Congratulations Navendu, nice choice of car and colour. Does that mean your Bullet and Fiero take shelter for some time?

Congrats Nav! Good to finally have to see ownership /long term reviews of Punto 1.4 petrol. I am sure as with all Fiat engines, your long term reviews may be different from TD reviews. This car is in my long term radar.
From the linea reports, I see that the 1.4 engine seems to free itself after first servicing , so do not worry about the low performance as of now.
Enjoy your beauty, and keep posting your experience.
Thanks

Anytime. I don't think I'll be able to shift to top gear on any of my vehicle to reach the central celebration spot.

As Techo said you missed CBZ & ZMA. While Techno also missed the RX.
Talking about bike's resting in shelter, that's not gonna happen. Now that I have resumed posting here, wait for a beautiful "bike" trip log, soon.

I am also hoping for things to improve after first servicing. Will try to share my ownership experience in as best possible way as I can.

I knew about the CBZ but didn't know he got himself a ZMA as well?

Well I first typed RX & CBZ then RX, CBZ & ZMA then I thought the RX is not with you any more(didn't see it last time around).

Anyways So I guess this is your current garage

- Punto 1.4 E-pack
- TVS Fiero
- HH ZMA
- HH CBZ
- Yamaha RX
- RE Bullet Electra

Phew.

Due to lack of parking space RX is parked at a friends place and now one of the other bikes will be in office.
If talking about the entire garage, please add my LML NvSpl to it as well, though used by my dad, I sometimes can be spotted on it (if you look around carefully). And it is TVS Suzuki Fiero, not just TVS Fiero.

Sell them a buy a Yamaha (Team Fiat Yamaha), and with your AGV you'll feel like Rossi. BTW I'm a Yamaha Fan, I own a RD.

congrats nav,

Nice bold decision to go with Punto 1.4 contrary to the popular choice (MJD)!
Will be interesting to see in-city mileage figures of GP.

BTW Linea 1.4 is giving 10-12 in city.
