  1. Hey! Want to know what u guys think of the new Bajaj P220? My friend has the Fi model and now feels cheated! New model is faster, cheaper and has same mileage. It costs 10k less, so resale of old is affected....Shouldnt Bajaj have reduced price a bit but kept fuel injection? It is better tech than a carb so why is Bajaj doing this?

  2. Agreed Bajaj needs to improve on quality, but dont go by sales figures for the company's success.

     As of what i understand Bajaj and HH are on different strategies. While HH's profits are made from smaller margins from more bikes (100cc focus), Bajaj makes bigger margins from fewer bike (125 cc focus). So sales numbers may not be the best guide for a company's performance.


  3. Same story in Pune. No test rides. There is a lot of interest in the bike whcih is great for Yamaha but their attitude is a cause for worry. I wanted the bike before Diwali but i guess now I will wait for user reviews regarding service and after-sales because their pre-sales is just not encouraging.....


  4. Vibhor yaar, no issue! Everyone can say what they feel. Thats what makes the forum fun and 'masaledar'! I understand the hike to 80 seeming high from just two years backs price of Rs 60. But there r would be many factors for this rise. Rising costs being one. Also, you want the quality to improve. What exactly about the mag do you want changed or improved apart from not getting posters and DVD's often? Possibly your suggestions could help us all get more bang for our buck!


  5. Yup. I had planned to buy the bike when i heard bout its launch in mid-September. First i was told deliveries would start on Oct 1. Now Im being told the bikes will start selling on the 15th. I'm a bit unsure of my decision now. If this is their attitude before sales, god only knows what to expect once my cheque clears and they hand me my bike.

    Im seriously considering the P200 or Apache RTR Fi. Yamaha really needs to get this right if it wants to rebuild its image.


  6. Hey! I'm in a similar situation. I decided to buy the bike int eh first week of september when i heard of its launch in mid-September. Then i went to showrooms and they told me Oct1. Now I'm being told Oct 15th is when the first lot of bikes will come. Isn't this a bit fishy now? I definitely want a bike before Diwali and am now considering the Apache RTR Fi or even the P200.
