Add to it a rear disc brake (petal) and give it fuel injection and you have a winner, which gives you the most effortless & fatigue-free ride on a geared bike (best Low-End-Torque). Add to this the fact that you can get almost 50 mileage if you want economy ; do zero to sixty pickup in a flashing 4.35 seconds ; achieve a top speed of 126 when you feel zippy and stop in 11.2 meters without any wavering, and all this for Rs.74,243/- on road in Pune and you’ve got everything you asked for. Well…almost ! </li></ul>
