The Korea-based S&T Motors Co. Ltd. (formerly Hyosung) has announced its 2009 GT650R, which will now be fitted with a fuel-injection system instead of the earlier carburetor. The bike’s DOHC, 8-valve, liquid-cooled, 647cc v-twin engine is being updated, and will now produce 80bhp and 67Nm of torque – an increase of around 9bhp and 9Nm of torque over the carbureted model.

The Hyosung GT650R, which weighs around 208 kilos, rides on 17-inch wheels, with 120/60 (front) and 160/60 (rear) ZR-rated tyres. The bike is fitted with a six-speed gearbox, adjustable monoshock at the back, USD fork, 300mm twin brake discs at the front (with radial-mount, four-piston calipers) and 230mm rear disc brake. The 2009 GT650R will be priced at around US$6,500.
