    Hey, you are going nuts over this! Please try to understand, you have to let go at least one feature! Just now you said, looks are important, and faired bike will be good. But then you won't be able to zip through the traffic at all, you will have to take a lot of margin for a faired bike while in traffic (compared to 200ns and duke).

    First of all, you should estimate, how much highway riding you will be doing. Suppose your annual highway mileage is around 10% compared to that in city, then it makes more sense to buy a duke/200ns. For rare highway tours, duke and 200ns are not that bad. Ask any of the owners of 200ns, duke.

    If you end up buying a faired one, and drive/commute a lot in a packed traffic, you will get irritated a lot. I don't mean to say that faired bikes are useless in traffic, I have seen your comment above that you love to zip zap through traffic and stay in front of it! Else I don't have a problem personally, in fact I drive passively in traffic, and I am ok with it.

    So I would say, decide what you want first of all (faired or naked). And once you have decided, don't look back at the options you have left, you will feel bad about it and get confused again!

    P.S. I am not up to date with the fresh arrivals, but you should look at the 'coming soon' options also. Best of luck! And remember, all the bikes in your wishlist are unique and exceptionally good. So even if you end up buying a bike out of impulsive thinking, don't regret your decision!

    Anyhow, pillion seat and comfort is a necessity and that is the reason I can't opt for duke.
    A faired(1st preference) bike which is comfortable and fits in the budget and is new. Man am I going nuts searching for one.
    yeah brother, the pillion seat is indeed a problem.
    I cannot suggest you the R15 because of the pillion seat problem. I own one and know how good a bike it is. But then again "pillion seat is bloody useless".
    Check out the Fazer V2.0, it is semi faired, the pillion seat will be a bit more comfortable. and it is a decent bike.

    else try the new FZ 2.0 and the Gixxer.both are naked street bike and good value for money.
    Happy bike hunting brother. choose wisely.
    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.

    @carelessakki FZ 2.0 is a decent buy and looks are pretty damn good. Pillion is way better comfy than D200 or R15. Zipping through traffic with that wide handle bar should not be a problem at all.

    Used bike=Reliability issues. Most people are already facing some problem or no one sells a good bike(ignore the exceptions)

    You could also consider a used ninja300 though not sure you can find one that hasn't been abused.
    But if you can it'll be a dream to ride

    Yeah! It appears that way to me too.
    Hero is going for HX250 but no launch dates till now(or I didn't hear about any)
    @Ankey Fazer is not really my type and FZ is good but I can make do with buying an NS as well.

    Also, pulsar 200ns ownership thread in itself is like a Warning statement to guys like me that problems may arise anytime. Reliability is also an issue with NS but that can be handled because my handling is very good and I take care of my things.

    Seriously bro, either wait it out for the new releases or just get a used ninja 250/300.
    Ns is not entirely unreliable but there are some issues which I am sure have been rectified in newer models. Overall its a good budget rocket.
    But if you want more options then take my suggestion.

    How about the rc 200? Or rc390?
    Though the pillion seat literally does not exist :P you can take a test ride along with pillion on the rc and decide.
