    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    p220 to CBR250 -> bad choice. there is not much gain in power over p220 and you will miss few things like flickability of p220 compared to 250, headlights, handling, offroading capability,
    p220 to R15 -> good only if you want a better handling machine but soon, you will miss the torque and power of p220 as 95% of the time you will be riding in city where cornering does not matter much.

    Test ride both the bikes back to back and select the one which satisfies you. take it for a long ride, real long ride to understand the bike

    Depends on where you ride majority. If city then no point in upgrading.. P220 is perfect for that. If its highway and your desperately looking at a new bike then go for cbr.. Else 220 is good...

    But why not see the brighter side guy's??

    P220 to CBR- Honda's patented quarter litre bike of international presence, liquid cooled engine can keep her throttle wide open all day long, superior handling characteristics, superb sports touring capabilities and an optional ABS and not to forget the fuel injection though.

    P220 to R15 2.0 - superb refined 150cc engine that is one of it's kind in India, absolutely delightful revv happy engine, lightened alu swingarm, international R series inspired styling as well as knee scrapers delight perimeter frame and ultra sharp braking.

    @ the thread starter, it's time to decide rather to be a kid on the block. Happy miles:thumbup:
    Is all the above available in the P220?

    @ all worried about not a worthy upgrade.. It's not always about the power one should really be worried about, there are other things too.. Ever wondered why's that R15's are topping the timing chart in track days when all the competetiors struggle to even tail gate it??

    Exactly, what is it in the P220 that you do not like? Obviously, that is the drawback which you want to address in your next purchase.

    we are certainly not talking about track days,the ts lives in a city i guess,where only crawling is permitted not scrapping knees.

    yeah we do have timing chart for signal to signal drag
    ,where sometimes splendor has the upper hand and r15 tail-gates.

    @ts,i tell you the brighter side of sticking to 220=you are saving money big time without losing out on fun barring the 'getting-down-on-you-knees-delight',but then city corners are humble enough.

    and the question remains why do i race?

    Go for CBR 250R ... it's much more faster in Acceleration & top Speed then both R15 &220...
