It should be mentioned in the manual. Generally, T-BHP recommends 1000KMs of taking it very easy and then taking the engine to higher and higher RPMs until you hit the 2500KM mark. Check the run-in thread.

@yashodeep:
Manual recommends run-in for the first 1000kms. It also recommends avoiding any hard braking for first 300 kms. check page 180 of the manual.

Info provided is sparse, recommend you read the run-in thread in tbhp.

If the higher and higher RPM means upto 2500 rpm mark, then I do not think why it should be an issue to push it upto that. IMHO, Substantially higher rpm cut fuel efficiency and should not be ideally driven at, new or old. Further, below 2500 rpm can be driven, new out of the showroom or old.

2500KM. Not RPM.

You run the first 1000KM, say under the 2500RPM mark. Then till 1500KM, you take it to 3000RPM. Then till 2000KM, you take it to 3500RPM. By the time you hit 2500KM, you would have explored the entire rev range.

Will definitely read the manual. So far completed 850 kms and have been driving under 2500 rpm. The problem is that the ANHC is so light and nimble that it's very difficult to stay within 2500 rpm / 60 kph.

Great buy Yashodeep. A friend of my has also bought an ANHC & he's getting a fuel efficiency of 15 - 16 km/L in city driving conditions.

Congratulations on the new car and good FE! The error with the built in FE meter in ANHC will not be more then 0.5 kmpl as per my experience.

Congarts, Yashodeep on new ANHC. I also got one about 2 weeks back. As per manual, the run-in period is 1000KM and you shouldnt exceed beyond 2500RPM.
Cool alloys.I just feel like having them on my car also.
Which brand are they and for how much? What all have you accessorized it with? It seems you have got Sun-films.

in my case after 2 fills and tankful calculations i have seen that the error is around 1.4 kmpl.

First time i got 11.3 and display showed 12.7, 2nd time i got 11.2 and display showed 12.6.

Cool Good set of alloys

By far the best set of alloys I have seen on the ANHC. those wheels look even better than the ones offered by Honda at 11k per wheel

I spent 2months searching for a good set of alloys for my ANHC before settling for Lenso SC05. but i have to agree these look better than the lensos. Congrats mate, I'm J
