The 2015 EICMA is a grand stage for motorcycle makers throughout the world to either unveil/ showcase or launch motorcycles. Making use of this opportunity, the Hyosung GT300R was unveiled to the world in Milan.
The Hyosung GT300R will be the successor to the GT250R, which is actually a step up for Hyosung as Kawasaki did with the Ninja 300R.
Powering the Hyosung GT300R is a 275cc, V-Twin engine that produces 28bhp and 23Nm of torque. The engine comes paired to a 5-speed gearbox. Hyosung claim that the extra cubic capacity of the engine helps the GT300R go 30km/h faster than the existing GT250R.
On the features front, the Hyosung GT300R comes with disc brakes for the front and rear, 110 section front tyre and 150 section rear tyre, while both tyres are mounted on 17-inch wheels. The GT300R comes with a 15-litre fuel tank, inverted front forks, and a mono-shock at the rear.
The Hyosung GT300R could launch in India next year, with a price tag of around Rs. 3.8 lakh.
