Garware has got Hyosung back to India, and in its innings, the company has launched two weight motorcycles. Both the are locally assembled through CKD at Garware Motors’s facility in near Pune. The Hyosung will attract those who are for a 600cc sports bike, the Hyosung ST7 will attract who want a stunning looking

But looks are not the only parameter a will look for when he down six big ones, so its time to out if you should put down the money for the ST7. We rode the Hyosung ST7 a mix of highway and city and have the right here for you.

– The first thing you notice the Hyosung ST7 is how big and low it is! The long length and handlebars make the Hyosung ST7 a from every angle it is The headlights are round and the front are huge. The Hyosung ST7 has plenty of on it which screams premium to of us in India.

The paint quality is short of exceptional. Our test was black in colour but we prefer the colour (the third available on the ST7 is white), which absolutely stunning. Not that the ST7 not look good in black, it in any colour and we wonder how will a edition look! The engine is coated with chrome the radiator shroud, cam covers and

Furthermore the dual silencers are covered with chrome, look absolutely stunning, they tend to heat

The rear view mirrors are well placed and offer rear vision. The seats are comfortable and generous for both the and pillion. However the pillion get grab rails and has to pray for life when the Hyosung ST7 going.

The seats have red which shows the attention to which ST Motors has put into the of the ST7. The belt guard is in chrome as well and the long exhaust cover more 50% of the bike’s length. The rear of the Hyosung continues the impressive with a huge 170 section tyre and LED tail lights.

The mud sharply tapers off, like the front mud guard and the are mounted on a bar, again like the front. The alloy looks wicked. The 13-spokes beautiful detailing with and silver colours.

When we the Hyosung ST7 we immediately realised the use of magnets on the body. Because ever we went, people get attracted to the machine. Some ask which bike, while would ask ‘Is that a HD?’ took U-turns and stopped mid way to out the ST7.

On the highway, one Chevrolet Tavera was fast, trying to overtake us, we let him go by to see him slow down and wait for us to next to him. He waved his and asked which bike. girls couldn’t miss the ST7 and wanted to click their with the bike.

There is no then, when it comes to design and styling the Hyosung ST7 full marks.

Instrument and Switch Gear – The 17-liter features the chrome framed cluster. The speedometer is calibrated all the way to 220 and once you switch on the ignition, the goes all the way to 220 kmph and comes (video above). A small display is present right the speedometer which has readings for the fuel level and twin meters.

Below the speedometer and display, there are lights include the engine and FI malfunction, and indicator lights.

The Hyosung ST7 the normal engine start engine kill switch and lights on the right. While on the there is the horn, indicator high-low beam and pass There is no button to switch on the as they are always on by default.

is Hyosung’s implementation of day time lights but don’t go well us Indians. Where ever we the bike, people would us that we have our headlights on!

Performance and Gearbox – Reach out to the positioned key and start the Hyosung ST7 and it wakes you up with its growl. The cc, V-twin monster is all of a sudden to unleash its 57.66 BHP of power and 57 Nm of on the tarmac. The 8-valve motor is by 90 degrees and features dual head camshafts.

Garware has not touched the bike and the figures quote as as per ARAI. These are 5 BHP and 5 Nm less than what quotes internationally. The torque is lower too at 6000 RPM against RPM for the international version. This the Hyosung ST7 does not have to be at very high revs to moving quickly.

However and torque are being produced at higher RPMs than is seen on cruiser motorcycles. The … motor is responsible for characteristic.

Power is transferred to the wheel by a belt drive and the injection makes the start up of the ST7 a breeze. The clutch is slightly to operate but the gearbox is smooth good feel. Our test would make a slight when first gear was but we feel the newness of the machine read 500 kms) was responsible for it and the should disappear after service.

Hyosung ST7

Overall gearshift action is easy and smooth and you get used to the ST7 in 20 kms of riding it.

The V-twin is smooth and cleanly throughout the power Twist the throttle in first and you will see 80 kmph on the speedo. past 5500 RPM, the from the ST7 is prominent.

Power in quick and strong when you hard and you find your grabbing the handle bars to ensure you and the ST7 move in the same and not in the opposite! The torque rush the ST7 is simply mind blowing, the is slightly jerky (fuel to blame?). However all the fun comes late in the power band and is what you would expect a cruiser.

We are certainly not complaining and you can cruise at 140 kmph without a up.

The Hyosung ST7 reaches 100 kmph in a 6.5 seconds and will easily past 180 kmph. However the play is too long that you to continuously correct the input to a particular speed. For instance, if you to engage full throttle, you have to lift your as one twist will only 80% of the throttle.

To move it to the maximum you twist twice! The engine is decent but not class leading. But we really nothing to complain the performance of the Hyosung ST7, definitely has the capability to excite the to a large extent.

Ride, Handling and Braking – The ST7 weighs 244 kgs, which light by any standard but doesn’t heavy. The double-cradle steel coupled to the fantastic weight makes the ST7 a joy to ride. However expect racing bike cornering on this machine as its not to do that. The wide handlebars and rake of the forks ensure a light steering.

Riding the ST7 is effortless and you never realize riding a 700cc machine ofcourse you look around to people ogle at you). The is extremely comfortable and very too and you won’t feel any types of on your derriere post a ride.

Ride quality is but slightly harsh on our kind of The 41 mm front forks easily all the bumps but when you encounter roads wile cornering, is a little tendency of deflection. The Shinko tyres do end up playing and lack grip at high specially in wet conditions. The ST7 feels planted till 120 kmph but as builds up so does wind and the rider’s confidence starts

The four-piston caliper have bite but the tyres tend to up under very heavy The front brake play can be according to the preference of the rider. the handling and ride are very and the experience of riding the Hyosung ST7 is enjoyable.

[xrr label= rating=4/5 ]

Conclusion – The Hyosung ST7 makes of sense when we factor in its looks and good performance. The looks stunning and attracts where ever you take it. importantly though, the ST7 gives you the of a sports bike (to a certain and the comfort of a cruiser. The power is than enough for our roads and you hardly see yourself utilizing 80% of what this V-twin has to

If you are the kind who loves touring the Hyosung ST7 fits the bill However, on the other hand if you to use your motorcycle on the weekends, the ST7 still manage to please Couple this with the Garware Motors is putting service of their bikes and all of a you realize that this starts making alot of
