    Got the bike on 28th Dec, completed first service of bike yesterday at 630km.
    Bike feels light easy to ride in city surprisingly feels easy to maneuver than my ns 200.
    Engine feels refined, have some tappet noise which is still coming even after 1st service. Will check with service center later.
    Initial bite of fronk break is less, haven't tried panic breaking yet.
    1st service costed 1064 rs.

    PS: Any idea about aftermarket visor rest bike is great.Name:  IMG_20200112_161620.jpg

    Congratulations!

    I guess this is the first ownership thread. Been a long time coming....

    How is the SOCS working in heavy traffic conditions or high revving conditions? Does it heat up a lot? Curious to know this.

    No heating issue till now, the clutch case was getting hot earlier because of improper clutch adjustment from factory setting , has reduced now. Heavy traffic no heating issues, haven't revved it properly till now waiting for break in period to complete.

    Congrats on the new bike! I also own the same one and did 400 KMs so far. I recently noticed that engine oil level is exactly at low mark and I could feel mild engine vibrations at just over 3k RPM. Is it normal for a new bike to have such low level?

    No, topup the oil and inspect for any leaks.

    Mild vibration occuring in a narrow, particular band of RPM is usually resonance.

    Oil should be checked when:
    1. Bike is level.
    2. After atleast waiting for 2 minutes if the engine was running.

    If still low, topup like bpk said. Top up upto F mark and again check by idling engine for 2-3 mins and then waiting another 2 minutes.

    Usually, the level will be over F mark if engine is off for more than 15-30 minutes and, near L mark if it had just stopped after a good run.

    Awesome bike, esp the midrange. The exhaust note seemed puny though.

    The naked 250 is not in stock in all dealerships, the 250SF seems to be on offer of 20k/- off but 2019 models.

    I think the customers are not seeing value in spending rs50K more for 250cc over the 150cc model. 50k gets you 100cc more metal n oil jacket.

    Thank you guys for valuable suggestions. I got my first service done recently and fortunately there were no leaks. I went with ecstar full synthetic and I no longer feel the vibrations in handle bar, tho mild vibrations can be felt in foot pegs. Service cost was Rs. 1119.
