    Initially the bike was good 

    Initially the bike was good for one year.Later starting trouble comes both in button and kick start, Scooter will stops itself if we didn’t accelerate and even after did service on that it’s continued the same problem, Showroom said need to change some parts to fix the issue and it’s coming under warranty.Wondering why they did manufactured some unreliable parts.I never used a bike scooter like this kind of staring trouble.Suzuki need to improve on that.

    I got the car in November 

    I got the car in November 2021 and it's already pree booked took the delivery on Diwali. It's a topline 1.00 tsi manual and has driven it continuously till now and racked up about 21184 km. The ownership till now has been majorly uneventful and here is a list of pros and cons after a thorough drive:- 1. Brilliant engine - the engine seems to have settled down nicely and it performs brilliantly. Never will you feel that there is a lack of power. The refinement is also top class wherein I find myself looking at the tachometer to ensure the engine's switch is on/off. 2. Ergonomics - simply put, The ergonomics are spot on. The seating position is very comfortable. Everything falls right into your hand and you don't need to move about a lot. The seats themselves are wide and comfortable. It provides ventilated seats in the topline which is helpful in the summer of rajasthan.3.Handling - it handles very well for being a crossover. Much better than the Creta and seltos.4.Build quality - thankfully, Vw hasn't cut corners in build quality. It's right up there with what you expect from german cars. Safe and solid 5.Driving experience:- you always feel it's fun to drive and on highways, you feel it's all in your control.6.Average is 17 km if you drove above 100 and it's increased to 19 to 21 if you drove on 80-90. There is only one issue I faced the driver-side power window up-down issue which is somehow fixed by Volkswagen. Overall it's fun to drive a car.

    Cant describe this beast 

    Cant describe this beast in few words.This is my dream bike.And i bought it with all my savings last month.Looks- its road presence is the best in this segment mileage-15 kmpl.Which is good for an 900 cc.Breaking- it has got some amazing breaks.Even if you cruise at 150 it stops withini few seconds of applying breaks.Pickup- this beast will reach 0 to 100 in a matter of seconds.Overall i will rate this 9.5/10.

    Amazing 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.The only bad side for this bike is its body as it is not completely made out of metal this may have been done to reduce the weight of the bike.

    I purchased Jupiter 110 Classic 

    I purchased jupiter 110 classic model in 2021.This scooter offers a great driving experience with leather padded seat, The back person is also comfortable.The best thing which it offers according to me is that it doesn't feel like you are riding 110 cc scooter because it's engine feels quite powerful, Which is the trademark of tvs.The pickup is quite slow, It gives the mileage of 60-63 km/l.It body is made up of good quality steel due to which it seems powerful.It also produces a little more vibration but it is not a big problem.After sale services is also excellent you get some free services and some paid services at service centre of tvs.

    It was my first bike i got 

    It was my first bike i got it on 2nd april 2022 it was the best choice in segment people say its underpowered compared to ns 200 i have never felt it it has got better pickup than other bikes in segment because of one of the features that keeps the bike from lifting i think i made the right choice to get a bike with dual abs it literally saved my life tens of times i wouldnt want it any different the only problem was the service offered by tvs they never service your bike properly you always have to atleast tell them twice about the problem i missed work because the delivery was 2 hours late.I have serviced my bike 3 times never have i ever got it on time tip :while servicing if you have a problem do take a test drive to check of the issue was solved.

  • Activa 125
    Honda activa 125 FI BS6Driving 

    Honda activa 125 fi bs6 driving is very smooth, Good road grip.Disc brakes are much better than drum brakes.Mileage in city limits can be up to 48 kmpl.Suspension is good.Pick up is better than 110cc models.Build quality of metal parts is ok.Particularly fuel tank lid is worst quality.Anyone can break it easily.After sales service is worst in bangalore.No one cares about customer.Maintainance cost is high.You can't get it serviced at local garage.It is built such that customer must go to service centre for even very small problem.You won't get small parts.If tail lamp glass is broken, You need to replace entire set.Sometimes you may feel buying new scooter is cheaper than service.Accessories are not of good quality.Particularly guard.Battery will have frequent trouble.It won't last for 3 years also.Tata power battery given with scooter is very expensive and not up to the mark.If battery is weak, You won't get even headlights.Whatever premium features are given, They work only if battery is in full power.Overall worst after sales service.Mobile charger, Inner box could have been provided at this much expensive scooter.Overall a costly thing to own.

    Powerful motor 

    A lot can change in three years and a lot has since we last rode the ultraviolette f77 in 2019.The start-up from bengaluru took the pandemic as an opportunity to heavily overhaul the motorcycle, And it now has a battery pack that is more than double in size, A whole new chassis, A more powerful motor and a considerably bigger price tag.With the company finally ready to begin customer deliveries, We got to ride this bike and make sense of where it fits in the market.

    Got my Jawa maroon classic 

    Got my jawa maroon classic in july 2018.Didn't get to ride much.But whatever i rode, I was utterly disappointed.The vehicle is too heavy to pull or push.The rear wheel appears to spin hard.When asked the showroom mechanic, He says it is due to 'large rim'!!!!! the clutch lever is so hard it results in wrist aching.No solution from the mechanic.Sound is not impressive, And, In fact, It is on the irritating side.The sound that continues for sometime after the engine is stalled after a ride is even more irritating.Riding comfort for short distances is fine, But can be painful in long hauls.Pick up, Speed etc are ok.Now the major flaws.Within one year, The silencer and the leg guards started rusting, And surprisingly, Silencer developed holes too! so much so for the mahindra quality.Try parking the vehicle on centre stand.You should be a weight lifter!!!overall, The vehicle looks are awesome although do not replicate the original jawa.Quality of the materials is pathetic.Mechanics such as hardness in wheel spin, Clutch lever and centre stand are painful to the rider.Sound is unimpressive and irritating.Mileage is not great.

  • SP 125
    Honda SP 125 Is An All-rounder 

    Honda SP 125 is a great all-in-one bike from Honda. So it has a good reliability engine and also it gives good mileage of more than 65+ but it's not stable at high speeds and it's not a big con if you don't go on high speeds. It has thin tyres compared to other 125-segment bikes. But still, it's not a big problem if you don't do a cornering like close to touching the road. If you ride it gently then it's one of the finest sporty-look family bikes. It has a matte black color that looks amazing and the color doesn't fade out easily it doesn't have any graphics for this colored model. It has a digital meter with a trip a and b, an odometer, a side stands indicator, a service indicator, speed and fuel measurements, and time. It has an engine switch button and then a passing switch of a light. It's an all-rounder with big and comfortable seating for a family with a saree guard and chain guard helpful for family ladies and it barely costs around just 1 lakh. Honda SP 125 is a tough competitor with a reliable engine in the 125cc segment with a good exchange rate, sales and after-service, and features loaded.

    Good Commuter 

    As an owner I have a few things to say first about mileage is good on this machine close to 50 in the city don't have any complaints about the average, the engine is smooth and refined it does not vibrate even with the pillion sitting acceleration is on the good side as well, what I like most about events are storage space and comfort. Tons of storage options yous are getting as two front pockets and a good amount of under-seat storage and more than adequate space on the floorboard riding comfort is on the good side you get a nice wide seat and a good amount of sitting space for the pillion. About the negative there are certain things that I don't like first is tyre size and choice of tyre MRF tyre are the worst in terms of grip and the second bad choice is the rear 10-inch wheel balancing and riding confidence lacking just because of wheel size and tire selection, I am going to change tyre in the near future build quality of some parts could have been better because rear side got cracked with a touch of other bike's disc side panels and front panels are good in terms of quality but the black plastic thing on rear and on knee side is not that great. There is no drill instead you are getting always-on headlamps and especially headlamps are too much on the weaker side adequate light for daily commutes but not recommended for long runs or darker environments. Overall if you want to buy this scooter I will recommend it, minus a few changes its an excellent vehicle you can go for it.

