For fuel saving we have to monitor 1.Air pressure , Front 32 psi , Rear 36 psi ,2.Every 1000 km engine oil should be topped up in INT 650 .3.In signals engine should to shut down. 4.

    Riding for mileage will take off the fun element in riding and can be detrimental to the health of the bike in the long run. A bike like this is not focused on mileage and neither should the owner be. I suggest you ride in a way that you enjoy the vehicle. You can still expect around 24KPL litre.

    Don't worry about mileage & just take care of the machine during the run in period. Changing gears at lower rpm & driving at higher gear at lower speeds may give better fuel efficiency but would adversely affect the engine so be careful & just be gentle with your new bike & let all the moving parts settle during the initial 2k kms

    I normally ride with my hearing tuned to the engine note. The rpm counter is also indicative of whether you're over revving the engine in a lower gear. I find I change to a higher gear faster and at a slightly lower rpm than 2500. This bike is a long geared bike, so she'll pull beautifully from 2500rpm upwards.
