  • VERY VERY Confused - Ninja 250r or Hyosung GT650

    Hey fellas,

    I AM NOT INTERESTED IN KAWAK 650

    I ve been pretty confused for a while now. Please help me out!~


    Recently I ve been to Garaware and check out Hyosung GT560 - Which looks like a beast compared to Ninja 250.

    Size:Hyosung
    I guess I will go with Hyosung :- cuz it is bigger and suits me nice (I am 6 ft).

    Style : Hyosung/Kawak

    Both looks brilliant:- Ofcourse cant compare both segments . I think since Hyosung is 650 cc and is huge :- probably i ll go with Hyosung.

    Stance : Hyosung is very aggressive and inclined compared to 250 and I definitely go with Hyosung.

    Brand :- Kawak
    Sound :- Hyosung
    Price :- Kawak

    back of my mind says :- instead spending 3 lac on 250 cc if i could afford 5 - I d get 650cc. along with that the luxury or riding a middle weight ofcours a HEADTURNER on Indian roads and not to mention about the sound.

    As a company I dont know how far can I trust Hyosung , I have no clue of the support and other issues :- What if they shut their India process? And the resale Value is pretty bad compared to 250.

    MY ULTIMATE AIM IS TO UPGRADE TO A Lt BIKE in 2-3 years .


    Please help me to pick one, please note that I am not comparing these 2 :- I want to kno which one is a good option.


    Many thanks

      Why are you comparing ninja 250 with Hyosung GT 650 as both are way different and again if you see from all aspects, i wanna ask you do you have experiences in higher cc bikes if no than i would recommend the ninja 250R.

        If money is never thought for you go for the Hoysung It will be like your training ground for the upcoming liters.

        If money matters, however you are going to upgrade settle with the quater liter!

          Thanks buddy :-

          I am not comparing them 2, I dont kno which one to go far...

          I do not have forehand experience riding 400 cc above in India :- I did bit of riding on n off when i was away from India.

          To sum up, If I get started with 650 - I d still need to learn the skills...

          The problem is , I feel odd to pay 3 lac when the actually value of Ninja outside India is around $3000 ish - Which is under 2 lac..

          And On Hyosung :- They look better and cooler on road while compared with them 250's

              Transitioning from a 250 to a liter presents its own share of troubles.

                Where is the confusion my friend???

                Migration from 250cc to 1000cc+ will not be as comfortable as from 650 cc to 1000cc+

                  hey prad if you have experience of 400 than i would think Gt650R or ninja 650 R are good options for you, but since you ruled out the big ninja than Gt650 is only left out.

                  Ride safe.

                      If you are considering the practicality of using a sub-super bike.. then in terms of daily usage and ease in driving through traffic, a Ninja 250 cc is better. Plus don't underestimate this baby green demon... i had the same reservations till i rode one and was completely shocked by its performance and the way it handles and the million questions you are asked everytime you park it or you are waiting in a signal.

                      So the Smug Value, Performance, Easy maintenance and the awesome performance, baby Ninja will suit you well.

                      Unless price is no bar, Ninja 250 will fill your need for speed and will put a biiig smile on your face every time you downshift and let the parallel twins scream to the red line letting all the posers have a taste of the dust.. this baby is capable of hitting speeds of 150 -170kmph plus you always have the option of enhancing its performance courtesy after market slip on performance exhaust or programmable ECUs.

                      Cheers

                        If your target is to grow up to litre class, then 650 is the one to go for.. And you have already ridden 400CC so getting on a 650 will be smooth.. and GT650R is very much drivable in the city due to V-twin providing decent torque at reasonable RPMs. And who knows, after having a 650, you are satisfied and won't ever feel a need to get a new liter class (at least in near future). but with 250, you will definitely have a constant urge to upgrade very soon..

                        Cheers

                          Little Curious! Could you please share the reason behind your disinterest in the bigger K? I personally felt its the better 650 of the two.

                            GT is fully faired and posture is more inclined compared to Kawak! Kawak is more on the touring side i believe while GT is a screamer.

                              What about the after sales support in GT? are they reliable?
