Thank you Neil. However, I have already paid for the Z900 and will pick it up this coming week. I will keep this in mind for the future, ever hoping that there will be a zuki big bike showroom in Kochi.

Cheers!

Congratulations. Welcome to the Kawasaki Kochi club.

Which colour you are going for?

Thank you. I found the special edition-red too flashy for my taste, hence went for the black with the green trellis. I abhor the Kawasaki green, thankfully, the black colour version has only a tolerable smidgen of green.

Is there a Kwaker riding group / community in these parts?.

Cheerio!

Ofcourse there is. I believe they'll add on the delivery day.

Default Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT - A foray into the world of adventure biking

First Service of 1000 KMS on 06.Apr.2019@APCO Suzuki Service Center, Kozhikode



The service appointment was taken. Before that had ordered radiator guard, hand guards and crash guards from BikeNBiker. Radiator guard was delivered to Trivandrum but others were delivered to service station, which was a wise decision as forgot to take the radiator guard with me.
As the purchase was done at the last minute had to goto the courier office to collect it. Got it by 11am and the service started. The service person Mr. Sajith was very helpful and my sales person Mr. Nandhan worked tirelessly co-ordinating with the courier and even took pains to get the items from courier office.


I'm very happy with the service rendered except that it is very far from my home and they don't have the Suzuki Specific oil.

Checking the angle of Hand guard?

Hi kozhissery,

I have been following your thread but just never got the opportunity to respond here. Congratulations for the wonderful machine that you have!

I have to admit the more I see your bike in that White-Blue avatar the more it is growing on me. Personally, liked the Golden-Black scheme but this probably looks better in person. Again, thank you for sharing your detailed experience here.


Thanks,

aghate
