2009 Hyosung Aquila GV650
As it stands now, it is not safe to drive
Tires wore prematurely as a new bike.
Gas tank: Definitely a problem with this bike. It is 2 years old and has serious issues. Leaks around the seam and small pin holes. There have been 5 riders in the last month with the same problem at the same dealership. This is a safety hazard and needs to be addressed by Hyosung. Replacing it with a new tank is a short fix, because the same problem will occur. This is a manufacturing fault! Do some riders and or technicians have to get seriously injured when this problem causes a fire, for Hyosung to do something!
I like my GV650, but I'm afraid that if the tank problem does not become a recall, then I will not buy another Hyosung product.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No

I've had my GV 650 for 2 and a half years now, and the only issue I have had is it can be a bit sticky going from first to second gear. Never heard of any issue with leaking tanks, even in all the other reviews I have read.
Love this bike.

If the bike needs fixing, take it to a bike shop; same as any other thing, if it's made by humans it'll breakdown...
My GV650i is 12 years old, has done 15k miles and has needed nothing...
