Last year Hyosung surprised with the presentation a sporty model of the GD250N Hyosung also known as Exiv R, a naked of 250 cc which has meant a step forward in the image of the Korean firm.
It was easy to foresee the next step, the arrival of the sports version with bodywork of which inherits its chassis, engine and part cycle. Hyosung GD250R-Exiv is called and it has already performed in some markets.
In this way, the Hyosung GD 250R will become a good choice for novice pilots bound by the A2 card as in the case of the naked one of the points in favour of the GD250R-Evix Hyosung is its design rather more contemporary than the of the GT and its exhaust system, differential to the 1199 Ducati Panigale. In addition to this point in favor for a bike aimed at a young audience also enjoy on the role of benefits for the city and surrounding area enough. It is equipped with a motor monoclindrico of 249 cc, liquid-cooled and fuel injection yielding 28 HP at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 25 Nm at 7,000 RPM. It is associated with a 6-speed gearbox and 160 kg weight kerb predicts a bike essentially light.
The part cycle not at odds, with an upside down fork 37 mm, rear shock with five pre-load settings, brake 300 mm, and 4-piston front disc and an 11 litre fuel tank. One model more to add to the growing market of 250 cc bikes, all of this by the influence of the Asian markets and tighter budget of European motorists.
This sporty little motor is anchored to a chassis very simple tubular perimeter, with a wheelbase compact, of just 1360 mm. The seat height is slightly higher than in the naked model, 810 mm, while declared dry weight is 138 pounds against 144 kilos of his sister without fairing.
Of the brake delantaera is responsible for a conventional clip of four pistons biting a single 300 mm disc, while back we found a 2-piston caliper associated with a 230 mm disc In principle, and unless Hyosung surprised us, won’t have ABS. Tires measure also varies: 110/70-17 front and 150/60-17 back.
The new Hyosung GD 250R should reach the Spanish market in the spring of 2015. Its price is unknown, although it should not be far from the 3.299 euros which costs the naked Exiv GD 250N, now in promotion for aprox. Euros 2.999.
