    My motorcycle is just out of the warranty range at 35k KM's on the odo, My guess is it will be at least 50k KM's before she starts burning oil, won't be surprised its sooner as I ride hard inspite of maintaining speed limits, read undergeared by 4 teeth at rear.
    Motorcycling Experience:
    2000 ~ 2017 Y2K Kinetic Zoom (Disposed at 15k)
    2011 ~ 2015 Hero Honda Karizma R (Sold at 56.5k)
    2013 ~ 2014 Bajaj Discover 100 4G (Sold at 16.5k)
    2015 ~ 2017 TVS Wego (Totaled at 18k)
    2015 - Bajaj Pulsar 220F (Currently 31k) < Garage Queen!
    2017 - Bajaj CT100B (Currently 21k) < 'Golden Quadrilateral' Runner!

    The Ride was Good, but Life is short, spend it Wisely!

    Yes, it does avoid engine warranty. But my Bajaj ASS was courteous & knowledgeable enough to know that 300V is better than the recommended oil and supported me throughout.

    Your plan of switching oils seems fine.

    All three are great bikes, with the first two having been proven their mettle here and abroad. The new kiddo, the RTR 200 is no bad either, with sharp brakes and very good handling and an oil cooled engine. The RTR 200 is smooth compared to the 220, and the NS 200 is a very worthy contender with a couple of thousands difference only to the 220 and 200 NS.

    RTR 200: Sharp, Great Looks, and Smooth Engine.
    Pulsar 220: Battle tested, reliable engine, excellent highway mile muncher and very good ergonomics which I would rate among the best in its class.
    NS 200: Tried and tested, with liquid cooling, and a smoother engine and sporty riding position. No better than a 220, but looks are its forte.

    Bonus:

    FZ250: Great bike, fantastic torque spread, and that sound. The front brakes have a long way to improve. A clean package, sans the quality niggles here and there.
    Duke 200: I need not say a word, do I

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Thanks for sharing that info bro, I'm still mostly inclined towards P220 coz of ergonomics and fuel efficiency. Besides, it has proven it's strength for more than a decade now. And lots of people have told me that it offers the best comfort and is ideal for long miles, another plus is the projector headlamp and bigger seat. It should be easier and less costly to maintain.

    NS200 is ok, but less efficiency & less comfort.

    RTR 200, has split seat and again sporty posture.

    FZ25 seems good but it's a bit higher priced and Yamaha service costing is steep as per my friend's feedback.

    No wonder P220 still sells a lot, its old but it gets all the basics right, cheaper to maintain, easy spare availability.

    Yeah I too say that pulsar 220 is the best choice !

    Good power delivery (much linear) ,you can cruise even at 30 /35 kmph at top gear!

    Best comfort and touring ergonomics!!

    Well it's a decade old machine undoubtedly it's like a hotcake and sells at least 8K units in India monthly!!!

    That's great , do you know??? even R15 sales figure can't beat the P220 sales .

    One odd thing for me. I still miss my 220 sooo much. U said right. It's a legend. Nothing can beat it. Pillion comfort is best in p220.
    I upgraded to Dominar in july this year after riding p220 for 7 years since i was under 18. P220 is just something different. Since i was a novice rider that thing gave me hell lot of problems. But still i miss it. I love it infact.....



    It is something like when Enfield rider upgrade to Harleys but still want to ride Enfield. It's that kind of attachment for us. Who are into sports tourer. First love....

    To be honest, I had my eyes set on it a decade ago, but it was out of my budget at the time.

    I'm astonished that a decade later, I can spend beyond it but still, its the only one that ticks all the boxes. I mean, that's really something different.

    I mean, bikes these days are all about more power, big bulky look, rear monoshock, split seat with balcony seat for pillion

    A decade old bike still has power, comfort, proper seat and what not. I'm pissed that for what P220 is, there's no competition for it.
