    2. Copying as it is from the manual : "RUNNING IN - Help assure your motorcycle's future relaibility and performance by paying extra attention to how you ride during the first 500 Kms. During this period, avoid full-throttle starts and rapid acceleration".

    Well, not sure how much it will help; For C250R & N250R, every 6K; for Rx, I use Motul & the engine oil interval is about 7-8K & after which I can't risk ; Activa its 3K

    BTW, what's the engine oil grade? Is it 20W-40? Mineral or SS?

    As far as I remember when I owned CBZ xtreme, it used 10/15W30 Semi-synthetic. The oil make was Idemitsu. The 6000 Km interval started with CBZ xtreme ( Back in 2006) I guess and it was carried on to other models that followed. The oil is completely fine till 5000-5500 km if driven sanely. With Motul or Castrol Fully synthetic can go upto 8500-9000 km.

    better change it every 2000- 2500 km . Better engine smoother revs trust me you won't regret it. For the first time change change it at 150 - 200 km . So that metal particles are removed from engine.

    So, the owners of 'Impulse' ...how does the engine feel like? Even though, it has a 'Hero' labeled engine, it's basically a tuned Honda engine... Also, the product is a Honda sold in Brazil as the NXR 150 Bros, but it has been launched in India purely as Hero Impulse 150 and is a result of a new agreement wherein Hero simply pays royalty to Honda without using the Honda name...

    ^^ Its not a replica of bros. As far as I know, the engine is different from the NXR Bros but who cares...we finally have a mass market drt bike!!!

    ----------

    So, anyone finished running it in? Anyone put it to some hardcore use?

    The bike looks awesome in action. The hero ad captured the bike in some fine angles. Waiting for some more pics from you all.

    And a more detailed ride report.
