    - If possible, change the engine oil after 500 Kms & once after 1000 Kms.

    ^^ and keep varying your speed (upto 40-45) till 500kms. Then go for little higher speeds say 50-60 and vary your speed at that range (till 1000kms)

    no, no go for varying speed not constant. And shudden, short period (few seconds) brusts are ok.
    And also oil changing has got different opinion from different people. Changing it very early is useless according to me so change the oil now & stick to it till 500kms

    IMO never take risk,drain the old oil completely and fill it with new oil and keep it below 40 till 500kms and below 60 till 1000kms. keep it varying between 40 and 60.

    1. Stick to owner's manual, owner's manual & owner's manual. All other things such as changing at 20 Km, 200 Kms are half baked info!!
    2. Sudden short burst, before 1000 Kms is excellent to damage the engine; human psycology also attributes a little here; once experienced a short burst, one always craves for more. If done unintentionally fine, but, not a regular practice.
    3. Per manufacturer, the engine oil is to be changed once at 1000 Kms & every 3000 Km there after. However, it has been noted that there will be metal shavings from a new engine (but that's crankcase included, which is not in your case) & hence engine becomes rough; so its advised to change once during 500 Km mark. But this is necessary only if you feel the engine is rough

    Needless to say, I've a 7 yr old Activa!!!
