The blaze is sure an Italian design, but not an Italian engine…..thats the sad part.
Kinetic has again tried its engineering hands on a bueauty and its again a let down..rode one and was not happy with the engine at all..its again the stupid 165cc 4-valve engine that was a run-away flop…. I wish the Italian gem was still under the seat! Its just a de-tuned GF170’s engine with a vario drive!

have seen the bajaj blade at the expo
it is simply no match for the Blaze design, doesnt even come close.
plus, bajaj has a long history of making very problematic gearless scooters - suffire, wave, spirit etc so I wouldnt touch an automatic from bajaj from a long long way off.

in automatics, u can only really trust kinetic and honda.

anyhow - the gf170 4 valve engine was always a very good engine. forget the bike, but the engine was always very good, very torquey. and the Blaze simply rocks. Plus, its a fantastic price. anywhere in the world, vehicles like this cost nothing less than $4000.
