Coming in $200 less than its cruiser stablemate, the Hyosung GT250R shares the 250cc V-Twin from the cruiser and places it in a naked-bike chassis. The result is a very inexpensive motorcycle suited more towards the taller or larger beginner. Its proportions are more in line with bigger bikes, though its little engine belies its actual size. It’s a decent motorcycle, and for the price, you really can’t go wrong.
