    I ride both the old and the new zmrs almost daily. It's my neighbour's. I just love the posture and the uniform smooth acceleration. Its worth every upgrade over the old one. But not as refined as the old one. Maybe cause of the increased power.

    Since a lot of people have already given you insights on choices, I shall come to your point. The Gixxer looks like a good product. Well most Suzuki products are. And based on the ownership review, I see that it can cruise at 85-90kmph. But it boils down to your style of riding. The Gixxer is actually a sporty commuter targeted at the youth, which is precisely you. But we need to factor in the touring aspect in your case. If you are not a speed junkie and 90kmph is good enough for you, then the Gixxer makes sense. But remember that the other bikes that were suggested here are in a different league of power, torque, acceleration etc. Also if you are riding in a group with higher displacement bikes like the NS or Karizma, you will have a hard time catching up. If touring at high speeds is one of your top requirements, then I would not suggest the Gixxer. Also higher displacement bikes will be more relaxed at higher speeds which translates to a relaxed rider.

    My budget - 80,000 - 1,50,000.
    Age 24 Weight 64kg
    Intended Usage - Office commute sometimes , Highway runs and Long rides
    Fuel Effeciency requirement - Respectable Fuel Efficiency
    Approximate Monthly running - More then 300 kms on average plus the tours and long rides !
    City - Mumbai

    My requirements are in the following order

    1 Comfortable to ride for a tall guy and good sitting position
    2 Power when I need it
    3 Refined engine
    4 Good braking

    Bike that I own - RX100(28 years old and still running)I really cant ride it everyday on take it for long tours. Now I am looking to buy a bike that suits my power needs and comfort. I have used my friends Karizma - R for 2 years and I really loved riding it everyday every time.

    My questions

    1) I wished to continue with Karizma and wanted to buy a classic like Karizma R but now the old version is no longer available and I am not sure if the new version really that good!
    2) KTM duke seems like a mix of both power and comfort but I doubt if it would be comfortable for a tall guy like me.
    3) Karizma ZMR, Cbr 150 and 200Ns are also under my radar. I had the opportunity to ride zmr and cbr 150 and I liked both.
    4) I love all Yamaha bikes specially street fighters but yamaha fz is a little short for me and maybe I wont be that comfortable riding in traffic.

    I dont want a cruiser so Royal Enfield's are out of option. Also, I don't prefer bikes with aggressive frame! Yamaha R15 would be a no for the same reason.

    PS- I think need a mix of Karizma and Rx

    Your suggestions will be really appreciated.
    Hi,

    I want to suggest you gixxer but I doubt its touring capability. Why don't you try pulsar 200 ns and suzuki gs150r which is the previous model to gixxer. Else buy any of the new karizma, the seating might look sporty but really comfortable compared to other bikes

    All of them are good choices. Test ride them thoroughly and decide. All the best!

    Fazer
    Pros: Nice riding posture, Excellent looks, Good FE (Fuel Injected Version), Good low end torque, Nice build quality.
    Cons: May not suit your height, Poor Yamaha service, Severely underpowered for high speed cruising, Fairing adds weight to the front wheel, Expensive for an air cooled 150cc.

    Karizma(2014)
    Pros: Nice riding posture (sporty though), Excellent low end and midrange, triple digit cruising ability, Instant throttle response, Decent build quality, Awesome FE (only ZMR), Capable service centres all around.
    Cons: Looks (Subjective), Refinement lost compared to previous versions (Not bad though), long term problems are unknown since it is new, No engine kill switch yet!

    200NS
    Pros: Nice upright posture, Linear power delivery, triple digit cruising ability, good looks (subjective), service is generally OK, decent FE, Truly VFM.
    Cons: Suffers from minor quality issues, mild vibrations at certain rpms, I think they come with TVS tyres.

    My vote goes for NS. However please read through the ownership threads of all three bikes before deciding. Also take a test ride. Take your time, be patient and match your requirements with the bike.

    Go for NS...

    I was in the same dilemma...
    I narrowed down to RTR 180 vs Pulsar 200NS...

    RTR comes with ABS...
    But it is old engine with no recent upgrades...

    I bought NS 2weeks ago. I'm 5'11 too 80kgs. I'd say good I opted out of RTR. More than glad with NS...
