Good at a given cost,can be improved more

By Ashish
Good:
Good looks and mileage
Bad:
Quality has to be improved
It looks well suits the given price tag.Headlights also tends to enhance its styling.But quality can be further improved,especially in case of rubber.Im getting mileage about 45kmpl.Hope it could be improved after the first service.However certain vibration is felt and sound is heard at certain speeds


Ergonomics not an issue

By tarun pawar
Good:
Good ergonomics
Bad:
NA
The term comfort is very well felt with this bike,because the bike has been built with such an ergonomics.Seating posture is at 90 degrees,such that I dont feel tired at all,also the footpegs are raised a liitle to enhance the comfort ride to a greater extent.Headlight s also gives a very good illumination.Overall,it is suitable for touring
