you can't expect more style. Many times when i visited rural area in india, people before telling me the directions asked about this bike. When it’s on run people just watch it and watch again, even a land rover passes by. It’s the beauty on indian roads.
Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox
engine is good and smooth. If you use proper engine oil, it can run for whole one year without changing the oil. Never heated up even for 130 km straight run. Fuel economy is around 35-40 km/liter. For a cruise its very good. Gearbox is little tricky, you need to change smoothly (with minimum pressure), and will get optimum result.
Ride quality & handling
excellent ride quality. Best comfort more than enfield. Low height makes perfect balance. You will feel pleasure riding and no pressure on hands. Sitting posture is very comfortable. Handling is smooth and its more depreciation angle stops sudden and jerky handle moves.
for this price tag, it is a fabulous choice. If you like classics and enjoyable rides, go for it. Suspension is excellent for rider, and on indian roads you will “feel like god”.
Areas of improvement
1. Gearbox for smooth transactions.
2. Oil tank top is shinny in afternoons, little uncomfortable while riding if sun rays are reflected to your eyes.
3. If bajaj can build hybrid engine for this, nothing can beat it.
