2013 Hyosung Aquila GV650 PRO cruiser bike –
The Aquila GV650 Pro is the second cruiser bike in India after the ST7, and with the introduction of Aquila GV650 in India the Aquila moniker has made a re-entry in India. This cruiser sits above the ST7 and features a more powerful engine.The cruiser Aquila Pro (650cc) will be available in three colour variants – Lava Red, Phantam Silver & Shadow Black.
Under the skin, it comes powered by a 647cc V-twin engine that is very similar to that of the Suzuki SV650. And this is the same engine that also powers the GT650R. The V-twin has a peak power output of 74hp@9000 RPM while peak torque is rated at 62.1Nm. The bike has a top speed of 195kmph.
The unique thing about the GV650 is its styling which isn’t retro like the ST7 but takes on a more masculine, almost V-Rod-ish sort of look and it is easily one of the best looking cruisers on-sale in India. It gives exceptional stability and balance – and is designed for highly comfortable cruising. The most striking feature is the sporty style of the cruiser which dazzles with an abundance of chrome.
2013 Hyosung GT650R sports bike –
The 2013 version of the GT650R is just a small refresh from its predecessor, because the company feels that the similarity of the design between the GT650R and the GT250R has been one of the reasons why 650 buyers are not getting the exclusivity the more expensive motorcycle commands. Thus, the company has decided to give it a slight makeover.
In terms of engine specifications – its completely the same bike, the additions have been more on the custom design end with a new front design, new headlight, new body graphics, revised instrument cluster, suspension and engine tweaks, the 2013 GT650R looks sharper than the outgoing model. The motorcycle does look fitter up front but the visual mass at the rear is unchanged.
The 2013 edition of Hyosung GT650R will be available in 3 color variants – Titanium White, Titanium Red and Titanium Black.
Powered by a 647 cc, V-twin engine, two-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid cooled, eight-valve, DOHC engine and mated to a six-speed transmission. The maximum power produced by this motor is 72.68 hp @ 9000 rpm and peak torque is 60.9 Nm @ 7500 rpm. The fuel tank capacity of Hyosung GT650R is 17 litres.
The company will also be launching a 250cc single cylinder motorcycle towards the end of 2013.
