    Didn't realize it was 6 months since I initiated the thread. Work is keeping me busy anyways. A quick calculation reveals I couldve saved ~30ltrs of fuel if I had bought a 100CC bike instead of using my Activa (ignoring the car usage) - That is approximately around 2K savings which I could have made:P OR even less, considering the period I was away from home on work etc.

    Anyways, getting serious, I have made up my mind on the Centuro. It offers the best bang for your buck. Priced well & good FE coupled with a bunch of fancy features (even though people highlight cons like no service, reliability etc). Like I posted elsewhere, one of the drawbacks for the Centuro I felt was its brakes (almost with puncture less tyres & possibly a 5th gear addition - which are not really deal breakers for me in a 100cc bike). I was told that the disc brake version is around the corner & I am waiting for it.
    Centuro is a very good choice in 100 cc bikes.

The ASC is not ready to exchange it, though they agree that the old model which I own was a flop, and the worst part now they are assuring that these new bikes will not be a flop (I don,t know how can they say that).
    Also, it is my advice that don't like the meter console just by looking at it ask about the hidden inside stories, I asked the salesgirl that how much will it cost to replace the meter, at first she told me that she did not know (and who made her the salesgirl then ?),later when I told her that the meter of Rodeo (and Pantero) costs around 5k (Can you imagine ? The Mahindra guys forgot that they are making the meter for a two wheeler and not an SUV) she said that the meter of this new unrefined Goldilocks will also cost around 5k (whoa!!).
    Therefore think twice before even looking at the meter, as it is around the same price in which a normal and reliable bike can have its borekit.
    PS : Please help me in selecting between DY, Splendor Pro and Splendor +, and see my post. (I have already visited the showrooms and am taking the final call).
    Digital console for any bike is costly.
