    Question Pulsar 220 F or Karizma-R (1st Bike)

    Hello guys, m newly joined here. I m gonna get a bike for me next week, m a newbie in bike riding. I decided to get the pulsar 220 but my friends r saying i wont be able to handle the power so they r saying to get a karizma-r. Also i need a good mileage bike as i will be travelling around 50-100km daily. M confused between these 2 bikes. Please let me know whats best for me.

    Topic Approved.

    Pure crap, I say! If you are mentally stable and have a controlled right hand, you can ride ANY bike, least of which the Pulsar 220. If you love the P220, then, I suggest just go ahead and buy yourself one.

    If u r mind is like that go for zma-r,there are so many xbhpians using P220(both DTS-I and FI) for more than 3 years witout a major problem.yes the bajaj bikes needs little more care.Btw i own a P220 dtsi (6 months old).the only problem i faced till date is the replacement of a airfilter sensor U/W.

    i own a zma. it's a gr8 bike. but would I buy one now ? no.
    p220 has more power, more features, cheaper spares...but most importantly the spares are easily available. It gives better average too.

    zma has , arguably, better chassis than p220, but it won't run if you can't replace the faulty clutch cable.

    Logical choice : P220 F/S

    This one of the most highly discussed topic in the what bike section.

    I would suggest to follow these threads

    New ZMA or P220 DTS-i?
    or
    Karizma R or New Pulsar 220S


    @mods:- I think this thread can be merged with the above thread.

    i wonder why your friends did'nt suggested any other bike.....P220 is a good bike but becomes handful in Traffic..this is the same case with ZMA...you also want good millage...why don't you consider Apache 180....this bike gives better average and great performance..

    as i own a p220 i can say

    performance,vfm,sense,running costs,features(55w projector),easy to handle every where(traffic,high speed,pot holes,off road) - p220

    deep pockets (spares),high running costs,costly,huge faring,more refined than p220,v.g posing bike - zmr
    i may not know the handling virtues of the zmr,but it will sure be tough in tight spaces and off road

    milage will be almost the same for both - arnd 35 in city

    if milage is a main concern - p180,rtr 180...

    and since ur new to biking and if have a doubt,do not underestimate 21ps of power in the p220... if u do deciede to go for the p220,be gentle for atleast 2weeks and get to know it on empty trafficless streets first and also get used to braking... handling it will be a breeze and it is not at all heavy on it foot and the seating position is very confidance inspiring...
    u won't go wrong with the p220 and if u maintain it properly it will last a life time.. and yes, u will have to replace some minor parts time to time,but since they cost nothig ,no big deal...ex- i had the bike for arnd 8 months and did arnd 9k kms on it and had to get some roolers changed in the one way clutch which costed 50rs...

    if u need a smaller segment bike i would recommend the dezzler if the look is okay for u as i have used the unicorn for arnd 5 years and that dazzler has every thing that i wanted for my uni... u will ger better milage as well...
