Good read... Good advice for all rookies
Great article, very useful for newbies.
I have always been driving car's and have an interest in riding bikes all of a sudden. However choosing the right bike is not as easy as it seems with no dearth of segments in India. Currently practicing on my friend's Pulsar 150 and hopefully will soon ride my Father-in-law's Unicorn 160. Once I feel I'm confident to ride bikes I will go out and purchase one with all the necessary riding gears.
Thanks for sharing your valuable knowledge
I will be buying a bike for myself this year!This will be my very first bike.
I've chosen Duke 200,CBR 150R and 200 NS . But my parents said no because to them the tires of the bike I mentioned looks like truck's tire ! How do i convince them
I have a soft corner for Duke 200, coincidentally this one has the fattest tire
I don't have have any budget barrier but as this will be my first bike therefore I've marked it to 1.5L
By the way KTM site says D200 comes with "Bosch 9MB two-channel ABS" . Kindly recheck it for me
And you are lucky enough that you are able to change something you didnt like. Imagine people getting there first bike after a lot of struggle and have to stick to it with frustration.
While getting a bike, take numerous test ride. If any showroom denies a TR, drop the bike straight away.
I for one, use to take atleast 2 kms ride before finalising something. My experience says,Yamaha showrooms have the best Customer satisfaction level. I have tried in 4 different showrooms and was never disappointed.
It Roars and leads- RTR180 ........ It Conquers but Calm - CBR250
I have been a victim of the "fat Tyre" voodoo too
Better Grip should work for you too since it worked with my parents when they were objecting the purchase of Yamaha Fazer
i rode each bike for some 4-6 kms..you have to ride for atleast 3-4 kms..then only you will get to know the bike...
Hello everyone, This is my first xbhp post and I am planning to buy my first motorcycle. I currently own a Honda Aviator. I am confused between Suzuki Gixxer and Yamaha FZ V2. I am more inclined towards the Gixxer due to its cheaper cost and more power. I also have seen reviews and they all say the Gixxer is better. I aslo went to the dealer and price around my budget. I want to know is the Gixxer better than the new Fz and should I buy it.
