A very limited number of Aquilas were sold,it would be very tough task to find a used one for sale.

I have one offer of Aquila ( 2004 model - 22000 KM running) at 1.15 Lac ... The bike is in immaculate condition but considering the bike is 4 year old i am not prepared to pay anything above 1 lac...As per the owner it averages around 37-38 ... I dont want to loose this deal .. pls suggest the appropriate price.

I think there was one advertised for sale in last month's autocar. If you have an old copy of the magazine try and see. I'll look for it and post details tomorrow.

If you don't have an issue with the riding posture, you could even consider the Comet. While both share the same motor, the comet has terrific aftermarket support in Australia, and it would be easier to source body panels, fairing kits, etc if incase Kinetic India (your only hope) was taking ages to source the same.

Then i understand that you intend to buy a cruiser and keep one for a long time. If thats the case, either go for something from the Royal Enfield range, or lookout for a source for spare parts for the Aquila before you buy the bike itself.
From what i have heard in the past, spares (even the regular consumable stuff sometimes) are not available off the shelf, and you may have to wait for several days everytime your ride is going to need something.

Thats a good news man,best of luck,the one which i reffered you has been sold for 76000 and i came to know from a close friend that it had fallen once while being driven,and was using an Autorickshaw clutch-wire instead of the original Aquilla clutch wire.
