Again, surprisingly good. Many assume cruisers don’t handle and although the Hyosung GV650 Aquila's certainly no sports bike, with decent usd forks and twin discs up front and a reasonable twin shock set-up at the rear, the GV650 Aquila manages to be both laid-back sumptious AND retain enough control to makes bends entertaining. Well, for a custom bike at least.
The Hyosung GV650 Aquila motor is essentially a copy of Suzuki’s excellent liquid-cooled V-twin from the SV650 – and a good choice it is, too. This mid-sized V-twin in the Hyosung GV650 Aquila is eager yet flexibile, responsive around town and yet thrilling and brisk at the top end, too. The gearbox is sweet, too. If it can match Suzuki’s own reliability record, Hyosung are onto a winner with the GV650 Aquila.
Still a little early in the day to say with the Hyosung GV650 Aquila. The oddly-named GV650 Aquila was launched onto the UK market in early 2006 and although no major problems have yet come to light (nor have they with the similarly powered roadster GT models), these are new products from a still largely unproven manufacturer.
At £4000+ new, the Hyosung GV650 Aquila isn’t actually any cheaper than Suzuki’s own SV650, wo it’s not actually the bargain many expect. That said, the Hyosung GV650 Aquila is well equipped and, in the middleweight cruiser class, is pretty well unique making it good value. Find a Hyosung GV650 Aquila for sale.
