“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Hyosung GD250R Spotted in India

The first ever spy shots of the Hyosung GD 250R from India shared with us by an anonymous reader who doesn’t wish to be named. GD250R is one of the three bikes confirmed to be launched by DSK Hyosung in India this year. 
Back at the Auto Expo in 2014, the manufacturer had showcased its naked version, called as the GD 250N. While the company already has a presence in the quarter litre segment with their GT250R, this time round they are trying to bring the fight closer to the Dukes with a single cylinder motor.
The GD250R sports Hyosung’s only single cylinder engine producing 28 bhp of maximum power and 25 Nm of peak torque, all this at a kerb weight of only 138 kgs! The new GD series are the most modern motorcycles by Hyosung and should be better built with more zest than the twin cylinder GTs. Since these are single cylinders, we also expect them to be reasonably cheaper.

In terms of design, it does have the puffs and the muscle to lure the common big-bike-look lovers. It gets dual-headlamps with projectors, under-belly exhaust, split seats, a large visor and a prominent white visible mono-shock. The company and brand are hidden via tapes and those petal disc brakes add to the appeal.
The spotting of GD250R confirms that testing of the motorcycle is on and it may either come before the naked or together with its sibling. October this year is the touted month for their launch. Both the GD sibings are expected to be assembled here.
Unlike the GT250R, DSK will have to price these GDs, specially the GD250R competitively against the existing single cylinder 250ccs. An ex-showroom price tag of around Rs 1.7-1.8 Lakhs is what we expect which should bring them the volumes.

Apart from this, Hyosung is working on revamping their entire lineup and will have new models within a few years from now.
