    now it's simple.
    Your choices are Electra or CL 350 only.TBTS is not at all for city rides, it's mainly for Touring only with great comfort.

    CL don't have a pillion friendly seats, waiting period close to a yr and i don't think that it worth waiting?? Because you have other option like Electra. Which is more huge kind of bike compare to CL, Same engine and performance.

    Thanks for answering I am going to RE showroom today....Will see the bikes there and get a test ride hopefully and will choose a bike which wins my heart

    And I am going to ride a bullet for the first time...So before test riding anything to be taken care of.

    Also Is there anything that I should consider before I book the bike,would be able to get any discounts and the price tag is a hefty 1.28L....So any tips and things to be considered before booking??

    Only disk brakes can be fitted (price ~8K) on standard and not self start.
    Electra has few more features like gas filled shocks, metallic color and chrome .

    But if you love standard than go for it . Lesser electrical lesser trouble.

    Tank foundation points on chassis are same for both the bikes so it will not be a problem to get standard tank on electra not sure how it matches with rest of the bike.in my opinion go with electra.take a test ride of tbts also .

    All designs (Paint) on the RE are hand made, you can get the standard tank fixed on the electra and there is no issues with it as it is a straight fit, but dont do it within the free service period.

    From pictures and seeing them on road, both tanks seem identical. Hunt around for the logo. If you find it, buy the electra and install on it

    There are many vendors who provide customised tanks which would fit on a standard chasis, check out on the net