    Rear seats 

    I have been waiting for this car since AutoExpo 2018. And I have become the 75th customer in entire country (and obviously in entire world) to buy this vehicle.But I have made inquiries into other cars in this segment. That is the competitors of Harrier. They are Jeep Compass and XUV 500. I have removed Hyundai Tucson from this list as it is heavily priced for the performance and features it provides. First I have eliminated XUV500. The car is extremely spacious and extremely light to handle easily. But I did not like 1. The looks of XUV500 W11, both exterior and interior compared to Harrier or Compass.2. Sound system is pretty ordinary too, compared to Compass and Harrier.3. The horse power is bit higher for XUV500 compared to Harrier (comes into play after a speed of 120kmph - which I have no intentions of crossing on Indian road conditions). 4. And it has got sunroof (which is awkwardly placed between the front and rear seats inaccessible to either row). 5. And it has got disc brakes for all wheels (which is not a necessity to me, until the braking does the sudden halts for me efficiently).Then I have had tough time to eliminate Jeep Compass. Because the built and looks of Compass are exceptionally great. The quality reminded me of Benz, BMW premium cars in terms of drive quality, NVH levels in cabin, suspension, heavy and safe feeling inside the car. Overall there are lots of premium touches for Compass.The reasons for eliminating Compass are:1. The base variant Compass Sport on road price is 20.5 lakhs - the same price as top variant of Harrier XZ. 2. The safety features provided in Harrier like ESP, Corner stability, Roll over mitigation control, 6 air bags are provide in compass starting from Compass Limited 4x4 edition which is priced at 27 lakhs on road.3. Even if I go with Compass Sport, basic requirements like good leather seats, reverse parking camera, reverse parking sensors, fog lamps, projector headlamps etc should be bought as additional accessories - despite shelling 20.5 lakhs.4. Space of Compass is enough for 5 people, but the rear seats are uncomfortably vertical, causing pains and cramps in abdomen for a bit fat people on long drives.So I bought Harrier XZ and got it delivered on Feb 10th 2019 and roamed more than 5000 kms till date. The following are pros and cons I have observed.Pros:1. The turning radius is very good. 2. The hydraulic steering gives wonderful control on the car. Even at low speeds, the steering is not heavy.3. Very comfortable seats even for a huge person. For long drives these are very apt.4. Excellent infotainment system. Sound system is extraordinary. The touch panel is very responsive and feather touch. Android Autoplay works brilliantly. The dashboard just behind steering is very helpful to check distance to empty, mileage the car is returning.5. Air conditioning for both front and rear is brilliant.6. Braking is excellent and adequate even in high speeds (though rear brakes are drum cylinder brakes). Had an unfortunate chance of testing Corner stability Program. A sudden turn by a biker on highway made me steer hard right. CSP immediatley kicked in and safely did the turn in opposite direction and turned me on to highway after crossing the obstacle.7. ESP programs all are efficient and highly useful. Because of the drive modes, I have an experience of driving 3 different cars as economy mode converts the car engine power to 110 PS, city mode to 125 PS and Sport mode to 140 PS.8. Enormous boot space - I have literally packed my family"s (consists of 5 adults) entire clothes packed into the boot. Nothing more to say.Cons:1. Front view of the car is bit dull and not so eye catching. The tata logo doesn"t help much either to cotradict. The car catches eye only when the side or back of the car comes into view.2. The right side ORVM clubbed with the A pillar creates a huge blindspot. Twice I almost had an accident, and once I gave a slight nudge to a scooterist.3. The Xenon HID projector headlamps are very bright, but when faced with beam lights of opposite vehicles, some blindspots are created. Need extra LED lights to be installed if you are regular in driving on highways, which don"t cover opposite vehicle beam lights.Overall Performance:The handling of the car in any road conditions is excellent in this price range. Whether it be braking, suspension or steering control, everything is exceptional about this car. Talk about comfort, and there is no better seating than Harrier (except of middle person in rear seat). The pickup of the car is magnificent in sport mode. Not so exciting in other driving modes. And coming to mileage, I have travelled from Vijayawada to Tirupati a distance of 450 kms and it cost me 30 litres of diesel at speeds of 120 kmph on highways. This care is built for long drives and it shows.After sale services:Surprised to say this, but the after sale service of Tata is very good. Very good is a huge leap from very bad in terms of servie of Tata in passenger vehicle segment. The approach to customer and his concerns has changed a lot. They have been provocative all the time in resolving small issues I had initially. And door delivery service, suggestions of what kind of service is apt for the car condition has been excellent so far. Overall, I am happy with customer service till date.

  • Altroz 2020-2023
    4.7
    Rear seats 

    Tata Altroz, The Gold Standard...Tata Altroz is the company's first venture in premium hatchback segment. This is safer and packed with features let's explore Ththis Gold Standard Car....×Design The design of the Tata Altroz doesnot resemble any car till now. Th e looks are given as a part of 'Impact 2.0' that is the design language followed by Tata Motors. From front the position of the fog lamps are seen a little above the regular placement. Even though the car gets projector headlights, they are not LEDs. The tripod stand like grill slots look appealing. This design is followed somewhere also.From the side we have certain elements to note. The piano black finish for the ORVMs and the positioning of turn indicators to the body are some of them. The rear door handle also have been moved to the C pillar. The 16 inch alloys looks well proportionate to the car.Towards the back side we can see the blacked taillights. Like I said above the rear end is also distinct with its cutting edges.Getting in is not a task at all. The doors open widely at 90° making it even easy for older people.The interior have a floating touch screen infotainment panel surrounded by an ambient light setup. Automatic AC controls below it and certain ports like the USB& AUX ports.The car have a semi-digital instrument cluster. Analog speedometer & digital tachometer and other informations. The seats are supportive and offer a good support. They also have a tripod base shaped arrangements on them. Both the front and rear seats have rear armrests. Also like the i20, this car also have rear AC vents. The boot is practical to have luggages for a family trip. You can also flip the back row seats fully to expand the luggage area. No 60:40 splitting is possible.×Driving and comfortThe car is powered by a 1.2 liter revotron petrol engine and a 1.5 liter revotorq diesel engine both are BS6 complaintand are mated to a 5 speed manual gear box no automatic till now but will be released in coming dates.The petrol motor gives 85hp and 113 nm, its a three cylinder engine. But despite being a 3 cylinder mill, the engine is punchy enough to pull the car due to its light weight This motor is seen in the nexon also. The diesel motor is a 4 cylinder one seen in the nexon. But it is detuned to 89hp and 200 nm this is the kingmaker 'the gold standard' as said by Tata. This is a punchy motor since the torque output is got from a very low RPM, this is peppy enough and enthusiastic to drive. On my drive I got a mileage of 16-18 kmpl for diesel.Both these engines have two driving options City& Eco. No sports mode, don't know why Tata avoided it. The mode selector is seen behind the gear lever. This mode. hanges the theme from blue to green.Top trim also gets cruise control setup.The suspension is good enough but you can feel the comfort when you glide over a pathole. Brilliant work by Tata engineers.×InfotainmentThe car is packed with Harman's 6 speaker system.The floating touch screen is easy to use compared to previous Tata cars. The sound quality is brilliant and is class leading. You can customize the theme colour as your wish.×Variants Altroz is available from base xe, xm, xt, xz& xz(o) . The car also packs with various options that includes factory fitted customisations they are Rhythm,Style,Luxe& Urban. These options are available on various levels.×Safety Tata means safety this car scored 5 stars in global NCAP being the second Indian car to scor it and the first car in its segment to score so. The company packs the car with 2 airbags ABS& EBD as standard. ×For whom is this car???If you want your family to travel in comfort& safe. Then you can choose this car. If you are an enthusiastic driver and all you need is a diesel hatchback then you may go for this car. Because this is the only car in its segment to offer a BS-6 complaint diesel engine.×Comparing with competitorsMaruti Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20, Honda Jazz, VW Polo are the main competetors.Comparing with them we see that Altroz is stronger than Baleno and its diesel engine is excellent, but coming to petrol baleno scores the more.The i20 is the feature rich car here it also have Hyundai's reliability and offers a 6th gear that its rivals misses. The 1.4litre CRDI diesel and 1.2litre petrol engines are also appreciable. Honda Jazz may be the car with lower specs. But the magic that honda does with its petrol mill is something that none can match with.VW Polo is the synonym of sportiness inthis segment its diesel engine having a nice performance too. But taking care of a VW car is a bit tasky. ×VerdictThe Tata Altroz is a car that a common man can buy it is sufficiently powerfull (diesei motor), and the best in safety. It also offers segment first features like floating screen& ambient lighting

  • Ciaz
    Car forward 

    I have been using the Suzuki Ciaz Alpha petrol variant (bs4) for the past three years, And I have completed a total of over 25000 km. The journey was always royal except for some minor incidents which blew away the fun of riding this car. Let me split my review into three parts: the good, The bad and the ugly Good:- 1. The car looks royal and has a pretty good road presence. The dimensions are pretty large, Which provides luxurious leg space and comfort. The second-row seats three people easily without any discomfort. The advantage is that Ciaz doesn't have a bump in the middle of the rear seat, Which makes sitting comfortably. 2. The overall look is pretty, Both front and rear lights are classy. Though the rear light feels like a copycat of BMW, The rear led lights to light up decently. The front light is white led, Which provides better illumination than any other car in the segment. The auto lighting feature, Provided as a feature identifies the range and height of the illumination to be provided on the road. The disadvantage of this is noted in 'the bad'. 3. The ride is joyful, calm, and luxurious. On highways, It feels like floating and moves smoothly, Which feels good. 4. The rear camera clarity is very good, Which gives similar to the 180-degree viewport. 5. The interior of the car looks premium. The premium glossy finish, The wood-like panel in the dashboard, Tan leather seats looks and feels premium. The seats are luxurious, soft and comfortable. Bad:- 1. The auto illuminating light has the disadvantage of auto-adjusting the length and height setting of the illumination. Even when flashing the light or in a high beam, the height of the light is very low. So, If the vehicle from the opposite direction throws light at your eyes, You cannot warn them as your high beam is similar to their low beam. 2. Sound insulation is very bad. You can hear everything outside. Even people talking outside can be heard clearly from inside even if all the windows are closed. The same is the case with the inside voice going out. 3. The Ciaz boasts a premium 4 speaker music system. Which is an average music system. There is an issue with clarity on high and low pitched music. 4. There is an issue with the gear system. Occasionally, The gear doesn't go to the reverse mode. You will have to move the car forward a bit, then stop and put the car in reverse. I initially thought the issue was specific to my car alone, But talking to other Ciaz owners proved that, It was a common issue. 5. You will be offered 20+kmpl mileage by the salesman when buying the car. Never fall for that. I have never got a mileage above 17 km even in eco mode.6.As the dashboard is painted glossy black and the slanting of the windshield is more, When you are driving towards the sunlight, You are blinded as the dashboard is mirrored on the windshield, And you will not be able to see anything. Ugly:- 1. If you leave the car in bright sunlight for a couple of hours, When you get in the car, You will feel a salty, Nauseating smell coming from the air vents. This will go only after turning on the air conditioner for a couple of minutes. 2. Though the car boasts a 1500cc engine, As the weight of the car is more. The power delivery is less. Even on highways, Cars of the lower segment will overtake you very easily leaving you far behind. But, Considering the peaceful and calm ride, That can be ignored. Verdict:- As an overall package. The Ciaz Alpha is a 'not-so-premium' comfortable car to travel long distances, and you will definitely love it.

