DSK Hyosung has rolled out the GT250 R LE (signature edition) with a price tag of Rs.2.97 lakh (ex-showroom Pune). Everything stays with regards to mechanicals. What’s new are the sporty graphics and styling in eye catching hurricane yellow. Every GT250R LE will have the names of their proud owners etched. The Signature edition, of which only 50 units will be manufactured, has been floated to mark the first anniversary of DSK Motowheels’ HY Ryders club.
The Limited edition “Big Boy” is powered by a V twin-cylinder and oil cooled 4-stroke engine mated to 6-speed transmission that produces a maximum power of 27.6 BHP at 10,000 rpm and peak torque of 22.07Nm at 8,000 rpm. The Motorbike can touch speeds up to 140 kmph. Other familiar features are the double disc front brakes, Electronic Fuel Injection, twin projector headlamps, upside down forks and adjustable rear seats. This one is the only bike in India with a Super Sports Riding position. With a fully faired heavy duty muscular body the GT250 R is the biggest bike in the 250cc segment. The GT250 R LE will be made available through select dealerships in the country. Branded merchandise is also being offered with the signature bike.
Speaking on the occasion of the launch Shirish Kulkarni, Chariman, DSK Motowheels who also unveiled the motorbike said-
“Driven by popular demand from our discerning customers, we decided to introduce this signature edition of the GT250R. What better way to introduce this faired beast than the 1st anniversary of our exclusive superbike club, the Hy-Ryders. We are overwhelmed by the support shown by the owners club, and are committed to delivering maximum value and excitement for them in the years to come.”
