Good buying experience, riding comfort is good since the bike is bit heavy compared to other similar segments so its stable while riding. Looks wise, its very old and everything is equal to a start up range bikes. Performance in 1st and 3rd gear is good and you can feel lagging in 5th.. But more the acceleration, more the performance. But gear shifting or coming down is ridiculous.. Too bad compared to any bike models of 150 cc very bad engineering.. Mileage is very poor compared to other similar segment bikes. Its ok only when you do not exceed the economy indicator. It will cross around 45- 50 or else (even if you maintain 60) mileage is just 40. Despite how you maintain your bike. How can one drive less than 60 always? worst servicing in company. No one does the service properly for hero bikes especially, this is outdated model bike and so spares are very rare to get.
Pros: excellent stability, braking is good and no tiresome driving even if you drive long. Good for an elderly family person.
Cons: worst back suspension, worst gear performance, worst servicing, ridiculous mileage.
