    CBR 150 and R15 belongs to a different segment as compared to Pulsar 200/220 and Apache 180. Both the pulsars are value for money and both the machines from the Japs are more oriented towards quality and performance. More ccs and more bhps does not always guarantee better performance and a better upgrade. More so when you want to keep your top speed within 90 kmph. Amongst these two my vote would go for R15 for the quality and performance. Honestly, I didn't like the quality of the switch gears of CBR 150. You mentioned that you don't line the ZMA - but it's a really good bike IMO.

    If you dont like dukes and zmr or zma then get the r15. It may not be the most comfortable bike but way lot better than cbr 150r. Lack of engine kill switch, pass switch is not acceptable in any way. So get the r15.

    Kill switch, you can live without, pass switch in India is essential!

    Bread is known to be extremely addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water, actually begged for bread after just two days !
    Bread has been proven to kill. Scientists have now uncovered alarming evidence that 100% of the people who eat bread will eventually die !

    what's all this hooey about the CBR150R not having a kill switch being "unacceptable"!?!

    rubbish. it's not a deal breaker at all.

    test ride the CBR 150R and you'll know if it's the right fit for you.

    size. weight. acceleration. power. riding position.

    those are things that no one can tell how the bike will suit you.

    i'm not going to confuse you with even more options from other manufacturers...

    you've obviously asked about the CBR150R because it's YOUR top contender within your budget and personal choice.

    it's a really good bike with a smooth engine and gearbox.

    honda does not make junk. it will be reliable and when kept within it's power-band, it's a fun ride.

    one thing you need to consider is availability of spares near where you live.

    I would suggest you to wait for the pulsar 200SS. It surely will have better technology than CBR for the same pricing. Besides since you own a Pulsar you know you can trust the quality and ruggedness in their bikes. The spare parts in the CBR are very expensive and in case of an unfortunate fall the faring will be way to much expensive so the best is to wit for the 200SS.

    you can also take a look at soon to be launched KTM RC200 which looks like a promising contender as per Indian riding conditions

    What?? No bro it aint true. Bajaj has just now started marketing dual tone pulsars with NS as their premium product.

    This is the problem with these idiotic showroom guys if they haven't got the product in there showroom they say that the product is stopped, no way 200ns is coming, recently me and my friend visited a Tvs showroom to inquire about Star City Plus and the sales girl told us that Tvs hasn't got any product of this name and when i said that there is and she is unaware of it, her attitude suddenly got rude.

    How old is it? Have you ridden it? If it is still in good shape then sure you can buy. And only one bike upto 200 cc can compete with NS which is Duke.
