The 300 cc v-twin cruiser from the Korean motorcycle brand will make its Europe debut, but so far, there is no news of it being launched in India.
Korean motorcycle brand Hyosung has announced a 300 cc v-twin cruiser, for the European market. Called the Hyosung GV 300 S Bobber, the new bike is powered by a 300 cc v-twin engine which puts out around 30 bhp, and weighs around 172 kg. With a seat height of just 710 mm, the Bobber 300 will be perfect for beginners, with little or no riding experience, primarily A2 licence holders in Europe to make a dash around town or gain some motorcycle experience before graduating to bigger machines. The Bobber 300 is priced at 4,990 Euros in France (around ₹ 4 lakh).
The engine, a 60-degree, liquid-cooled v-twin, is a four-valve, SOHC unit, with 296 cc displacement, and puts out 30 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 25.6 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. Coupled with a 6-speed gearbox, 172 kg dry weight and small wheels, the Hyosung GV 300 S Bobber seems accessible with not too intimidating performance for beginners. A low saddle height also makes it easy, even for newbie riders and beginners alike.
The styling is like a typical American cruiser motorcycle, although the GV 300 S Bobber wears a blacked out looks, with blacked out engine, blacked out wheels, and a black colour scheme as well. The dashboard is a simple affair, with an analogue rev counter and a small digital screen showing the fuel gauge, speedometer and odometer readings. The fuel tank has a capacity of 12.5 litres, enough for the urban runaround, and a 300 cc powerplant is a good enough engine displacement for beginners. So far though, there’s no word on the GV 300 S Bobber being introduced in India anytime soon.
