    Worst platform 

    Zigwheels is the worst platform to check for any bike review.I personally do not recommend checking it here.Most of its reviews is done by those people who don't even on the bike.

    Perfect bike 

    An amazing bike for commute in the city, Has a very good mileage especially for the city commute.For a bike for such a low cost i have to say its the perfect bike for the price.The braking system is amazing.It has disk brakes with abs in the front and disk brakes in the rear wheels.I would suggest this bike if you are on a tight budget and want more mileage.

    Have been using a grazia 

    Have been using a grazia since 5 years now.Not really happy with the bike.The button start won't work most of the time.I complained at the service center and they said, You have to kick start it, If you start in the morning.If you use button start all the time, It is very likely that the bike engine stops in the middle of the road.If the weather is too cold, Then kick start may not work either.Had to get it to a local garage many times to get it started.My other scooter was a scooty which worked perfectly fine in all weather.

    Better for offroading and high power 

    After driving this 1250cc it's one of the best terrain bikes with better for offroading and high power capability. This is well known for its suspension that's fabulous. The service cost is average, and it wants some regular maintenance after 23-25 days because when you do offroading with this there are some bad effects too. Worth for money, and I will give this 4.5 out of 5.

    Unusually funky 

    The bike we have here is the special 40 years anniversary edition and that’s why it comes in this unusually funky (for a gs) black and yellow colour scheme.I like most of it, And even the dull gold handlebar doesn’t look out of place, But the bright yellow handguards feel a little plasticky and their colour might be a garish for some – nothing that can’t be easily fixed with a more rugged set of aftermarket barkbusters, Though.

    Hello all, I have brought this bike on january 2022, This was a best mileage bike in 125cc segment.Mileage is giving 60 to 65 in eco mode and 45 to 50 in power mode.Maintenance and service cost is also very low compare to other bikes.If your thought is mileage and look means just go for it.
