Looks really cool JK, congrats and do put up some more pics of your new steed along with a review if possible ! And why did'nt you pick it up with the front discs, how much more expensive would that have been ?

even i thought the colour would be something like P135 or the red Zma-R. but the wine red really looks awesome on the twister. the bike is looking amazing in the pic. looking forward to atleast a few more pics and the ownership experience now.

Congrats JK Sir!!

Honda could use that pic in their website in the Downloads/Wallpapers section.

Small wonder that the weather report in your local daily read as Twister on the beach!

Thanks Scorcher & Techno. The torque is awesome. My FIL was doing wheelies for first few days and hence he wasn't allowed to drive it in the eve as MIL & my wife thought he might go show it of to the gals who come to the nearby temple

An update ; I get 65kmpl now. Have covered just 300kms. I am yet to read the manual so sticking to 50kmph for now.

As I ride on...

Miss the 5th gear badly.
The head light is good than I expected.

The bike takes 8 lit on mains and 1.6 on reserve (total of 9.6lit). I was surprised at the run-in period! 500kms is all it needs. The bike has done 440kms till date and feels more smoother when I accelerate. Loving it.

Jk, how is the bike doing? Is it comfortable for two people? What about the ease of ride and pickup with two people? How is the road grip? Last but not the least, is it comfortable for the spine?

I would say it comfortable like similar bikes. I also have the Avenger and its rear seat comfort is far better.

Coz of lots of low end torque for a 110cc, it never feels strained even with two on board.

Sad that it doesnt have a parking light option and the hi/low beam switch is a funny contraption.

Mileage hovers around 60kmpl and I have covered 1000kms plus.

Sorry to ask an OT question, what's your take on the comfort of Avy? I hear few people complaining that Avy is not that comfortable for the rider. Is that true? You also seem to say the rear seat being comfortable & hence the question.

PS - Feel free to remove this question, if you consider the OT

jkdas, congrats on the Twister. 65kmpl looks good. Isn't it the same engine as in the Shine? I haven't had a TD of the Twister
