The HH Sleek had a raised rear seat.
Meant the pillion would keep sliding to the front whenever the brakes were applied.

Made this a very popular bike.

Is Luna considered a bike?
I'll include it anyway

Well, these are the ones I used in the past
Luna Super
Luna Magnum
TVS Scooty
TVS Scooty Pep
Yamaha RX100
Hero Honda Splendour
Bajaj Pulsar 180

Thanks to my Mom for Luna and Scooty. Right now I don't have any bike but I'm targeting an under 600 cc bike next year.

Cheers!

My set of two-wheels so far:

1. Bajaj Chetak (Sold)
2. Bajaj Bravo (Sold)
3. TVS Victor (Still on)

I bought the Victor six years ago, and take it out occasionally. It has run about 9500 kms so far. Yes, don't be surprised!!! That's nine thousand five hundred kms only. I guess I'll have to rejoin the gym in order for me to justify taking the bike out on regular basis. On a good note, serviced at regular intervals (every six months).
