Welcome Aquila Classics to the Hyosung Family

Brian Connor - Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Hyosung have introduced two new 'Aquila Classic' cruisers to their already extensive range of motorbikes.

The Hyosung GV650C - Aquila Classic (developed especially for the Australian market) and the Hyosung GV700C - Aquila Classic boast a completely new chassis featuring a very relaxed riding position combined with traditional classic styling.

Hyosung GV650C - Aquila Classic

This smaller engined version of the 700C was developed especially for the Australian market to be LAMS compliant, powered by a 650cc 47kW version of Hyosungs 90° V-twin engine. At 47kW this makes the GV650C Aquila Classic the most powerful LAMS bike in the country!

Hyosung GV700C - Aquila Classic

The all new GV700C Aquila Classic has a 680cc longer stroke version of Hyosungs 90° V-twin engine producing 46kW. This engine has been designed to provide more grunt at lower revs for a more relaxed and authentic cruiser riding experience.

As this engine is 680cc it is only LAMS approved in ACT.

How to choose your first motorbike

Brian Connor - Wednesday, March 02, 2011

So you are ready to purchase your first bike, but where do you start?

The advantages of buying a new bike are:

  • Warranty
  • Peace of mind
  • Choice of colour
  • Never been dropped

So which model of Hyosung is best for you?

One of the first decisions to be made is 250cc or 650cc?

250cc = smaller, lighter, easier to maneuver.

650cc = slightly larger, heavier, but more powerful.

Your size?  Body weight and height are a consideration.

Your level of experience is also a factor.

Which model? 

Less experienced people are better off on a bike that has higher handlebars.

Price – what can you afford?

Where are you going to ride?  

Longer trips are better on a 650. 

Short distances and commuting, maybe the 250 is right for you. 

But . . . both can do both.
