2009 Hyosung Aquila GV650 from United States of America
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.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No

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.

The biggest problem with this bike is it being owned by noobs who haven't a clue about bikes they ride or the cars they drive; it's all about posing and talking loudly to them, to make up for their shortness in every other department. They simply don't deserve a decent bike of any make; they'll be whining about everything whatever they get, because they'll be finding out the world doesn't revolve around them.
I've actually got one of these bikes; I also have several other makes as well. The one I choose to ride mostly on the sunny days is the Hyosung. It's the old early injection model, and still goes and looks like new. I'm chuffed with the value for my money so far.
I have a newer larger Honda that just breaks down all the time, and also a Yamaha dirt bike that is a joke on the dirt.
The Hyosung does what it's supposed to do, nothing more, but then also nothing less.
It's made by humans right, this means it's going to need fettling, loving and caring for, and I do just that, and have done on every bike I've owned for the past 52 years that I've been riding bikes.
