      GV125

      I keep seeing info for earlier GV125 with 6 gears. My 2011 has 5 gears and 6 sounds very interesting.

      Hyosung manual says 6 gears and tech info sites have early GVs with 6 gears.

      Is this the case did they have 6 gears at any time?

      If they did how did it change top speed etc?

      Can newer models be altered from 5 gears to 6?

      They did exist but much rarer though! –  It is now common they are now 5 speed,  as is the GT125 bikes.

      It is the GT650 and GV650 still to this day share the same engine but  the GT650 has 6 gears.  (Sometimes the GV does!) – Also depends on the markets Korea sells the bikes to.

      Don’t worry though, the 5 speed gearbox on the 125 is more than adequate for it as the 6th would be like some kind of overdrive gear.

      Thank you for that info Marcel, it has shed light on that.  I have no intention of altering mine but info is useful. I will keep my eyes peeled for an old 6 speed 125 as it has peeked my interest.

      The fact that the 650 shares the same bottom end is interesting also, shows the strength of the 125 set up.
