Hyosung GV125C is the smaller variant of the Hyosung GV Cruiser series that comes with a small capacity engine that uniquely featuring a full-size Cruiser with powerful V-twin 8 valve DOHC motors that deliver a smooth and confident ride – normally only found in larger displacement machines.
Cruiser bikes look really attractive and comfy, but this doesn’t always work out well for city rides in practice. The Hyosung GV125C suits better for long rides on the open highways and the rider should have to be a standard height person to hold the wider handlebar and other control levers that need to operate by legs. In such conditions, Hyosung GV125C is a nicely featured cruiser that can be ridden by short-height riders also.
The Hyosung GV125C is a good-performing motorcycle. The bike has a 14L fuel tank which is on the larger side of the spectrum for this segment. The overall length of H Power Premio is 2282 mm while the width and height are kept at 875 mm and 1096 mm.
The weight of this bike is 172kg for stability at cruising speeds but this makes it very difficult to maneuver in city handling with 150 mm ground clearance which is pretty low but OK in this segment. The wheelbase is 1515 mm which enables easy rideability and stability at highway speeds with comfort and confidence
We are here to describe the attributes of the fuel economy of the Hyosung GV125C as you know the 125cc engines are the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the roads. It is better than low-emission hatchbacks and clever-clever hybrids, as most of them can manage sportbike-like fuel economy more. The Hyosung GV125C is not even as good as some but can gently cruise over more miles, and as it is the 14-liter tank should give nearly 600 kilometers of commuting.
Engine and Transmission
Hyosung GV125C possesses a 125 cc, 4-Stroke, V-Twin, oil-cooled DOHC engine where the starting method is both electric and kick. The rev-happy engine churns out a power figure of 9.88 kW @9750 RPM and 9.72 Nm of torque @9500 RPM. The engine’s compression ratio is 11.3:1 with a carburetor for feeding the engine. This machine is paired with a 4-speed manual transmission with a wet multi-plate clutch.
It’s quite common for manufacturers of 125cc engines which are limited to 9.88 kW the engine appears to be struggling. The good news is that Hyosung has used the higher price to pay for a top-spec motor to squeeze out top-notch performance within the range. Not only is this a V-twin engine (unique in its class now), liquid-cooled, with double overhead cams and multiple valves per cylinder.
And the carburetor engine made the effort a lot easier and it can roll smoothly. The clutch assembly is surprisingly quite heavy for a 125cc engine but maybe that’s all part of the big twin-like engines. Coming to the iconic exhaust, it’s a two-into-one chrome job of unprepossessing appearance. So guys, if you want it to look like a Harley, it’s got to be a staggered two-into-two in satin.
