DSK Hyosung has launched the latest version of its GT250R in India at a price tag of ₹2, 76,000 (ex-showroom Pune).

The new avatar of the Hyosung's 'Bog Boy' will be offered in three colour variants in the domestic market - Red Titanium, White Titanium and Black Titanium - each of which will be available in three tone shade.

On the mechanical front, the new cruiser Hyosung GT250R facelift packs the same oil-cooled, 249 cc, four-stroke, V-twin, DOHC, fuel injected engine, which can pump in a maximum power output of 29.20 PS and peak torque of 22.07 Nm. Mated to 5-speed manual transmission, the new bike gets 300 mm dual-disc brakes at the front and a 230 mm disc brake at the rear.

The bike carries advanced futuristic styling and sporty design and will be available in India from First April through the company's 36 showrooms across the country.

"Popularly known as 'The Big Boy,' GT250R has always received an exceptional response from the super biking community in India. We are very dynamic as an organization and have always adapted ourselves as per the changing customer profile, preferences and purchase decisions. Over the years, we have tracked this behaviour and incorporated elements of customer feedback in this New GT250 R," said Shirish Kulkarni, Chairman, DSK Hyosung.