    The Car Has Enough Power 

    The driving experience is very good, if not the best. The car has enough power and can reach 100+kmph speed with ease on highways. This is the best-built car from Maruti. It has many safety features. I have driven 60km on city and highway as well. It is a treat to drive this in any kind of road condition. It glides over bad roads. The brakes are amazing! I have 1-2 close calls and had to panic brake, The car performed supremely well and stopped without any fuss. Kudos to Maruti. Best things: drive quality is very good, if not the best very spacious insides out. The rear seat space and the boot space are more than enough. 180 mm ground clearance is perfect for all kinds of road conditions, mid-range and high range are pretty good for spirited driving on empty stretches of road (when it is safe to drive fast). All-around visibility is good from the driving seat and no real blind spots anywhere. Legroom, Headroom, Knee room, and shoulder room are all excellent. The music setup is decent and I have not felt the need to replace the speakers yet. Android Auto works like a charm, rear seat drive quality is excellent. Anyone who has travelled with me in the rear seat has appreciated the drive quality, Especially on bad roads and long-distance drives. Cruise control works really well. I have used the feature many times on long stretches of highways. Fuel efficiency is outstanding! Interior quality could have been a bit more premium, although not a deal breaker. The touch screen and the overall setup could have been bigger and better. In terms of screen size and features, rear AC vents missing, even in the top-end variant. Turbo lag in lower RPM range can be irritating in bumper-to-bumper traffic, some nice to-have features are missing at 11+ lakhs price point such as rear ac vents, sunroof (must for a such a big spacious car), hill hold control, At least 4 airbags, engine noise at higher RPM. Could have been more controlled. Major issue: the coolant valve had failed at around 20, 000km in the middle of a highway and the coolant had started leaking on the road. However, That turned out to be an issue with almost all S-Cross sold in the 2015 batch. Build quality: I once banged a Tata Vista from behind because the driver panicked braked and stopped at 70kmph speed on a busy road. I had no time to stop at a safe distance. There was a big thud sound. However, there was literally no damage to the S-Cross, except a minor dent on the front bumper and one small scratch.

  • Harrier 2019-2023
    5.0
    Rear seats 

    I have been waiting for this car since AutoExpo 2018. And I have become the 75th customer in entire country (and obviously in entire world) to buy this vehicle.But I have made inquiries into other cars in this segment. That is the competitors of Harrier. They are Jeep Compass and XUV 500. I have removed Hyundai Tucson from this list as it is heavily priced for the performance and features it provides. First I have eliminated XUV500. The car is extremely spacious and extremely light to handle easily. But I did not like 1. The looks of XUV500 W11, both exterior and interior compared to Harrier or Compass.2. Sound system is pretty ordinary too, compared to Compass and Harrier.3. The horse power is bit higher for XUV500 compared to Harrier (comes into play after a speed of 120kmph - which I have no intentions of crossing on Indian road conditions). 4. And it has got sunroof (which is awkwardly placed between the front and rear seats inaccessible to either row). 5. And it has got disc brakes for all wheels (which is not a necessity to me, until the braking does the sudden halts for me efficiently).Then I have had tough time to eliminate Jeep Compass. Because the built and looks of Compass are exceptionally great. The quality reminded me of Benz, BMW premium cars in terms of drive quality, NVH levels in cabin, suspension, heavy and safe feeling inside the car. Overall there are lots of premium touches for Compass.The reasons for eliminating Compass are:1. The base variant Compass Sport on road price is 20.5 lakhs - the same price as top variant of Harrier XZ. 2. The safety features provided in Harrier like ESP, Corner stability, Roll over mitigation control, 6 air bags are provide in compass starting from Compass Limited 4x4 edition which is priced at 27 lakhs on road.3. Even if I go with Compass Sport, basic requirements like good leather seats, reverse parking camera, reverse parking sensors, fog lamps, projector headlamps etc should be bought as additional accessories - despite shelling 20.5 lakhs.4. Space of Compass is enough for 5 people, but the rear seats are uncomfortably vertical, causing pains and cramps in abdomen for a bit fat people on long drives.So I bought Harrier XZ and got it delivered on Feb 10th 2019 and roamed more than 5000 kms till date. The following are pros and cons I have observed.Pros:1. The turning radius is very good. 2. The hydraulic steering gives wonderful control on the car. Even at low speeds, the steering is not heavy.3. Very comfortable seats even for a huge person. For long drives these are very apt.4. Excellent infotainment system. Sound system is extraordinary. The touch panel is very responsive and feather touch. Android Autoplay works brilliantly. The dashboard just behind steering is very helpful to check distance to empty, mileage the car is returning.5. Air conditioning for both front and rear is brilliant.6. Braking is excellent and adequate even in high speeds (though rear brakes are drum cylinder brakes). Had an unfortunate chance of testing Corner stability Program. A sudden turn by a biker on highway made me steer hard right. CSP immediatley kicked in and safely did the turn in opposite direction and turned me on to highway after crossing the obstacle.7. ESP programs all are efficient and highly useful. Because of the drive modes, I have an experience of driving 3 different cars as economy mode converts the car engine power to 110 PS, city mode to 125 PS and Sport mode to 140 PS.8. Enormous boot space - I have literally packed my family"s (consists of 5 adults) entire clothes packed into the boot. Nothing more to say.Cons:1. Front view of the car is bit dull and not so eye catching. The tata logo doesn"t help much either to cotradict. The car catches eye only when the side or back of the car comes into view.2. The right side ORVM clubbed with the A pillar creates a huge blindspot. Twice I almost had an accident, and once I gave a slight nudge to a scooterist.3. The Xenon HID projector headlamps are very bright, but when faced with beam lights of opposite vehicles, some blindspots are created. Need extra LED lights to be installed if you are regular in driving on highways, which don"t cover opposite vehicle beam lights.Overall Performance:The handling of the car in any road conditions is excellent in this price range. Whether it be braking, suspension or steering control, everything is exceptional about this car. Talk about comfort, and there is no better seating than Harrier (except of middle person in rear seat). The pickup of the car is magnificent in sport mode. Not so exciting in other driving modes. And coming to mileage, I have travelled from Vijayawada to Tirupati a distance of 450 kms and it cost me 30 litres of diesel at speeds of 120 kmph on highways. This care is built for long drives and it shows.After sale services:Surprised to say this, but the after sale service of Tata is very good. Very good is a huge leap from very bad in terms of servie of Tata in passenger vehicle segment. The approach to customer and his concerns has changed a lot. They have been provocative all the time in resolving small issues I had initially. And door delivery service, suggestions of what kind of service is apt for the car condition has been excellent so far. Overall, I am happy with customer service till date.

  • Altroz 2020-2023
    4.7
    Rear seats 

    Tata Altroz, The Gold Standard...Tata Altroz is the company's first venture in premium hatchback segment. This is safer and packed with features let's explore Ththis Gold Standard Car....×Design The design of the Tata Altroz doesnot resemble any car till now. Th e looks are given as a part of 'Impact 2.0' that is the design language followed by Tata Motors. From front the position of the fog lamps are seen a little above the regular placement. Even though the car gets projector headlights, they are not LEDs. The tripod stand like grill slots look appealing. This design is followed somewhere also.From the side we have certain elements to note. The piano black finish for the ORVMs and the positioning of turn indicators to the body are some of them. The rear door handle also have been moved to the C pillar. The 16 inch alloys looks well proportionate to the car.Towards the back side we can see the blacked taillights. Like I said above the rear end is also distinct with its cutting edges.Getting in is not a task at all. The doors open widely at 90° making it even easy for older people.The interior have a floating touch screen infotainment panel surrounded by an ambient light setup. Automatic AC controls below it and certain ports like the USB& AUX ports.The car have a semi-digital instrument cluster. Analog speedometer & digital tachometer and other informations. The seats are supportive and offer a good support. They also have a tripod base shaped arrangements on them. Both the front and rear seats have rear armrests. Also like the i20, this car also have rear AC vents. The boot is practical to have luggages for a family trip. You can also flip the back row seats fully to expand the luggage area. No 60:40 splitting is possible.×Driving and comfortThe car is powered by a 1.2 liter revotron petrol engine and a 1.5 liter revotorq diesel engine both are BS6 complaintand are mated to a 5 speed manual gear box no automatic till now but will be released in coming dates.The petrol motor gives 85hp and 113 nm, its a three cylinder engine. But despite being a 3 cylinder mill, the engine is punchy enough to pull the car due to its light weight This motor is seen in the nexon also. The diesel motor is a 4 cylinder one seen in the nexon. But it is detuned to 89hp and 200 nm this is the kingmaker 'the gold standard' as said by Tata. This is a punchy motor since the torque output is got from a very low RPM, this is peppy enough and enthusiastic to drive. On my drive I got a mileage of 16-18 kmpl for diesel.Both these engines have two driving options City& Eco. No sports mode, don't know why Tata avoided it. The mode selector is seen behind the gear lever. This mode. hanges the theme from blue to green.Top trim also gets cruise control setup.The suspension is good enough but you can feel the comfort when you glide over a pathole. Brilliant work by Tata engineers.×InfotainmentThe car is packed with Harman's 6 speaker system.The floating touch screen is easy to use compared to previous Tata cars. The sound quality is brilliant and is class leading. You can customize the theme colour as your wish.×Variants Altroz is available from base xe, xm, xt, xz& xz(o) . The car also packs with various options that includes factory fitted customisations they are Rhythm,Style,Luxe& Urban. These options are available on various levels.×Safety Tata means safety this car scored 5 stars in global NCAP being the second Indian car to scor it and the first car in its segment to score so. The company packs the car with 2 airbags ABS& EBD as standard. ×For whom is this car???If you want your family to travel in comfort& safe. Then you can choose this car. If you are an enthusiastic driver and all you need is a diesel hatchback then you may go for this car. Because this is the only car in its segment to offer a BS-6 complaint diesel engine.×Comparing with competitorsMaruti Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20, Honda Jazz, VW Polo are the main competetors.Comparing with them we see that Altroz is stronger than Baleno and its diesel engine is excellent, but coming to petrol baleno scores the more.The i20 is the feature rich car here it also have Hyundai's reliability and offers a 6th gear that its rivals misses. The 1.4litre CRDI diesel and 1.2litre petrol engines are also appreciable. Honda Jazz may be the car with lower specs. But the magic that honda does with its petrol mill is something that none can match with.VW Polo is the synonym of sportiness inthis segment its diesel engine having a nice performance too. But taking care of a VW car is a bit tasky. ×VerdictThe Tata Altroz is a car that a common man can buy it is sufficiently powerfull (diesei motor), and the best in safety. It also offers segment first features like floating screen& ambient lighting

