    Purchased it on 7th feb from amba motors in vadodara and rpm was set very high when delivered and engine stopping frequently when clutch applied during downshifting. Took it to the service center of dealer and the mechanic saw that rpm showing on instrument cluster was around 1200 but in his diagnostic tool it indicated around 1800 at idle. He changed it to actual 1200 (fluctuates a bit) and it solved the engine stopping problem 80% but still stops sometimes randomly. 1st service was due after few days so told him about the same and mechanic suggested to wait and the problem should iron out by itself and in my 2 interactions with him (name maharaj) he sounded like someone who knows what he is saying and doing so I trusted him and took it back. He suggested that the bs6 engine requires to apply the choke in the morning after starting and leave it in idle for few seconds before riding which I followed and I would say the stopping problem is 90-95% resolved but not happy since it is risky as the YouTube guy says. Clocked 1000kms now but hoping to wait another month to see if it completely goes away or not before going to service station to adjust rpm further which I believe is behind the engine stopping issue Apart from that, heating issue even in feb so one can imagine what will happen in may. Even with the oil cooler shit it heats more than my Thunderbird twinspark even in short distancesThird thing is a tick tick sound after stopping which I have also come across in newer generation scooters that have a highly refined engine unlike RE so I wouldn't bother about it. That sound goes away after a minute of stoppingIn terms of riding, its good otherwise but I get a feeling that bs4 was better than bs6

    Got delivery of my new Himalayan bs6 variant recently and later noticed that the rear wheel was completely displaced towards left. It is hampering the balance of the bike and is also makes the bike look ugly. Rpm fluctuates a lot and engine stops occasionally while riding. Engine heats quickly. I hope this problem goes away after servicing. Few nuts are also missing, only bolts are placed. Did not expect manufacturing negligence from RE team, or may be I was unlucky to get a defective product.

    The main thing noticdafter

    The main thing i noticed after buying the bike in 2018 is the low quality parts and paint.After riding about 20k kms there are few things that i noticed.The engine oil looses its property really quickly in air cooled engine.After 1k the engine heat and vibration or buzz increases with hard gear shifts.The clutch is very heavy.In city bumper to bumper trafic the engine heat and heavy clutch is really uncomfortable.Speed beyond 100 is not favourable because apparent engine buzz on the handlebar, Seat and footpegs.Beyond 100 its still behaves like the old re buzzy engine.The acceleration is good but not that thrilling.Rollon acceleration from 60 to 100 on fifth gear is not that good its jerky.To pull the bike harder it need to downshift if its moving slower than 70 kmph.Even at speed breaker of the bike is slowed down below 20 it has to downshift to 2nd gear to attain speed quickly.It refuses to move forward even on 3ed gear.The main reason being the weight.The braking needs a whole lot of improvement.The part that really worn out fast is the accelerator cable.It becomes hard really soon.And the cup and cone bearing is a well known issue in the biker community.An average bike for the cost its not value for money.
