Hyosung is a premium motorcycle brand based in South Korea. The company first entered India in partnership with Kinetic Engineering, and their first products, the Comet GT250R and Aquila 250, turned out to be very successful initially. Unfortunately, this success did not last for long, and Hyosung had to exit the Indian market due to poor response and dwindling sales figures.
Hyosung returned to India in 2011, this time in a tie-up with Garware Motors. The company introduced two new 650cc bikes targeting the premium bike segment, the GT 650R sports bike and the ST7 cruiser. Currently Hyosung has partnered with the DSK Group, and has localised the assembly of its bikes. The company looks to get a good share of the premium segment which is currently dominated by Harley-Davidson and Kawasaki.
