Hi Guys,
I took delivery of my Bullet yesterday. I have only one word to say that I am REALLY REALLY SATISFIED. Before going into the details let me pen down a brief history of my two wheeler experience. I had a 1999 model bullet which we used it for around 5 yrs. But it had light crank weight and was a bit uneasy to drive. We sold it in 2004 and in 2006 I bought a pulsar. But I was not happy with that too. I sold it in 2007. The next one was a Suzuki Access 125 which I bought in 2008. It indeed was a good scooter to drive especially in city, but it gave me another problem. Back pain! So I sold that one month back and by this time I had learned a good lesson that, there is nothing which can replace the comfort of Bullet. So I booked my bullet last week and got it delivered yesterday.

Since I haven't used the bull for around 5yrs, and used other types of two wheelers, it was a little bit confusing initially. But everything came back to track in 1hrs drive.

Now about the bullet. It costed be Rs. 79,232 OTR in Cochin. When I took the delivery the odo read 15 kms. I had to pay 1695 for the Crash guard, Sari Guard, ladies handle etc. From the showroom, I straightaway took him to the temple for a pooja and then to home.

Yesterday night I couldn't sleep for two reasons. One for the excitement of taking him to my office and another big reason - answering a hell lot of questions by my elder son who is 7yrs old. He is very eager to know about each and every part of bullet. He asked me whether I can drop him to his school in bullet. But I asked him to wait for two days time. When his school van came, to my surprise his friends jumped out from the van to see the bullet. Then only I came to know about the publicity my son has given about the bullet.

Today morning it showed a small starting trouble. I had to kick 5-10 times to start it. May be the climate was very cool. Lets see how is goes tomorrow.

I will update with more reviews and pics during the weekend.

Thanks
Congratulations Sudheer.

Cheers,

Jay

Cool ! Congrats on the new Bull , The best part which i felt after the recent ownership is that the Character is not matchable by any other Toy in india
It truly gives the beat off by his thump .

Let the boys, have their toys
For the Real men, It take a Real Ride or bike

lol

PS : i too own many toys ( Pulsar 180 - XCD 125 - Ambition 135 - Splendor )

Congratulations on the new Bull, Sudheer. One small doubt though, I do know what a saree guard is but whats a ladies handle?

@bantejas, my starting procedure is like

1. I kick the lever a few times before switching the ignition on with fuel cut off
2. I switch the ignition on, fuel on decompress and ensure that the ammeter reads zero
3. Kick the lever to start.

Is there any mistake...?

Congratulations, looks like you have gone back to your first love,

Just a word of caution, since yuou have been a Bullet user, you would know about the heat generated on the Bend Pipe.

Be Careful with your 7 year old, I have two brats at home and it is very difficult for me to have them keep their hands off the wrong parts, especially the bend pipe. I have seen them try to hold it while sitting down/Squatting to look at the engine bay.

Cheers!
