Gave my SR for 3rd free service today unexpectedly coz I wanted to give my vehicle for third service on Saturday as I’ll be free but today our college was declared holiday due to the death of our junior,who passed away in accident which happened near my college and he passed away due to brain dead.Hence,I thought why not give the SR for service today.So,after clearing all the bills related to home(electricity,Internet and water),I gave my SR for servicing at my preferred A.S.S Radar Motors,from where I bought my Venom.I gave the vehicle at 11:30am and got back the vehicle by evening 6pm.Due to lack of technicians,who took leave due to personal reasons,there was only one technician,who always takes care of my Venom and told him to look after my vehicle.So,I handed over the vehicle to him and left the service center and went home by metro train.Total bill I got was ₹468 that includes change of oil which costed me ₹291 and others costed me ₹177.When I went to give my SR for service,the showroom was filled with many Vespas,that too many were red and only 2 yellows were there.Apart from Vespas,mine was the only SR which came for service and there were two SR150’s(2018 pre facelift SR150 and 2018 facelift SR150) were met with an accident and 2018 prefacelift one was crashed by a tipper after 10 days of purchasing the vehicle.

Now,the odo reading is 4557 Kms as of today.

My Black Venom has completed 5000 Kms two days ago and present odo reading as of now is 5068 Kms.With my running got increased now,I'm doing around 45-50 Kms per day within city traffic.The same running will happen till June as I'll be completing my Degree final year by June and SR's running might get reduced as I'll start using the car from June onwards.All is fine with my SR150 and FE is hovering around 35-37 Kmpl within city traffic.

Black Venom(err,now changed the name to Night Fury) has run 5783 Kms and did nearly 800 Kms in a month due to my daily travel to college and tuitions.All is well with my Night Fury but one of the LED bulb got kaput and need to change it soon but I’m resisting myself to change it as I’m short of funds right now.

Planning to do solo ride on my SR150 in June as soon as I complete my degree final exams and planning to buy some goodies like new helmet worth of ₹5000-6000,gloves,jacket and boots and change the LED lights to much better ones but I’m thinking to shift back to halogen ones for sometime and modify it to Carbon ones.

My usage with SR might get reduced in June as I would be using the car all the time.

Night Fury has completed 6000 Kms and present odo as of today is 6215 Kms.

Nothing much to update about my SR150 as he is going on munching miles.And,I had removed stickers on front dome which are from manufacturer itself and front has become complete black now and I’m gonna skip 4th service as I’m planning to get annual service done in June as I’ll be completing 1 year with SR150 in July.

And completed 9 months of relationship with him now.

Doesn't skipping regular service void warranty?
Late to see your thread. I really like this scooter in fact this is the only scooter I like.
