And the review is superb!!

Can this frame be called as Delta Frame?
Interestingly the GF series from the Kinetic-Hyosung also had similar frames.
The engine is air and oil cooled. It's the oil cooler you see there.
This frame isn't a Delta frame. But sort of a perimeter type frame.

Default Re: Hyosung/Kinetic COMET - First Ride & Pics

I am planning on buying this bike in about 5/6 months?
Can somebody please help me out with this bike. Also, if someone does own one, please let me know about the bike.

The Comet GT-250 as of now isn't currently available off the shelf & you have to scour around to buy yourself a used example.

Rumors do suggest of a possible launch in coming few months. The fit & finish as well as reliability shall remain a notch below its Japanese counterpart/s.

The bike which shall be launched would be an updated version as well, so expect improvements at places where it lacked, though tank rust & few other niggles are still reported for the GT-650R.

I am really sorry to have not specified it. I do intend on buying a used one.
I am in love with this bike, and since im do not intend to buy a new bike as my running is rather low, i think it would be pointless for me to consider a new one, be it an updated version or now.
Thank you anyway Sheel for informing me about the launch. Will work something out, and if im ready to buy a new one, i will definitely wait for it!

Its absolutely okay

Helping you in your search a bit http://classifieds.team-bhp.com/sear...qs_button=Find

But please go ahead & negotiate at your own risk, though I believe the GT-250 would be priced somewhere around 1.75 - 2L if it comes new as of today. When launched it was priced at 1.7, but back then, it had no competition of any sort whatsoever. Wishing you the very best
