Rajdoot bike, I don’t think anyone might remembers this bike by Yamaha. We don’t see Rajdoot bike on road now a days. It is mainly because company itself stops manufacturing these particular bikes. But once upon a time in 90’s and before that this was the most popular bike in
Most important characteristic of Rajdoot bike’s was they were tough and highly durable, excellent load carrying capacity and above all gives high value for money. That’s why it was perfect match for Indian roads as well as Indian middle class people.
It was a total economy bike because of its low running cost, easy serviceability and high re-sale value at that period of time. So it was win – win situation for the owner.
If we talk about technical specification, it was 2 stroke 170 cc bike with kick start. Fuel tank capacity of 11.4 ltr

1. At any speed try to stay in as high gear, avoid driving in low gear as possible without bike giving jerks.
2. As much as possible reduce the use of brakes. Or keep brakes as free as possible.
3. Always keep air pressure in tires as per the recommended level because lesser air in tires creates higher resistance and consume more petrol.
4. Sleeping of clutch also contribute in wasting of petrol so keep the clutch well adjusted.
5. Change Engine Oil on recommended intervals.
6. Use genuine engine oil so there will be lesser friction in engine.
7. Clean air filter regularly.
8. Keep drive chain and sprockets regularly and lubricate it with grease.
9. Clean the carburetor regularly.
10. Clean spark plug regularly in every 2000km.
In short keep your bike and bike parts cleaned and well lubricated in regular intervals.

Every man at least once goes through such phase of life when he feels that owning a bike is must, mostly when you are in college. Why is that? Because may be we feel more passionate, adventures, wild at that time of life. And Bike is certainly more adventures than driving a car. Riding a bike gives you a feeling of freedom, when you are racing on the road, overtaking all the vehicles in your way. You feel you’re top of the world. And then there is this glamour attached to the bike, you automatically gain a image of a “Macho man”, you get priority in girls list etc. etc.
Every one of us one point of time has dream that he is riding his bike at full speed, with his girlfriend at the backseat. She is holding on to him. She is talking sweet, naughty things in his ears. And then every time he race the bike or there are speed-breakers, potholes on road he can feel her pounding on his back and he feels that the road should never end. Heavenly feeling isn’t it? It is more for experiencing yourself; it can not be explained in words. Some of us went on to buy a bike and fulfill their dreams. Some of us can’t, they just watch others and sigh agonizingly.
One of my friend just bought a bike “Avenger”, It took us 2-3 months to zeroing on it. To start with we were really naive about bike. Only thing we knew was we want to buy a bike; but we were very much confused which bike should go for. “Karizma” and “Pulser” was our first choice but that only because we have seen lot of them on road and of course there is lot of advertisement for them. When we start enquiring different people for there inputs, they start bombarding us with terms like 150cc, 200cc, mileage, average, etc. etc.
And we were very much unaware of these terms that time.
So we found out first what does these terms means and how will they affect our choice of bike.
Let’s discuss this next time……
