  • Pros: Cbs works really great.i have tested my bike to the limits guys believe me this does great at breaking on all kind of roads.but riders must use only the foot break to avoid sliding on wet roads plz donot use your front brake directly.i felt bit discomfort in engaging the gaers but now found a solution for that as well the thing is every time u engage a top gear u have to pull the rpm till 4000rp from 2nd to 5th.but form 1st to 2nd 3000-3500 is enough by implementing this technical implication trust me u won't feel those hard gears again.always be kind at your bike don't b to harsh on it. this could reduce the life of the engine.next comes to suspension guys I have done many practicals on this beast plz turn the rear suspension to soft mode means tell the service people to turn the spring to right side for twice by this it turns to soft mode I think most of u guys dint know this the bike actually comes with medium setup so rotate it to right side for twice.next comes to air pressure plz keep your air pressure front 20-25 for single rider if pillion is there it must b bwt 25 front n 28 rear.to avoid back pain do not cross the speed limit more than 45 this ll help u to ride comfortably in the city I'm from Hyd here roads r to worse so I suffered a lot in the beginning but I studied the bike carefully I won't cross 40 so now I'm enjoying my every day ride.next comes to gear ratios they r with shorter ratios but they r sweet as well shorter ratio means this will deliver good mileage.at 6kmph u can drive in 2nd gear,at 15kmph 3rd gear,at 24 4th gear, 35 5th gear.next clutch turns little bit harder after some time so u can solve this by your own loose the nut it ll solve the problem.so guys this my heart full review about this beast in point at the advantages n I'm proud to own this beast where I get plenty of attention on the roads even the gixxer guys can't stop to at this beast????.don't forget to service your bike on time to time intervals.my best suggestion ll b throughout its life get the service done with the Honda service point don't go for local mechanics as they don't know about this bike n what it is capable of.
    Honda is the only bike to provide rust free fuel tanks so think before u choose.
  • Cons: If it falls it's tank cowels gets scratches even its handle won't help bcoz I have faced this problem so to get some good protection I replaced the original handle with bullets Handel guys trust me it suits very well to this beast n it protects the tank as well. of course the missing of kill switch ,gear indicator n average switch gears n poor location of rear diskbreak hydraulic oil dam n the oil pipe are so disappointing.so if u can manage with these things this bike is an awesome 1

Full Review:

Value for money don't go for the other bikes in this segment because Honda is the only company to provide rust free fuel tanks which helps your bike's carborate to supply free flow of fuel this even increases your bike's performance n it won't cast u to replace a tank after a couple of years.guys I'm a great fan of bikes n it's my responsibility to give u the right review n own this bike
