I love it, will never sell it


Perfect reliability.

Replaced the set of tyres.

New battery.

General Comments:

It is very fast, reliable and economical.

I rode it from Mumbai to Hyderabad - a distance of 720kms

Rode in the climatic condition of temperatures soaring to 42.

It is comfortable, and at age of 51 I was not tired by using such a long ride of 720 km.

It gave a fuel consumption of 18.75 KMPL at steady speed for the entire stretch.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
