After being trumped by Bajaj-Kawasaki on pricing for the Ninja 650R, pitted against their GT650R, Hyosung have gone back to the war room and redrawn some maps. The company plans to get back into contention in the 650cc market with the launch of a cheaper variant of the GT650. The naked version of the fully faired GT650R, namely GT650N will be launched in an event at Mumbai today. In all probability, Hyosung will undercut the Ninja650R by some margin. Expect the price to be in the region of Rs 4 to 4.2 lakh, though no official statement has been made by the Korean bikemaer in this regard yet. We’re absolutely loving this carnage in the 650cc segment as ultimately it’s the enthusiast who’s finally getting to smile.
As you would expect, we would be there at the launch and will bring to you the pricing, images and other announcements from Hyosung deferred Live from the launch event. So stay tuned.