    The Car Has Enough Power 

    The driving experience is very good, if not the best. The car has enough power and can reach 100+kmph speed with ease on highways. This is the best-built car from Maruti. It has many safety features. I have driven 60km on city and highway as well. It is a treat to drive this in any kind of road condition. It glides over bad roads. The brakes are amazing! I have 1-2 close calls and had to panic brake, The car performed supremely well and stopped without any fuss. Kudos to Maruti. Best things: drive quality is very good, if not the best very spacious insides out. The rear seat space and the boot space are more than enough. 180 mm ground clearance is perfect for all kinds of road conditions, mid-range and high range are pretty good for spirited driving on empty stretches of road (when it is safe to drive fast). All-around visibility is good from the driving seat and no real blind spots anywhere. Legroom, Headroom, Knee room, and shoulder room are all excellent. The music setup is decent and I have not felt the need to replace the speakers yet. Android Auto works like a charm, rear seat drive quality is excellent. Anyone who has travelled with me in the rear seat has appreciated the drive quality, Especially on bad roads and long-distance drives. Cruise control works really well. I have used the feature many times on long stretches of highways. Fuel efficiency is outstanding! Interior quality could have been a bit more premium, although not a deal breaker. The touch screen and the overall setup could have been bigger and better. In terms of screen size and features, rear AC vents missing, even in the top-end variant. Turbo lag in lower RPM range can be irritating in bumper-to-bumper traffic, some nice to-have features are missing at 11+ lakhs price point such as rear ac vents, sunroof (must for a such a big spacious car), hill hold control, At least 4 airbags, engine noise at higher RPM. Could have been more controlled. Major issue: the coolant valve had failed at around 20, 000km in the middle of a highway and the coolant had started leaking on the road. However, That turned out to be an issue with almost all S-Cross sold in the 2015 batch. Build quality: I once banged a Tata Vista from behind because the driver panicked braked and stopped at 70kmph speed on a busy road. I had no time to stop at a safe distance. There was a big thud sound. However, there was literally no damage to the S-Cross, except a minor dent on the front bumper and one small scratch.

  • Compass 2017-2021
    Experience 

    Currently own a 2018 jeep compass limited 2.0l manual diesel. This is the first non-sedan and hatchback vehicle we picked up, moved from a 1st generation Maruti Swift with the 1.3l fiat engine which was rebranded as this under Maruti, that car was our go-to for most highway commutes owed to its stability due to the weight and also the power that engine had to offer. Both dad and I clocked nearly 1.2lkms on that do before we parted with it. Did consider a few other options we had at the time, The first gen Creta, The Ford Eco Sport, S-cross, Duster, and Terrano. Test drove all the cars but none of them checked all the boxes we had for the successor. Jeep was just about to set foot into the market back then, spoke to dad about it, had lengthy conversations about the vehicle and all features on offer, and went on 3 different test drives over a span of 6 months, and dad finally was convinced that this was the right choice. Had a clutch assembly issue, with the response being too hard to use for stop-and-go city commutes and also the highways, all the early released models of 2018 got a replacement from the dealerships free of charge. Our car has seen a fair amount of incidents which could have been far worse than what they were, only due to the importance that the manufacturers give to the built quality of the vehicle, this car has seen us through good days and rough ones, but always brought us back home in one piece. Talking about the drive experience is key. This vehicle was built for the highways and it performs butter smooth, after you've touched 5th gear in flowing traffic, all you're going to use the clutch for is to upshift to 6th when you've gained and reached the speed you want to be consistently driving at, and on occasion downshift just to the 5th if it drops to 60kmph or so because the engine will smoothly pick up speed without having to stress the engine much by shifting through many gears, churning revs and dumping the clutch to get a quick boost. Not saying you can't do that, but scenarios that need you doing that will be very few. The maintenance and servicing are on the pricey end of affairs, not so bad that it's bleeding your pocket dry every time you drop by the service centers. Another thing to mention would be the maintenance charges post the warranty period, our car hasn't really given us any problems thus far on the mechanical side of things, ( which is something jeep is infamous for, most people steer away from it because of the reliability issues on the long run) its seen one break pad change recently. Its closing in on the clutch replacement period but, From what our service exec says, The clutch is in great condition right now and we might only need to look into a replacement around the 75k mark, they have been keeping an eye on the clutch assembly from the 40k mark because most of their other users saw replacements at the 45-50k mark. Our car is at 56k as I write this. I can't really speak for the automatic DCT transmissions, but I'm sure it is a synonymous experience, maybe even smoother for stop-and-go traffic.

    Tried and tested, future proof 

    I skipped the upgrade to suv styled non suv nexon, Kiger, Magnite temptation and followed the traditional1route of upgrading from a hatchback to a sub 4 meter sedan honda amaze vx cvt petrol.There are couple of1reasons.Firstly the 1.2 liter cvt engine of honda is a tried and tested no-brainer.This is a future proof engine.Initially i booked1a nexon amt.But decided to pull out when i came across a report by a nexon owner from waynad, Whose nexon amt1stalled suddenly, That too after midnight.It was a struggle even though he got road side assistance and many1similar stalling incidents.Driving experience: the cvt is smooth honda amaze has a very good road presence.The1large front good contributes to this.It definitely doesnt look like a sub 4 meter sedan and the rear design1gives the vibes of a yesteryear honda accord.This car gives a very mature driving feel, It is never in a1hurry, Picking up gradually.The comfort level of the car is good with ample legroom and overhead space.The1adjustable driver seat ensures good road visibility.The contoured bucket seat adds to the comfort.The best1thing about the car is how honda has managed to provide an all rounder without compromising on looks, Comfort,1Mileage along with pricing and honda reliability.The boot space of 420 liters is good.Optimum space1utilization by honda.Worst: as i have mentioned earlier, Honda has tuned this cvt for a laid back driving1experience with comfort, Mileage etc.But this also packs a negative for some, If you expect quick pickup and1adrenaline rush in signal stops and sudden overtaking, The car asks you to relax, The cvt takes its time to1pickup speed.The manual honda amaze should be good with the pickup part.The non adjustable rear passenger1headrest is another con.Honda amaze has a surprising mileage performance.I drive in a highway where most part1of the road is single lane.In such a highway i got a mileage of upto 18 kmpl, The mileage indicator also helps to maintain consistent speed.In city traffic i get anywhere between 13-15, Considering factors like breaking, Speed, Congestion etc.So far the highest mileage i got was 21 kmpl for a 6 am drive of 105 kms.Far better than my hyundai i10 kappa2 2012 model.I have drove for 1.3 years and so far no vibrations or any other issues.Build quality is good with a 4 star crash test1rating.The child rating is only 2.Sometimes you can slightly hear outside noise in traffic.I felt the car1needed more under body cover in the engine area.When i open the engine bay, I get the feel that the engine has1a completely exposed bottom end.I am just nitpicking here :)the after sale support is good so far.They call a1week before service date, To confirm the dates and on time delivery after service.Affordable service costs is1another plus.Final verdict: i accept that it doesn't have many shiny gimmicks that the so called suv styled1non suv cars have, But under the good it's a honda, Well balanced, Mature and reliable in all aspects.In 2022,1If you still prefer the good old sub 4 meter sedan vibes over cars with suv imposer syndrome, Honda amaze is a1good buy.

  • Vento 2015-2019
    4.3
    Adequate bolstering 

    My Volkswagen Vento (diesel automatic and 2015 make) experience after driving 120, 000 kms.The Vento has an amazing driving experience that makes you carve corners. What I like the most about this car is its brilliant gearbox. The two modes of the gearbox are very smooth and refined with lighting quick shifts. The sporty feel of the car, the efficiency of the TDS engine and the quick-shifting DSG make it a mile muncher. Its been 7 years and I still find reasons to drive this amazing sturdy and safe car. In terms of the comfort level, The front seats are quite supportive with adequate bolstering. The rear seats are also good, However, The legroom is a little bit less compared to other cars in its segment. In fact, it is nowhere close to what my humble Honda Jazz offers. The best thing about Vento is that nobody can beat the driving pleasure. The sporty feel that it gives you is rare in this price bracket. The excellent boot space of 490 ltr. More than enough space for a family trip. Very safe and good build quality. Comes with dual front airbags. Using this car for more than 7 years but still there is no vibrations or rattling sound or any other plastic issues. Build quality is very good as compared to Honda and Maruti. The steering weighs up very well when you gain speed. Even after good sporty driving pleasure does not mean you get less average. In the city, you get an average of 18-19 km. While on the highway you get a very good average of around 25 kmpl. I have personally travelled from Pune to Udaipur (885kms) to pali (186kms) to Udaipur(186 kms). Overall 1200 kms in a full tank of 55 ltr.After-sales service is good. The service is prompt. The worst thing about Vento is it has fewer features than other cars like Maruti, Honda and Hyundai, but to me build quality and driving pleasure is more important than feature-rich cars which compromise on performance and handling. The maintenance cost is quite high. Below a lakh km, I was paying around 15k and 27k alternatively for the annual service. No major part changed during this period but after 1 lakh km in Dec 2020, a series of things happened. At 1.1 lakh km, I was driving the car and suddenly the flywheel got damaged. Had to tow the car and after analysis, They said both the flywheel and the multi-clutch were damaged. Got a bill of 97k. DSGs are unreliable. After driving another 7-8 months, I was getting another gearbox related issue in which the car was not moving in the drive mode. When analyzed they said, mechatronic is damaged. Need to change it. Got another bill of around 80k related to the gearbox in a year's time. Ac performance is quite sub-par. In a state like Rajasthan, on a hot day, the car struggles to cool the cabin. The area which requires improvement in the car is its service cost. Service costs should be lower. Parts cost is very high, especially the imported ones. The company should provide good tyres. Volkswagen group should come with robust ACs in a tropical country like India.

