Know more about Hyosung
Hyosung Motors Co. Ltd is a subsidiary of Hyosung Group of Industries, South Korea. The group was founded in 1966 while motorcycle division became active in 1978. They are known for their chemical, mechanical and construction industry expertise while significant share can also be found in the IT industry.
Their first step was assembly of Suzuki sourced designs under their own branding in South Korea. The parent brand has sold this division multiple times and therefore, ownership credentials have changed once in 2007 and then in 2014. Hyosung was once an effective brand among limited number of Indian superbikes of last decade.
Comet was the most popular model listed under Hyosung international lineup. It comes in both superbike and sportbike variants and offers engines varying between 125cc and 650cc. Indian market once had a long list of products from Hyosung while they have reduced the number significantly because of declining sales and popularity.
Their partnership with DSK didn’t work as expected as most promotional events from DSK are directed to the Benelli brand in India. Hyosung has showcased and even launched (internationally) a new generation of single cylinder products. Unfortunately, Indian market got some existing bikes discontinued and never got any of the new ones.
Hyosung GT650R is a full faired superbike with 647cc, water cooled engine. It is good for 72.68 BHP at 9000 rpm and 60.9 Nm at 7500 rpm. The values are not bad at all but limited reach of their dealerships never helped it get the deserving sales.
Also, design language of GT650R is decade old and still, it commands an equally huge price tag as extraordinary products like Ninja 650.It weighs 215 kg and thus, packs a lot extra weight than popular segment rivals. The same design can also be bought with GT250R.
