    Your are completely wrong here. P220 and P200NS are completely far apart and P200NS is miles ahead of P220 (apart from fairing, top-speed and projector lamps).
    P200NS was created as a joint project by Bajaj & KTM to develop a common base of 200cc engine. So P200NS shares its common base with the Duke 200.
    The bike engine is much more refined compared to P220. The review whatever I have read from the auto-experts are very good about the engine, looks features so its very unlikely that the bike would not last for several years.
    The sound of the bike is awesome (from the videos I have seen).
    You get a fresh model.
    It does not look like a normal pulsar and you will have your "look apart" factor intact. It is the best looking naked sports bike in our country today with brutal acceleration claims. You should get around 35kmpl in the city as estimated.
    You also get monoshocks, Bybre discs, nice digital speedo and lots of goodies.
    Please checkout this video before going ahead to any other bike. This bike is sheer value for money. It looks underpriced even at 1lakhs

    Pulsar 200NS
    Whats there in a signature?

    The ZMR is an improved ZMA with a lot of technology.

    The ZMA (aka Karizma R) is still very much alive in the market, comes to around 85k on road and is a proven tourer. And that pic is of the ZMA.

    Why don't you consider Royal Enfield 350 Std it will suit your budget and very good for weekend trips very comfortable seating position and good pillon seat.
    Even you cross 110+ the bike wont vibrate very reliable and proven machine.
    FE above 30KMPL and a 350 classic look.

    If you need a good reliable machine for weekend trips as well for city commuting RE will suit you the best. When you are concerned more on the looks you can extend your budget and go for RE Classic 350
    Yamaha RX100 (1993)
    Yamaha RX135 (2000)
    Bajaj Pulsar 150 (2004)
    Yamaha FZ-25 (2017)
    TVS N-Torq (2018)

    Since I am not getting reviews about any other bike which I have mentioned, my list has been reduced to -
    1-CBR 150r
    2-P200NS
    3-Karizma R
    4-RE Classic 350 (major cons with this bike??? )
    5-Avenger 220 (I seriously want some inputs about this bike from you people, its like nobody wants to talk about this bike or something)
    The world stands apart for a man who knows where he is going.

    going through some reviews i am sure it is a good bike indeed and overpriced by a margin of 5-6k rs.

    and if its really diff than ZMR, Is it available in market?? (price?,specs?, comfort level w.r.t to zmr??)
    zmr is same old zma with more plastics and a injection of fi.
    zma is now being retailed at 84-85k rs i guess.

    avenger is good,city handling is not that great,but it is good at what it is meant to do.
    and the question remains why do i race?
    every finishing line is the begining of a new race.

    #i have learnt to manipulate my own adrenaline and the perception of biking is different.
    #overkill is underrated.
    #how random roads may appear there is always a destination.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
    #i don't subscribe to co-incidence,either it is the rider or the other moron on the road

    (:)people keeps on saying add spark to life, bajaj got hold of that idea and added an extra spark to bike.
