Hyosung Exiv 250 has been spotted on the road probably for testing before going to be launched. The overall look of the bike is quite ‘edgy’ as of there is many edges of the bike’s body. The tank and the front shroud shows a cyber-like design with that sharp styling. On my first observation, it also looks a little bit like the KTM RC8 styling.
Rear suspension is handled by the monoshock system but at acute angle like the one as used in Kawasaki ER-6. This kind of rear monoshock setup are popular in naked bike category as it is exposed and shows the street-cred it is looking for. The exhaust system is the short and stubby type like the one we have seen in Yamaha XJ-6. This will give a good kind of style that naked bike should be. The chassis is unmistakenly Trellis Frame in the color white that complements the overall ‘purity’ looks of the bike.
What I like the most about this bike is the design of the wheel. It features 10-spoke star-like design that is nice, simple and just right for this kind of 250cc bike. Also interesting is the use of the petal brake disc plate that is commonly used by Kawasaki, that said to be better in terms of heat and water dissipation. Front and rear brakes are nicely handled by the brake disc system.
The meter cluster features all-digital system, but we have no idea what information does it display as it is turned off as shown in the picture above. Just by the way of how it looks in the picture, I think that is a nicely done meter as compared to the Naza Blade 250/650.
Rumors said that this bike will be launched next month. The original bike is the Hyosung Exiv 250, but I’m thinking the actual production name will be Naza Exiv 250 as per Naza Blade. Priced of this Naza Exiv 250 are said to be RM13-14k.
