Chennai: Finding a good response to the 250cc v-twin engine imported cruiser bike, Aquila from the Korean company Hyosung Motors, the Pune-based Kinetic Engineering Limited, has decided to launch the bike in Chennai.

Announcing the introduction of the final round of Aquilas, Arun Firodia, chairman, Kinetic Group said," It's a matter of pride for the group to be able to bring the country's fastest and most advanced cruiser. The original plan was to introduce 100 bikes only across the country - but the response and demand for the Aquila led us to double - and now, finally triple the quantity. I am glad that we are now including Chennai in our plans since it has always been a city of motorcycle - especially cruisers - enthusiasts."
