Electrical issues

My Nova 115 cc has never properly charged the battery, as I always had to charge it manually.  It is a 2005 machine, 8500 Km's.  Finally I decided to inspect why it was not charging.  It appear that the alternator (magneto) has 3 windings,1 for all the running lights, 1 for the CDI ignition ...Read More

It is an absolute Dis-appointment!!

I bought NOVA 135 in January 2006. I bought it primarily based on the specifications as there was no Battery start vehicle in this category.During the first month of operation itself the Battery gave away. I had to kick-start the vehicle every time which was a herculian task.The service ...Read More

Dreamt of riding my own two wheeler jumping across the pothole filled Mumbai roads in style. Scraching the head till the last hair,become a proud owner of a brand newNOVA fooled by the catchy advertisements. Never rode any vehicle barring the trustworthy bycicle, took the nova pushing to the nea...Read More

In the present day, motorbikes are not a means of necessity but a luxury or just plain ol' way of convenience. The enthrallment of buying your first set of gears can definitely be head spinning. You may be one of them who wants to swing leg over, turn that accelerator and feel the breeze of freedom flowing through your hair locks. But just hold your metal horses, before you spend your money on machine, here are few critical issues that you need to resolve.

Nova. Nothing compares to you!

Nov 08, 2005 02:43 PMRead

We purchased our Nova in June-2003, just before the 135 version was out from Laxmi Automobiles in Nerul, Navi Mumbai. We confess, we went to the showroom to buy an Activa (we did not know of the split then) which we were very much decided on because we have tried it before. The Kinetic sales guy...Read More

Kinetic Nova 115CC is agood scooter, its got good power which will give very nice city ride. Handling is not so great as it tends to loose control at high speeds.
