2006 Hyosung GT250 – Inconspicuous Consumpt

The recipe for a bike is pretty simple It needs enough of an engine to get you up to speeds, handling that’s enough to get you through the corners trauma, and brakes that what traffic throws at you – a bus – all sandwiched in by a capable chassis to it all together.  The Hyosung GT250 all the requirements of this recipe, but a little bit more.

So here I am, at RPM I’m well into the 11,000 red line, and expecting the rev limiter to cut me off at any The special sauce here is the of smooth revs, the tiny twin’s enthusiastic demeanor and feel which leaves of “cheap” and “Korean” out of mind.  If you looking for cheese, then along.

  There’s a joy here, pure essence of riding, no The GT250 is divested of any of the fatuous attributes or lifestyle marketing wrapping other marks.  a beginner’s bike, most but the little GT is also good and frisky enough to make an experienced rider grin.

True, the track sees me upwards through the ratios to keep the 28hp (claimed at the air-oil cooled twin in its power developing range 7500RPM.  That’s the fun of a small though; thrashing it soundly to it go.  The pull, 15ft.lbs, inconsistent to the meager displacement, enough oomph here to and even have a few giggles.

it comes to lever dancing the 5-gear transmission, the shifts are smooth and easy, though not feeling.  This is beginner’s and it need not make any apologies for soft or comfortable.  The cable-actuated has a relatively light feel, a thing given the bike’s output.  A bit of clutch-slipping is needed to the engine up to its power range and off the line with any swiftness.

  light feel will pay off in where this will be a maneuver.

Progress up to 100kph is though, and the name of the game is speed up through the corners.  such tactics let you saddle up to the top end with a bit of work.  The relatively low of the GT250 may not be a bad thing; the stomping of latest crop of 600cc being to a new rider what the of a shotgun is to a toddler.

Casting back to my first a superannuated and ill cared for Maxim I’d have taken the GT-250 any the Maxim was temperamental and the throttle the first day’s riding, in damage to a curb, a rose a fence and myself.  By contrast, the throttle control is linear and measured, completely without or surprise – a sign of user-friendly

  That alone would been enough of an argument to me saving my first bike for an offering such as this had I back then what I do By offering up a two-year warranty for Hyosung appears confident in the solid-feeling mechanicals. None of the manufacturers stand by their for this long… yet.

merits come into of course.  Handling-wise the little 250 is with a chassis suspiciously to the much more expensive GS500 wrapping the twin.  The itself carries about the mass as a gnat, and has the same especially with the wide bars providing leverage and the interpretation of tire widths front, 150/70 rear) things nimble.

  Then there are the inverted up front, which look Showa.  Even un-dialed-in on the they did the duty over and ruts, once again but still capable.  It’s reasonably tight and clean.

  Even for the urban commuter the are more than enough to emergency stops in traffic drama.

The upright seating is actually quite spacious for a small and compact, but not tight or This is thanks to three-position pegs available on the Canadian and a seat height of 795mm in.)  that is vaguely to the vertically challenged.  Originally had intended this chassis to both the 250 and 650cc engines for its a plan since abandoned so 250 may proceed in comfort.

  However, a lowering kit might be for those in the small ladies market.  The seated posture you great visibility both of domain and the gauges.  These are with the GT-650 and offer a display of fuel level, and RPM, with clean lettering against a white

  The mirrors are well positioned and with no concessions to design in the way of visibility.

It’s all held by tidy welds and well-finished It’s good fit and finish, a lot of the switchgear and components looking Suzuki.  The GT250 is all very thought out and straightforward.  There is a bit of under the pillion seat for and several bungee points to the commuting crowd happy.

  As a bike one could easily be with the GT-250 for a couple or more.

Wrapping up my second set of on the GT 250, the first set was fun enough to a second, and again I pull up The bike is fun and carries with it extra spirit I wasn’t Part of that spirit may be the a tune box balances outflow of the at lower RPMs.  The idea is to torque in these ranges, and it but the result is a bigger than sound – think bastard child of a buzz saw and a Ducati.

  It sounds, well… nice.

It me with the thought of a GT 250 Cup or similar series; it could be hugely running near stock – a contest that comes to skill and the ability to hold speed in the turns.  That may be the track here talking.

  on the road practical consideration of may drive this bike’s as much as anything else; in to its lower cost of entry, “compact” and “tight” are words could be used to describe the needed for insurance for the GT250 in Provinces. Based on the displacement they play, smaller is better.

The Hyosung GT250 is a cheap, basic bike and it’s ok, and I wasn’t expecting more that…  so I was surprised to be confronted so much fun and feel.  New riders, commuters and motorcycle “charm” now have a solid choice in an niche of the Canadian motorcycle – one that doesn’t break the with cost of entry, or the of insurance.  It’s a cracking little bike – for cheap.