  • Ignis
    4.0
    Peppy driving 

    Owning/Driving Ignis Zeta MT from last 14 months, crossed 9500 kms on odometer till now. My buying experience:As I had already owned secondhand Maruti 800cc and driven Alto K10 (1000 cc) cars in the past & now wish to buy a new car for the first time, I was looking for a 1200cc car, within budget of 6.5 lakhs, so shortlisted Swift, New Hyundai Santro, Tata Tiago and Ignis. Took test drive of each of them. Facelift Swift VXI was overall a good car but costing at around 7.06 lakhs OTR, Santro Asta test drive was not satisfactory. Tata Tiago XZ was at 6.30 lakhs OTR but had 3 cylinder engine.Further I found that Maruti Swift, Baleno, Dezire & Ignis have the same K12B petrol engine generating similar power.Due to heavy year-end discounts the Ignis Zeta MT was costing me at 6.39 lakhs OTR. In this price I was getting a 1200cc 4 cylinder engine car with 15 inch Alloy Wheels, Push Button Start, Body Cladding, Blue tooth & steering control enabled music system having 6 speakers, Fog lamps, Rear-defoggers with wash wipers, Auto folding ORVM, Extended warranty, NEXA Card & Fast tag. Unbeatable deal, So ignored all other options and finalised the Ignis.From test drive to delivery of the car, NEXA dealership have given me a very nice and memorable experience.Pros:Peppy driving.Standard safety features across all variants.Very good mileage, 14-15 in city & 20-22 on highways with AC on.High ground clearance.Sufficient head and leg room.Easy ingress and outgress.Low maintenance & service cost.Many small features in Ignis such as Door handle design, adjustable head rests on all seats, 60:40 foldable rear seat, Split tail light, bigger tyres, etc are found only in costlier and premium cars.Cons:Rear design of the car is very unique but not appealing to the masses and it is the sole reason behind low sales figures of the Ignis.Body panels are weaker compared to other cars as it easily get dents from hitting of small stones on the road.Somewhat stiff suspension.Servicing at regular Maruti Dealership, so no NEXA experience after purchase.My experience with the car:My routine driving is on poor roads. I have also taken a long road trip with family in my Ignis. But no problem at all.First 3 services within a year are free from Maruti. It costs me around 3600rs. for the oil change, wheel balancing alignment and minor spares till today.From my own experience I can say that Ignis is the Best car at this price point. I recommend to buy NEXA card, as the whole cost of the card can be redeemed within a year.Extended warranty is a gimmick and may be avoided.

    Unpaved rubble 

    I have been using graphite matte dominar 2017 for three years now, While earlier i used it for city ride in delhi for 20kms a day for 18-20 months, Later i started touring on it once i had confidence on bike.I have done delhi to jaisalmer round trip of 2500 kms within 7 days and that did tested the bike on paved highway and unpaved rubble way on the way.Touring experience - talking about the performance, Long touring is effortless, Did 700kms in a day while riding time was 8 hrs in total, I cruised at 120-130 for an hour and then kept myself up and running at 100kmph for most of the day, I have done 20k till now i and stock tyres are still good to go for another 5-7k.While one of the bike broke down on the way to jaisalmer, My bike performed with ease.The problem arrived when we were heading back to delhi on 7th day, Brakes were wobbling and hadto drive with limited speeds of 80-90 km that too on open highway from jaipur to delhi.This problem took atleast 3 service centre visits, With 3 different dealerships and only mahipalpur bagga link service centre in new delhi offered the good solution.Handle crank was loose.So there was a j**k on bike while braking.Long term problems -another problem i faced was rear brakes, The master cylinder in first version of 2017 isn't great and brake gets air somehow in 6 months.I'm not sure of comparison with other bikes though.After 10k kms, It took 4 hrs to pump back the pressure without changing disks or calipers and brakes are still working fine.Then only brakes were back to stock condition.Thanks to kalkaji service station in new delhi.They do charge irrelevant prices.Suspension - talking about suspension, It is good for paved road and if you are driving it for the first time you will feel heaviness and harder suspension in city traffic.Off road performance is also good but in rains and mud, You need to change your tyre according to the terrain you ride.Stock tyre feels slippery during rains and it doesn't work well in mud, Ofcourse it is a dry track tyre from mrf.City driving - driving in city, I felt no hesitation in rush hours in delhi, Its pretty good to handle in such traffic.Economy takes a hit in traffic, It goes down to 18-19kmpl (i did revved hard at 7k rpm level at low gears to check the difference in economy).When i'm riding at 3-4k rpm at higher gears, Let's say 45kmph @ 3rd gear.Fuel economy jumps to 26-28 kmpl.Quite considerable difference there.Mileage - as i mentioned, City riding at high revs, Will cost you fuel economy dearly.You may get 21-24kmpl in such riding style.At highway i touched 31.67kmpl on jaipur-delhi highway which is absolute paradise for riders.On mountains it will give you 26-28kmpl and oh boy don't even try to turn engine off on hills, Unless you want to crash (just some riding guidance there ;))headlamps-now talking about the headlamps, If you compare it with any other bike, These are super cool but in comparison with ktm range, They seem dull, Especially the dipper.This can be improved since dominar needs good dipper because it is a highway bike than ktm.Clutch is on tough side, I had to recalibrate it according to my style.Ktm has live in wire throttle which is a charm seriously.Gear pad also feels low quality and get loosen up.Troubles while shifting gear.Got it changed at 10k but i guess its good enough.Ride style - im stock condition, Without installing handle bar raisers, It feels little committed, Lesser than ktm duke but it will put strain on your shoulders and wrists and you are bound to get carpel tunnel syndrome if you ride in stock condition on long tours.Advice - get suspension raisers or handle bar raisers if you want effortless riding experience.It does wonders.Seat - many people suggested me to modify my seat but i didnt.I weigh 59kg at 5'7.5' height so it is really comfortable for me im stock condition.You may want to modify if you weigh more than 65-70kgs.Pillion seat of 2017 model makes a lot of noise, Maybe the plastic component has started to loosen s bit over the time.Console - acrylic panel with abs fixtures.It is a scratch magnet, I changed it just now as it started getting c***k marks due to temperature changes over longer period of bike usage.I would recommend, Get it laminated as soon as you get your bike.Otherwise the console has good features, Enough to let you know everything you want for a bike console.Maintenance - it will give you 1.5-2.5₹ per km running cost in three years and if you fond of accessories like me, You will get around 3.5₹ running cost per km over 20k kms.These costs are bound to reduce if you do a lot of long tours due to significant reduction in fuel economy on highways.Exhaust - i prefer the 2017 exhaust note but new one is really heavy and may give you superbike feel.Hardware of older moto is really tough, Can take a 2cm deep hit without affecting the exhaust console.And you can get it repaired for as low as 20₹ form local welding workshop.Else it costs just 500₹ from service centre, If available.Mine is still to get delivered even after a month of booking.Accessories - i have installed few touring mods like crash guards, Knuckle guards etc.With did saved me from an accident i had at 50kmph.Also i got mobile charger bolt, Ram mount, Carbon racing wind shield with braces which vibrates but helps a lot on highway during wind blasts and wind drafts.I changed the mirrors to the new version of 2019 ug model.Also planning to change the tank body to new ug model's graphite matte.I also installed flashers from simtac and auxiliary lights with relay harness.Cleaning and maintenance - i wash and polish it every alternate weekend, Also depends on the amount of mud or dust.And semi annual ceramic coating maintenance to maintain the paint.I like shiny graphite than matte.Things to know -always install new relay harness with auxiliary lights.Don't connect then directly in main harness just to avoid any future complication with your stock components.Choose metal frame knuckle guard, And good quality thick wind shield for better protection.Crash guards are must and there shouldn't be any compromise with that.Rev low and gears high will give you good economy and engine will last longer than expectation.Keep a check on tyres tread as per your riding style.Throttle and clutch wire can be adjusted as per your style.Don't try to run over a speed breaker at high speed, Will damage your alloy rims.And that is an unwanted expense.Summary -good bike for city, One of the best power cruiser in mid range for highways.Powerful workhorse if maintained properly.

