    Being a continental gt650 owner I feel the bike is comfortable for long rides. Myself (gt650) and my brother( bullet 500) took our ride from Chennai to kodaikanal (589km) and back to Chennai the next day together 1230km . I didn\'t have any pain in my wrists or back. Since we had stops only after 100-150 km i had my b**t paining( not so cushioned seats would be the reason ). It was comfortable even when you was riding up hill and it's obvious you will experience the wrists pain when you downhill because of your body weight being put on wrists that happens with all sporty positioned bikes. Cons is the fuel tank capacity where I had to refill tank for more number of times than usual. Note : my height 6.2 and weight 83 kg.

    For long ride it has some -ve points.All the support fall on palm. So riding for a long time, both hands may feel pain.Clutch is a little bit hard, for long riding left wrist may feel pain.But the power and smoothness of engine will help to forget the cons.....

    Major problem is the fuel indicator, Highly inaccurate.Also few false neutrals are present.Overall handling and power is really nice, Plus bike has lots of character.

    Mileage is great im averaging 27kpl on highways and 22 to 23kpl in traffic.Engine performance is great as well.But the suspension especially then front forks, Need a lot of performance upgrade.My fork springs are the worst.They are very soft for the weight of the bike.I had changed the oil grade from 10w to 20w and up the oil volume to 500ml for each tube and its still soft and wobbly on corners.The bike is not very stable when cornering.Straight iine, Well i can top at around 170kph🙂.

    Bike is super engine wise.But mileage in city is hardly i am getting 18kms per liter.On highway i am getting 25 to 30kms per liter.Maintenance is too expensive for daily commute.When you are taking you turn then need to be very careful if bike lean for 20degres the you will loss the control.After 120kms per hour mirrors are use less.On 110 you can curse it without any issues.After 140 there are minimal vibrations which can control.Finally bike i can rate 4.1/5.

    Average performance, And about 25kmpl on highway and 16kmpl in city, So i am going to add a supercharger in my bike and improve its mileage and performance
