GV 650 AquilaPoints: 30
Just to say hello from a new member. Yet another old boy returning to biking.
I’m 61 and live outside London, took delivery of my 17 reg Hyosung GV 650 Aquila yesterday. I brought it from SoManyBikes at Oldham on the strength of their photo’s and reassurance from their salesman Matt. The deal was done and money paid Friday, delivered 170 miles to my door Wednesday and I have to say that it’s even better than I was hoping for, so well done to them.
I have been aware of these bikes for about 10 years as I first saw one when on holiday in Majorca, I was sat outside a bar much admiring one which turned out to belong to the chap serving the drinks. He spoke little English but we still managed to chat about it and I understood how much he liked it. There had been a couple of times I nearly got one but for various reasons nothing until this week. Over the years I had looked at other makes but this always seemed to be the one for me.
My bike has done 3727 miles which is fine for me as from I have read there was no real advantage in buying brand new as Hyosung had a poor record on after sales service and spares, plus any dealers seem few and far between. I am aware that certain items will need replacing or upgrading so I will have a good read through the forum and put myself a list together.

Welcome to the new forum! After reading through, i’ll say this ” bike life doesn’t leave you, once you’re a biker 😉 ”
Anyways, speaking of Hyosungs, you may have missed out on 2 great meets which happend in Matlock & the Midlands this 2018 summer , it would have been nice to meet you and other guys would too.
This winter 2018, keep her nice and looked after , 2019 we’re all of to Didcot (South UK) as the next set of meet & rides.
You can find more info on the forum’s “Rides” section. Or RSVP yourself , on the facebook group if you like:
A lot of using this new forum came from facebook, as there was no forum for UK! – So speaking of forums, you can browse a little and you will get yourself an owners manual and service books.
So if you’re looking to do certain tasks on the bike or know more info on something, the service manuals are all uploaded on this site.
Ride safe this weekend!
