Entry-level sportbike from Thailand, the GPX Demon GR200R has make its way to Japan signalling the brand plans to expand its exposure to a wider market.
- GPX has expanded its reach to the Japanese market with the introduction of the 2023 Demon GR200R.
- The 200cc sportsbike is equipped with modern features including an adjustable rear monoshock by YSS.
GPX is a Thailand-based motorcycle manufacturer that is popular not just locally but also throughout South East Asia including Malaysia.
Although most of its components, including engines are sources from China, the assembly process is taken place in its Thailand facility.
Currently, GPX offers a wide range of models including maxi-scooters, retro-style cafe racers and streetbikes.
However, the Demon GR200R is the sportiest model available from GPX’s portfolio. Available at JPY539,000, the Demon GR200R is a basic yet capable entry-level sportbike that features front and rear disc, inverted front fork and a preload-adjustable rear monoshock from YSS.
The 2023 model year gets a new full-colour digital LCD display and revised graphics.
Powering the GR200R is a 198cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 4-valve engine that makes 19hp and 17.6Nm of torque.
The GPX Demon GR200R is suspended by a steel trellis frame that uses the engine as a stressed member. Therefore, the centre of gravity remains low and ensure a better handling on the road.
Thanks to the seven-step rear suspension adjustment by YSS, riders can fine-tune the bike’s suspension to their liking.
According to reports, GPX is already accepting pre-orders for the GR200R with deliveries expected to commence early 2023.
