally impressive 150/80-16 tire for perfect cruiser feel. It is currently on offer in Black and Green shade only. Pricing for the new Hyosung Mirage is expected to stay around INR 3.25 lakh (ex-showroom). The brand will also launch the much-awaited GD250R in India but, through a phased strategy.

Fans who were always waiting for an update from Hyosung will feel delighted to know that GT250RC and Aquila Pro are now available with dual channel ABS as standard. The duo has launched through the Kinetic Motoroyale platform for INR 3.39 lakh and INR 5.55 lakh respectively. Also, Aquila Pro now feels more in competition with both Kawasaki Vulcan S and Harley Davidson Street 750. The government has made it mandatory for new products that will launch after April 2018 to bring ABS as standard while existing brand names have one extra year for the introduction.

The international lineup from Hyosung still has an attractive list of products on sale. Hyosung GT250RC is powered by an oil-cooled, 249cc motor, producing 28 BHP at 10,000 rpm and 22.07 Nm at 8,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. It weighs quite high at 188 kg and carries a 17-liter fuel tank. Aquila Pro, on the other hand, is a capable product with a powerful water-cooled, 647cc V-Twin engine producing 74 BHP at 9000 rpm and 62.1 Nm at 7500 rpm. It weighs 240 kg and brings an effective wheelbase of 1670mm. Hyosung offers ZR spec 120mm and 180mm tires for the front and rear respectively.

Hyosung had almost vanished from many major cities of India and the move of collaboration with Kinetic can revive the brand up to some extent. The non-ABS variants of GT250R & Aquila Pro were earlier available for INR 3 lakh and INR 5.26 lakh respectively. The difference in GT250RC and older GT250R is visible at the front. The new version uses a single front disc whereas it earlier had two disc brakes in action. Also, the brake is now petal type instead of the solid disc.

Hyosung has partnered the Kinetic Group after DSK MotoWheels filed for bankruptcy and left the fans of Korean brand in a state of confusion. Still, the brand was lucky enough to get another partner in time and join the Motoroyale bandwagon for better exposure than the DSK dealerships.

Benelli also went through the same phase and found Mahavir Group as their new partner for Indian operations. Kinetic Group first partnered Hyosung in 2003 but, the Mahindra’s asset acquiring step left the brand empty-handed in 2008. They made an entry with Garware Motors later but could not survive the increasing competition in India.

After leaving DSK MotoWheels, the brand went back to Kinetic as offering service to the existing 7000+ customers is equally important at present. Hyosung bikes will join the Motoroyale brands like MV Agusta, Norton and SWM, offering them a better and bigger customer base than their personal struggle.

Also, the existing Hyosung dealerships can be turned into Motoroyale dealerships, bringing more exposure to all other partner brands in other regions of India. The current lineup of Hyosung bikes includes GT250R, Aquila 250, GT650R and Aquila Pro. They discontinued the street-fighter series for lower than usual sales number.

The launch of ABS-equipped GT250R and Aquila Pro confirmed that Hyosung has no intentions of leaving Indian market in coming years. The most powerful motorcycle on offer is Aquila Pro, producing 74 Bhp and 62.1 Nm from its 647cc engine.

The top speed for this cruiser is rated at 195 kph while 16-liter fuel tank offers extensive riding range. Buyers looking for a more rational design could earlier go for ST7 but, the model was discontinued last year. GT250R comes with ABS, powerful 28BHP engine and iconic superbike design. The sporty model was earlier sold by the name Comet 250 in India.

Hyosung GT650R Metallic Dark Blue Edition: DSK Hyosung may be one lost name when compared to other superbike brands in India but Gears & Fillets brought life back into one motorcycle that Indians loved a lot. They have finished a Hyosung GT650R in Glass Metallic Dark Blue and Glass Carbon Fiber shade.

This resulting machine looks dominating from each angle, refreshing the owner’s desire to ride something as impressive as this GT650R. Majority of the bodywork is now seen under this interesting Blue skin, reflecting its stance in a better manner than ever.

Details are worth praising as one could see reflective carbon fiber finish on exhaust pipe of the motorcycle. Visible frame section was left black for perfect contrast with reflective body parts. One typical above the side fairing was blackened to achieve exclusivity from all other available GT650’s till date.

Under that glass carbon fiber finish, one can spot heat insulating black tape over the original bronze finished exhaust pipe. Rear grab rails were removed from the motorcycle to create a sharp tail end for typical SuperSport look.

Front visor is now completely black while 3D Hyosung as well as GTR logos are present on its side fairing as well as fuel tank. Hyosung GT650R is powered by a 647cc, twin cylinder engine producing 72.68 BHP at 9000 rpm and 60.9 Nm at 7500 rpm. The bike weighs 215 kg and claims 210 kmph of top speed. The engine comes mated to 6-speed gearbox. It is presently available in India for INR 4.79 lakh (ex-showroom).

Hyosung Aquila 250 Limited Edition Launched @ INR 2.94 lakh

Hyosung Aquila 250 has been recently launched with 3 Limited Edition shades at INR 2.94 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The motorcycle will get 100 units for all of the three shades, making it quite exclusive in the Indian cruiser segment. The regular model currently retails for INR 2.84 lakh. Hyosung is even offering zero percent interest when the buyers chooses finance as an option. The limited edition colors are named Carbon Black, Desert Brown and Matt Green for the Aquila 250.

DSK Hyosung seems to offer the same as stock clearance strategy as all the bikes with BS3 compatible engines would not be allowed to stay on sale in India after 31 March 2017. The only difference that can be spotted in regular and special edition model is the selection of shades. The motorcycle is powered by a 249 cc, V-Twin engine producing 26.21 BHP at 9500 rpm and 21.37 Nm at 7000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox on the limited edition model.

The motorcycle is known for excellent looks as it carries the big bike feel in its body. The same comes at performance compensation as the motorcycle weighs quite high at 179 kg. Hyosung offers the same old design but uses these fresh shades to make it more appealing than ever. Aquila 250 comes with a single front disc brake, making it the least effective when seen from value for money point of view. The price tag even makes it close to the performance spec Yamaha R3 in India.
