  • Bajaj's Tricky approch to the market with 4 valve tec. But same feeling like xcd135
    A Sub Inspector got promoted the honour as IPS officer without proper examination
    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handle bars to the seat.

        I didn't say about the front of the bike to be in straight line. I said that the rear tyre hugger (mud guard) is not in one line with the rear tail lamp section. Please check the rear portion closely.

        I think my bike's autochoke is not working. I have to manually rise the throttle to get it started in the morning. But when it is warm, i.e., after a brief ride, it starts in one kick or one crank, no problem at all.

        • P135 has Max. torque at 6500rpm, and Bajaj is saying 'no need to change gears in low RPM' w/o specifying torque at low RPMs....PS: Ambition had max. torque equal to that of P135 at just 4500 rpm....So LET is poor on P135 and not great for city commuting.

            Oh dear, here we go again? You speak as if you have seen the torque curve graphs of both machines and thus are entitled to pass judgment on it. So did you see these graphs? Or more important, did you test drive the P135?

            If the answer is "no" to either of these questions, you may want to consider taking at the very least a test drive before commenting like this.

            • ^^ I did test drive dude ! And since I had owned Amb135 for close to 5 years I am dead sure the torque is no-where near to good old Ambi !! And what do you expect the graph to look like ? Max. torque at 1000 rpm and same at 6500 rpm (a flat line?) ??

                Like a v6 diesel engine from some truck? Anyways, if you have test ridden it, then I am sure you have a point there.

                  yes, the tyre hugger and the tail light are in one line

                  auto choke is perfect in my bike

                  • I did a TD of this bike yesterday..

                    I have the same feelings like Vipin here.. I wonder how can they call it traffic cut through bike.. their is no real power available below 5k rpm & bike feels sluggish @ lower RPM's.

                    Just after this I had a TD of P180 what a contrary it was right from the word go the torque was evident.

                    • The Two Wheeler Torque Monsters on our Indian streets are the Royal Enfield Beasts (Bullets and Thunderbirds)... Tons of Torque is available on demand right from walking speeds. But that doesn't make the Royal Endielfd's ideal Traffic Cutters do they..??

                      After riding long legged bikes like the P220 one can appreciate how the nimble and light footed P135LS perfectly fits the bill as a traffic cutter.

                      "Sports" bikes are meant to be revved hard... and hence the LS "Light Sports" tag for the P135. Now is somebody is seeking a "commuter-ish" traffic cutter in the P135.. he might be dissappointed.

                        I believe it is not good to compare a Bullet with P135 here.. Bullets are not meant to cut through traffic they are made for different segment altogether which is to lazily cruise all day long without a sweat at speeds of 80, 90kmph..

                        Ideal traffic cutter should have good low end torque like FZ, ZMA & if it is not their is no point calling it Traffic cutter from the power band prospective..

                        If we look at it from the weight & nimble perspective - Then I totally agree with you p135 meets all its criteria..

                          Nobody is calling it a Traffic Cutter from the power band perspective.

                          Even the Splendor+, Discover bikes have good low end torque.. just that these ideal desi commuters doesn't come in fancy clothes like the FZ and ZMA and is limited by 50-100 cc's to be termed under "Sporty" category.

                          From the power band perspective, the P135LS is similar in character to the R15, the Ninja 250R and International sporty bikes.

                          The "LS" makes it quite clear, the P135 is a "Light" bike with a true "Sporty" character. Ahem.. 4 Valves/Cylinder
                          Probably the P135LS misses a "Full Fairing" to drive home the perspective that its a "Sporty" bike.

                            I agree with you here.. on a contrary I will tell you what advantage it has in city, this bike can do very low speeds in top gear without knocking.. I really liked it & I am sure it can do wonders beyond 5k rpm with the help of 4 valves..

                            I couldn't get a empty open stretch to check it fully..

                            PS - Oh yeah bajaj is calling a traffic cutter

                              Yes, the P135 can indeed do slow speeds in top gear.. but then to really enjoy the 4 valves one needs to go over around 5000 rpm, a good stretch along with a few twisties thrown in.

                              But its true that in real life.. most of us are mostly confined within traffic infested roads.

                              • Correction !

                                I read Overdrive and Bike India mags, found that max. torque is indeed developed at 7500 rpm and not 6500rpm (as I believed).
