New Hyosung GT650?

Well, it's a different headlight...

IGNORE the 'Kasinski' name on the tank, this is the bike we know as the Hyosung GT650 – but it seems that it's gained a new face for 2012.

While the existing Hyosung-branded GT650 sold in the UK currently still uses a traditional, round headlight, the Brazilian version – seen here in 2012 form and with under the Kasinski brand that Hyosung uses in that market – has gained a much more modern look.

Aside from the light there are no apparent changes either mechanically or cosmetically, but the new face is undeniably more distinctive even if we'd struggle to call it 'stylish' or 'beautiful'.

No word yet on whether the same changes will be applied to European market GT650s, but it seems pretty likely.
