hyosung aquila gv250 launched in India

No surprises here, as expected for a long time now DSK Hyosung finally launched the Aquila GV250 cruiser at the Auto Expo 2014. The Hyosung Aquila GV250, we must say is one good looking cruiser. It can for sure be mistaken for something of a much higher capacity. With a generous amount of chrome adorning this machine, the Hyosung Aquila GV250 shines and catches your eye from every angle. The Hyosung Aquila GV250 is the first proper cruiser in the 250 cc segment and comes at a price tag of 2.69 lakh ex-showroom Delhi. For that price you get a V-Twin engine that produces 26 BHP of power and 22 Nm of torque. Numbers that should see you cruise at highway speeds easily. The bookings for this 250 cc cruiser have already begun. Colour options for the Aquila Gv250 include, white, a red and black combo and a black one.

Also at the Auto Expo 2014 from Hyosung were the GD250N, the RT125D and the Comet 250 (GT250N). The GD250N is Hyosung’s answer to the likes of the Duke 200 and priced right it just might be. Hope it gets launched soon. The Comet 250 in our opinion should have been in the market long back, it already has a strong following owing to the fact that it was once launched earlier. Then comes the RT125D, well, we will reserve our comments on this motorcycle for when it actually comes here.

Mr. Shirish Kulkarni – Chairman, DSK Hyosung
