    @Somen:Yeah It will reach that price...Also its going to be a flagship bike.Since he said he can stretch his budget to CBR...I thought TB 500 would be a good buy,also any RE would last for 25 yrs if maintained well....So I guess its worth..

    Thank you everyone for your comments... They were invaluable in making me reach my decision - Karizma ZMR.
    Sorry I disappeared for a while there, but I finally decided on a Karizma ZMR and I've been happy with my choice. I did try most of the bikes, and while it was a tough call to make, one factor really made the decision easy - Looks.

    Haven't gotten a chance to take longer rides, but have done a few day trips. M hoping to join upcoming rides with xbhp. Thanks again, hope to ride with the folks from Bangalore!

    For a tourer bike around 1.5 lakh, the best option is always the CBR 250.
    But since you are not interested in it,and you have already eliminated some bikes, the other options would definitely be the Pulsar 220 F or the Karizma ZMR.

    As far as pulsar is concerned it has everything that you need ie fairings, power style and performance.
    But on the other hand the Pulsar lacks reliability. So if you are looking for a short term relationship budget bike, the pulsar 220 is the best option for you in terms of your requirements.

    Now coming to the Karizma ZMR, well I would have always voted for the earlier Karizma R, but certainly not the ZMR. Solely because of performance. It seems to be an under performing bike even though fitted in with all the technology that you would like to have. But since you have mentioned that you don't want a power house, ZMR can prove to be worthy for you. The ride comfort is also good as far as the ZMR is concerned.

    So certainly in my opinion your first choice should be Karizma Zmr and the second choice should be Pulsar 220 F ( Well if you want a full fairing , you could get your Pulsar 220 F modified too)..

    For a complete specification comparison between the Karizma ZMR and Pulsar 220F, :Bajaj Pulsar 220 F Vs Hero MotoCorp Karizma ZMR - PlannTo
