    RTR vibes are higher, but it vibrates in much lower frequency.
    AS on the other hand has tingling feel occasionally.
    RTR's panels never make any hum or noise. But AS and RS is exactly the inverse.
    AS Engine feels more refined and less stressed at higher speeds, I'm happy with it. But missing the low end punch of RTR.
    A bit of low end punch would have been awesome (around 4k RPM). Power feels too linear. Top end whack is extremely satisfactory in AS.
    Braking is good enough nothing to complain, Did a full DIY brake rebuild last week. Rear feel excessively sharp.

    Thanks for your reply ... What will be your choice for touring in & around South India ... I bet to choose RTR because of their Tank Range (or) mileage and ABS...

    Hi Folks,
    Had some time to debug the tachometer issue which I previously posted.
    The culprit was the ignition coil (primary one, single output)
    The previous owner had installed some other model coil or a counterfeit one.
    Cleaned all connectors and bung terminals coated them with WD-40.

    Did a whole wiring overhaul costed me as follows:
    HT coil - 194/-
    Zip ties - 60/-
    Insulation tape - 30/-
    Wire sleeve or jacket - 50/- (various sizes)
    WD-40 - 90/-
    Lot of patience...

    It all started from diagnosis where my handy DMM helped me.
    Where i checked Crank position sensor aka pulse coil.
    Stator coil was also checked.
    RR unit and battery health was also noted.
    Also got some leads from a Service technician regarding key areas to check.
    Tracked down the wires replaced them with same gauge automotive grade wires.
    Since it is a pre owned vehicle I did the above said checkups.
    This gave me a peace of mind as I got to know what's gone wrong and where.
    Also other updates include:
    Coolant reservoir tank replaced due to the plastic got brittle and foggy level indicator.
    Also installed Minda K95 horns with separate wiring harness.
    Both brakes got a minor overhaul (fluid flush and bleeding).
    Front pads replaced and rear one got cleaned.
    Lever feels much more responsive now.
    Cone Set is yet to be replaced will soon post a DIY guide.
    Wheel bearings and seals including. (Will do as I replace the tyres)

    I just wanna register this update here as someone in the future will find this helpful.
