    That is true...it's even worse when you corner the bike at speeds of 80kmph..we faced this while on a ride to escort the GIR 1 riders from goa to the karnataka gate..the bikes are very light and tend to get out of control..

    Hello everyone... Has anyone used any performance mods in Dio? I remember someone in the old Xbhp having used a K&N air filter, but I did not get any details in the newer Xbhp. Besides that, has anyone used a fully synthetic engine oil for Dio? I am planning to use Valvoline Premium (fully synthetic) for my bike... Anyone with prior experience... please share... Waiting for your reviews...

    I own a 7-9 month old dio.
    Nothing out of the world

    Underpowered engine

    Doesnt carry my mom and dad with conviction
    My dad always complain about its lack of power

    Milege is a paltry 30-32kmpl...

    Added to that I wonder who designed the rear foot panels....

    Are they there to give some stretching excercise.....
    They are one of the most awkwardly placed foot rests on any machine in India.....

    Less mileage depends on lot of factors. Riding conditions, the way one rides the bike, regular service of the bike, and tuning of the bike.

    If you feel the bike is running good and service at required intervals has been done, then check the riding habit. Try to ride most probably around 40-50 kmph which will give the max mileage. The acceleration should be linear and not sudden bursts.

    If the bike is not serviced properly, immediately do so.
