Impulsating

Style

the styling is of a typical dirt bike, the front mud guard tho not of mch use in the rains give a nice arrow forward feel to the bike! the icing is the silencer below the seat, that always has ppl asking and staring. The long seat can take me, my bag and a person at the back and his/her bag!

engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox

149 cc engine is silent, sometimes makes me wwonder if it is even on. Bt a typical silent killer, 0-30 leaves most bikes in the mirror well, thne they start catching up and evn go ahead, a little more power wud do on road. Handling is as nimble as possible, lik iv mentioned go anywhere do anything bike it is. Fuel fill it forget it, is what i hav been doing for the last 2 years of owning the bike. Gear box is a slight issue though, switching from 1 to 2 always go to false neutral, well hav read is a hero problem so ccant blame the bike. But hav taken to the roughest of terrain eg. Rajmachi(lonavala) bike mae the dirt eat itself.

Ride quality & handling

hav tried steps, jumps, pot holes, footpaths, gravel, mud, sand, ......... List goes on and there is nothing stopping this bike. Light no wait very light. Grt handler. Seat is so soft u can sleep on it. Best part the seat extends forward saves ur b@ll$)). Very helpfull

final words

a bike i would hav any day and always seems to put a smile on ym face and even after 2 years still find something new to do with it!

more then 15 k km do in 1 year! thats how mch i cant stop riding it!

areas of improvement

hero pls come up with a bigger engine. Everything is beyond perfect.

Pros

go anywhere do anything

cons

little lack of power for the road
