Any feedback on Hyosung Comet 250?

HYOSUNG MOTORS

Hyosung is a Korean company; you-d seen or test-driven one at a Kinetic Dealer. Hyosung-s been building motorcycles since 1978.

If you want something more powerful the Hyosung 250.

OVERSEAS IMPRESSIONS

250 range motorbikes are entry level most countries outside India. Sadly, it is considered first-timer syndrome..in USA/overseas. Surprise, it-s unfair and true.

HYOSUNG – COMPARE WITH OTHERS

The general idea is – Korean motorbikes are not as good as TVS, Honda or Yamaha. After you-ve read this, written based on my personal

MOTIVATION FOR THIS REVIEW – HYOSUNG Comet 250

This review on the Hyosung Comet 250 2007 model is based on a test ride from a local Hyosung dealer in Australia. I-ve been impressed – ended up purchasing a Hyosung Comet 650 for a slightly higher price than the 250. Been enjoying riding this motorbike for some time now.

Surprise, it-s PURE BIKING PLEASURE!

TEST DRIVING A HYSOUNG 250cc

After due diligence on various motorbikes, I decided to focus on motorbikes below 750cc in terms of engine sizes.

It was a cool afternoon. I went to the Hyosung dealership and chose to take a used 250 naked/normal blue motorbike for a spin. The road speed limit was 80kmph.

I joyfully rode away; quickly sped away into 70 in the 3rd gear; launched away on the highway into 110 km/hour range in higher gears. The acceleration was happily pleasing, the ride balanced and overall effect sportive. I felt I was a driving a bigger, new technology bike.

I did not feel the absence of Fuel Injection. I could feel its power could go beyond the posted highway speed limit of 110 km/hour easily. You could feel the quality build, not heavy for its 150kilos or so, did not feel light either, but the right quality for an enjoyable ride.

Surprise, it-s brought a smile to my face.

Then, it started drizzling. Still, I maintained the speed; the Hysoung 250 Comet provided a stable, planted feel, good road grip, though I had doubts. The bike held its own, with a Honda CB 600 older bike rider pulling up alongside; showing respect.

Imagine this: the feeling would be similar to a teenager-s thrill on his first ride on Karizma, Pulsar220 or a Yamaha150. The 250cc Hyosung Comet is a revelation – after being told to expect that 250 is entry level, for college kids/first timers. Same goes for my 650cc with higher riding experiences.

Surprise, it-s no slouch. Surprise, Riding is believing.

VERDICT . HYOSUNG IS NO PUSHOVER

The 250 Hyosung Comet is the market leader in its class. I understand this is so in Australia Surprise, it-s complete value for money!

NEGATIVES

-no Honda for brand-reliability-image.

-no Fuel Injection

-cheap!

– Surprise, it-s Korean!

FOR INDIA: My 2 cents!

Provide LOW COST twin-engine motorbikes with low, mid-range power and long range pleasure driving suited to Indians, Indian roads it COULD BE THE BIGGEST HIT.

Carbs Do the job

Power 27HP for 250; 33 HP restricted for 650; regular carbs 81HP

Torque Twin engines provide rush of adrenalin and thrill

Valves World class 8 valves

Vibrations Can be ignored if any, negligible

Weight Perfect balance at 80 Kmph feels planted, stable

Ride Smooth, Commuter, power if needed to ride with the big boys

Shock Adjustable comes with stiff option for handling

Feel Like a larger 500cc or 60cc bike, sporty, grips road well even when wet

Gears Smooth but not class best

Reliability Honda is the last word; Hyosung-s better than many others

Value for $ Internationally; yes in India it-s different, yaar!

Fuel efficiency With my style I can get 30, because I get 20-23 on my 650 Comet, which I eventually got

from another dealership.

Handling Good enough for most folks

Wt. distribut. Weight distributed well. Very Well engineered bike coming from Korea.

Pick up Better than most Indian bikes, I have not driven thenew pulsars but it-s darn good engine

smoothness: I thought the Hero Honda Karizma was great for its smoothness. Drive the


250 Hyosung it-s sheer riding pleasure

Brakes Discs all round; one extra in front for 650 large compared to 150ccs

Styling World Class, better than any motorbike bike in this class

Remarks BEST SELLING entry level 250cc naked/sports motorbikes in Australia

Ergonomics Average/Above Average

Seating Sporty

Forks Great – upside down; world class

Fuel Inj. Coming soon is the rumor..no word from Hysoung yet

1000cc Expected from Hyosung

Hyosung Please launch a 200cc with the same body for 75K and reward the indian bike lover-s

patience!

Price 2 lakh rupees on road for a 250cc is just too much price wise when u can a220cc with

20HP for half its price and fuel injected, world classcalled Bajaj Pulsar220.
