Hyosung GV250 Suzuki Motor
« on: June 05, 2018, 11:37:00 PM »

Hi all,
I have read some where I cant remember where that the Hyosung GV250 motor is a Suzuki motor that Suzuki used to get Hyosung to build for one of there there Suzuki motorcycles. Supposedly Suzuki sold the rights for the motor to Hyosung so that Hyosung could use it in there GV250 motorcycles.

If any of this is true does any body know what Suzuki model used this motor in one of there Suzuki motorcycles.

You are probably thinking of the GT650R , which is similar to the SV650 in some respects like parts interchangeability. Thats about as far as my knowledge goes for that, I believe the GT250 (and GV250) were hyosung's own creations.

Thanks for the input. Looks like it was not Suzuki. The links show a motor that is very close to the GV250 to look at. The heads are a bit different (spark plug hole)

and the alternator top timing hole is a bit different to the GV250 but all else is the same.

This engine in the pictures is supposed to be a Lifan 250cc Honda engine. I have found that a quiet a few of these smaller Japanese 250 v twin engines follow a similar pattern with just a few minor differences between the motorcycle brands. Probably Hyosung have just followed the pattern of the other makers and have added some small changes of there own. Whatever they have come up with a very good motor. I have ridden my 2010 GV250EI all summer long and have had not the slightest trouble at all.

I guess they are both Air cooled V-twins. But that's where the similarities end. Different cylinder angles, spark plug locations, carb arrangement/throttle body arrangement, and probably engine mount points too. Anything can be swapped with enough money, time and skill though.  ;)

Since they fixed the bottom end explosions, the 250 has become a quite reliable lump.

Hi Christianleon266

You are right totally different. Looks like Hyosung did make the motor for the GV250 them selves. I suppose that it just goes to prove that the South Korean's are as good as any body else when it comes to building a good engine. There Hyundai cars are good as well.

All they have to do now is make chrome that does not rust. That is the only problem that I have had with my motorcycle is the rust on the chrome. I have to keep polishing it off. It is such a good bike to ride that I am prepared to keep doing this and I may get some of the chrome bits black powder coated for next summer.

Yes I am very careful with my motor 65 MPH tops and so hoping to go for many more years to come. I do not want any explosions.

It was fixed quite early on. 2004-5ish I believe.

What I never understood about the Koreans, was why they continue to build shit.

They seem to start with shit and then when that fails they go well let's build a proper one, and off they go.

And 2 years later the next company does exactly the same thing.
