You are right. Thanks for pointing out

2. The Mirror adjustments were either too tight (left) or too loose (right ones). I never got a perfect setting while riding. My wife does not complain about this Either the right mirror when it falls is perfect for her height or she does not use mirror altogether.
3. Not flood friendly. Over here in Chennai, as soon as the water level on the road reaches above 4-5 inches but well below the silencer, the clutch starts to slip causing the rider to raise the throttle to get decent traction.
100% agreed.
1) Amaron holds good (far better) than OE Amco. We had Amaron in Scooty Pep as 3rd replacement battery and never faced any issues even with very limited usage.
2) Adjustment range is very limited (same fate with Pep as well) One of my friend went for TVS Jupiter RVMs which has a decent range of adjustment (spoiling the looks)
3) I'm a victim myself
