    There's no motorcycle that has been manufactured in this planet that is maintenance free. Only batteries have become MF in the recent times. Be it Hero Honda or Hayabusa, everything DOES require maintenance.


    So what is that you need in riding position. BTW, you ride a motorcycle & DRIVE a four wheeler.


    Lol I'm riding 70 Kms everyday to office in C250R & I don't have backache either. Anyway, take the three weeks test & you should all be fine. I'm used to ride Rx100 for over 1.3 decade, when I switched to C250R, I felt totally uncomfortable, but now, I feel forward leaning posture is much safer & controllable compared to the sitting posture in case of emergencies.

    Anyway, the point to you is, define your requirements completely. One of them being riding posture. If you're really concerned on this, take help of any of your friends & ride their C250R/TB/AV220 for quite a distance & conclude for yourself.
    Well for the first point. This was the first batch of RTR Fi's which came in with some manufacturing problems. and the TVS (non)service here in Chennai is legendary.

    I agree that all three are diff categories.

    Well I guess I do need to focus on the Riding position

    Now that you are driving a CBR how do you feel? Are you satisfied???

But passion beats everything, if you love thunderbird or CBR nothing else matters it
    Well one thing is I love the revviness in the RTR and I seriously do not want to miss that but I am also attracted to the sheer pride of owning a bullet. So you see my passion is drifting

    I think thunder bird or avenger is better. in thunder bird many people telling about the oil leak problem. i think Avenger is good choice and value for money at 81,000INR on road. Nice comfort for pillion also.

    I own a thunderbird & i dont have any oil leakage problem, the newer model (after 2009) dont have any oil leaking problems. The On road price of thunderbird is 1.21lks & avenger is 88000 in Bangalore.

    As far as avenger is concerned it might have some quality issues so if you are choosing it be cautious about that...where as we all know the great quality of Honda and Royal enfield...so consider the quality aspect as well..
