DSK Hyosung has done great by introducing the GT250.It was amazing to see a beauty on road with that bright red paint job roaring between the traffic. I just loved the dual front disc brakes.

And, with this news, i am just holding my breath to see more Hyo babies on road.. :P

if hyosung can bring this fully faired bike within the price of 55K to 60K...it would be tough for others

Our decade(s) old passion itself costs more than 55k today. If hyosung can price it less than 90k, it will become a big hit.

I think the price point will be close to 1.5 lakhs. That may attract some buyers, not all.
