With more fine-tuning and the addition of fuel injection, we’ve made the decision even easier for 250cc sportbike and cruiser buyers.”
Other functional and cosmetic upgrades include a redesigned tail section on GT models and a strengthened frame on the GV. All Hyosung 250cc motorcycles will continue to feature fuel gauges.

Hyosung Gets Injected (Australian Press Release)
South Korea has been doing more than scanning the northern horizon for missiles in recent months: it’s been busy preparing for the launch of its own missiles. The Hyosung motorcycle range has been given a major facelift and now features fuel-injection across the entire 250cc and 650cc V-twin 2010 model range.
The popular GV250 and GV650 Aquila cruisers retain their signature styling and robust, powerful engines, but now have the added benefit of EFI. The EFI system provides seamless power throughout the rev range and smooth idling from cold.
The GT250 naked sports commuter and the GT250R sports model also feature EFI. Completely restyled with aggressive new lines, LED stop/tail-lamp and clear indicator lenses, they are set to regain their place at the top of the 250cc sales charts.
EFI also takes a front row seat on the three-model 650cc GT range. The GT650 naked, the half-faired GT650S sport tourer and the GT650R sport all feature the new styling changes, plus improved braking with four-piston callipers gripping 300mm semi-floating discs on all three models.
Great news for learner riders too. The 250cc models are automatically learner approved, but so too are all four 650cc models. The LAMS approved 650cc EFI models now deliver 40kw, up from 25kw on previous models. The non-LAMS 650cc versions pump out a healthy 59kw.
“This is great timing for the Hyosung range. As Australia pulls out of its economic dip, we have a fresh new range for riders both new and experienced,” said Hyosung Australia Brand Manager Simon Gloyne. “In 2006 and 2007 the Hyosung GT250R was the top selling 250cc road bike in Australia because of its massive package of features and performance for such a low price. Now that package has fresh styling and fuel injection across the entire range, we are aiming for the number one spot again.”
The new styling and technical updates are additional to an already value packed range with all models featuring USD forks (except GV250), grunty V-twin engines and now EFI.
The EFI models go on sale this month, with the following recommended price (before statutory and delivery charges):
GT650 naked $7990
GT650S sport tourer $8590
LAMS is not available in WA. It is available in all other states now and Queensland from July 1, 2009.
