    Please select any bike from the above list of choices and also let us know why would you buy that bike.

    My vote goes for the Pulsar 200NS, though it was a pretty tough competition between the Duke 200 and the Pulsar 200 NS, almost 50:50. Yet a saving of around 30K with almost similar power output and my previous experience of owning a Pulsar tilted it in the favor of 200NS.

    Price is a small consideration for this choice:
    Please provide the other requirements:
    a. The guy's Physique.
    b. Usage scenario: for office commuting, long rides, lone rider or have pillion in most times
    c. New rider or experienced already.

    These [and more] factors should decide what motorcycle to buy rather than price.
    I bought a RTR 180 ABS since I am a lone rider, use it for office and weekend long trips. I was a new rider, so selected with ABS motorcycle and rather on the lighter side of the scale so chose RTR[138 KGs].

    I would think twice before putting my money on the KTM Duke. International styling and quality at our doorsteps, more over my reason of picking it over the Pulsar 200NS would be the extra BHP, Radical Console, USD, FI and fat tyres

    since the bracket is till 1.3 only..within that range I would have stuck with a Street bike more than a sports
    Just because you haven't seen it doesnt mean its impossible...expect the unexpected.

    My vote goes for ZMA-R. Being an old horse, its still in the race without any upgradation. The bulletproof engine speaks of it. The torqey engine is easy in city traffic as it is smooth on a highway. The new players(Duke, NS, CBR150, R15 V2 etc.) are god machines but yet to prove their durabilty.

    The R15 V2.0 gets my vote here. Because of its performance, great handling, good riding feel and overall build quality.

    YZF-R15. the amount of ride confidence this bike gives is phenomenal.

    I think there is significant difference in naked, semi faired and faired bikes dynamics and ride quality, which definitely can't not be judged/segmented just by price margins. for me the poll is vague and wouldn't give the realistic output intended.
