2018 GV-300S V-Twin
« on: January 05, 2019, 06:56:05 AM »

Well I just found a Hyosung 2018 catalog that shows a 300cc V-Twin (295.5 actual). Not a bad looking retro.

Don't know if it will ever be bound for US.

I was kinda hoping we might see a new crank or barrels and pistons, but that looks like a completely different crank case.

Exhaust manifolds are interesting as well. See where they join? Rear mount turbo anyone?

Interesting, very very interesting. I've actually seen this bike before, and I even posted about it here on the forum, but, the one I posted was a 125, I never seen it as a 300. It's also not like the EICMA bikes where the 300's just had 275cc engines. It appears Hyosung are working surely but quietly.

ABS on the GV650, ABS and new wheels on the GT250R, and now this GV300S. There's also the GV250DR, I wonder if that's out as well.

Hopefully more good news to come!
