Hyosung showcased its new product line up at the 2015 EICMA motorcycle show including the new GT300R and the updated GT650R. While the Korean two-wheeler maker did not reveal any specific details about the India launch time frame, the folks at motoring portal Bike Advice report that the GT duo would be launched by mid 2016. Shirish Kulkarni, chairman of DSK Motowheels confirmed that the GT duo should arrive in Indian showrooms by May-June 2016. He added that the GT300R and GT650R are yet to reach the production ready stage.
The GT300R will replace the GT250R and will be propelled by a 275cc V-twin engine. The twin motor will deliver 28 PS of power at 10,500 rpm and 23.5 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. The motorcycle will also come equipped with a dual channel ABS as standard and an updated design. The updated refreshed GT650R, on the other hand, gets a 647cc V-twin motor delivering 74.4 PS of power and 54.4 Nm of torque.
There is no word on the pricing front but the new motorcycles, with their added list of features, are expected to carry a slightly premium price tag. As aforementioned, both motorcycles will reach Indian shores by mid 2016. We would bring you all the updates about the new GT300R and GT650R as and when they arrive.
