Soul of a Cruiser, Heart of a Racer…
Combining the Cruiser and Racer in one motorcycle, the Low and Long trendy style of a Cruiser and the beauty of a sports motorcycle, the Hyosung Aquila GV650 Pro takes on the looks of an extreme performance machine…
Using highly reactive handling with an engine and frame that provides awesome feedback, the GV650P is the closest thing to a cruiser who thinks it’s a sports bike.
It will put a wide smile on your face every time you take it to the highways and outrun the more expensive cruiser offerings in the market.
It has the power to get your heart pumping all the way up to its redline, but can also soothe your senses cruising into the horizon on a lazy Sunday morning. No wonder it has been a best seller from Hyosung all over the world.
The Aquila Pro has a clear identity of its own. Hyosung has thrown up a feast on the GV650 Aquila Pro. The front fender bracket, headlight rings, the swooping dashboard, brake fluid reservoir, faux air scoops, engine covers, drive-belt guard, rear fender accents and that big barrel exhaust – everything is drenched in chrome. The Aquila Pro looks awesome with its black and chrome hues and turns a lot of heads too. The paint quality, chromed embellishments and the blacked out treatment are all in the supreme league of cruisers.
Hyosung GV650 Aquila Pro puts up an impressive show. The silver and brushed-aluminium combo-finished inverted front forks in addition to aiding performance lends great to the motorcycle. The three spoke alloy wheel design looks old school, the blacked out treatment and the triple disc rotor setup manages to distract your taste buds every time. The dashboard provides the necessary numbers and is information rich. The wide leather seat with a red stitched trim not only looks premium but offers the right amount of cushion.
The Hyosung GV650 Aquila Pro is powered by a Electronically Fuel Injected 647cc Water-Cooled 90ᴼ V-Twin, DOHC engine, cranking out max power of 72 bhp @ 9000 rpm with max torque of 61.4 nm @ 7250 rpm. The engine speed seems quite high for a cruiser motorcycle and there’s some history behind it as Hyosung started its operations way back in the 70’s as a sub-contracting engine manufacturer for Suzuki motorcycles. And thanks to the old Hyosung-Suzuki technical collaboration, the present v-twin motor on the Hyosung GV650 Aquila Pro shares similar architecture to a sports touring motorcycle’s engine.
Top speed of 195 kph can be put to a test and with this kind of brutal acceleration – one tends to be pushed way back into the seat. The Aquila Pro feels best as an all day 120 kph cruiser and can be taken to high speeds whenever in a mood for an adrenaline rush.
The Hyosung GV650 Aquila Pro tipping the scale at 240 kgs isn’t a light motorcycle and takes you to task in slow moving traffic – but a raked out front with 1670mm wheelbase gives the bike a rock-steady hold of the road during high speed.
Never would anyone have felt as good riding a cruiser into the corners as the Aquila. Show the Aquila Pro a wide corner and it would just blast through without dropping speed. In fact you could just whack the throttle and go around the bend faster than expected. It’s all thanks to a perfectly calibrated front suspension which is neither too soft to dive nor too harsh to rattle your wrists.
Tyres & Braking
The 120/70-18 front and a fat 180/55-17 rear set of tyres lend phenomenal levels of grip to the motorcycle. Not even once would you feel the motorcycle erring out of its desired line of travel. 5 stars to the Aquila Pro in the handling department.
Twin 300mm disc rotor setup at the front, and a 270mm single disc rear brake is sharp enough.
Broad leather seats, forward placed footrests, with the feet and hands reaching out to the pegs and the handlebars, this riding position render a Cruiser style which is most desired on such machines for a comfortable riding position. There’s no discomfort on short or long rides.
