I bought this bike on 2nd may 2014 and till date have completed 250 kms. U won't believe but rear suspensions are awesome. U will not feel any bump sitting there. Bike is somewhat light weight but 125 kgs is also good. Gears are smooth and mileage is 69km in bhubaneswar city. I know this is unbelievable but bajaj is bajaj when it comes to mileage. This is when we two people (me and my cousin) of total weight 160 kgs are going to our office daily. If you drive it as per companies recommendation of 71 kgs you may get 71-72 in the city. The best way to measure this is to fill the fuel tank with 70 rupees of petrol (because petrol is 70rs /litre here)just after getting reserve for the first time. My bajaj dealers are also not believing that a bike can give only 7 kmpl less than the company's claim. But no one can give you such a detailed review on mileage. Moreover i live in the outskirts where roads are not very good and have to run almost 1/4th of my total journey in 2nd and 3rd gear.
If you want to get the same mileage please run first 500-600 kms at a speed of 40-45 kmph otherwise u will never get this mileage in the whole lifetime of the bike. Don't accelarate too much till first 2 servicings and please control your emotions while accelarating.1-2 Kmpl will surely increase after 2nd-3rd servicings.Just follow this steps and its my guarantee that you will get a mileage between 65-70 kmpl in city.
On first 2 days, i was feeling like, i am riding some 100cc bike but after completing 40-50kms, excellent power is getting generated from the engine. They have also tuned the engine and now even at a speed of 20-25kmph, 3rd gear isn't create problems like previous bajaj bikes.
Style and agronomics are just perfect because you sit in a 90 degree posture which is excellent for your backbone.
Don't compare it with 150cc bikes as their engine are bit powerful than 125cc. But overall this is the best bike in this 55k range (on road).
