Buying experience- when i went to the showroom, they said its not a bike, its a machine(i was like “ “oh! common bro” ). I was so confused whether i go for it or not.
Riding experience - i owned this beauty 6 months ago, when it comes to smooth riding? its a beauty, when it comes to 0-100 kmph its a 'beast', for first few days or km's, you will feel dis-comfortable, once you understood the accent, you will start loving this beauty, smooth in ride(at low rpm), people will look at your bike (not you), roar is awesome, its a perfect package of power, comfort,etc.
About bike- cafe-racer!! its a rare bike, you will get attention when you are awaiting green signal, people will look a you. 0-100 kmph is less than 10 sec (i tested and confirmed), the build of bike is heavy and strong, you will feel like a king while riding. On bad roads, you will be happy with the suspension (perilli) and brakes (brembo). Bike follows your commands. At high speed you can feel the comfort. Best handling for corners and quick turns.
Servicing and maintenance - as conti is equipped with the traditional royal enfield engine, the maintenance is normal, affordable for your pocket, if you have knowledge of bikes and engines, you need to look at the tuning of your bike at service centres as they will down the pick-up power, service centres are also good, they will help you with your questions and doubts.
