This is the Hyosung GD450 – a new naked roadster from the Korean bike maker that’s going to be available for 2016.

Powered by a liquid-cooled single-cylinder, DOHC 449cc motor, the bike kicks out 50bhp @ 7,500rpm and 47.7Nm of torque @ 7,000rpm.


It gets a six-speed gearbox, a 96mm bore and a compression ratio of 11.8:1.

The preload-adjustable, off-set rear suspension single unit echoes the styling touches of the Er6 range from Kawasaki, up front the 41mm upside down forks are mated to a single 300mm petal disc with four-pot radial caliper.

17-inch wheels get a 120-section front tyre and 160-section at the back.


No exact date for when the GD450 will hit dealerships, or the price of the bike when it does – but in terms of something fun and funky coming (that we hope isn’t expensive) then this has really got our interest.









Hyosung 450 appears. Funky. 50bhp, lots of torque, single-cylinder and cheap (hopefully)
