2006 Hyosung GT650 – Machinations

Submitted by Neil on Monday, 14 November 2005

Nipping through the corners of the St-Eustache, reminds me of how effectively … bike bars can a ride down into a The Hyosung GT650 complies to such ministrations, making it an and quicker ride than the fully faired offerings, OWD sampled during our marathon session.  The romp is set to the tune of a rotty sounding engine that offers a smooth that could pass for a larger than the 647cc

Fueled by twin 39mm carbs, with response as good as fuel injection, the power plant turns out a 79hp at 9000 RPM.  5hp more than the Suzuki claimed output to which the derivative will always be Torque also gets a bit of a up 6.9kg-m at 7600rpm to the Suzuki’s 6.5 at 7200rpm.

Burning off speed on the track’s inner field, I slip a gear. The GT650 voices complaint, backfiring on deceleration – the of meeting emissions standards, remedied by a slight modification to the (quick, to the Bat-Search-Engine Robin).  the soundtrack is the gearbox’s feel; the is light, velvety and precise.

into the sweeper I gear upwards, tall ratios the GT650 a long legged and make good use of the engine’s This also leaves the GT less rev-happy than the SV resulting in a smoother feel. I the soft rev-limiter nudging me to shift at 11,000 RPM.

  and flexible seem the keywords of the day for the engine, with it offering best in the 5000-8000RPM range.

We pass the grandstands and power the chicane, clocking past the tent at 110kph.  National Hyosung’s Canadian distributor, has out of it’s way to slow the track in an effort to keep overzealous and dealers from wadding any of the preproduction bikes into constituent components.

Interestingly, components include fully-adjustable upside-down forks, offering of travel and good compliance. soak-up the bumps well at the distal end of the track, though sprung, they do suffer a bit of under braking.  The rear feels a bit too soft, but we didn’t the opportunity to play with the adjustment in an attempt to refine the

  While it proved suitable for St-Eustache offers, we suspect on rough roads it may be wanting for

The GT650 isn’t as quick to in as the flighty SV650 Naked; the suspension is part of that That the GT650 weighs a 180kg versus the SV650’s 165kg is another variable in the formula.  The steel frame may be the factor as likely it carries a bit flex than the Suzuki’s member.  Running through the you may come out thinking less of the – don’t!

  The result of a bit more and chassis flex is a planted through the corners and handling comes out less twitchy and user friendly to the new rider.

though the sweeper, the bus stop, and the hairpins, gives me a good to exercise the brakes.  The twin-pistoned is a bit wan in terms of stopping power as bite down on the 300mm disks.  It’s not crisp but rather feels like the of a collective effort from the building to a soft slowing Dropping speed this way is the climax of a Meryl Streep in comparison to other more oriented offerings.

Through the inside field and I have a chance to realize proper lean, flicking the through the tight serpentine.  The pegs are well up and away the asphalt despite my best The bike is proper twin and the seat, while comfortable, is hung-off of.  Though the is short, this perch is to the arse-aching cruelty of the ’05 SV 650 Naked, with a height of 780mm it proves tight seating for the among us.

  We heel tight and low around the final turn.

The allure of the GT650 is that I’ve well my allocated laps for the session – by a half hour and an uncounted of orbits.  Despite the aspirations of “a beginners bike”, the GT650 is a satisfying ride.  Finally I to relinquish my mount, a ball of from heavy leathers, heat, and staggering humidity.

  The final word on the Hyosung is not all the talk of a cheaper Suzuki, the warrantee or versatile engine…  not a word at all really…  it is the post grin I’m wearing.
