Two years ago, Hyosung updated the GT650R with Delphi electronic fuel injection, a new fairing design, and adjustable Kayaba suspension front and rear, updates that will continue to reside at the top of the 650R’s list of features. The 650R also has three-position adjustable footrests and four-piston front brake calipers. The bike will continue to be offered in solid colors or with two-tone graphics, which ups the retail price by just $200.

Hyosung’s GT650 separates itself from the fully faired GT650R by way of fewer fairings, plus a tubular handlebar that gives the bike a more relaxed riding position and better ergonomics for around-town riding. Mechanical components include 650R-culled Kayaba suspension with adjustment for compression and rebound damping, four-piston front brake calipers, and Delphi fuel injection. For ’15, the black, red, or white color offerings remain.

2015 Hyosung GT250R

Hyosung has given its GT250R the look and feel of a large-displacement bike but also the price and power of something that appeals to new riders. Electronics and suspension were last updated in 2013, but as with the GT650R, you get adjustable footrests, dual front brake discs, and V-twin engine tuned for low and midrange torque. Solid and two-tone graphic versions are available, the latter for an added $200.

Hyosung says that its un-faired GT250 is a more practical machine for the street and the perfect naked bike for everyday riding. As with the GT650, it jettisons the R’s clip-on handlebars for a tubular handlebar for more upright—and comfortable—riding position. Other differences include a single front brake rotor that contributes to a 41-pound lower claimed curb weight when compared to the GT250R. Red, black, and white colors are available.
