I need your unbiased opinion. To begin with, we have two bikes at home. Both are my dad's ( He is avid fan of biking). One is Yamaha Crux and other is Yamaha Rx 100.
As you know for the local mileage run we use Yamaha crux and in case we need mad power use Rx 100.
Now it is the time for me to buy my own ride. I'm 5.8 in height and 65 kg.
- City riding 5 kms, Highway ride 30 Kms daily and ocassionaly go on a tour around 200 kms.
- I don't ride cramped up riding position, dont want to strain shoulders.
- Should be good tourer or similar with good amount of torque
- Main priority is, I would keep the bike for next 5 to 7 years. So I want a reliable machine.
As the title indicates, I am inclined towards Bajaj Pulsar 220S and Hero Honda Karizma R. I have test riden Karizma R and I liked the overall package a lot. The bike had enough power on reserve and good amount of torque. The seating position was comfortable.
However, I would like to know how would be the seating position and riding condition of Pulsar 220S with new clip on handle bar. Would the engine be reliable, I am very much keen on keeping the bike neat and servicing frequently.
Which bike will have a good pillion seating position?
I would straight away purchase Karizma R, however, new Pulsar 220S is tempting because of its advanced technology and features. I want to lay my hands on my new bike within 2 months. I'm very concerned in finalizing a stable bike, cause I wouldn't like to resell or buy a new one shortly.
I would appreciate for your opinions. Thanks in advance.
