    Besides, the plastic panels/fairing would eventually rattle on any bike, its just a matter of time.
    So there's no irritating vibes on handlebar and footpegs @ 90 to 100 kmph ?

    I have a 2015 BS3 model and it is not as vibey as wrongly presumed.
    Nothing that'll give you tingly feeling for sure if you wear good protective gears.
    Did Hyd-Pune on my 220 and it never felt vibey to stop or go super slow.

    Japs have been making motorcycles since half a century or more so innovation and refinement will be higher.
    It is a myth that Indian motorcycles die young. All it needs is proper care and maintenance.
    It is dirt cheap to maintain a 200+ cc bike if 220 is to be considered.

    During my college runs on the P220 I'd be doing constant speeds between 120~128 kmph on the speedo based on road incline/decline and wind resistance.

    The total distance to cover was always between 750~800 km's and the motorcycle didn't express one hint of vibrations, but once I got bored and decided to stretch my fingers a bit and while doing so my forefinger touched the switch-set and felt a shock of sorts.

    Was funny when I figured out that it was not a shock rather it was the vibrations at play, due to gripping the motorcycle with my thighs my hands were not holding on too tight which resulted in me being oblivious to the vibrations and only when I firmly touched the motorcycle did I get to experience the vibes.

    So in short I guess an individuals perceptiveness to vibrations depends on their receptiveness for the same, and as for vibrations, they're part of owning a single cylinder machine, even more when the scissor gear starts going out of whack as in my current case.

    Take a test ride of Hero Extreme 200r (if you're fine with low top speed), Tvs RTR 200 4v and Pulsar NS200.

    200cc bikes in India
    1. P220(more refined BS4 model has good reviews from our beloved Admin brothers)
    2. P200 NS
    3. RS200(this has FI so tiny bit more refined than NS).
    4. Xtreme 200R
    5. Apache RTR 200 4V

    Wild card entry - FZ25

    I'll suggest you take a test ride of them all and see what suits you. Not just vibes, check the ergonomics too because the bike may not vibrate like crazy but ergonomically it might be crap.
