the mumbai to Sholapur section is great. Solapur to hyderabad is pretty average mostly. Some sections are bad but still manageable if you are driving before sun set. Budget for 13-15 hours of travel time. I mostly manage it in around 14 hours. Have a safe trip.

Thanks for the update! Leaving early in the morning would save me some crucial time then, Also road after solapur is 2 lane? or 4?
Should reach by late evening if i leave early in the morning then.

Thanks!
As long as you do this stretch in the daytime, it shouldn't be a problem
Given its a duke 200, overtaking manoeuvres shouldn't be a problem as long as oncoming headlights aren't switched on

And take care of the duke rims ( not sure if they are as sturdy as the bullet rims) Hope this helps. Also, setup the suspension to something a little softer than your usual city commute setting.
PM me if you need more info.

Thanks for the info guys! it was a great help. Just got back to Pune, took 8.5 hrs from here to HYD, 9 on the way back. As you said, Pune to Solapur was great, the rest of it was quite bad except a few patches. Duke performed flawlessly, had a very good time on the good roads

I wish it was the other way around "quite good except few patches" if not good at least in decent shape. Will be driving down on 31st in my Fabia. Any words of caution? Can you share pics of the bad roads if you've any ?

Okay here are my observations.

Pune to Solapur is fantastic, except for a small diversion stretch near Tembhurni. Otherwise the road is super smooth, easily doable in 3-4 hrs depending on your speed.

Once you take a left from the Solapur byepass on to the road towards Omerga, the road condition deteriorates rapidly. Especially from Solapur to 10kms after Naldurg is quite bad. It will be very difficult to maintain a good average speed here. Once you reach Omerga, the good sections start, i.e. with construction going on in 1 side, other "constructed roads" are opened for both way traffic. You will find a lot of diversions, interspersed with good and bad sections of roads. Karnataka stretch is mostly good, but please take care over the monumental speed breakers which have been constructed in a few places. Rest of the roads are pretty much similar, good and bad sections all mixed together. I would strongly suggest you to cover the stretch after solapur during daylight. Early start would be best as the small towns will also have less number of people on the roads.

Hope this helps!

Thanks asivan. That's more than I could ask for. I've planned to leave early ~5:30AM from Pune. So hoping to cross Solapur by 9AM. I'm well aware of the village traffic once the Sun is out.

It's surprising to see that we do not have alternate route options that are in better condition, to compensate for NH9. Wondering if it should even be called an NH, atleast the Solapur-Hyd stretch. Will share my views once I reach Hyd on 31st.

Haha, this is exactly the thought I had. There is ongoing construction by L&T in a few areas and I hope that this will be done in the coming year. However, there are a few sections where even earthwork has not started, looks like its going to be long wait for proper roads there.

I started from Pune at 5:00, crossed Hadapsar at 5:20 and reached solapur by 8:30. Finally reached hyderabad by 1:30 PM. But yes, me being on the bike would be faster between Solapur and HYD, but slower between Pune and Solapur.

Honestly, I feel it may not finish until the end of 2017. I know how slow the infra projects progress in MH, even if TS and KA stretch completes MH part would just be dug with MEN AT WORK boards.

Did you feel tired at any point in time, due to bad roads? Or did the duke just ate it all? I remember doing the solapur-hyd stretch,until miyapur, in about 3.5hrs 3yrs ago when that part of the road was in awesome condition. 5hrs on bike, meaning I have to plan for similar or little more time on the wheel.

Yeah it was a bit tiring due to the hard seat, especially in the bad stretches. I couldn't go really fast as I was worried about the rims and about getting punctures, thankfully neither caused any problems. I made it a point to take a 5 min break every 150 kms or so, that helped a lot. But I'm sure it will be way more comfortable in a car though

The current road condition (29-12-2015) from solapur to Hyderabad via Omerga - Humnabad - Zaheerabad, Is worst really! This 220 km all the way till hyderabad is a pain to drive on, I will post a detailed update soon.

How is the road condition of the SH4 via kalaburagi - Akkalkot?

Its around 30-40 kms more but i really don't know the road condition, I have no clue even if its a single lane or double lane, Any help would be appreciated, Since it will help me make a decision while returning back.

Pune to Solapur is the best though. Work is Almost completed.

Would you recommend taking an alternate route ? I'm starting early tomorrow.

If you know anyone from Hyderabad contact them and ask about the SH 4 road condition, Its about 30 kms longer but could be worth it if the road is atleast not under construction or doesn't have lot of potholes.

Still if you cannot find out any information about the SH4, Keep aside atleast 5-6 hours only for the 220 kms stretch, Depending on how much can you abuse your car by going faster over bad roads, Also please start early to avoid driving on this stretch after sunset, Its really dangerous!

Please take the advice of not driving on this route in the night seriously.
