    And if I go for NINJA 650, what will be the service availability, maintenance cost and spare parts availability. And any idea about the waiting period for Delhi or Dehradun.
    If you are near delhi then in my opinion servicing and part availability shouldn't be a big problem. And as far as bike is concerned both 300 and 650 are very good bikes. You cant go wrong with any of them. But if you want to tour and need a more comfortable ride choose 650. Although mileage would take a hit. Regarding maintenance cost I would suggest you to go through the ownership thread that should solve your querry. One more thing go to the showroom and talk to the showroom guys that would also give you a fair idea.

    Now coming to long term part. Kawasaki engines are bound to last long if maintained.

    Also which bike do you ride currently?

    If you wanna tour, your best bet will be N650R. CBR250R is another option. As far as Fe is concerned both N650 & CBR250 have almost same tank range. CBR with 13 ltrs tank will give an Fe of around 30. N650 with 15 ltrs tank will return around 20 kmpl.

    CBR's spares are cheaper and easily available than Ninja. But Ninja has double the power of CBR. Both are reliable enough for long term use.

    I would suggest go for Ninja.

    if your heart says ninja then close your eyes and go for ninja its a lovely bike
    the waiting period of the ninja 650 i think is 90 days (i asked at ludhiana showroom)
    as per service they provide door step service
    and you are in delhi dude you will easily find any spare parts you want

    I was exactly in the same confusion just one month back, when I was trolling through thousands of forums to decide on my ride. My confusion was between Ninja 650 or Monster and if none then HD Iron. Decision making factors :-
    After sales servicing (Ducati was straight out on this one)
    Practicality of riding a sports tourer( A aggressive bad ass machine for the city and silky smooth tourer for highways)
    And last but not the least I wanted to have fun with the bike which you can't do alone( Both HOG and KNOG are awesome groups, where you can meet like minded petrol heads who are passionate about their rides as you are.

    But between the Iron and Ninja it was a tough call, I finally went for SBK'ish looks which I always wanted for my ride.

    To be honest with price range you have nothing beats Ninja 650, practical and easy to maintain thanks to awesome service by Bajaj. I got mine just a month back, and it is a real fun to drive. When I booked I was told a booking period of 90 days, but manager gave me assurance of 3-4 weeks and guess what I got the delivery in 3rd week. My bike was second in waiting and Bagga Link gets a lot of 5 bikes every time, thats what I was told. Last I went to Karolbagh 15 days back to collect my papers, the service engineer told me that they have one in stock and one in display. So there can be a chance might get it immediately. Check with KTM CP or Bagga Link Karolbagh.

    I have already ridden her 500+ kms and I can't explain my feelings enough that I am loving each and everyday. Ninja is my ride for daily commute to office, which is like 2-3 kms but believe me I take regular detours to make my trip 8-9 kms.

    Let me know if you want to anything, I will surely try and help you.

    Thanks,
    Puneet
