  •  5Bullet my life 2 weeks ago by Sijo, Thane

    I had this bike for a year and its riding experience is very good and its actually worth our money it has a very classy look and it has a good servicing facility overall the region it has very good advantage in long riding and it has a very low ground clearance and it has to be serviced periodically and in case if its spare parts are bit costly if it need to be changed.
