The Hyosung GT250R is all set for launch in June 2012 at an expected price above 2 lakh INR. This will be the second coming of the Hyosung 250 in India, the earlier one being the naked Hyosung Comet 250 introduced in association with Kinetic. Garware have also confirmed that the naked Hyosung GT250 will also be introduced later this year. The GT 250R will produce about 26.6 horses (27 PS) and feature a V-twin engine on a twin spar frame as seen on the GT 650R. Garware Hyosung also plan to introduce the GV650 cruiser with an estimated cost of 5 lakh INR, followed by the GV250 cruiser.

DSK Motowheels also announced that they are aiming for maximum localization of production in order to keep costs the competitive. The Hyosung GT250R will cost 2.75L ex-showroom Delhi and will be available in 3 colour options namely red-black, white-red and silver-red across 18 dealerships across India. An interesting announcement at the launch was that once the localization is complete, which DSK Motowheels intend to do in 18 months, the price of the GT250R could drop to as much as 1.5L ex-showroom.
