LML adreno.

looks: 9/10 ( i still regret why i didn't throw away thhose flame styled stickers when i bought it. seem too old to do it now). still it's a head turner among regular 100CC bikes.

performance: 10/10. never ever feel like it's a 100CC bike. weight is a dampner though.

mileage: 10/10. i have gotten upto 78-80 kmpl. only 5% of time less than 60.

comfort: 8/10. the seat is not good for long rides. rest is good. road grip is awsome. wheelbase longer than CBZ i believe.

headlight/electricals 8/10: since the light is inside the visor (or for some other reason) nobody is able to focus it properly.

maintenence: 10/10. got servicing after every 3-4K ms. and never ever the bill crossed 500. only major replacements: battery, rear spider and front bearings.

on the whole: 9/10.

how much i love it? can't express. only reason looking for a change is i want a bigger bike, cruiser may be. might keep this one still.

well thats really something hard to achieve when u ride a bike like a Hayabusa hmmmmmm wonder who has the patience other than Auto Mag Test riders to ride for fuel efficiency. best i saw was the bike did 119kms for 15 ltrs.

forgot to mention "ridden the way a hayabusa had to be"

They did a mileage test in the indian ishtyle! That was sure funny to test the mileage on the world's fastest bike like a 100cc bike, but it was informative....atleast I got to know whats the mileage of a 1300cc engine...
a rip-off session on te same bike will drap it to a good 10kmpl!

same applies to 100 CC bikes too.
manufacturer claiming 100 and biker getting 40 is not unusual. and the only difference is he way bike is used (abused in some cases)

i have seen people speeding on scooters in second and third gear......dunno what they were thinking
