Good budget bike
I bought the HGR model on 31st march 2016.I have ridden 450+ km so far. Will update after 1000 km again.
this one looks almost the same as splendor NXG. The rear grab rail is divided in ismart.But still the styling is decent.The twin shades of paint look great.The black theme for alloy wheels and engine make it look different than other bikes.
Handling and comfort:
The bike steers very nicely and without any fuss.On smooth and bumpy roads handling is not an issue at all.
The shock absorbers are awesome.I could feel the difference between my deluxe and ismart every time I rode in the bumpy or rough roads.The quality of shock absorbers is very good.
The torque value may be identical to deluxe and other models but the performance of ismart is way better.Even with a pillion rider,it performed well.There was a bit of a problem with clutch when moving along a traffic while holding the first gear because there was vibration in idling range.
I was told that the new clutch is like that only,it would get better as it wears.
THE reason behind buying ismart.
I was told by mechanics that after 2000-2500km it would yield about 85 kmpl but for now it would give 65 kmpl approx.
In two litres,my ismart ran for 131.8 km which means I was able to get 65.9 kmpl when I was at total run of 300 km. which is awesome.
Will update as I run my bike for 1000 km.
