    Because of poor pillion comfort and various quality related issues such as oil leakage, engine seizures due to oil consumption even in new gixxer, alloy rim bend, hard gearbox, pathetic after sales service of suzuki etc.

    I used to believe in Japanese myth before i read so many threads today. I agree on this. Even I myself will go with Bajaj for my next bike. It is true that Indian manufacturers (Bajaj and TVS) have improved by miles when it comes to motorcyles

    NOTE: I have found all ASCs to be 3rd class, whether Indian or Japanese motorcycle

    [QUOTE=prasadD400;1368395]Just to boost your confidence..
    Thats my cousin brothers 1yr old p220 which successfully completed ladakh-spitti trip covereing 8500km(rode Bangalore to Bangalore).
    All he needed is just a carb adjustment in leh and same normalised in Shimla.
    It gave 38 km avg mileage during trip( he is such iron butt guy who rides @80-90/hr for 3 hrs non stop.)
    Now p220 is 40k in odo and still feels like new.
    All he done is maintained tyre pressure, proper chain lubing and adjusting. Warm up during cold start.
    Hope this helps...


    That's interesting !!
    Had you been to leh ever ? If so , please narrate it in brief ..

    This two line. Anyone who does will be very happy with any bike.

    I have used Unicorn and P220 occasionally from office colleges. I hated both.
    Reason, very bad maintenance. I thought this is usual behavior of these bike.

    Except manufacturing defect, it's owner who makes bike great or whine about having bad machine.

    Yes you're absolutely right. Take care of your beast like a baby! Then you'll love your bike
    Whichever/whatever it maybe!
