I will definitely try the Veedol in between 2 services as I don't wish to void the 5 year engine warranty. Or should I just go to the local FNG post the first free 6 services just for the sake of engine oil?

What's your take on the 10w30 from Honda?

Secondly is it advisable to try or switch to different grades such as 20w40 or will it cause damage? I have had a bad time when I switched on my older bike and hence am skeptical.
According to the owner's manual, the engine oil is to be changed every 6 months(every alternate service) and the bike serviced within 90 days from previous service.

So get Veedol and replace it during the alternate service by a FNG.

Trust me nothing feels as smooth as veedol in hero bikes.
I use this Veedol 10w30 in my 2013 xtreme and drain it at 2200kms and even at the mileage-it still feels smooth. My usage is mostly on highways with rpm above 6K.

You can try 20w40 but the engine will feel slightly lethargic due to thicker oil.
