Guys you must be wondering a good rated product but I am not recommeding it. Well reason is not the product but which the company which is inefficent, irresponsible and frankly speaking which should not be doing business at all - KINETIC.


The manufacterer of the bike, HYOSUNG had introduced a product in the market at such a price that it would have been a runaway success but alas they chose a horrible partner in KInetic.


I had purchased the bike in 2004 surprised by its price, looks and a test ride that reflected good handling of the bike. It handeled superbly in the city, on highways even on bike expeditions into tropical sancturies of south india. Not once did the bike stop, stall or falter even after a skid on a dirt road. It gave a consoliated average of about 40-45km/L. I literlaly sold the bike for scrap just for one reason - VIRTUALLY NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT/SPARE PARTS.


First the good points. The bike actually has a heart of a cruiser and is robust, can take punishment. But it had been presentedand tweaked as a racer. This novel presentation worked quite well in the city as well on the highway. Pick-up was good. handling and control in the city was pretty easy. The seat, both for rider and pillon was wide and very comfortable. The instrument console was awesome. No other indian bike has had such wide and intelligent display of instrument panel which included a gear shift indicater which presented which gear was the bike being driven in.


Now the bad ones. I have made amply clear what the worst drawback was. Other issues in the bike was the engine vibrations, very poor dampening. The rear view that the company provided were stylish but made of brttle fibre glass and broke easily could hav beed mounted on the visor. The dealer from whom I purchased the bike had very poor customer handling just like Kinetic, made me wait for weeks then delivered the bike with a twisted handle and a loose footrest. Another drawbwck was the front number plate which was fixed just above th front weehl and wud strike the mudgaurd often.


All in all it was a fairly gud product which if it would have been develoed and worked on would hav prooved to be an acheivement for Kinetic. But for whtaevr reasons the customers were virtually duped.
