Ride it til you have good grasp of riding, around 3k miles, then upgrade to something like sv650.

Reminds me of the days I tried getting more power out of my 49cc moped, which had about 1hp. I wanted to raise its top speed from 21mph to 30mph. It was a rather trivial goal. Take Z's advice: get a good grasp of all the aspects of riding and upgrade later. A more powerful bike is probably the most efficient way to get more power, and learning how to ride is the most efficient way to make it go faster.

Your from India right? My advice given the Huge amount of older two strokes running around , that are cheap,fast, and easy to work on. Sell that sucker and pick up a Rajdoot Yamaha RD350. seriously the rd's a great little bikes I have an american model, and with a few mods, like expansion chambers, and port work and those puppies can see high 30's low 40's hp, which in such a small bike makes for a very fun ride. Be sure to find the HT model of the rajdoot as it is closer to the real japanese spec of the bike, meaning more power.

2 strokes rule.

Yeah dude an older Rajdoot will eat that hero alive in a straight line, my rd can do 160kph and basically the only mods have been expansion chambers, better reed valves, and filters.

This guy has tons of info on the Indian RD's and lots and lots of preformance parts.

It will get beaten by the Ambassadors (Indian-manfactured cars) off the line.

Anywhere with heavy traffic, you need a reasonably torquey bike to get moving away from cars.

Hey, I'd take something that gets 80+ miles per gallon any day!
