Hyosung GD250N Overview
The last two years have seen tremendous growth in mania for naked bikes in India. Manufacturers like Bajaj and KTM have already set their foot in this segment and now Hyosung is ready to make its presence feel with the GD250N in the same class. The GD250N is a proper naked motor motorcycle that has to be positioned against the likes of KTM Duke 200 and Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS in the Indian market. The model made its first public debut in India at the 2014 Auto Expo where we were impressed with its overall fit and finish and build quality.
Hyosung GD 250N Expected Engine and Power
Interestingly, the GD250N looks a genuine street fighter that also boasts a busy look at the same time. The fiber and body panels are restricted to minimal and more metal elements pronounce an overall tough appeal in itself. Unlike the GT250R, the GD250N will be powered by a single pot,250cc, water cooled motor that will churn out between 25-30 BHP of power. Drive will be transmitted to rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox while stopping power will come from disc brake at both wheels.
Hyosung GD 250N Expected Feature and Date
Hyosung will bring the GD250N in via CKD (completely knock-down unit) route and will assemble it at its Pune plant. However, the GD250N seems promising in most of the aspects but factors like its pricing and after-sales service could hinder it from attracting prospective buyers in our market. The naked gamine is supposed to get launched around mid 2018.
