    Buy a Honda

    published

    I can't get this bike to stay running. It starts but as soon as you open the throttle it dies. I only have 85 miles on the bike which is practically new, this seems so bizarre! Save your pennies and buy a Honda or Yamaha, it's so unreliable. This is 1950 technology.

    Can't get rid of it fast enough

    published

    I got my GV250 because it looked pretty and I was really excited to start riding, but I failed to do any real research about them first. I had electrical issues right out of the gate and have been stranded several times. NO GARAGE will even look at it for you, not even the DEALER. There is no reliable support for this bike in the states. I'm trying to sell mine for parts and I still can't get rid of it.

    i picked up gv250 as non runner stripped down to fix, found broken wires, right switch not working, this turns out as design problem, the cable enters in rear of switch there is a gap that lets water in took apart cleaned up filled gap with silicon seems to have fixed that, note other comments re starting, check this out
    other design faults, the wiring from frame to dash cluster, was stretched, rerouted after fixing broken wires, hope this fixes this
    yet to ride, there is a noise top end front chamber , am doing home work to sort, checked cam and follower, these seems ok, not done a compression test any ideas?

    Great value first bike

    published

    This is an ideal bike to learn with. The controls are simple and it handles quite well. It's pretty economical while still being a lot of fun. It's a pretty cheap bike but still looks cool. The one minor downer is finding neutral which can be really hard once the engine gets hot. I find it slightly easier to find neutral when I rev it a bit. If you need to ride through prolonged stop-start traffic I would suggest another bike with easier neutral. Also, if you are taller than 180cm I would try other bikes as the GV250 might be a bit of a squeeze. I've only ridden it 2000km so can't say much about reliability.
    Fun, economical, good looks
    Finding neutral difficult when engine hot

    Neutral is often impossible to find from 1st but is easily solved by putting it in 2nd and liightly tapping it down to locate neutral. Works 100% then!

    Not to mention you shouldn't be in neutral in traffic anyway

    At age 50 decided to get bike licence, after a lot of research chose this bike for it's looks (didn't look like a 250cc bike), price and engine specs. So happy I did, only problem is I don't get to ride it as much as I would like. Fuel economy is good, around 300klm to tank, mainly around town riding. On the open road runs nice at around 110 to 120 kmh and doesn't affect the fuel consumption greatly. Have added a genuine sissy bar and also fitted a rear rack off a Harley V Rod using a little bit of creative engineering (genuine Hyosung one is ugly). Has been a very reliable bike
    Great on fuel, very easy to ride, looks like a larger bike. Excellent learners bike
    Hard to find neutral.rear brake a bit spongy

    i bought this bike, and after looking at the reviews on the internet, of different brands of bikes, i am so happy i purchased the aquila. i would like to have an extra 20kph in top gear but that would be braking the speed limit. i have done 12000km and bought the bike two years ago.
    looks great, easy to ride, no poblems riding down the major highways.
    i have had problems with front disc brake not working 100%, but now fixed.

    Good bike for a learner and has the looks. The ride position and for short people the seat to the ground is good for safety.
    Good Looking bike. Good ride position for older rider. Only new bike not bad for the price and the style. Hope all the plastic stays in the same condition. Fun to ride.
    Front brake needs attention. But no problems yet.
