This would be the machine India might have been waited for. Carried over from South Korea to India, this cruiser becomes a true challenge for the other premium cruiser manufactures.

The Aquila Pro is the 5th motorcycle to be launched in India by Hyosung.
Now we can call the Aquila Pro a staggering cruiser. Bumped with a blubber fuel tank and a cruiser typical wide handlebar pay it a lot of attention in the streets. Its chrome finished round headlamp and a chubby converged exhaust, and well ceased paint works define the hulk in it. A tail lamp which is clubbed with 21 LEDs extends the beauty to the end. Moreover, a couple of 3 spoke alloy wheels at both ends, and in one of wheels at front is glued by dual hydraulic disc brake at a 120 section tyre. While the rear chunky 180 section tyre is entangled with a single disc brake making things more lively.
At some angles, the GV650 Aquila Pro resemblances the Harley Davidson V Rod. So it is definitely a good call, if you want to be pulled on a stylish cruiser that has dazing attention.
The Aquila Pro is comprised of many features that promote the motorcycle to the next level of cruising. Thanks to the full screened digital meter console. Here you find things at a mere glance.
