SAGMart Reviews on Hyosung GT250R ABS
Hyosung GT250R is a massive full fairing bike. The quarter-litre sports offering means to attract those who seek for pose value. The on-road presence of the bike is appealing which appears shared from the elder sibling the GT650R. Other than the body panels, the GT250R also shares prominent underpinnings like the twin disc brakes up front and an effective, two-stage projector headlamp from the GT650R. It gets an outdated though legible semi-digital instrument console, decent feel palm grips and crisp switchgear albeit lacks in the finish and smooth similar to the Japanese competition.

Power and mileage:
The GT250R packs a four-stroke, air-and-oil-cooled V-twin engine. It uses short stroke with DOHC which deploys four valves per cylinder. The engine is tuned to deliver 28bhp at 10,000rpm along with a peak torque of 2.2kgm at 8,000rpm. All the generated power is channelled to the rear wheel via a mated five-speed gearbox. The GT’s gearbox which works in one-down, four-up pattern shifts smartly. Besides equipped with an electronic fuel injection system, the GT250R feels dull initial power delivery. In order to get the power punch from the power plant, one has to keep reviving bike above 6000rpm considered as a boiling point for the GT250R’s powertrain.

Riding and Handling;
The riding position on the GT250R is more focused with a sculpted fuel tank and short clips-on handlebar. However, in terms of handling, the bike’s steering is not that light and sharp as compared to its competition. The ride quality on the other hand somewhere lacks with soft suspension setup. However, on broken city roads it feels less bothersome on low speeds. But the similar thing makes it fall short of its sports bike image. While attacking corners, the GT250R lacks precise handling on the flip side the bike offers good straight-line-stability on highways at high speeds.
in terms of safety, the GT250R supplies effective braking with 300mm twin disc brakes at the front and single-disc at the rear. As per the test results, the GT250R stops from 80kmph to standstill in an adequate 31.32 meters in the presence of ABS. However, there is a scope of improvisation at the front brake lever.
The Hyosung GT250R is the best bike introduced so far by the automaker in India. Its big-bike looks could certainly make someone buy this bike although there is a number of departments where the GT250R has the scope of improvement over its quarter litre rivals. The motorcycle is great in steady straight-line dynamics but that’s not enough to put it over another bike. Its low to mid-range performance is also among tops the lengthy list of negatives. The biggest thorn in the GT’s side is its high price tag around INR 2.5 lakh.
