Hyosung asserts that the 2013 model-year updates—Delphi electronic fuel injection, new fairing design, and Kayaba suspension—are enough to keep GT650R customers satisfied for at least another year as the bike goes unchanged for 2014. Solid color options (shown here) will retail for $6,399, whereas the two-tone graphic models will sell for $6,599.

Hyosung GT650

The GT650 is the naked version of Hyosung's GT650R and continues to sport the same mechanical components as its fully faired sibling but with a less-aggressive riding position for more comfort around town. A black, red, or white color option is available, and with those fewer body panels comes a slightly smaller price tag.

Engine: A-C 8V 249 V-Twin Seat Height: 32.7 in. Wheelbase: 56.5 in.

In a recent lightweight sportbike comparison test we wrote that, “the Hyosung's V-twin engine works quite well in curvy sections, with better low-end power than the Honda while carrying further and higher up top.” With the 2014 GT250R you also get adjustable rearsets, dual front disc brakes, and the look and feel of a bigger-displacement bike.

Engine: A-C 8V 249 V-Twin Seat Height: 32.7 in. Wheelbase: 56.5 in.

Like the GT650, Hyosung's GT250 is the naked version of its similarly displaced sibling. Hardware is mostly the same, with the only differences being a single disc front brake and upright handlebar that'll increase around-town comfort. Curb weight is also a claimed 41 pounds less on the GT250 than on the R, an important point for beginner riders to consider.
