Best daily commute | Review after 21kms

I've owned the bike for more than 10 months, crossed 21k km. Dirt, tarmac, notorious Indian potholes, you name it...This will tackle it all, with the exception that the shock travel is relatively less. I never had to change any of the cables - throttle, clutch. Upon inspection, the cable wires appear to be intact, not showing any signs of failing any time soon. Ironically, the chain and sprockets seem to be in good shape too...Thanks to the linear power delivery, and also to proper lubing (btw i don't use motul or any fancy brands...Just the usual gear oil...Just make sure that all the links are properly lubed up... It's not because i'm a miser... Found out that the usual gear oil is much smoother with the only downfall being getting dirty much quicker).. Back to the subject... The bike is a pleasure to drive, and of-course there are vibrations, but manageable. The most I've travelled in a day is 650km...From Bangalore to thiruvalla, covered the entirety in 9 hrs since i was in a hurry. I had maintained high speeds for hours without breaks, the bike didn't give any niggles, no loss of power. Brakes could have been better, lacks the bite. Plastic quality is okay after almost a year..No rattles or strange noises. Stock tires are not the best.. The mrfs will slide when throttle is applied even on a dry corner, but the threads are intact after 21k... I suppose it'll run another 6k before it reaches the wear mark. Bajaj svc will insist on air filter replacement only after 15k, but the filter gets clogged right after 5k. Replacement is necessary then itself, but not a problem as filter element cost just 250rs. Brake pads too were replaced every 10k, around 600 for both pads. No electrical or lighting issues to date. But that doesn't depend on the miles but only on the abuse of time. Time will tell how the vehicle will persist over years to come. So far, I'm happy that i spent my money on a reliable machine, which cranks right up every single day...Just hope that it remains as it is for the upcoming years. But yeah, we live in a realistic world where wear, tear and friction will take a toll. Service and Maintenance: Change air filter every 5000km, fuel filter every 10000. Clean the throttle body every 10000 and make sure that the tops is calibrated. Make sure to clean the spark plugs at 20000, in case of replacement, replace all.
