Hyosung GD250N spotted at EICMA

Sharply-styled 250 from Korea

KOREAN firm Hyosung will bring their new GD250N to Europe.

The single-cylinder four-stroke liquid cooled 249cc engine produces a claimed 28.5bhp, has a six-speed gearbox and is Euro3 compliant. It feautres upside-down front forks, 17-inch wheels, has a 790mm seat height and weighs just 150kg wet.

Its sharp styling looks like it has been inspired by other European models, like KTM's Duke. The GD250N enters the growing small-capacity market, fighting it out with the likes of Honda's CBR300R, KTM's Duke 200, Kawasaki's Ninja 300 and the Daelim VJF 250.

It comes with a two-year unlimited mileage warranty and is available in white, blue red and black.
