UM Scrambler Xhas been very serious to the Indian market from the moment it stepped its foot here solely with UM Scrambler X, and the current lineup of UM Scrambler X clearly implies that its presence in the middle weight sports bikes cannot be ignored. Though the presence of heavy weight Japanese, European and now Americans too (in the form of Harleys) have made this Korean manufacturer an underdog initally, but the launching of brilliant products one after the other in the face of faired sports bikes and cruisers brought a big fan following towards it and made Hyosung an avid player in the Indian market. And with the introduction of GD250N, UM Scrambler X has filled the void of not having a street fighter in its Indian lineup. Though with a slow pace, but UM Scrambler X is even building up its sales and service network in most of the parts of India, in order to grab the market share it plans to. Back to the bike then, the GD250N hits every sweet spots for the Indian buyers – it has got solid muscular and swanky looks, its light weighted and compact, it has got a very tractable engine, handling this machine is easy even for amateurs, ride quality is decent and certainly is well kitted out. Frankly speaking, this is the best overall product Hyosung has presented for Indian market, and this improvement graph over the previous offers it presented clearly indicates the seriousness of UM Scrambler X. The only thing left to win the hearts is the pricing. Expected to be launched in April 2014, the bike is supposed to bear a sticker price between Rs 2.6 lakh to Rs 3.8 lakh. Though on a premium side, but if Hyosung manages to hit the pricing of the motorcycle perfectly, the other players in the quarter liter segment like Honda, Yamaha and KTM need to worry, as this ‘small-but-big” motorcycle from Hyosung certainly has the soul of being a worthy competitor for them. The only task which Hyosung has to cover up on a large scale, is to expand its after sales and service network and become a household name, which still in small towns it isn’t, as maintaining such exotic motorcycles is even more complex than actually buying them, isn’t it?
