Second service update:

I wanted to change the oil at around 4000 kms, but couldn't do it due to tight work schedules and personal commitments. The bike recently had its 2nd free servicing at 5850kms. Basic maintenance was done as per the owner's manual. Post the oil change, the engine feels smoother at lower rpms, thought not very noticeable. The engine holds 1.5L of oil. The Pro Honda oil comes in 1L cans. Got the 0.5L back. The servicing amount came out to be approximately Rs 2300. I had missed out on the Italian GP sprint due to work. Caught up to it while my bike was getting serviced at PCMC BigWing.

The front brake lever feel is not very confidence-inspiring. The original Nissin brakepads had a few thousand kms life left. But swapped those with EBC HH ones anyway at Pitlane Mundhwa. I would say the brake lever feel has slightly changed, not necessarily improved. Braking performance has certainly improved though. Now the bite is progressive initially and gets sharper the more the lever is pulled. The ABS kicks in quicker now. I think grippier tyres would make a large difference in performance with these brake pads. Would see whether the feeling improves with a few adjustments.

Damage to wallet - Rs. 4250.

P.S. I don't see the attached images while editing the post in the textbox, due to which I'm unable to order/align the images in between the text. Is the feature not available on mobile browsers?
