2007 Hyosung Aquila GV650


Outperforms MANY 1500cc cruisers


Updated the charging system.

General Comments:

The GV650 is really a bigger bike than a 650cc. Sold my 2008 Kawi Drifter 1500 because I couldn't get it fast enough after dumping thousands into it.

All you big cruiser guys that REALLY want to take a cruiser in the twisties, then this bike HAS the power.

TONS of aftermarket options to make it custom, and my dealer is great.

Not sure where some of these people that gave their reviews store their bikes, but mine has no problems with the chrome nor rusting??? 22000 miles on it...

The seat at first was a little stiff to get use to, but it's a sporty cruiser :)

Poor quality manufacturing


Do not buy this motorcycle. I was excited to be getting such a deal, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

I only have 6000 miles on this bike, and it has been in the shop 3, going on its 4th time.

The first time was a failure of the foot link shifter, which broke off completely while I was on the highway.

The second was for a problem with the clutch cable, and the two most recent have been a leak with the gas tank. The tank was just repaired two weeks ago and replaced with a new tank. It is now leaking again.

I would highly recommend not buying this bike! Such poor quality manufacturing.

Spend your money elsewhere. That's just my opinion, based on my experience.

I bought a 650 GV, and it's the best ride I've had in 15 years... It's a great bike; maybe your mechanic needs to go back to school and learn to fix or replace things properly. I bought it with 3 kms brand new this year, put 4800 clicks on it, and had it serviced once for a minor oil leak off of the pressure valve. It's an outstanding bike for the cost.

Awesome bike to ride. Great value for money. Find a decent mechanic, and you'll never have any issues with this bike. I have ridden 5000 kms, and it still runs like it did when I first bought it.

A bargain bike that's not 'cheap'


Right after I purchased it, the clutch safety switch became disconnected after washing it. That was an easy fix, I simply put dielectric grease on the connection and put it back together. It's not acted up again.

The chrome cover over the swingarm pivot has fallen off twice, and needed replacement.

General Comments:

The GV650 is a unique cruiser that gets attention wherever I take it. Nobody believes it was only a little over $6000 and came with a two year warranty!

It handles like a sportbike, and outruns all but the large Japanese cruisers.

My only complaint is that the footpegs are too far forward even in the closer of the two positions. And I wear a 34" inseam! I guess I'm used to riding sportbikes.

The quality and fit & finish is as good as any of the Japanese companies.

With belt drive, digital dash, water cooling, LED taillight, inverted fork, disk brakes all around, and great acceleration, I would recommend the GV to anyone wanting a quality cruiser that's not overpriced and not based on technology outdated forty years ago!

This motorcycle is now sitting unusable in the garage. It stripped the countershaft and pulley when it was 1-1/2 months out of warranty. I only have a little over 4,000 miles on it now. NOT HAPPY WITH BIKE, LOCAL DEALERS OR HYOSUNG AT THIS POINT!

You will not find a more impressive cruiser for the money, or even double


Upon receiving the cycle from the dealer, who stayed open 2 extra hours, the bike had a defective petcock; just a fluke problem.

The cycle's right springs chrome chipped.

General Comments:

This cycle is fantastic for a new rider or any advanced rider.

Unbelievable torque with speed; too impressive for any 647cc cruiser. I've personally topped the bike to 142mph in 5th, but believe it may have a little more in 4th. WOW.

Good balance, but could lose the weight of the muffler for increased balance.

Decent comfort and ride.

I love this cycle!
