- The buying process was pleasant, and the staff was well-trained. Riding this bike is exhilarating in the city and relaxing on the highway. Many people make mistakes when cycling in the city. People try to upshift incessantly and then complain about a lack of torque. Pros: don’t upshift gears; the bike is capable of handling higher RPMs. Within traffic, use 1,2, and 3rd gears and 4th gear on those traffic-free straights. The fifth gear is reserved for extremely long highway stretches. If you ride like this, the bike will be explosive in the city and a lot of fun thanks to the great exhaust. I live in Bangalore, therefore servicing is not a problem for me. There are two centers with well-trained personnel. It didn’t cost a lot of money, either.
- The bike is really quiet and vibration-free. The braking is excellent. Up until 4th gear, the pickup is excellent. Cruising on 100 is a piece of cake. The thump has been re-defined as well. Except for the missing mud flaps, I found no problems with the bike after 1000 kilometers. Overall, the bike’s quality is comparable to that of a Honda. Another concern is that, due to the newness of the product, the accessories are extremely limited. I paid Rs 950 for the first service. The MRF tyres provide excellent road grip. Because the pickup is on a higher note in the starting speeds, you’ll require pillion rider padding.
