  1. Had a tough time selling off my Avenger while moving to Myanmar. Planning to get a new bike here. Will keep you guys updated. Especially @PrancingHorse.
  2. Hi Hyeena, Maybe this excerpt from Wikipedia will remove any doubts that you have. Regards, Anand.

    AS 200

    Hi Ankur, I know my answer to you comes very late. But as no one had replied, I decided to put in my view on your issue. About your AS200 issue, I have observed it with many other pulsars, even the NS200. Happens due to the bolts fitted on the fibre. Easy fix would be to put a small thermocol or a sponge bit in the gap between the vibrating parts. Regards, Anand.
  4. The same humming at high speed, irritating fiber parts. And for the body of the 200NS, the rear mudflap looks inappropriate. Looks like they're trying to incorporate parts of the previous gen pulsars into this one. Also triple spark on the 150 how much more fuel are you trying to save. High time now for Bajaj to grow up.
  5. They might use the same engine, but it generally goes into a lot of R&D before they use it for another (maybe an adventure version). Consider a similar example, Bajaj has continuously used Pulsar engines on their Avenger variant, but they have reduced power output and torque has been increased.
  6. My comment on this thread may be coming a bit late, but I hope it still helps. Considering stinting, any bike with a light body and with the design made looking into the center of gravity being at the right place, which is the most important, is good. Personally, Pulsar 200 is a great bike now for stunting, also is the KTM duke. Older generation Pulsars are okay but not that effective, considering the bulky composition. But people still do manage to pull off some good stunts on them. FZs are so much underpowered that you might end up destroying the clutch plate doing it.
  7. Skinny tyres definitely have a great role in making or breaking the looks of any bike. But remember, these are the tyres with the same size that are used for the Puslars too, but the tyres on Pulsars look bulky. Ever wondered why? This totally depends on the rim styling. Take the R15 V1 for example, many people mocked it for it's skinny tyre styling, but no one ever realized that it was one of the best road-gripping and corner-friendly tyres available. For any sport-styled bike, the lesser contact of the tyres on the road means more handling capabilities of the bike, which is in turn related to rider comfortability.
  8. Hi Amol, Choosing the right bike entirely depends on your riding style. If you are a cruiser/tourer, and can shell out around 10K more, then you can go for the Avenger 220. If you are a sport-bike freak, considering a Pulsar will be good. You can also look at other options like the Yamaha FZ-Fi V2 or the Honda CB Trigger which come at around the your budget. Cheers.
  9. Yes, they have improved in that area for sure. But you need to search for the rear tube before you can get your hands on one. Other than that, everything is available.
  10. It was tough for me when the day arrived to let go of my Pulsar 180 which I owned for 3 and a half years. But the sorrow lasted only till I saw the Blue Avenger 220 at the Bajaj showroom. I too had confusions when it came to choosing the right bike which suited my riding style. 3 options hit my head. The Pulsar 200NS, KTM Duke 200 and the Avenger 220. I, being a tourer, and not much inclined towards speeding, instantly decided on the Avenger over the other 2. 10 days later, I feel that I haven't made a wrong choice. The Avenger is a bean bag on wheels, more focussed on rider comfort and a decent cruising speed too, for me to go into new unexplored areas around me. I'll give a detailed review after I ride it extensively around for about a 1000 or 2000 kms, which won't take long I guess
  11. Yamaha isn't launching the R25 in India, instead It's coming up with R3. Design-wise, the Yamaha YZF-R3 is identical to the R25 and its impossible to spot any differences between the two, especially since both the bikes share the same panels, the same diamond type frame and even the dimensions. Styling is inspired by the Yamaha’s YZF-R series bikes featuring dual headlamps, a sharp narrow tail, stubby silencer, digital-analogue console, 10 spoke alloy wheels and other elements. The motorcycle is available in two color schemes, Race Blue combination of blue and white) and Midnight Black (black with red highlights). The difference exists in terms of the power unit with the Yamaha YZF-R3 getting a 321 cc, in-line, 4 stroke, two cylinder engine producing 41.4 bhp at 10,750 rpm and a peak torque of 29.6 Nm at 9,000 rpm which is around 6 bhp more power and 8 Nm more torque than the R25. This engine is mated to a 6 speed transmission which drives the rear wheel via a chain drive. Cheers.
  12. Looks good, but I don't see any such Hero products which are at par with the Honda ones. If this one's priced right, then, maybe. But still you have to look at the after sales service, which Hero is very bad at.
  13. You can go for the new Discover 125 or the 150. The build quality is better than the previous versions. Also, with the mono-suspension as an added feature. Yamahas and Hondas have nothing to offer in that price range. If you can extend your budget to around 75-80 then you can get your hands on a Yamaha FZ.
  14. The only problem with Suzuki is availability of spares, which becomes a pain in due course. On the other hand, Suzuki's build quality is good. The same isn't a problem with Yamahas and Hondas. The new FZ-V2 Fi and the CB Trigger ABS are good options.
