Korean firm Hyosung is, believe it or not, 30 years old next year and to celebrate it's revealed this limited-edition version of its 650cc Aquila cruiser.

The V-Rod-esque Aqulia uses Hyosung's own fuel-injected, 650cc V-twin, making an impressive 80bhp.

That power goes through a five-speed gearbox and belt drive to the rear wheel.

The anniversary model is marked out by its black paint and red frame and wheels.

Matthew Gilder of importers and distributors, E. P. Barrus said: "Most people probably think that Hyosung only started making bikes a few years ago.

"This model highlights the fact that Hyosung has 30 years of motorcycle design and manufacturing experience in Korea and it’s an increasingly serious make. New bikes next year demonstrate the company’s ambitions."

Prices will be announced early next year, when the limited-edition machine goes on sale - but compared to its rivals, it's sure to be cheap.
