Hyosung Mirage 250 Review
With quite a heavy look and a design that inspires confidence in the ride, the Hyosung Mirage 250 is a cruiser that is most likely to receive high levels of praise. This cruiser will work to create a new segment in the Indian market, and it will be the foundation on which the Hyosung-Kinetic partnership in India will flourish. All the eggs have been kept in one basket and the brand’s revival in India depends on the sales reports of the Hyosung Mirage 250.
The Hyosung Mirage 250 will replace the Aquila 250 from the lineup of the company, and will come with the latest compliance of the emission norms. The bike is powered by a 250cc 75º V-Twin cylinder DOHC petrol engine that will allow it to have a maximum power of 25.8 hp at 9000 rpm and a peak torque of 21.7 Nm at 7000 rpm. This engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and will follow the BS4 emission norms in India. This means that the Mirage 250 will have a higher torque than the Aquila 250, ensuring that the power is supplied to the engine in an earlier rev range. The large 15-liter fuel tank will give the bike a long range of about 400 kilometers, ensuring that it gives the rider an average mileage of around 45 kmpl.
The suspension duties on the Mirage 250 are handled by telescopic forks at the front and dual shock absorbers at the rear. It has a 19-inch wheel at the front covered with a 110/90-19 tire and a 16-inch wheel at the rear covered with a 150/80-16 tire, both of which are significantly larger than those on the Aquila 250. There are disc brakes at both ends of the bike, and it will be launched with ABS to keep up with the safety norms in India. The ride height of the bike is quite comfortable as well, ensuring that riders of all heights and builds can commute on it with ease.
