Re: MY ? ?ACHIN ?ENDULKAR ? JUST LANDED BY THE JET ? Sathya, i am in love with my Jet as well. About the drive, this has been my 3rd long drive in less than a month and every time, nobody else has even sat in the drivers seat, let alone drive it. My dad is an avid driver as well, but he aint gettin the oppurtunity to get drunk on my Jet's Power(as of yet). That says it all. Its too fun to drive and im not gonna just sit and watch sitting on the passenger seat. I just love the 3rd gear. If u need acceleration, there it makes you zoom. If u need to slow down, it comes to the fore again. The jet moves like a knife in butter. The sound that the engine makes is like a smooth butter chicken (sorry vegetarians) going through ur taste buds. You just feel so powerful when u press that pedal. The last drive i went to was around 230 km on one side. 50 percent roads were really good. around 30-40 km stretch was non-drivable, filled with million potholes. Near the destinations, there were a few ghats like roads, and the engine, not even once felt underpowered. It climbed the slopes without any problems at all and still had more power in store. The most interesting thing i noticed after my first trip (1400kms) , my FE shot up like anything. You must have already seen the pictures of the FE. Its gone up towards 16 in the city, but im generally getting around 14-14.5. Highway FE has been great as well. I think, the engine has really opened up since the first trip. Overall, i have done 2300kms in exactly a month (i got my hands on it on the 3rd dec).
