  • Help me find my next bike

    Hi guys,

    I have been struggling to find a good bike that's fulfilling my requirements. Had Honda Unicorn 150 since 2011 and would like a better upgrade

    Purpose:
    50% commute 50% tour
    ​​​​​
    Criteria:
    Comfortable for 6 feet rider and pillion in long ride
    Mileage ~50+
    Naked muscular look
    Long term reliability and durability

    Currently in mind:
    XBlade
    Apache 160 4v
    Fzs
    Meteor
    Sp125

    Thanks

      Mate don't buy a full suspension monstrosity just for riding on some cobblestones. I get that the roads are atrocious and I wouldn't recommend a road bike or anything but a MTB with large volume tires and front suspension is actually the ideal bike for that type of environment. If your ass hurts, get a Brooks Flyer S type saddle, it's absurd how much of a pounding they just absorb. You could even run it with a suspension seatpost if Kodi nox you absolutely must.

        In India, we mostly refer to motorcycles as bikes, not bicycles :hehe
        While I agree even the most hybrid hardtails are good for our roads and MTB only if you take it to hills and trails.
