Had not crossed 5k RPM before the service, post service I noticed that after 5k RPM the Vibrations are quite high, it is annoying !!

Also noticed that the RVMs appear blur due to vibration post 50KMPH Anybody else facing this issue ?

Can someone shed some light on the Run In period please? The Manual says upto 2k KMS and I'm sure no one really follows that. I always thought after 1st Service one is free to start redlining, may not be immediately but gradually. Had posted the same question on one of the Group and I have received mixed responses. I want some clarity on Run in Period.
Dont worry.After first service the same thing happened with me.The faced vibrations above 5,000rpm to 6,000rpm and had been tearing my hair over this.But this dissappeared after 1000kms.The vibrations will move up the rev range and then go down.

There are some areas which contribute to the vibrations,like the rear number plate,rear hugger,radiator assembly,console.A little bit of tightening here and there will solve it.Although i would still say refinement needs a bit of improving from Bajaj's end.

Run in period question differs from people to people.Personally,take gradually till 1000kms.Go up till 7-8rpm regularly so that engine gets used to it and opens up but dont rip it all the time,use the entire rev range.Post that you can redline,but again no hard and fast rules.Like every machine it needs to get used to conditions,stresses,temperature,pressure etc.So introduce it to methodically.

Best advice,take it for a long highway run.

First of all, let me congratulate you for a wise choice. You know what, i went to buy a discover and i returned home with an NS.Why cos i simply took a test ride.

The bike is an awesome piece of machinery but the rubbers simply disappoint. With those Eurogrips, for me cornering finds to be a nightmare especially when you have a wet road.

Again the brakes are awesome, but remember, this is not your FZ so dont go for a hard braking, it will throw you out of the seat. After All that was my first accident experience with my NS when i had a sudden brake due to a stray dog crossing and bang i was spinning on the road.

The engine oil part with Motul 7100 20W40 seems to be best fit and even some SVCs do fill in the same on request. Probably in the second service you can try too.

Drive safe and happy motoring.

Thank you Buddy, Sad to hear about the accident, hard braking is very scary ! I use engine braking and Front and rear proportionately

Ride Safe !

Firstly, Congratulations on the beauty.

When it comes to braking make sure you have a proportion of 70:30, where 70 would be front braking and 30 would be rear braking. Trust me it works like a charm and you will be confident during any emergency braking's. Also the wear & tear of rear brake pad is more compared to front brake pad.

And on the tyre's, I would always prefer MRF against Euro-grip because of the low performance in wet conditions and hard braking from Euro-grip. When I bought my first bike Pulsar - 150 I specifically mentioned the dealer about giving me from the lot which had MRF tyre's.

Wish you happy and safe riding buddy

Congratulations on the NS. I feel it is a perfect mix of a commuter bike and a sports bike. Enjoy your times with it. Also, Your report reminded me that I have not updated my ownership report in a long time. Will plan to do that

Thank you Buddy. Yes the Eurogrips are bad, hopefully will be upgrading soon

Thank you Rajeev, please do write your report

Off late have been facing problem with the Gear shifter. When ever I shift the Gear, the Gear shifts and the engine behaves very normal, but the Gear shifter is stuck and after couple of seconds there is TIK sound then it returns to the normal position, Anyone else faced this ? what could be the issue ?

Had been to the "1st Official NW TRACK DAY" today. It was a nice experience and was so much fun. Who ever were riding on the track for the 1st time were asked to ride the KTM Duke 390 first and then ride the NS.

Riding the 390 for the first time straight on the track was something which I was not really comfortable with as It takes time to understand how the Bike behaves and handles so I rode very slowly :P

Took my NS on track and the 390 Duke made me feel the NS underpowered !! Took about 10 laps on the track the Bike behaved really well and learnt quite a few things today. Wish Blore had a nice Track where we could take our rides to unleash them !

PS: I saw Yellow NS which had TeamBHP sticker on it. Who was it ?

Few pictures of me riding the Duke and NS.

First of all, congratulations for the bike.

Being a fellow NS owner, I can say this was the best decision I have made in near past.
I have been riding this monster for about 5 Months now and have covered around 3500Kms.

I agree with most of the points mentioned in this thread regarding the bike. The Eurogrips are the worst when they come to grip. A bit hard on the rear brake, and they are bound to slip. Have experienced this many times. Front brakes have to be applied proportionally to prevent the rear from sliding out.

Regarding the riding position, you will gradually get used to it.

Power band, it accelerates like anything after 6K RPM. Cruising at around 80Kmph in the 6th Gear on a highway is an easy job, has enough of power when you need.

As a fellow owner mentioned, the fuel gauge has a mind of its own. The 1st bar lasts for around a 110 Kms and then the yellow light shows up at around 300-330 Kms for me. The FE has been good as almost 75% of my commute is covered in the 6th gear at speeds of around 70. Have managed to extract around 40kmpl over the period of time. If you can manage to restrict it at 60Kmph in 6th Gear, you can get an FE of 45+ as well.

Headlight throw and power, both good and have not felt a need to upgrade as of yet. Tyres, an update on the cards.

The 'PULSAR' thing on the tank is too prone to breaking, already the corners are coming off, thanks to the watchman washing the bike.

Totally agree with you on the fuel gauge front. I just got a NS and on my first full tank run. Noticed that the bars did not go down for the first 180 odd KMS, and then suddenly 3-4 bars down. Perhaps its a case of fuel theft, will monitor this on the second tank fill.

Cheers
