    Default R15/Apache 180?

    Hey guys , I'm new here . I'm planning on buying a bike by the end of September and I need some advice . As of now I'm inclined towards the New R15 but waiting for its official release .
    I'll be riding about 20-25kms a day(To and fro for college) . I don't mind a sporty riding posture I've ridden a friend's r15 and loved it .
    I'm not very particular about the mileage but I need atleast 30kmpl .
    Also I'll be keeping this bike for atleast 4 years so I need something that'll remain consistent for the time period . Something that wont trouble me for a long time.
    Vibrations is a big NO . Also Im not a very experienced rider , I ride my friend's bikes once in a while (I'm not bad either )
    So should I go for the New R15 or Old R15 or Apache 180ABS or soemthing else?
    Budget is around <1.25l


    Thanks in advance!

    Test ride an well maintained rtr abs, try concentrating on the vibes... use a helmet... if you are irritated... dont consider it, test ride new r15 also... if you are planning to have a pillion rider regularly, r15 is out of question :P ... or else it is a very good option, i'm also hearing about next gen pulsars and new apaches... look out for them, if they come in september,i have a feeling ktm200 is gonna come this month... you can consider them also...
    Apache 180

    Considering the statement in bolds, the RTR is a big NO for you.

    Also, 99% of your post talks about R15 and only 1 % about RTR.

    You have already made your mind, go with the R15 V 2.0!
    If you ride like there's no tomorrow...worry not there won't be!

    The R15 is the best handling machine in your options. no vibes, feels safe at any speeds. the cons of r15: bad to ride with pillion, especially if the pillion is heavier that you. less initial torque making it uncomfortable for heavy traffic.
