    Default Bike within 85k for daily commute

    I would be buying a new bike within a month or two. Please help me make a good decision. I have been driving hero hondo glamour since 2 years now. I am a college student.
    My age is 20, 5'8 height 85kg weight and muscular physique. My budget is around 85k. I live in chandigarh and my daily drive is about 25km. I need a bike which looks stunning. Power and Speed are not my concern.Mileage is not a priority but it would be great if i can get around 40kmpl from my bike. I have shortlisted two bikes i.e Yamaha FZS-FI and Bajaj Pulsar 180. I have a soft corner for FZS but i am not sure about its mileage. Some people say you can expect around 35kmpl but some say 45kmpl. Please can any also clear this doubt regarding mileage of FZS. Any help would be really great.

    Regards
    Mohit Goyal

    For FZ 2.0, you're sure to get more than 35 kmpl! You can expect around 45-47 kmpl. And as you said power is not your main concern, it's a perfect choice. Also, looks are new.

    I agree with Krishna sir, FZ 2.0 have fresh new looks, the smoothness, reliability and technology of Yamaha.
    whereas Pulsar 180 design is more than a decade old, and every second bike on road is a pulsar, so there is no feeling of uniqueness(just my opinion).
    but the price of FZ 2.0 will be 90k, so you will need to stretch your budget a bit. The Fz is bang for the buck with fuel injection system rather than traditional carb engines, and will give you better mileage.
    But the end decision should be made only after test driving both the bikes and choosing which suits you better.
    All the best.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    Hmmm, as far as i have read, fzs-v2 should cost 82-83k. Anyways, what would you say between fzs v2 and pulsar 220? as if you right then these would come in strong competition.

    Well Pulsar 220 is considered the cheap and cheerful bike. Because you get 21 Horses for just 85k. As you are not too worried about mileage, Yes it is a good option as well. check out karizma as well if you want to go for 220 cc. But I would suggest you to make up a firm mind and then choose what suits you best. going from 150 cc FZ to 180 CC pulsar to 220 CC pulsar will confuse you more and more. So decide what category would suit your needs.
    As far as prices are concerned, they differ a lot from state to state depending on the taxes in the state and the transportation expenses involved, FZ 2.0 is about 90 k in my hometown and It could be less in Chandigarh. Take test rides and then decide. All the best.

    Yamaha's Fzs V-2 will cost you close to 90000/-rs.

    Would you also ride out? As in go long distance riding or day trips or weekend runs? on your bike.

    Looks and to stun - I really like the Yamaha FZs and the Fazer and not too many things beat Yamaha quality and reliability. Good fuel efficiency on the V2 as well... Might just be the perfect one for you.

    Pulsar's design language has become too common and old now, may not please you in terms of turning heads or any such attention needs you may have.

    Karizma is a sure shot good option if you consider the 220cc bracket, a good balance of power, wind protection, top mileage, ease of riding and style. Riders who ride Karizma let me tell you often go places.

    Anyway, like @Ankey mentioned... test and feel the machines you like, there is a lot a motorbike can communicate to you, that we cant.

    Cheers and enjoy the next couple of months making the choice.

    All the best.

    Icon2 Re: Bike within 85k for daily commute

    Pulsar 220:
    Styling: Old common Styling.
    Engine: Very Powerful and fairly smooth engine.
    Mileage: Ride it sane and it will give you 40-43 kmpl.
    A.S.S: Atleast in my place A.S.S is good. Bajaj's service centers are wide-spread throughout India
    Reliability: Somewhat Reliable!

    Karizma R (ZMR Doesn't fit your bill):
    Styling: Refreshed look but people doesn't like this look. But I like it very much esp. at its rear. They have excellently copied from EBR 1190
    Engine: Very powerful engine and extremely smooth and reliable! Engine got an upgrade and Low and mid-range is very excellent. Bike pulls clean!
    Mileage: Ride it sane and 42-45 kmpl
    A.S.S: Very Very Good A.S.S in Chennai! Hero is also wide-spread!
    Reliability: Extremely Reliable! It will never let you down! Maybe some niggles will be present like fairing rattling that too when you ride the bike on a road full of bumps! This issue is also present on Pulsar 220.

    Yamaha FZ-S Fi: Already mentioned by other members!

    If Power and Speed is not your concern why don't you have a look at 125cc bikes? See Hero Ignitor! Reliable Honda engine with Hero's 5 year warrantly and it looks edgy!(though it looks the same as stunner at rear but it has revamped Instrument cluster). Have a look at Pulsar 135 LS too! they are light and styling is different from its elder brothers.

    Spend the remaining money(if it remains) on good safety gears! Its not about "stunning" looks. Its about your "LIFE"

    My 2 Cents:
    Maintain any bike well and it would serve you for years! You can't say any bike that it is not reliable.
