    Hi,

    since AS200 was 3 months away, had decided on avenger.
    thanks to @lnagr here http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/motorcyc...ml#post1144265 was going to get it at price listed on website. called bajaj CC yesterday and he said the dealer has to sell at price listed on website and that i should call CC and they would talk to the dealer and fix it.

    went to bajaj showroom today with 60k in pocket, mind almost ready to bring home an avenger. ex-showroom price quoted by dealer was Rs 2,000/- more than that given on bajaj auto website. asked the salesman and he confidently said "its because of 14% VAT that is added to ex-showroom price!"
    I gave him calculation of 14% on 82k ~11,500/-. he retreated and said " that is what i know. talk to the manager."


    the manager said its for accessories - leg guard, saree guard, mirrors and backrest. Aren't these things included in the ex showroom price??

    called the bajaj helpline and it gave a message " we are available from monday to saturday"

    on further poking the manager said we'll give a helmet and helmet lock. was thinking about making the deal when i asked, " when are you getting the 200AS?"
    he said next week. i was like what????
    he said we're getting 5 next sunday. they are all booked but if someone backs out you can have delivery same day!
    there went a decision almost made after so much struggle!!
    have decided to see the AS200 in flesh next week and then make the decision.

    PS: I saw the service schedule at bajaj's website and was amazed to see service intervals of 5000km with oil change at 10000km. Is it really 5k service, that would be great, even if oil change at 5k. there is no time limit given. is it 5k or 6 months? or 5k 3 months?

    it is good you deceided to wait for AS200, one week seem like over optimistic. they dont have SS which was launched a month ago. you could had test ridden NS though, engine on both is same

    Hi lalit, the link you posted 'Query on pulsar 200NS price' does not open.

    Called up the dealer on saturday and the person on the phone said AS200 will take a week. Went to the dealer today and they said they are in transit from pune. were expected by saturday but truck got delayed, will be here in a day or two!!

    Dont know whats going on with the dealer. Are they trying to make a fool of me??

    actually i was there too 2-3 times this and last week , a senior guy explained me complete process. i went one day before AS was to be launched in some hotel in chandigarh, i think 2-3 days ago these bikes were launched in chandigarh, he said we will get bike in a week and by May end bike will be in showroom for buying as RTO will take his own time to register the bike. showroom guy asked me to buy Avenger :\ so i think may end is when they will get the bike. you can get test ride of NS200 , AS200 is nearly similar in size and dimension and engine too is same.

    i am also quite dissapointed with their attitude, after i had emailed bajaj to check their over-charging suddenly all Black NS were sold .i caught them red handed saying black is not available and they sold a black bike very next day and making every type of silly excuses.

    Hi all,

    went to a bajaj dealer today and saw the AS and RS in flesh.

    I have to say i really disliked the RS in pics and thought it was overdone. However, in person it looked much less repulsive. Actually looked quite ok........ hmmmm....
    No! Stop! already too confused, dont want to briing another contender. and the added weight probably wouldnt be very good on mountains. I felt that the posture of the RS was a bit leaned forward compared to the AS.

    The seating of the AS felt comfortable, although quite high. But i liked the overall feel. I was told that the AS had gone to the RTO and delivery will be possible only after 20-25 days. Going by the past commitments of the dealers it will easily be over a month. Cant wait that long.

    Asked about the Avenger stock and they had all three colors ready for delivery. However, the guy accepted that there was some talk of a new version of avenger coming with the 200cc engine that is doing duty on the NS, AS and RS. Should i still go for an avenger?

    I had an idea, can i buy a Pulsar AS200 from a city, say delhi, and ride it to a different state and register it there. (other state being Panchkula, Haryana) It would have had the RTO clearance here by then. Is there any extra paperwork or clearances?
    I was earlier told that if I buy abike from chandigarh and get it registered in Panchkula, the RTO charges 1.8% extra tax. How difficult is the process?

    Can some senior Member appraise me correct price (on-road and ex-showroom) for Bajaj Avenger for Navi Mumbai location and a consumer friendly Dealer of Navi Mumbai area? Your inputs would be much appreciated.

    you can find the ex-showroom price from the bajaj website itself. Bajaj Avenger 220 DTS-i Price in Maharashtra(Mumbai City)
    if the bajaj auto dealer tries to say the price has been recently increased or its VAT or anything else just call to bajaj customer care and they will handle the issue. same thing is going on in chandigarh and bajaj customer care sorted it out with the dealer.

    Hi, just wanted to update about the outcome of this thread. After a lot of cofusion, having returned from the dealer twice due to last minute confusion finally took the plunge today.


    Booked a red 200AS today at solan. Will take delivery tomorrow.
    Thank you all for the invaluable help in reaching a conclusion.

    I saw the manual. service interval:
    1st 500-750km or 30-45 days
    2nd 4500-5000 km or 240 days
    3rd 9500-10000km or 360 days
    afterwards every 5000km or 120 days.

    I thought the second interval was wrond. 2nd service after 240 days! shouldnt it be 2nd 120 days , 3rd 240 days, 4th 360 days and so on....
    Saw an RS200 manual and it had the same thing!

    Also it has Eurogrips. 100/80-17 front and 130/70-17 rear. I have heard a lot of negatives about it. So any ideas for good replacement tyres in the above sizes.
    went to a local MRF dealer, he had front FX1(Rs 1800 not FY1) and rear Revs-S (Rs 2800). how are these?


    EDIT: Any special care to be taken for running-in in the Hills?