    Smaller tank 

    Buying experience: I brought this scooter in the year 2010 and now it's 2019 almost 9 years apart , the showrooms staff were good, I got the scooter promptly as they had a good collection of all the colours, mine is blazing red. Important highlights of this scooter included : 1) FIRST scooter made in india with digital colourful multifunctional speedometer includes functions such as TRIPA ,TRIP B ,CLOCK , 0-50km in how many second , 50 meters in how many seconds and not just that 7+ different colours with 3 different styles of colour changing : singular changing, slow dimming automatic changing mode and automatic single colour changing ! There is tachometer like a sports bike , Can you find any other scooter with such a rich dashboard ? Apart from this there is a side stand indicator.Other features include low slammed suspension setup with telescopic suspension in front and uni shock at the rear which gives you really an awesome comfort and cornering confidence Storage space under the seat is about 22 litres I guess it's so so big, till date no other scooter has such a huge storage. Performance: it accelerates from 0-50km per hour in 9.8 secs . Even after 8 years it's the same acceleration , such as good performing scooter, I will explain later in this review of how this is maintained and it's drawbacks. The acceleration is also very linear, meaning it takes you to speeds which you don't realise unless you see the Speedo by the time you reach 70+ kmph speed. The fact is , this acceleration gives you less vibration and therefore more confidence while making turns and sliding the bumps, it's the same confidence you would find in the aprilia150 which is on sale today.Brakes: brakes are just OK, for a scooter this level with a 125cc engine and 108 kg kerb we would need a better brakes to bring this mini hooligan to a stop, but it's just alright , we can adjust with both front and brakes engaged at the same time. By the way , there were no disc brakes for scooter as this class at my time (2010) of buying. Barely there was no competition for this with only suzuki access 125 being its counterpart or partner in crime.Looks : even today after all these years it's too stylish and is still noticeable by many on the road, it still stands apart, designed by the Italian designer SYM , I am not sure of where this designer is located or who was behind the model, but it's sleek design , making it very stylish if you look at it from any angle , I mean just look at it. Rodeo is a crowd puller.Now coming to important part, the disadvantages: Even though rodeo has a good ride experience, performance , road presence, handling like a bike , good refinement, raspy exhaust, still it has many disadvantages and drawback due to the bad R&D team whom were present in mahindra two wheeler division, which I have to accept as a customer and today they all are fired out of the company. There will always be customers waiting at service centre because they have complains on and off , even for normal complains such as side side loose or scooter getting hit on all potholes and bumps , I know why all that happened and what went really wrong.Let me put it all of those in single words or points:1) poor ground clearance leading to risk of fuel tank breakage since its fuel filler is next to front steering goes just below the chassis so anytime if you want to off road , think twice or you should learn or master how to not hit the tank by hard riding 2) side stand hits the road when you try to park , even with your scooter up straight, always 3)Headlamps focus: if you are night rider , make sure that the headlight adjustment s***w is focused to the road , or else the light will focus straight on the other vehicle , not on the road , even at low beam , so everytime service centre adjustment is required .4)rectifier aka RR unit : as many of you don't know the rodeo scooter has a big fault with the rectifier unit which converts AC TO DC current from the dyno to the battery, so this unit frequent fails thereby killing your bulb of all lights , and your speedometer too , now you have to keep checking the current of the rectifier time to time , to avoid this, ofcourse the battery is the first component to die in this issue. (As I kept changing battery every 2 years for no reason, is due to this problem , which I learnt from a good mahindra service centre and espcially battery shop, they will diagnose problem and will tell you this!)5) engine : after usage of just 25 or 30kms all the engine components such as a valve, timer,etc will fail easily) just a short period ? Since i maintain my scooter well , still all these failed, even from other owners the same complains emerged , so for all the parts, I mean all the wearable parts: to change: mahindra 2 wheeler service has a ready made list which has parts to change and will cost you 7000rs in total ,Mileage is about 20 to 25kmpl is my honest opinion even if you drive real slow and in constant speed , it will give you max 30kmpl in real time that's it . So is rodeo a big fail: well this is the first scooter from mahindra , but I feel really sad for the owner of this company , because the r and d department really failed and cheated on them, and this caused complete customer dissatisfaction from everyone . I mean even me liking the scooter and knowing all these problems for all these years, I will be the few owners who hasn't sold or thrown the scooter away, you know why, because this is unique , this performance oriented , and well it's my highschool sweetheart. Hope this helps everyone to decide to buy this or not, I will say that today they have recitifed many problems in this , the latest UZO125 rodeo is good. Well you have to make up your mind , if you are good maintainer then just buy it and if not, then don't complain later. My only complain will be smaller tank and less mileage other I'll live with this anyday over other scooter with all their features, even today.

    City riding 

    Let me summarize my 8 Months ownership review pros: 1. Awesome mileage - before 1st service I was getting 50kmpl when driving in city limit with 60-70kmph. It drops down to around 42kmpl on highways. After 2nd service, I was getting around 55kmpl in the city and around 45kmpl on highways. This is far better than many 150cc bikes like pulsar 150 or 160NS, RTR 160 4v, etc. 2. Very lightweight - I have driven a fair share of bikes from bajaj pulsar 200 and 220, Tvs apache 150. I must say given a 180 cc engine, It is far lighter than 200 cc segment bikes and is within range of 150-160 cc bikes from other brands. How does it help? While cornering on roads you feel more comfortable and confident while handling.3.Overall handling in the city - it is very easy to maneuver in the city even in heavy traffic. You will feel like you are just flying. Can't say more on this as this was the primary thing I was looking for after driving pulsar 220. (220 is a damn heavy bike and I had an issue while driving in traffic)4. Power - now many will look at the performance sheet and say the engine is underpowered, But let me tell you it has absolutely best in class weight to power ratio. Whenever you need to accelerate in traffic you can rely on this bike. The low and mid-performance are just awesome. I always zoom past traffic whenever the traffic light changes to green. The high end is not that peppy but still, we usually do not need that high performance in city limits.5.Engine refinement - this is also one of the best features I feel for this bike. The vibration is almost negligible, When standing still sometimes I get confused that the engine is not running at all. Even at 80-90s, there are minimal vibrations. Yeah after 100 it does start feeling some vibrations but being driven pulsar 220 it seems nothing.😆6.Tires - Tires are the widest available in the segment of 180 to 200 cc bikes. Along with being lightweight, stability is just out of the world. I can say with ease that even beginners with very little experience can handle this bike easily. 7. Looks - the looks are just awesome, It has been a head-turner every time I stop. I own the Repsol edition and from the front, it looks like a BMW. I have mistaken another hornet 2.0 coming from the front with BMW G310r. Cons:1.Stiffer suspension - due to suspension being on the stiffer side the stability is just awesome but takes away some comfort while driving at high speed on a bad road. So if you are from a city which has very bad roads or you live in the suburbs of a city. Your back might hate you to drive this. To be honest engine refinement goes for a toss on a bad road. We can adjust the suspensions also people have said that the suspension gets softer with use but I feel more like people getting habitual to the suspension. Overall for me, it is not a big problem as I mostly use it within the city and good roads.2.Pillion seat - it is okay to travel for a short distance on a pillion seat but long tours are not recommended. I have sat in the back seat for a good 1 hour and I could feel the stiffness building up on my bum and legs. Again the seat has ample space so it is okay to go for 40-50kms inside the city limit. But touring with a pillion is big no no.3.Ground clearance - the bike is short compared to its competitors. I have hit the main stand of the bike on sharp speed breakers and potholes many times when I was driving with a pillion on.When alone it doesn't have much problem. I weigh 73 kgs. So it is beneficial for short riders but for healthy people, they should first test drive it to see if it fits their purpose while clearing speed breakers and potholes. 4. High-end performance - this bike lacks high-end performance and red lines on 125-130kmph. Also, the wind blast is high due to being a naked streetfighter. Overall for city riding it doesn't have much problem.

  • Apache RTR 200 4V
    Overall Good Experience 

    I bought the top model on 17th February 2022 as my first bike. Here are some pros I have observed in only this bike at such a price range. 1) adjustable levers (mildly useful). 2)slipper clutch (very very useful). 3)gear indicator (very useful). 4) rear view mirrors(best in the market). 5)dual channel abs. 6)urban mode saves petrol and results in excellent mileage. (i got 44.3litres with power petrol from a shell company (115rs per litre). 7)the torque feels amazing even in urban mode and the bike is 150kgs+70kg(my weight).8) side stand cutoff is also available from this year.9)gtt is very useful for beginners like me. 10)horn is very loud. I think it's even louder than some cars. Now here are some cons I have faced that I wasn't aware of before buying this vehicle. 1) overweight people can't sit as a pillion due to stepping up and splitting seats. 2)side stand length is small therefore bike leans at an even more acute angle than other bikes, Therefore the risk of the bike falling especially while parked in sand/grass or soft ground. 3) shifting to neutral is a hassle because of the gears being so smooth. Sometimes when you want 2ndgear while driving it will shift to neutral first and then you have to shift again. And while parking when you shift for neutral from 1st gear it will skip to 2nd xd). 4)biggest con I guess is the large turning radius, especially for a beginner. Tyres are also thin in accordance with the size of the bike(same tyres as of rtr160). 5)review Bluetooth functions-a)GPS display on the instrument cluster is useless because the GPS of TVs connect app is very bad. You can't connect google maps or any other GPS with your bike. B)call message text alert-very useful and applicable. C) lean angle is accurately measured and recorded in the app. D) routes and distances covered are also accurate. E)gear shifting patterns are very useful and accurate for beginners like me. I think everyone should at least consider this bike (especially beginners) when looking to buy a new bike. I researched bikes for 8months before getting my hand on this one. I had booked mt15 and rtr160special edition also but cancelled both of them when my mind got stuck on apache200.This bike is the queen of its segment.No debate. Of course, NS200 is a great bike but almost no one nowadays buys a motorcycle for its high torque and power and enjoying high speeds (125+). If you need to ride constantly long distances at speeds above 100+kmph then you should not consider apache200. I live in a crowded city with mild to high traffic and considering my lifestyle and surrounding environment my purchase was worth the wait of 8months.

