    Default Help me choose my 1st bike

    Hello everyone. I want my 1st bike ever. I'm confused what to do. I've ridden some simple bikes but never a sports bike or something like that. I know how to ride. Covered around 1k kms on my dad's glamour.
    Age :19
    Height :6.1
    Want bike for college 1st year.
    Sporty type bike with decent mileage and great speed.
    Budget around 1 to 1.5 lakhs.
    Nice speed, good control, nice pick-up, awesome look, value for money, durable etc
    Ride mostly solo

    Hi
    I would suggest you Suzuki gixxer or Yamaha fzs v2.0 since it will be your first bike you will learn a lot of things from these two bikes and both comes under your budget. Both looks good &have good fuel efficiency . You can also opt for p200 ns. Test ride these three bikes if you feel its ok for you then decide which suits you.

    Ride safe

    Do you have any bike for choice??

    If you dont mind go for Zma R model its all worth you pay for( if you can find one)...Considering your height that will suit you best.

    Or wait for P200 ss...

    One question though,

    Whats your definition of Nice speed and Great speed

    My choice will be R15 v2.0 (not sure if 3.0 is going to come or not). But its a VFM bike in the sub 150 cc category bikes, definitely a better looking faired bike. Good pick up, nice handling. But you will have to get used to its riding stance as its extremely sporty and you will endure some pain due to the position.

    But its a good bike to drive around city and on highways too...you can hit speed of 120+ kmph, which is more than enough IMO.

    Plz be careful with speed. I will not recomment 200ns until you get used to sports bikes and weights.
    Test Drive CBR150r and R15 V2. both are good bikes in their manners and will not cost you a hole in your pocket money.
    Happy Riding
