The engine is mated to a 5-speed constant mesh transmission, similar to what is offered on the normal Aquila. The bike sports disc brakes up front and drums at the rear. The bike has a kerb weight of 179 kg. It has a 14 liter fuel tank and sits on 16 inch rims up front and 15 inch ones at the back.
The Aquila is imported as a CKD (completely knocked down) unit and assembled at Hyosung’s facility in Wai, Maharashtra. The place is near Pune.
The Aquila was first introduced over a decade ago in India by Kinetic Motors. Since there weren’t too many options at that time, the bike well and they managed to immediately sell all the units that they had imported. The bike was later phased out which left existing customers hunting for serivce centers and spare parts for their bikes.
