    Fazer riders, can you give me details on mileage, power, reliability, spares availability and cost, after-sales service quality etc. ? Always useful to talk to existing owners to know any potential problems.
    looks, comfort, city riding, performance not a concern, no word about mileage.....

    I prefer a bike with sporty look. I realize RTR's performance, mileage, price are better than Fazer, but the problem with RTR is that it does not have the huge, beautiful front faring that Fazer has, I really am in love with it.
    Are there any other known/expected bike launches in 2011 with such sporty look and front fairing?

    I say HUNK or DAZZLER, HH & Honda both are awesome, the SVC s great and no problems.
    I feel like Peter Parker when I drive my Hunk in the city but I become Spiderman when I am on my CBR swinging from one lane to the other on expressways.

    My Stable:
    2009 & Present: HH Hunk Limited Edition [Red Striker]
    2011 & Present: Honda CBR 250R [Black Blade]

    Well whatever happened to the Pulsar 220 F ? Its got decent road presence, a front fairing which may NOT be as beautiful as the Fazer but it houses projector headlamps which are much better than the Fazer.
    Performance? Well ull love the performance of the 220!!
    RIDE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT!!!

    Since you dont need performance bikes-Pulsar and Apache are removed.
    Budget is 90k-r15 & Karizma ZMR removed.

    your 1st need is Appearance - FZ series and Dazzler are good option
    2nd need is comfort- fazer, HH CBZ-x & Hunk, Dazzler
    3rd need is longetivity- Hero Honda bikes are totally in.
    no concerned about mileage so no option here.

    so you can go either for Fz-16/Fazer or for HH Hunk/karizma R.

    Fazer is very good option for you.

    Go to showroom and test ride these bikes and experience yourself what riding comfort you are getting.
    Pick up a ride and rewrite yourself to a new Identity.....

    Thanks for the reply, ch.madhur...I think I'll test ride these options and then decide, right now there are too many options Fazer, Hunk, Dazzler, Karizma, Pulsar 220....

    If you are looking into Enfields then your budget will surely touch 1.20-1.30. If you have that sort of money and want to attract attention more than anything else, you have new choices for you

    R15
    Duke
    CBR150 R

    Both these bikes turn most heads. More then Enfields.
