Suggestions for combined leaner/fully licensed bike?

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' at netrider.net.au started by russo, Mar 23, 2006.

  1. My wife is getting her L's and I'm fully licensed. We've been looking at the Hyosung GV 650 Aquila as she likes the cruisers and we need something to suit both of us. She is 165cm tall, will be ridden approx 500km/week including all conditions - freeway, city, all weather etc.

    Does anyone have any feedback on riding this bike including fuel, maintenance, comfort etc or comments on if this would be a good buy or if there is anything else to suit? Don't want to spend more than $11000 on road.

  2. I dont know about the hyosungs but a yamaha XVS 650 is an awesome bike. I ride the XVS 1100 comfortable as heaps of power and never looked back from buying it.

    ive done 10,000 kms on it now and im in love with it.
  3. Yamaha

    Yeah she likes those, not sure if it be too heavy for her though. They are a very nice bike.
