    Default Used bikes in bangalore

    Hi,
    Can anybody tell me where would I find a decent used bike in Bangalore. What are the best places to search.
    I know the best advice will be to go for a new one , but I relocate frequently and dont want to loose too much money by selling a new bike.

    I am looking for something in the 150cc family (except Pulsar -- no offense meant but I have had a bad exp with it before) OR cruiser (preferably enticer -- please advise on this one too).

    Are there any forums that I can look at (I tried sulekha and google etc) or any trusted dealers by members here.

    Any pointers will be really helpful.

    Thanks,
    Beo

    You can check out dealers near majestic and other areas... The condition of the bike will always be uncertain.

    P.S: I have a Pulsar 150 ES and Discover 125 ES for sale.. ping me if you are interested. Reason for sale, bro heading to saudi, 2 bikes and 1 aadmi!!!

    Its best to avoid dealers man, they are daylight con-men. Contacts will work better.
    Let me know what bike u need, I could help u with something. Since u dont want pulsars, ur options are used CBZs, Uni, Fiero, Apache, RTR, xtreme etc.

    Thanks for the quick replies guys...
    @mac187, thanks for letting me know, but I am kinda skeptical abt Pulsars and bikes from Bajaj stable due to some past experiences. Again, I am no bike guru (more of a newbie) but this is simply a personal choice...

    @joel...thanks for the advice dude...
    I'm a bit short-5'4" (and not so heavy) and am comfortable with Apaches and cruiser types...I loved the Xtreme and Unicorn when I rode them, they handle very well but these were a tad tall for me. I guess its always good to be sensible rather than put your and the pillion's life at stake. Some ppl told me to get the seat modified and lower it by a couple of inches...but I dunno


    Thanks,
    Beo

    oops...left the details out, thanks haxor

    I will use it mostly for commuting to work (8km-one way) and for some drives on the weekends (approx 100km or less), more at a relaxed pace (under 70 cruise).

    my budget will depend on the bike condition and year, I dont mind shelling out for a well kept vehicle which wont give me headaches...(I guess all guys on this forum will have spoilt their darlings with a lot of TLC )
    But, the newer the bike the better...If we are talking about a upper limit on the dough, ummm maybe about 35-40k (again, strictly on the condition of the bike though). Lower the better, c'mon who doesnt like a good deal

    U can get an apache 150 for around 30k odd. Pretty good ones.
    Avoid Enticers man, they are hopeless and parts are a concern too. Get a Fiero, which is pretty cheap and ultra reliable. Would not cost u more than 25k for a mint one. Would more suit ur 5,4" figure.

    Thanks, thanks and thanks for the quick replies and suggestions.

    I did look at a pretty good Apache150 (basic without disc and SS) but we didnt agree on the price . I've heard scary stories about vibrations on the bike (the classic apache) and the quality of the gear, is that true?
    The opinions on the Enticer have been a mixed bag so I dunno what to do But there arent many of those around (atleast not in good condition). I havent come across any Hunk's but that bike looks pretty heavy.

    Will keep looking...all help from you guys and suggestions abt other trusted places I can look at is really appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Beo
