I have a zma (2004) and a r15 (2009) already.
1. I am in the need for a bike that has superior ride quality, ergonomics (only for commuting in Delhi traffic, I do over a 120 kms daily) and it should be a light bike both in terms of feel and on the wallet. (It is mighty painful to make my r15 go through that everyday.)
2. Performance is also required, but not too important. I do not want one of those 99.99999cc sissies.
3. Fuel economy and style quotient come in next, I get about 45-50 kmpl from my r15 in traffic. The bike should should look half decent - I'm not expecting a Triumph Daytona 675 in terms of looks.
4. Reliability should have been first :P - I would prefer a jap bike to a Hindustani one when it comes to this, they might not full fill my other needs though, the japs that is. It should be virtually 'maintenance free', i do not want to be running around in fear of my chain running dry or coolant level being too low or that weired noise that comes from the right side. I just DO NOT want that (have my r15 to worry about). I want to get to my destination in comfort and speed without bothering too much about potholes or the reasons stated above. With the mileage I put in a month 4xxx+ kms, the bike should last me for at least some time to come.
I do not intend to sell the bike, I never do.
Please advise urgently
