Style

it's a must buy in case of styling..

Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox

engine over heats a lot, bike fails on hot start, pickup is amazing, superb handling, fuel on street 20-22, highway- 29-30

ride quality & handling

handling is superb and quality is not that good, suspensions, clutches are very hard , seat is very very stiff

final words

must buy, don't think much, buy before the another price hike

areas of improvement

hard seats, tight suspensions, oil tank is just 10.5 Litres, stone hard clutches, noisy , engine heats a lot, hot start problem, coolant problem...

Pros

abs, metzeler tyre, 390 cc engine

cons

stiff seat, orange telescopic body, stiff suspension, good on highways, not good in streets
