    I'm going to buy this cheap yet so brilliant equipped and so good looking classic bike and i'm dying to ride on this one. The looks are so damn cool and hot at the same time and with an mileage of 32 km/l, it has definitely made up my mind to buy this beauty. The servicing and maintenance is very less and it catches up really quickly with the wind and i can feel my heart beating and hair juggling up in the hair. Thanks, i will live my life fullest with it.

    I bought classic desert storm 500cc two years back. It's been extremely high on maintenance and a pain to possess. It's prone to scratches, rust and frequent battery failures leading to on the way stoppages. Completely unreliable bike on isolated routes. And just two days after service costing inr 2,500+ from brawn automobiles gurgaon on 19th aug'18 the bike has stopped unable to restart again. This was not the first time it stopped. Called road side assistance at 13:12pm which responded after 3 hr 30 mins by when i had dragged this bike 8 km back home. Thank god was not in mid of a long tour like it happened last time was on the way to doon. It's maintenance will bleed your pocket to death and test your physical fitness to the core, trust me.

    Good looking bike, good to be a 2nd 'for pleasure' bike. Not practical for commuting on traffic laden streets, but amazing for highways and medium distance ride. For long distance, touring, may not be comfortable for most, because of the crouched riding stance.Best enjoyed in the single seater version, though with relevant mods, can be made comfortable for the pillion too. Amazing handling on curves and bends on tarmac. Great pickup/ torque. Not meant for speeds beyond 100 kmph. Needs care and attention, but performs to satisfaction.

    I love bikes, in fact anything that has a throttle and 2 wheels to support my weight. Any sane person who likes classic stuff will definitely appreciate the retro looks of desert storm. You pay a good amount for an unrefined, old school machine which vibrates a lot, but the thump and looks keep wanting for more.

    Pros. Looks, comfortable seating, good torque at low rpm gives good lugging ability, metal body, cheap repairs and simple mechanical which can be tackled at any corner of india.

    Cons. Vibrations, lacks refinement, below average brakes, no gear indicator, sluggish gearing, average performance, poor authorised service centres and then there is rust, it's everywhere.

    I crossed himalaya with my desert storm and i absolutely loved it. I don't know the reason but it appeals every time i look at it.

    Verdict: if you want trouble free and performance oriented machines, look somewhere else. If you want the nostalgic thump, performance is not a mist and can give a lot of care to your bike, go for it.

    Bought it on 6 dec 2013. After 1 month i was unable to start the bike either by kick or by electric start. On complaining to my dealer(kaytee automobile) they lamented that you did not use bike regularly that's why its battery had drained and did not pay any heed start making excuses it has been 5 years as of now and the bike has same problem. Only buy this bike if you can use it regularly otherwise it will become a white elephant and will cast a slur on your pocket. Pick up is great, handling is the best part. 25 kmpl avg. Maintenance very expensive fuel pump 14000 piston 8500 injector 3000 and computer 28000. Servicing will cost near about 2500.
