Race Hyosung GTR125 – Brake, Wheels and Suspension
The GTR125 really shines in one sector – not only it has the body and looks of a masculine sports bike, but it also has all the parts required to assist it. The GTR125 has upside down suspension in the front and mono-shock suspension in the rear – the inverted front suspension not only looks great but should also provide great experience in cornering and braking.
The wheels are alloy wheels, with tubeless tyres in both wheels. Another thing this bike stands out is in the sizes of tyres – the front wheel has a 110/70 -17 tyre and the rear wheel has a 150/70 -17 tyre. These wide tyres will definitely provide better traction and grip and therefore it also looks really muscular with fat tyres.
The front brake is a 300mm disc brake with 2 piston caliper. The rear brake is 230mm disc brake with 2 piston caliper. With both of these high end brakes combined with the wide tyres, this bike should provide an astonishing braking experience for the rider.
