Well these problems WERE present in 2009 model. My Cousin bought the 2010 model of Dhoom 70 about a month ago. Before saying anything further, i should tell you that he is a mechanic himself, and he owns a Huge Bike Spare Parts Shop, he is in this business for about 6 years and i think he knows enough to make a worthy decision. So ... he bought a 2010 model & after completing its running, his remarks were:
"Agar koi China ki bike (after CD70) leni hay to Sirf Dhoom 70".
And once said in Pujabi:
"Yaar ais bike nu painjaa laan da bara maaz aa reya a"
I drove it myself and I can safely say it holds much better power than a Honda CD-70.
Anyway ... My vote is definitely a Dhoom 70.
