As said above, post an ad in quikr/olx, you'll get better responses.
Second hand dealer's price and dealer's exchange price will always be lesser.
Trigger is a good bike, but still has not started selling well it seems.
Trigger should give you 5kmpl+ advantage over FZ in mileage. Also the HONDA engine is slightly better refined than FZ's.
If you like the looks of Trigger, then go for Trigger.
But in most reviews, FZ is concluded as overall better bike than Trigger.
You can see some links to reviews here.
only thing open chain case, big tyres (puncture prone), less mileage, rear disc brakes and also nil upgrades since launch is against FZ. though these are not big disadvantages over trigger.
yes trigger may not be selling like unicorn, but have seen some on roads. also dazzler was a good one too.. was planning to buy that one before trigger was launched.
hope my decision taking the abpve factors is right...
I think the trigger is not up to the mark, It's switches are really scrap. The head lights are not good,and I feel the break light is too bad(think like a Chinese one.There is no engine kill switch.I have TD two times, city and highway.
I found the brake pedal is just like a metal plate
In rainy season the bike doesn't have anything to prevent the rider's shoes and legs from being splattered with mud
I think it's not an eye catcher design
and the price nearly 1Lac OTR
Honda really disappointed me.
Even though Trigger have refined engine than Fz- only one advantage.
I will recommend Fz
rear mudguard is missing and brake pedal feels somewhat flimsy. but brakes were good..
should be careful regarding mud splashing..cant help.
Honda is known for cheap switch gears so no help.. Engine kill switch is not a big thing..even in my old pulsar it was missing..
hope these are minor disadvantages ..OTR for deluxe version is 84k chennai..
I think, the things you mentioned about Trigger, better be away from it.
Yamaha has launched FZ with upgraded cosmetic changes, you should look at it. Also if it gives 5kmpl lesser average, better checkout Pulsar 200 NS with same FE but huge difference in performance.
am towards trigger for the above reasons mentioned in my earlier posts.
reg pulsar NS, again the same reasons, more weight, pillion seat, open chain case, power that i don't need.
Should you try Honda Unicorn too. Its tried and tested bike with amazing FE and Honda trust.
Trigger - Pros - HONDA, Cons - Performance:Mileage doesn't make much of a story.
FZ - Pros - Ride quality, Performance, Cons - Pillion Comfort, Mileage.
P200NS - Pros - Absolute VFM, Mileage in the league of several 150cc bikes, Cons - Pillion comfort, The burden of Bajaj reliability.
Open chain isn't too much of a problem if you take some 10 mins every fortnight to clean/pressure wash it.
Considering your requirements, the GS150R actually is the best fit. However, as long as you get atleast one ASC in your office/home vicinity, you should definitely consider it.
However, test ride all the bikes and then take the decision, cos, no matter how many suggestions you get, you would know what's best for you.
I have the same requirements as you do, except, my usage exceeds 2.5k kms a month, and had similar choices too, however, I had the ZMA twins in the list as well. Now, I've finally decided on the P200NS, which, I should be getting pretty soon, not saying that you should get the same
