    looks really good.. a 150cc scooter is much welcome … understandably, it wont have good mileage, but power should be good.

    Woaah! I would love to own this baby.. I had been dreaming of BMW C 600 SPORT or the C 650 GT, of course they are hell costlier and out of my affordability and very much of course this Hero would not be in the same league, but a scooter I had been waiting for.. If priced around 70-80, this red-bird would be a super hit. I hope it comes soon..
