Hyosung Aquila: One Big Little Bike or One Little Big Bike, Your Choice
By Clay(Owner), Nov. 28, 2008

I purchased my Hyosung in July. I have ridden over 5K. I ride on all types of highways, streets and speeds. I have had very few problems. I had to replace the chain due to stretching and the clock on my speedomitoer needed replacing. In my opinion it is a fantastic buy for the money. Sure, the chro... Read Full Review
