    The looks of the bike is sleek and it can cut through traffic like a hot knife through butter despite being a faired bike.Riding experience: its my fourth bike. Earlier i had (1) kinetic boss; (2) bajaj discover; (3) yamaha ss 125. Suzuki hayate is my fourth bike. Having got experienced with my previous bikes, i find suzuki hayate quite light-weight, user friendly, friction less and smooth in riding. Since its 113 cc bike, riding on mountain hills with a pillion rider may not be quite attractive, but for a single person, its perfect. Seat is quite comfortable. The handle position is extremely comfortable in riding. Change of gears is purely smooth with literally no friction at all. You can ride at a speed of 20 kmph in 4th gear, and still you won't feel it.

    Finally, i may say 8/10 in riding experience.

    Details about looks, performance etc.: it offers three colors at present. I took silver oost, which is naturally catchy. Right now, i don't know how my bike will look after few years, but presently its quite attractive in appearance and looks. Front as well as rear side appearance is superb. I am more than happy that this bike is stand alone compared to all other 110 cc segment bikes. And probably, this is only the bike with tubeless tires in so reasonable price.

    Finally, i will give 8/10 in this category.

    Servicing and maintenance: i won't comment right now in this category, as i am yet to finish some long rides and get it serviced. But as any other new bike, it appears maintenance free.

    I reserve my marks for post-service period.

    Pros and cons:

    Advantages: if you are planning to own a 110 cc segment bike with brilliant looks and want to keep the bike for your own usage for 6+ years, this is the most suitable bike. I don't see any problems in riding, handling or maintenance. Price is also a positive part. It comes with 2 years warranty with an option for +3 years extended warranty. Like any other model, the extended warranty appears attractive, but most of the expensive parts are not covered in this warranty, still its worth taking, as the price of extended warranty is just rs. 700/- or so for 3 years. Positives are look, comfort in riding and friction less engine with smooth gears.

    Disadvantages: suzuki is yet to prove its credentials in 110 and 125 cc bikes. Its unable to give a strong competition to famous companies like yamaha, hero or honda. The servicing centers are also not as wide as other companies. The spare parts may also not be available at ease (unless you are in contact with a very good service center). A compatible seat cover, tank cover and other accessories are not easily available. Still, there are less negatives as compared to its positives. Even though, the company claims a mileage of about 75 kmpl or so, but it may not give a running mileage of more than 60 kmpl in city roads.

    It's been nearly 3 years since I purchased the bike. I was confused between Honda shine and tvs centuro at that time but showed confidence in Honda shine. I had bought the bike from dealership near me in pane. Right from start all the agents there helped me a lot in buying process, pre- delivery inspection and all. In all if i want to rate the buying experience out of 5 stars I will give 5 stars. You sit in very comfortable position, so you can do long trips without much tiredness. Clutch is also not on a stiffer side, so it gets easy to do quick gear changes giving you a comfortable ride in city traffic as well. If I want to rate riding experience out of 5 I will give 4 stars. If I speak about looks of the bike, it is quite a stylish looking bike for city commute and the blacked out alloy wheels add more style in the overall look. It's 125cc engine gives a good power in city as well on highway. You will reach 100km/h easily but after that you will feel little vibration and are easily felt. You never feel out power in any situation and accelerates really quickly. The maintenance cost of honda shine is really very low. While it may vary from person to person on it's usage what the maintenance cost will be. But it is on the lower side as compared to other. The servicing can also vary from person to person, dealership to dealership. But I personally service the bike every 3 months and that costs me around INR 800 for oil change, washing, oiling, and other overall servicing. I have been using this bike for nearly 3 years now. While speaking about my long term experience, the bike has constantly delivered mileage of about 60 to 65 per liter which is definitely a good thing. As the user since 3 years, the performance and mileage is almost constant and not changed a lot. Though there is a slight noise in gear shift now but it's not a cause of concern and is negligible. Pros : stylish looking, good mileage, no lack in performance & power, best bike for city commute, comfortable seating position, not much costly, good dealer network. Cons : little engine noise, chain slips most frequently, disc brake little tighter. Overall it's a good package and a best budget buy for middle class people. It provides a complete package required for daily commute.

    It is a one of greatest bike in 125 cc and its riding is very smooth, No back pain, road grip is good and combination of breaking system is well.
    for riders it is a anti skid bike on road and it's pickup is Excellent.
    Tubeless tyre's more use full for riders, it design color's are so attractive for everyone and flexible indicators as well .good bike for youth, bike mileage near 60 km / liters.

    for long distance ride this bike was not made. it's having lot of issues with gear box.
    if you are looking for daily use bike then must go for it but don't buy if you wish to go for long drive.
    most useful bike for daily lower distance traveling.

    It's a great bike if you are looking for daily commuting. The bike will give you great mileage 50-55 easily without any issue. If you are someone who is looking for fun to ride a bike then don't go for it if you rev it hard you are gonna lose mileage more than 60 kmph the engine gets heated so much and you can feel the vibrations also on the footpeg there should be more refinement in the engine and all 1 -2-3 gears are short but 4 gear is long you are gonna definitely miss the 5th gear as well there should be a proper gearing ratio unpleasing experience after 60 km for a brand like honda it's not worthy. Seat comfortable is great...I have hero honda passion plus also it is 14 yrs old bike but after 55 kmph I feel like the engine way better than honda shine.the bikes are today getting more styles but in build quality and durability of bikes are getting low day by day they are selling their products on the name of the brand only.
