Tb 500 x - machine that never lets you down!

1 week ago by Sameer Bhargava140 views

This is amazing and very reliable bike suitable for long rides on indian roads. I have owned this bike for more than a year now and have completed 9000 kms. Recent (july 25-30th 2019) was a 5 day trip ahmedabad- goa-ahmedabad covering 2448 kms. Very comfortable seating & one can do 250-300 kms non stop covering average 70-72 kms/hour @ speed 80kmph. In spite of continuous & heavy rains the performance exceeded expectations with superb fuel efficiency of 38 km/ltr. The machine never lets you down in terms of power & reliability, overall experience was scintillating....Absolute 10/10. Service support at sarabhai motors ahmedabad was excellent with proactive recommendation to carry necessary spares during the trip like clutch/accelerator wire, fuse, spark plug & cap etc etc. Maintenance cost is extremely low. However two areas of improvement recommended (1) head light (2) brake can bring 10x improvement in value proposition of the bike.