  • Pulsar 180
    4.6
    Upright torso 

    It was 2013, Me and my brother were looking for a 150cc bike for daily commute and and at that time all we had were Pulsar, Apache, Fz, Fazer, Cb Xtreme, Hunk and Unicorn. Moreover our commute was to college and we needed a snap...so i was convincing my brother and family for bigger bikes like pulsar 220, R15 and 200NS but effeciency was also concerned where petrol price hike was an issue back then and till now! lol So on keeping all factors...we were close with 3- Pulsar 180, Pulsar 220 and Apache 180 (hero twins were not sure on production and availability). And eyes closed we've rejected Apache for vibrations as soon as we first test ridden it as our daily commute was about 80-100 kms. So it was within the same brand and with efficiency concerned we had no further option rather than sticking with 180. We were already a fan of Pulsar for its looks and features. firstly illuminated switch gears, auto turn off indicators and DC lighting. which made it standout from the bikes back then. First Impression: From the first sight the naked styling with clip-ons , Fatter front and rear tires with chunky forks it looks kinda strong addition to twin pilot lamps(Wolf eyed) styling with Speedlines vinyl(half black) was quiet impressive.Build: The bike is slightly heavy as it's on 220s chassis and Metal fuel tank, heavy exhaust which makes hefty and the Fit and finish is average causing skeeching noises and till 3 years there were no rust signs but the paint of black parts like engine block, cylinder fins, exhaust, wheels were poor which is visible to naked eye itself. But other than that the metal body doesnt make any issues.. with proper maintenance the bike keeps on shining and its been 7 years haven't seen the paint peel off...infact paint quality is still great even on plastic panels. And the bike is quite silent in regular speeds without buzz,only in top end the foot pegs and seats get the buzz. Ergonomics: At the beginning i felt the bike was heavy for my age which is common but later was in love with the ergonomics, especially the comfortable not so low clip-ons and back slung pedals the position is spot on for long rides. Also pillion seat was big enough and equally as spacious like 150 and not bad. But fixation of ladies footrest(saree) is not possible as suspension is taller in 180. Only care to be taken is when pillion gets backpack, the extended plastic end gets scratched easily. Overall the position is good for both city and Highway conditions with upright torso and lean back pedals.Seats are a tad hard comparing to any bike. long rides were never delightful with these, hard cushion makes it sturdy in city conditions but for long rides sore b**t is for sure. And wind blast is vigorous at even 80 kmph which bike does it in ease and unless you tug in, doing high speeds is like a pullback! Performance: Having 180 is surely advantage where no 150 commuters messes around...overall performance compared to Apache 180, Pulsar 180 is not close to Apache 180 where the acceleration is better in apache with shorter gearing but pulsar shines in Topspeed and Highway cruising with ease maintaining triple digits without any vibrations. The additional weight of pulsar is also visible in acceleration. However the Torque spread is from 4000rpm above that which the bike pulls straight to 9000rpm and after that the juice fades which is limited with Cdi to 10000rpm. Transmission is something that was hectic in pulsars back then with sluggish gear shifts which usually makes you held up in neutral while shifting from 1st to second and engaging 5th gear from 4th was quiet a task. Clutch is not as light as japanese but still Lighter than any Royal Enfields back then. The Engine is air cooled and does the job with no issues but i havent risked it longer than 100 kms. Took a break for every 100kms in long rides. And the bike came up without any fuss even on topend. Clocked 52k kms till now and reached topspeed of 154 kmph.(not sure may be bajajs speedo error) haven't checked in GPS but sure that'll be close.Braking: one thing that im impressed is with the brakes.. with soft suspension in front and heavy front end makes the bikes brakes so confident inspiring without locking front wheels and bigger disc offers decent feel in the lever. One thing old pulsar 180 model missed is Rear disc. Mine got only Drum at rear which usually locksup in solo and not that confident inspiring with pillion. even on locking the wider tires(MRFs) gives enough confident to ride hard. the softer front suspension helps in not locking up front wheels but nose dive is heavy and unless you have straight roads for stopping surely needs skills. while cornering definitely Pulsar is not composed or even confident inspiring like Apache and 200NS , Pulsar 180 feels kinda bouncy and usually the exhaust scraps down in right and foot pegs in left. But where Pulsar shines is in highways with add on weight and long wheelbase the stability is unmatched, it can do Triple digits all day long without making the rider giving a shock unless you change the seat(bahoth hard)! Also the adjustable nitrox only softens and stiffens up rear end while the most important is front suspension which is miss. Milege: When ridden soft and not so aggressively the figures keepup above 40 kmpl and in highway it stretches to 45 kmpl and in average i get around 42kmpl, With Huge 15 litres tank the Range easily 500 kms. Overall: Pulsar 180 is a bike above 150cc commuters and does the work in its own style and 18 years of legacy in Indian motorcycling. Especially that snap over the 150s and 160 cc's like Apache 160, Fz and Fazer is definitely worth it. Now the Pulsar 180F is only available with semi-fairing and not in naked street, which is very much needed especially for that windblast in cruising speeds. Its the bike that's not for maniac riding and amature riding, its the one for city limit crossing commuters conquering both city and highway conditions, who rides like a commuter and want a bit fun occasionally. That brand and classic Wolf pack styling is always Nostalgic.

    Smaller tank 

    Buying experience: I brought this scooter in the year 2010 and now it's 2019 almost 9 years apart , the showrooms staff were good, I got the scooter promptly as they had a good collection of all the colours, mine is blazing red. Important highlights of this scooter included : 1) FIRST scooter made in india with digital colourful multifunctional speedometer includes functions such as TRIPA ,TRIP B ,CLOCK , 0-50km in how many second , 50 meters in how many seconds and not just that 7+ different colours with 3 different styles of colour changing : singular changing, slow dimming automatic changing mode and automatic single colour changing ! There is tachometer like a sports bike , Can you find any other scooter with such a rich dashboard ? Apart from this there is a side stand indicator.Other features include low slammed suspension setup with telescopic suspension in front and uni shock at the rear which gives you really an awesome comfort and cornering confidence Storage space under the seat is about 22 litres I guess it's so so big, till date no other scooter has such a huge storage. Performance: it accelerates from 0-50km per hour in 9.8 secs . Even after 8 years it's the same acceleration , such as good performing scooter, I will explain later in this review of how this is maintained and it's drawbacks. The acceleration is also very linear, meaning it takes you to speeds which you don't realise unless you see the Speedo by the time you reach 70+ kmph speed. The fact is , this acceleration gives you less vibration and therefore more confidence while making turns and sliding the bumps, it's the same confidence you would find in the aprilia150 which is on sale today.Brakes: brakes are just OK, for a scooter this level with a 125cc engine and 108 kg kerb we would need a better brakes to bring this mini hooligan to a stop, but it's just alright , we can adjust with both front and brakes engaged at the same time. By the way , there were no disc brakes for scooter as this class at my time (2010) of buying. Barely there was no competition for this with only suzuki access 125 being its counterpart or partner in crime.Looks : even today after all these years it's too stylish and is still noticeable by many on the road, it still stands apart, designed by the Italian designer SYM , I am not sure of where this designer is located or who was behind the model, but it's sleek design , making it very stylish if you look at it from any angle , I mean just look at it. Rodeo is a crowd puller.Now coming to important part, the disadvantages: Even though rodeo has a good ride experience, performance , road presence, handling like a bike , good refinement, raspy exhaust, still it has many disadvantages and drawback due to the bad R&D team whom were present in mahindra two wheeler division, which I have to accept as a customer and today they all are fired out of the company. There will always be customers waiting at service centre because they have complains on and off , even for normal complains such as side side loose or scooter getting hit on all potholes and bumps , I know why all that happened and what went really wrong.Let me put it all of those in single words or points:1) poor ground clearance leading to risk of fuel tank breakage since its fuel filler is next to front steering goes just below the chassis so anytime if you want to off road , think twice or you should learn or master how to not hit the tank by hard riding 2) side stand hits the road when you try to park , even with your scooter up straight, always 3)Headlamps focus: if you are night rider , make sure that the headlight adjustment s***w is focused to the road , or else the light will focus straight on the other vehicle , not on the road , even at low beam , so everytime service centre adjustment is required .4)rectifier aka RR unit : as many of you don't know the rodeo scooter has a big fault with the rectifier unit which converts AC TO DC current from the dyno to the battery, so this unit frequent fails thereby killing your bulb of all lights , and your speedometer too , now you have to keep checking the current of the rectifier time to time , to avoid this, ofcourse the battery is the first component to die in this issue. (As I kept changing battery every 2 years for no reason, is due to this problem , which I learnt from a good mahindra service centre and espcially battery shop, they will diagnose problem and will tell you this!)5) engine : after usage of just 25 or 30kms all the engine components such as a valve, timer,etc will fail easily) just a short period ? Since i maintain my scooter well , still all these failed, even from other owners the same complains emerged , so for all the parts, I mean all the wearable parts: to change: mahindra 2 wheeler service has a ready made list which has parts to change and will cost you 7000rs in total ,Mileage is about 20 to 25kmpl is my honest opinion even if you drive real slow and in constant speed , it will give you max 30kmpl in real time that's it . So is rodeo a big fail: well this is the first scooter from mahindra , but I feel really sad for the owner of this company , because the r and d department really failed and cheated on them, and this caused complete customer dissatisfaction from everyone . I mean even me liking the scooter and knowing all these problems for all these years, I will be the few owners who hasn't sold or thrown the scooter away, you know why, because this is unique , this performance oriented , and well it's my highschool sweetheart. Hope this helps everyone to decide to buy this or not, I will say that today they have recitifed many problems in this , the latest UZO125 rodeo is good. Well you have to make up your mind , if you are good maintainer then just buy it and if not, then don't complain later. My only complain will be smaller tank and less mileage other I'll live with this anyday over other scooter with all their features, even today.

  • Interceptor 650
    Best Bike Ever 

    I booked it online and brought it home on 4th February 22, have ridden it around in the city and have made trips out of town on it, It's a bike that you will love to ride around, It's compact, got juice on the throttle, handles well, has good balance, performs well, and is comfortable on long rides I have done 500 to 650 km runs in a day, without too much stress I would say its pros, and cons- the braking of the rear wheel leaves a lot to be desired and had to change and put Japanese ceramic brake pads to compensate, plus you have to clean the rear brake assembly every 500 km or so otherwise, a squeaky noise starts every time you use the brakes, I don't know whether this happens on other bikes. I think the bike is overweight by a good 15 to 20 kilos, which cuts its performance I personally like the stock exhaust. On long rides you appreciate them they don't give you a headache. The pickup could be better it would vastly improve if it shed a little weight, fuel consumption overall in the city gets from 19 km to 23 km depending on how traffic & speed, on highways it can give you up to 25 km if you keep her under 100, around 120 to 140 it gives you around 21kms and build quality is excellent in most areas though you will find rust seeping in around the pipes in the rainy season, & the engine cover is in aluminium which can get oxidized if your not careful, which then needs to be buffed & polished. The best part of this bike that I absolutely love is there is no vibration, the anti-vibration measures that the UK designers incorporated in the d engine are brilliant ( trust me I have been riding a re-export for 20-plus years, and you will love the long rides) feature wise it's a pretty basic no-fuss bike, but it's got d essentials like abs which works really well, a digital console with two trip meters, fuel indicator which a lot of people say gets glitchy thankfully mine is working fine.

