    So new photolog coming up in a while. Somehow I still feel am missing some photos, but that apart, rest is done..

    I dont know whether theres any bigger curiosity on the forum, then it was on the streets. Never have I seen people getting mad to see a bike up close and so personal! Never experienced such a madness. Have to give it to HH for this..


    Mehul..your all fine na? hope you dint bump your head somewhere. "Never experienced such madness". All this for a ZMR???? After 6 years this is the best they come up with and your actually giving it to HH for this??

    Default zmr update...

    well i have done around 1100 km now and my zmr is giving me average of 38-40 kmpl....... i was expecting atleast 45........

    the fairing has a small scratch now, thanks to the autorickshaw.......wat i did i put a little touch up paint using the brush...

    really the big fairing needs to be take cared very well..

    however engine performance is fine and no cold start issues yet...as it is fi now.

    Thats a bad FE but dont worry, there is still a lil bit running in left or am i being overoptimistic
    You rode as the company suggested? Keeping the bike under desired speeds till 1000 kms were done. 38 is way less than what mags quoted. Keep us updated on FE part.
    Sorry to know about scratch on fairing, its so damn big and its difficult to save it from morons. Be careful parking in parking lots.

    Its a RTMI (real time mileage indicator)- total bakwaas
    At one instant it may show 50-60, next second it may show 20-30. It depends entirely on how much throttle you give and which gear you are in.
    Its not a avg fuel consumpn- kms travelled/petrol used.

    the real time indicator is the worst gadget........one time it will show 45 and sometime depending upon speed it may show even 70-80.....

    i think they must incoporated a average fuel consumption indicator......

    i have break in my bike well.....with max speed of 80 km reached 5-7 times....

    i will wait for 500 km more else i will go to svc and check wats the problem....

    even my zma-r gives me 42 kmpl.....i m expecting 45 + from this 1 lac machine.

    +1, i have experienced this in my car and only avg fuel consumption indicator is useful. Instant one shows haywire readings. Wouldnt have posed much problem for HH because ZMR has a nice digital console and engineers could have found a way out.
    i will wait for 500 km more else i will go to svc and check wats the problem....

    I understand your agony.
    Yeah its a FI version and most mags have claimed it to be more efficient than ZMA-r. So you did break in the way companies suggest, nice.
    I did the hard run in and happy with FE- though mine is a diff bike
    Why dont you contact the other sole owner of ZMR, Mohsin, maybe he can tell what FE is he getting.

    Can anyone give an insight on how svc people tune FI bikes? For carbd bikes they fiddle with AFR etc.

    I think the RTMI will help u in improving your riding habits to get the max FE.

    Wait till the bike is run-in properly before concluding about mileage. It will take sometimes second service too for the bike to settle in properly.

    Here is the anwer for the use of RTMI.
