Written by Nizam Shaikh

Hyosung has launched a new bobber style cruiser in the European market called the Aquila GV 300 S Bobber. The Hyosung Aquila GV 300 S Bobber features classic American cruiser styling dark theme all around with minimal use of chrome elements and is A2 licence friendly. 

In terms of styling, the Aquila GV 300 S Bobber features a rounded headlamp with a piano black ring and matte black dome, chopped front fender, straight handlebars in a black finish, gloss black finish mirrors, a large squarish fuel tank, pod-style semi-digital instrumentation console, scooped seats with quilted pattern, short rear fender, oval side panels, a black-finished engine with silver-painted cylinder heads, low slung two-into-one straight exhaust and a small tail lamp. 

Powering the Aquila GV 300 S bobber is a 296cc liquid-cooled V-Twin Cylinder 6-valve SOHC engine with electronic fuel injection that produces 30 Bhp of power and 25.6 Nm of torque matched to a 6-speed gearbox and a chain drive. The motorcycle comes with an easily accessible 710mm of saddle height and 169.5 kg weight that makes it easily manoeuvrable in urban environments.

For mechanical parts, the Hyosung Aquila GV 300 S bobber receives a semi-double-cradle frame that rides on conventional telescopic front forks and coil spring hydraulic rear suspension. The motorbike also features 16-inch multispoke alloy wheel at the front shod in 120/80 tyres and a 15-inch alloy wheels at the back shod in 150/80 tyres, both painted in black. For stopping power the Bobber gets a single hydraulically operated disc brake on both the front and rear wheel.

Hyosung has had a fair share in the Indian market but the brand suspended its operations on this side of the ocean after new ABS norms were implemented. As of now, there is no news if the South Korean brand will make a come-back in the Indian market but if Hyosung plans to bring the Aquila GV 300 S Bobber in the Indian market it will be priced close to the INR 4.5 lakh mark. 

The Hyosung Aquila GV 300 S Bobber is priced at EUR 5,999 in the Netherlands inclusive of all taxes and unavoidable costs.