    Catching motorcycle 

    This is undoubtedly an eye-catching motorcycle. You'll often notice people turning their heads. It is also very comfortable and has "excellent" braking capability. Never seen a bike with such terrific braking performance. However, It does not seem to be very reliable. On the first day of delivery, The bike stopped after 5 km and we had to tow it back to the garage. The next day the starter motor was changed and it was fixed. Point to be noted, The motor of a brand new bike had to be changed in just one day. Ok fine, Let me take that as a technical exception and not be judgmental about that. After all, it's a machine and perhaps bad luck. But no, It doesn't end there. Over the next one month, The bike again stopped several times in the middle of the road due to two reasons: 1. Overheating 2. Taking the clutch and releasing the accelerator. Now, Every now or then I would see the engine temperature reaching over 100c even when riding at 40-50km/hr. When I called service people they said 100c is very normal because 105c is the limit. Just 5c below the limit every now and then doesn't seem normal to me. One fine day the bike stopped in the middle of the road and refused to start because the temperature reached over 105. Though it eventually did start after 20 minutes, But hey.What the hell? it's not a 200hp bike that heat management is so difficult. Apart from this, The bike has stopped several times when I applied the full clutch and released the accelerator. In fact, riding this bike was like a luck game. I hope it doesn't stop! another thing is that this bike has a very very bad low rpm power delivery. It is useless to drive the bike below 4000rpm. At low revs, One wrong gear or a slight quick release of clutch and the engine begins to knock out. This makes low speed driving a very bad experience. Not just me but several people who have tried my bike have ended with a sudden engine turn off because of bad low rev power delivery. The bike though becomes fun after 4k rpm but it's pain below that. Also, the power delivery is highly non-linear. It comes in bursts after 4k and again somewhere after 6k. After the first service of the bike after 1000km, the heating issue was solved and switching off when taking clutch also reduced significantly. One more thing I think could be better is the speed. With my brother sitting at the back, Which is mostly the case, The bike struggles reaching 120km/hr.I don't mean it can't reach more than 120, But the time it would take to cross this speed will require an impractical stretch of free road. So for all practical purposes, We can find it reaching 80 to 90 easily on the Delhi ring road with moderate traffic. Just wish it could be 120 or so with ease instead of 90. To sum up1. Stunning looks and somehow the brand value (really?) adds to it.2.Very comfortable, Glides through rough roads.3.Very good breaking performance.4.Very bad low rpm power delivery5.Speed slightly lower than expectations. Why 4 stars even after all this? well, I think the overall ownership makes me feel a 4-star satisfaction. It's not only the engine you see when we talk of how you feel about owning a particular bike. A million-dollar question would be, If you removed the brand value would I still rate this 4 stars? honest answer, No. I would rate it 3.5 stars. So the extra 0.5 stars just for the ego boost of owning a BMW? perhaps yes. Would I recommend this bike? yes, I will, There's perhaps no competition to it in terms of comfort and appearance. Given the option of a 100% refund, Will I buy a different bike? well no. Out of the box, But I decided on this bike over the ninja 650 which I was initially planning.No it was not the price, It was the feel. Even today I will not swap this with a 650. Just for information a few quick facts: it cost me 3, 50, 000 on road in Delhi with the blue and red colour option which was around 7k extra. I ride in the city and the mileage is 25km/once I broke the clutch lever and it cost over 3k to have it replaced. The first service cost over 7k.

  • Dominar 400
    4.6
    Unpaved rubble 

    I have been using graphite matte dominar 2017 for three years now, While earlier i used it for city ride in delhi for 20kms a day for 18-20 months, Later i started touring on it once i had confidence on bike.I have done delhi to jaisalmer round trip of 2500 kms within 7 days and that did tested the bike on paved highway and unpaved rubble way on the way.Touring experience - talking about the performance, Long touring is effortless, Did 700kms in a day while riding time was 8 hrs in total, I cruised at 120-130 for an hour and then kept myself up and running at 100kmph for most of the day, I have done 20k till now i and stock tyres are still good to go for another 5-7k.While one of the bike broke down on the way to jaisalmer, My bike performed with ease.The problem arrived when we were heading back to delhi on 7th day, Brakes were wobbling and hadto drive with limited speeds of 80-90 km that too on open highway from jaipur to delhi.This problem took atleast 3 service centre visits, With 3 different dealerships and only mahipalpur bagga link service centre in new delhi offered the good solution.Handle crank was loose.So there was a j**k on bike while braking.Long term problems -another problem i faced was rear brakes, The master cylinder in first version of 2017 isn't great and brake gets air somehow in 6 months.I'm not sure of comparison with other bikes though.After 10k kms, It took 4 hrs to pump back the pressure without changing disks or calipers and brakes are still working fine.Then only brakes were back to stock condition.Thanks to kalkaji service station in new delhi.They do charge irrelevant prices.Suspension - talking about suspension, It is good for paved road and if you are driving it for the first time you will feel heaviness and harder suspension in city traffic.Off road performance is also good but in rains and mud, You need to change your tyre according to the terrain you ride.Stock tyre feels slippery during rains and it doesn't work well in mud, Ofcourse it is a dry track tyre from mrf.City driving - driving in city, I felt no hesitation in rush hours in delhi, Its pretty good to handle in such traffic.Economy takes a hit in traffic, It goes down to 18-19kmpl (i did revved hard at 7k rpm level at low gears to check the difference in economy).When i'm riding at 3-4k rpm at higher gears, Let's say 45kmph @ 3rd gear.Fuel economy jumps to 26-28 kmpl.Quite considerable difference there.Mileage - as i mentioned, City riding at high revs, Will cost you fuel economy dearly.You may get 21-24kmpl in such riding style.At highway i touched 31.67kmpl on jaipur-delhi highway which is absolute paradise for riders.On mountains it will give you 26-28kmpl and oh boy don't even try to turn engine off on hills, Unless you want to crash (just some riding guidance there ;))headlamps-now talking about the headlamps, If you compare it with any other bike, These are super cool but in comparison with ktm range, They seem dull, Especially the dipper.This can be improved since dominar needs good dipper because it is a highway bike than ktm.Clutch is on tough side, I had to recalibrate it according to my style.Ktm has live in wire throttle which is a charm seriously.Gear pad also feels low quality and get loosen up.Troubles while shifting gear.Got it changed at 10k but i guess its good enough.Ride style - im stock condition, Without installing handle bar raisers, It feels little committed, Lesser than ktm duke but it will put strain on your shoulders and wrists and you are bound to get carpel tunnel syndrome if you ride in stock condition on long tours.Advice - get suspension raisers or handle bar raisers if you want effortless riding experience.It does wonders.Seat - many people suggested me to modify my seat but i didnt.I weigh 59kg at 5'7.5' height so it is really comfortable for me im stock condition.You may want to modify if you weigh more than 65-70kgs.Pillion seat of 2017 model makes a lot of noise, Maybe the plastic component has started to loosen s bit over the time.Console - acrylic panel with abs fixtures.It is a scratch magnet, I changed it just now as it started getting c***k marks due to temperature changes over longer period of bike usage.I would recommend, Get it laminated as soon as you get your bike.Otherwise the console has good features, Enough to let you know everything you want for a bike console.Maintenance - it will give you 1.5-2.5₹ per km running cost in three years and if you fond of accessories like me, You will get around 3.5₹ running cost per km over 20k kms.These costs are bound to reduce if you do a lot of long tours due to significant reduction in fuel economy on highways.Exhaust - i prefer the 2017 exhaust note but new one is really heavy and may give you superbike feel.Hardware of older moto is really tough, Can take a 2cm deep hit without affecting the exhaust console.And you can get it repaired for as low as 20₹ form local welding workshop.Else it costs just 500₹ from service centre, If available.Mine is still to get delivered even after a month of booking.Accessories - i have installed few touring mods like crash guards, Knuckle guards etc.With did saved me from an accident i had at 50kmph.Also i got mobile charger bolt, Ram mount, Carbon racing wind shield with braces which vibrates but helps a lot on highway during wind blasts and wind drafts.I changed the mirrors to the new version of 2019 ug model.Also planning to change the tank body to new ug model's graphite matte.I also installed flashers from simtac and auxiliary lights with relay harness.Cleaning and maintenance - i wash and polish it every alternate weekend, Also depends on the amount of mud or dust.And semi annual ceramic coating maintenance to maintain the paint.I like shiny graphite than matte.Things to know -always install new relay harness with auxiliary lights.Don't connect then directly in main harness just to avoid any future complication with your stock components.Choose metal frame knuckle guard, And good quality thick wind shield for better protection.Crash guards are must and there shouldn't be any compromise with that.Rev low and gears high will give you good economy and engine will last longer than expectation.Keep a check on tyres tread as per your riding style.Throttle and clutch wire can be adjusted as per your style.Don't try to run over a speed breaker at high speed, Will damage your alloy rims.And that is an unwanted expense.Summary -good bike for city, One of the best power cruiser in mid range for highways.Powerful workhorse if maintained properly.

Now the Pulsar 180F is only available with semi-fairing and not in naked street, which is very much needed especially for that windblast in cruising speeds. Its the bike that's not for maniac riding and amature riding, its the one for city limit crossing commuters conquering both city and highway conditions, who rides like a commuter and want a bit fun occasionally. That brand and classic Wolf pack styling is always Nostalgic.

The bike lags in the power delivery when it comes to throttle response.4. electric charging stations are few right now.5. RV 400 comes with a 3.24 kWh Lithium-Ion battery its weight is 19 kgs is quite heavy, not an easy task to carry it to say, a power outlet inside home for charging.6. it's power drops down.... specially when on incline or riding up on bridge.7, you need 6 months bank statement to buy this bike + adhaar car + pan card 8, when you stop paying the bike will stop working 9. Three colours only, silver, black, red10. 37 months payment plan or cash11. sound is only a speaker, so speaker can be spoiled after while then there will be no sound12. 78-100 Rs elecrtricity cost per charge 13, if you living on higher floor without lift then it will be difficult to carry the battery up to home so you will need wire extension 15 Ampere plug to ground floor to charge it. 14. fibre body will break if you fault as there is leg gaurd or crash gaurd in the front of your legs so if you fall body will c***k which will be big expenditure to replace the fibre body. so find out the cost of fibre body replacement cost. Also there is no safety of your legs in case of accident. you would have to fit the crash guard to the frame for it to be of any use. That would be difficult as the fairing on the side covers the frame. Even if you manage to get past the fairing, the frame design and placement would not provide a rigid base to install a crash bar.15. belt will need replacement so find out cost of belt replacement. sound in the belt16, seat is small ,cushion is not that comfortable you need to sit slightly back17. chinese super soco dc max chasis , brakes, motor.18. green number plate. 19. can we drive in rains company says all electronic parts are water proof but you need to protectthe bike by wearing rain jacket for safety.
