The South Korean two wheeler manufacturer has announced officially that they have dissolved the partnership with Garware, which is India’s leading Sun film making company. Hyosung in partnership with Garware has launched three variants in the market. Hyosung is now partnered with DSK motors. DSK is one of the leading car dealers in Western India. DSK has large chain of Toyota showrooms in this region and is well known for its customer service. DSK will be managing the process of building Hyosung bikes at their facility center in Wai, in Maharashtra. DSK will be taking over all the manufacturing process of Garware and will be focused on the launch of Hyosung GT250R on Indian roads. Hyosung GT250R will be competing with Honda and Kawasaki who have their variants with similar engine displacements. If we look at Hyosung GT250R pictures, this new South Korean breed looks very impressive and has the potential to captivate hearts of young generation in the subcontinent.
Apart from Hyosung GT250R, DSK is planning to introduce new variants in Indian market. DSK will be manufacturing Hyosung bikes using Completely Knocked Down [CKD] process. By using this process DSK will gain low import duty cost, which will be directly reflected on the retail cost of Hyosung bikes. DSK will be paying only 10% of import duty costs because of CKD process on the other hand, if they had used Completely Build Unit procedure, then DSK would have been paying 75% import duty to the Indian government.
