    I Buyed A CBR250r(ABS) on 19/09/2011 at 5 o clock evening,i was very happy with the bikes,,,, Then i felt smthin ws wrong with the Brakes like its was missing.. I took it to the showroom next day on 20/08/2011 and the owner of the showroom replied that it has got ABS which means it will not stop on my wish,but it will stop wenever it wants whereas i thought ABS means (ANTI-Lock Braking: tyres dont get jammed while braking),Then there was no solution fr my problem.

    Then i had a problem with the chain at only 104Km which was fixed on 26/09/2011, finally there was a knocking in the engine at 379Km.

    I was totally out of control and i left the bike in the showroom on 10/10/2011..

    From that day i have not received any call or Amicable solutions of my problem……

    I am also facing the similar problems with my Dazzler… My brake pedal was slightly damaged around 6 months back but even after repeated complaints Tajshree Honda Nagpur has always fended off my complaints by saying,"Company se parts nahi aare". Now that is totally unacceptable….

    Be prepared to be even more disappointed my friend.

    I had a small accident in January 2011 where backside of my Honda Dazzler was totally smashed. On inquiry they told me it will take around a month to source the parts. Then in February they told me they have me on Rush order. Now its almost the end of September(9 Months) and i have still not got any parts. After lot of threatening them now they have agreed to swap parts from a new bike.
