    Leaving the 1-lack premium flagship model to a lame mechanic who doesnot know how much oil to fill is completely the dealer's fault. A complaint to Hero Honda is definitely needed.

    In fact, I faced many times this problem. The mechanics who service 100 cc bikes sometimes are given the ZMAs. They do not even know how much oil it goes in the engine. Instead of .9 liter they sometimes fill 1 liter thinking that it is bigger engine.

    we love our zma/zmr no matter how slow they are , or how bad they are......we just love zma/zmr.....

    if anyone wants to do a 220 vs.zma pls go to orkut...the best place for ppl who wants to make biased comparisons....


    ok...now focussing on the zmr.....few days back i complained that my zmr is giving only 38-40 mileage......so i finally went to SVC....and told them.......and i was surprised to know that engine oil was a little low...... after first service... the stupid guy who serviced my bike even didnt fill the oil completely.....i was so much irritated......

    the service engineer told me that the engine was running a little hotter and thats why it was giving reduced mileage......

    now it has gone up to 42 mark...hope it will touch more....

    but I give a suggestion u to all bike owners that do check ur bike carefully while servicing....these craps can just do anything.....

    after a fight with svc ppl the person who serviced my bike is removed.....im also writing a complaint to hero honda about this.......

    hope this has not made any damage to the engine....
    u should have kicked that idiot................

    with regards to the zmr deliveries, its really a very very sorry state. But i think once the waiting period eases up things will be absolutely fine. I hope this time around HH does a good job of spares availability n all..
    before 1000 km i ride the bike below 80 km.....there were 3-4 ocassions when i touched 80 km mark.......after that i released the thorttle to ease down speed to 60..... in many forums i have read that during running in period there can be ocassional bursts of even 100 ...so i dont think so doing 80 km....was any issue....

    and regarding the oil , it was not even showing its mark on dip stick..

    u can imagine how much low oil there was in engine.....today im writing to HH vasant kunj for further action.

    i must have thrashed the guy badly who played with my 1 lac machine....it isnt a joke...........he could even added water in place of oil....

    imm very much irritated after this........

    ^^^^ 8 months?? now they are seriously getting comical (in a sarcastic way...) I spoke to the same person yesterday and he said its 4-5 months max irrespective of the color.... I am sure its not due to quantity that the waiting period exists but due to some thoughts of HH management..... !! god knows what!

    Hero Honda Showroom in Pune, Wakadewadi is completely vacant, not even a single bike for display of any model, they have exhausted all the stock and now are waiting for new stock, but becuase of the strike, they are not able to cope-up and are not guaranteeing any deliveries. guys from various locations can check at the dealers and check if this is because of this news

    Same here in B'luru, saw Nikhi Motors doing renovation work of interiors, not a single new bike in the showroom/basement garage.
