DSK Hyosung launched its first motorcycle in 2014 as it pulled the wraps of the Aquila 250, at the 12th edition of the show. But unlike the GV nomenclature it has for the cruiser bike in the international market it has been christened Aquila for the Indian two-wheeler market. The new offering will be powered by a 250cc, oil-cooled, V-twin, 8-valve powerplant. The engine produces 26.5PS @ 9,500rpm and 21Nm @ 7,000rpm. The Aquila 250 will be the second quarter-litre offering from the stables of Hyosung after the GT250R.
The new cruiser offering will be brought in to our two-wheeler market via CKD. The Korean bikemaker has been priced at Rs 2.69 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), which though isn’t cheap by any means. But still it is the cheapest V-twin cruiser offering in our country and will appeal to bikers who are looking at big cruiser with adequate performance and don’t want to shell out a fortune to own one.
