Yeah! That's one negative I was not a fan of. It's definitely a bike to have only if you have so much spare money to not worry about paying maybe ₹10000 extra for service. But that being said, except KTM most sports bikes are high on maintenance with an exception of Triumph which asks for only 1 service an year.

I did not find any official thread on TNT 300 other than this so posting it here.
Currently I own a P220 and want to upgrade it to TNT300. I have seen the bike, ridden it good enough to know what this beast is all about. Also I have met owners of Tnt300 and neither one has talked anything negative other than the short and costly service intervals. But these owners I had met were in their 3 to 5 months of ownership and not long termers.
Recently while researching on this bike I have found out many reliability issues of this bike and mostly are based of poor quality material and assembly methods. Some which I have read common are the sheering of wheel bearing, Instrument console going blank, engine sensors being replaced. And above all this one major issue I read and heard (from a service guy) some engines have seized due to the poor build quality and not due to cooling system failure.
So I am bit of confused whether to go for this or not.
TNT 300 owners please guide me through this. How is your experience with the bike as a long termer.

I am more or less in the same predicament as you were (my choices are Duke 390 or TNT300) but I am inclined more towards TNT300. Since you have been with your beauty for quite a while now so wanted to know your inputs on:

1. Does the bike feels out of breath on highways?
2. How does it fare with a pillion?
3. How are her hillside/ghat manners? do you need to choke the life out of her during ascent?
4. How is the bike quality considering it is owned by 'chinese' company.
5. Does it heat up like KTMs?
7. I am hearing many stories about DSK group closing up shops? is it true? are the company planning to pull out the plug from India?
6. I have heard that the service schedule is changed under Happy Savings Plan, could you please let me the know the serivce interval now?
7. lastly, does the service schedule make you wanna rob a bank?

thanks in advance!
