Why is this? Will this improve after the 1st service? Its due and I will be giving it tommorow.
Most new vehicles dont give the best mileage they can. Once the engine is run in, it will get better. In fact, if you havent already changed the oil for the first time, ask your mechanic or the guys at the service center to show you the oil in a clear container if possible. You will see tiny metal particles in it.

Dude during the run-in period you should never cross 4000 RPM.

Caroholic,i would be interested in knowing the name of this dealer and if possible a copy of the disclaimer he made you sign.I can try and ensure that such foolishness on dealers part is dealt with

@straight6: I used to get 50kmpl before 1st service on my 180DTSi V1

carholic is correct you should have stuck to max 4500 rpm. ride with 4.5k & then see how much you get.

This is something i personally follow:

Change oil after 1st 50-60 kms
next changes at 500 kms or at first service even if manual doesnt say so, then on at 2000 kms keeps the engine real fit under hard abuse too

But guys there is one thing which i wanted to ask you all should i get that central locking removed? Got that installed from the dealership itself but many people around me are asking me to get it removed because its gonna destroy my battery. That central locking is from some brand known as "boss".

Should i get that removed or not?

please throw the central locking into the nearest dust bin, other wise you can see the battery die with in 1year's time!

more over CL thing costs not more than 700 its just a money making trick and it will eat the battery like crazy!

one more advice, no offenses and please dont feel bad, but just advices, please kick start the bike in the mornings, the way to do it is first with the ignition off and hold the clutch and kick 3-4times and then switch on the ignition and kick start! this way the bike stays well lubricated!

other wise the clutch plates will not stay the way they are suppose to for a long time, you see the design of the clutch bell is such that it does not come with gaps and that really creates GB problems later on!

if you plan to keep this bike for a lone time to come just pm me on the issue you will have to face, if its just like max 2 years then you can just get it serviced at what ever service center you will!

The dealer is SUMAN BAJAJ NOIDA. Nope, i don't have the copy of that disclaimer since it was written on the gate pass which i had to return before leaving, but i do have the CL bill(which says bike security system). Should i write it to BAJAJ AUTO INDIA regarding this because again in the second service it would be the same problem.

The Pulsar uses a wet-sump lubrication, when you kick the lever few times before starting the engine, the oil gets coated over the various parts and hence less wear and tear. This is the recommended procedure during cold start in the mornings. It is mentioned in the manual too.

Dude the reason why i did'nt go for the 200 was because it lacked mileage as compared to 180 & its without the kick start, as far as 220 is concerned i would rather prefer a 225cc Karizma. All i was looking for in a bike was looks(loved the all black theme), power & average mileage.
