- Hyosung GV 300 S Bobber revealed
- Will be launched in France
- India operations suspended
Hyosung has unveiled a new motorcycle for the European market. It is called the GV 300 S Bobber that features some design elements of certain American motorcycle brand.
This motorcycle has been developed for riders who wants something easy and accessible but with a bit more power. With a seat height of just 710mm, the GV 300 S Bobber surely looks practical for everyday use. In fact, the A2 licence holders can make full use of this cruiser.
This bike is powered by a 300cc V-Twin engine that makes around 30bhp of power at 8500rpm and peak torque of 25.6Nm at 6000rpm. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox that transfers power to the rear wheel via a chain drive. The bike tips the scale at 172kgs, making it one of the lightest in the segment. This Hyosung has a retail price of 4990 Euros (approximately Rs 4 lakh).
Hyosung hasn’t been doing any business in India since the ABS norms kicked in. Plus, there are no official comments from the company in Korea if it plans to resume its India operations. If it manage to do that, then there’s some chance of this Bobber making its way to India.
