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.

 

Speaking at the launch, Shirish Kulkarni Chairman, DSK Hyosung said, “This is the first time we are participating at this mega auto event; we wanted to mark our entry with oodles of luxury, style and performance and decided that the best way to do it was to introduce The Real Cruiser - The Aquila 250. This luxury cruiser is the first-of-its kind in the Indian market and will offer unparallel ride quality, performance, cruiser comfort and stability for speed connoisseurs. Apart from Aquila 250, we are also showcasing three of our future bikes – The RT 125 D, GD 250N and Comet 250 (250 cc) that will give a glimpse into the brand’s vision in terms of superior design, engineering and technological advancement.”

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. Apart from launching the Aquila 250, Hyosung also showcased the GD250N, which is a 250cc, parallel-twin street bike and is speculated to head our shores by mid-2014. Hyosung also had showcased the RT 125 D, to gauge customer response. It is now learnt that DSK is planning to bring in the off-road bike by end of the year but with a 250cc powerplant unlike the 125cc offering displayed.
