Difficult to keep to the 40-50 km/h limit on the open road for the break-in period.

I’ve been following this thread for a while as I was looking for something that works like a motorcycle but has the characteristics of a scooter. After many permutation combinations, I finally made my decision and bought Aerox. Went to the Hebbal showroom in Bangalore on 10 Mar 23 just to inquire about the Aerox and there was a ready made one in stock in Racing Blue colour. What can I say, fell in love at first sight. Had requested a test drive but no test vehicle was available. There was a customer unit at the service center in the shade of gray and sat and felt the engine sound. Couldn’t drive it as it was a customer unit. Got ahead with booking the color Racing Blue with a delivery date of two working days. I feel like luck was on my side as the waiting time is around 1-2 months as confirmed by the SA.
On 03/13/23 the delivery of the Aerox came.
First Impression (in no particular order):
- It’s just fun to drive. I was able to flip this through Bangalore Hebbal traffic at 5pm with ease. Couldn’t feel the 126kg weight factor.
- It’s definitely an eye-catcher, especially this color Racing Blue.
- Somehow I seem to like the exhaust sound when throttled. It’s not a deep growl like Ntorq’s, but something that puts a smile on my face.
- No instruction manuals or instructions were provided upon delivery. Is that the case nowadays or did I miss it? Aerox owners please confirm.
- This might be a personal thought, but I’m used to holding the rear grab bar on a two-wheeler while pushing/reversing the bike out of a parking space. On the Aerox, the lack of a mounting bracket surprised me when I took it from the opposite direction. The deepening provided on the back takes some getting used to.
- It was found that after changing the brightness of the LCD backlight, the auto start/stop was not working. I didn’t pay much attention as it was getting dark and late. Will check again tomorrow. If others noticed, please comment.
- Difficult to keep to the 40-50 km/h limit on the open road for the break-in period. Will schedule a freeway trip over the weekend to see this beauty’s cruising capabilities.
- The rear suspension is pretty harsh and you need to be prepared when going over a bad road. You must do something about it. You’ll probably have to plan a set of RCB hangers in the near future.
