Hyosung Comet GT250

Date: November 4th 2004

The in Yellow

After a long I finally managed to get a proper ride of the black Hyosung 250. It was worth the wait as I had the to myself for a full 45 mins it in the unfamiliar (to me) area’s of Andheri and road.

This was a blessing in as riding in that terrible in the middle of the day on unfamiliar roads an unfamiliar bike, was sure to any shortcomings with the bike.

I on every possible type of From long clear to test its acceleration and top end, to traffic.

Power: 7/10 the speedo was not connected so I had no idea speeds I reached. My first were that it’s not too I didn’t feel any kick accelerating, and the pick-up in till 6000rpm was not impressive at all. this was deceiving, as taking off a signal with a guy on a pulsar 180 to drag with me, I left him in the he was a speck in the rear view in a few seconds. So I guess it should be ok.

I must add though that in traffic, I was riding mainly in 1st and 2nd just to stay in the top end where the is. However, its pretty tractable enough torque to allow you to in traffic in 2nd if you don’t mind the of initial acceleration.

Engine: The engine is extremely smooth. at 3000rpm or its 10,500rpm redline, I feel any vibrations. It sounded refined as well and had a nice growl to it.

An aftermarket end exhaust will this sound great.

6.5/10 The first thing I was the lever was very stiff. a new bike, I guess it needs to be run in for it to up. However, the shift from 1st to 2nd *is

The throw is too long and you frequently end up in when riding in traffic. from that, it was a bit tricky to get neutral at signals, reminded me of my However, this felt it would smoothen out with

Handling: 9/10 This is the part of the bike. In heavy you can ride it like you would a cutting in and out of traffic with It makes this a great bike- On the higher speed on cement roads, the bike its line really well. It confidence.

It also eats up bad roads well. My pulsar felt it had no suspension after this

Braking: 7/10 The rear in traffic is great. However the was not very good. High braking had the forks chattering and was not very good.

However it did straight on braking, but I would preferred twin discs in

Fit Finish: 4/10 The paint is so-so. I feel the Fazer has a better paint finish the comet. The switches, dials and look really cheap and out of on this bike.

The welds on the looked shabby as well.

8/10 Well, everyone has the comet now. I rode a comet, which blends in Not many people noticed it. I if you want to turn heads, the or red colours are the ones to go for.

I personally like black After my ride, I stood watching others go for short some with pillions. Its where I really got a good

The bike, even with 2 on it, seems large. Defiantly like a 400 or 600. It looks in motion-

Price: 7/10 on road Mumbai. Although is a lot of money, I feel its not unreasonable. bike costs about pounds (Rs.2,34,000) in the UK, about in Australia.

So, the Indian price of 1.8 not seem unreasonable, especially you think of the duty we have to

Overall: 8/10 This is perfect for India. It has adequate is really easy to ride in and has good looks. What can you ask for. Well, better fit would be nice for one.

Better brakes are another needed.

However, I have a that if this bike called a “Honda” instead of there would be a lot more and a lot less people complaining its price- This bike is for who want to ride, not show off as all that.

Comparison to a Honda This seems the best to compare the Comet with. now ridden both these *let me say this. The Honda is way of the Comet in terms of power- you really cannot beat the of an inline 4…amazing.

The Honda is as to ride in the city, however its clearance is not much and you can seriously the exhaust if you are not careful.

Price wise, a good will set you back 2.8 – 3.2 lakhs for a 5 year old bike. This is the Comet comes out ahead. For 1 less, you get a brand new bike, paperwork and a loan to buy it with.

As as I love the Honda, I feel it more sense to buy a Comet at point in time.
