    RX 135 it is. No second thoughts about it. This bike matches all your requirements. Light weight, amazing pick up and with the torque it generates, u can be assured of getting a good top speed as well. But be careful in your search. Spend some time looking for a good RX. It will be well worth the wait.

    I was offered a 1.5 year old bajaj xcd 125 for rs. 35000... Is that a good deal?
    I would recommend you a new bike. If you can extend your budget a little, you can get a 125 cc bike, else you can get a new bike in that cost.

    i agree with that too....new bike means least expenditure on maintenance....

    you can easily get a 2 year old 150 CC machines(eg Unicorn/apache etc.).. If you have any friends in IT sector then try to get from them... usually they are in good condition ..people leaving abroad sell them at good prices. I wouldn't prefer old Pulser (infact any BAJAJ machine which is more then 2 year old, unless its really cheap).. try to find a maintained UNICORN, even if it has done 20k kilometers, engine will be still smooth and good power.

    i agree to that....actually all the bajaj engines start producing sound after 2-3 years...so purchasing a second hand bajaj is not a good idea...

    Yep, I agree there. Pulsar's aren't two good after a couple of years.

    But I'd really like to go for a lightweight bike...

    I think the Apache bikes are quite light. Is that correct?
    How good would a second hand Apache bike cost me... say 2 yr old Apache. And how is it's maintenance after a couple of years+

    Meanwhile I'm still hunting for a good RX135.

    RXZ is 135cc as well isn't it? What the difference b/w RXZ and RX135?

    ^^ The bike will be absolutely fine for you. Just test ride and see whether the riding posture is comfortable for you or not. I don't know about the credit card thing, probably someone with more gyan can help you on this.
