    Completed 5000 KMS

    Recently completed 5000 kms with my Kushaq and it has been a bliss, the engine gearbox combo is great, it gives you lots of confidence on the highway, headlights work well during night, there is ample leg space as well, quality of interior is good, chassis is really well tuned.
