Ride experience was good and was pleasant... Typically commuterish... But the split seat provides good support if ridden full tuck... Wind protection is not good as the wind shield is of absolutely no use being so small... Seat was again commuterish.. Good only for short distance.. Personal suggestion to go for rode on air for long distance... Suspension works fine and will not allow the ride to become to jarring but is not very much suited for high aggressive ridding... Handling is decent enough bike can be flicked around and stays easy on arms... Bike is easy on pocket for fuel and i did manage to get around 60-62 kmpl in city for first year but eventually it has decreased to 45-47 kmpl given that i ride more aggressively in city as well... Although fuel economy is far from good on highway at speeds of 70 km/h since it dips to 40 kmpl... (highly disappointing)??... The power is smooth and post 4000rpm there is a surprise boost of torque waiting to pull you away although you can do from 25 to 100 in 5th gear which means this thing can pull you away no matter your size..????
I was never a fan of looks from certain angles specifically the absolute sides... Fairing looks to have stopped right before the end and short wind shield makes it look odder... But front and rear 3/4 angles are the best to look at this bike which make me love her even more... Performance is good for a commuter.... Good torque low the rev range for city rides under 4000 rpm... Good power post the mark... Low vibration (kudos to hero...)
Can get to cruise speeds real easy and quick... I don't have a vbox and got some heavy mods but this thing can do 0-60 in 6-7 seconds.. (impressive for a 125cc commuter)... There is absolutely no point of revving engine after 8500 rpm as the engine flat lines and revs go upto 10000 rpm and the bike goes to 111km/h (atleast mine did????) breaking is handled by 240 mm bybre unit at front and a 130mm drum at rear which are ok.... But lack the feel... ????
Maintenance and service are subject to market risks.... Well bike it self is rock solid but if you are anyone like me who can't keep the bike stock... You need to visit service centre more often... But here is a catch... I messed bike twice and they were real bad back to back (i almost died) and spare parts were not available.. Not even disc plate... (disappointing).... Maintenance is easy and then depends on courtesy of your service centre.... ???? (may the force be with you) give the bike it's proper food and she is ready to roll....
Good mileage for a 125cc
Easy to maintain
Easy to work around
Easy on pocket
Bloody dumb stock tyres (i changed them on the very first day)
Well this being my first bike.. I love it...
Probably one of the best 125 today (although discontinued) i won't sell this one no matter how many i buy....
Ciao guys hope you find this useful... Ride safe ride hard.. Wear safety gears all time.... Specifically helmet....
Gears i use: vega cara helmet, rynox tronado pro l2 jacket and snocyo gloves
