There was a time when 600cc bikes were conspicuous by their absence in the Indian market. Then, came the Korean bike maker Hyosung in partnership with Indian firm Garware and changed the scenario for good. Soon, we had the Japs and the Italians planning to enter the market and we started having some good options in the segment. Soon, the Korean, which started the game, was seen losing out to newer and arguably much better competition. Now, in order to inject some freshness into the relatively dated offerings, Garware-Hyosung has come up with a limited edition version of the GT650N, the naked and better priced version of its 650cc sportsbike.
The GT650N comes with a 650cc, V-Twin motor producing some 72 Bhp-61 Nm of power output. The power is transmitted to rear wjeel through a six speed transmission.
The limited edition comes with a bright red frame and the tank and the rear panels get new graphics. The mags get pin striping and all these cost INR 15,000 over the standard model.
