Korean super bike manufacturer Hyosung is all set to launch a sportier, more powerful version of the GT650R, the GT650N. The new bike which is expected to be launched on October 13th is will be assembled in India as a CKD and is expected to be priced around Rs.4.5 lakhs.
Hyosung GT650N has the same 650cc V-Twin engine as found in the GT650R. However it does not have fairings and the engine cover to make it look meaner. The engine is capable of churning out 82bhp. The reduced weight also helps in increasing performance.
The GT650N joins Hyosung's two other super bikes, the GT650R and the ST7. The GT650N will be assembled at Pune at Garware's manufacturing plant. The company is planning to start local assembly of its super bikes to reduce prices. The Korean super bike manufacturer is facing stiff competition from other international brands such as Harley Davidson and Kawasaki.
The GT650N will have several features which include dual front disk brakes, single rear disk brake, six-speed wet clutch gearbox, 17 inch alloy wheels. The fuel tank capacity is 17 litres.
