    Approved!

    I thought Hunk was no longer on sale.

    Apart from that, please don't post in sms lingo here. Avoid typing like "I wanna do this...... I wanna do dat......".
    Thanks.

    Well that's a sort of embarrassment from your part...As a XBHP ian you should first know what all bikes are there in the market..!! SO bad of you. And one more thing I want to keep you in notice is that what ever product you need for buy should be according to your requirements and capabilities...SO the needs should be specific. I wanna connect a mobile charger to my bike...Tell me what to do..And by the by you are sitting on a karizma on your profile pic..

    It have been easier for us to suggest you if you've given info about your height. Hunk is a good option indeed. Honda Cb Trigger is another one.

    Yes, at least your post does make me feel bad for my ignorance. Anyways, you can always connect a cigarette socket along with a relay to the battery. You can see the new Hero Xtreme for inspiration. It has the same as OE. And yes, I own a Karizma.

    Hunk is a comfortable bike.
    Mileage - I am getting around 45kmpl in city and 50+ on highway. But there are people who are getting more than this.
    Looks - you like the looks, thats why you booked it

    The hunk is very comfortable motorcycle with great supportive rider seat and comfortable handlebar position. Its not a highway cruiser, Mileage depends on what speed you maintain on highways, if you maintain more than 80kmph then the mileage drops to around 42kmpl or lesser (personal experience). If you prefer going for long rides and mileage is your concern then go for Suzuki GS150R which has 6 gears to keep the revs low at highway speeds and also returns better mileage

    If mileage is your concern, you can check out GSR150 and Honda Trigger.

    Hunk is definitely a good machine. Engine is tried and tested one.
    You can also have a look @ GS 150 if Suzuki Service Center is not very far away from you. The additional gear helps in highways and in better mileage.
