    Default Re: Select Bike between Suzuki Gixxer SF or Pulsar AS200..

    Thank a lot for all your feedback.

    I have test ridden both the bike, Below is the points.

    Gixxer SF: Found exactly as you all told it is really good to drive in city , handling is way better then any bike I have ridden, Its quick, this bike is really fun, No negative point found.

    With regards to the pillion comfort it seems to be good initially while not sure for the long journey (say 30-40 KM), We used the bike for 2- 3 KM on the old Mumbai-Pune highway, her height is five and half and seating and getting down on bike for the pillion is really easy, not even used the rear foot rest. She was so happy Its a big plus point .
    It seems a win win situation for me to get the gixxer SF But waiting period is 30 days

    Pulsar AS200 : Looks is really cool, Black as well as Red, both are in solid color unlike the ongoing NS. Projector headlight, both front and read disc brake for safe riding.
    Test Ride: Its really a heavy bike, I was not able to take a quick turn, found a bit uncomfortable to handle in low speed, test ridden it in the bajaj premises in a very narrow path, so not even crossed 35 KMPH, Might be a different story at the higher speed, Need to take a road test drive.

    Pillion seat comfort is fine, but it requires extra effort to seat on and getting down from the bike.
    The showroom sales person told if its heavy then go for lower variant AS150 which will be available in coming 15- 20 days, It will be a similar looking bike as AS200 but with a lower engine capacity only and cost Rs 10000 less then the price of AS200 (i.e. OTR Pune 90K for AS150) .


    Now AS 200 is out from my shortlisted bike.

    Should I check pulsar AS 150 too and wait 20 days for its availability in showroom Or should go with Gixxer SF?

    Please suggest I am a bit confused as Gixxer SF also requires 30 day waiting period.

    Yes Friend its quite good and comfort as well.
    I have used FZS for couple of week, My cousin owns it, not choosing it because now its seems a bit old on the road to me,
    Also I will not be changing my bike in coming 5- 7 years , So down the line after two three years it will show it edge and might be too old.

    Thanks Rakesh!

    Yes I am a sane rider not a rev one.
    test ride even clearer that I should settle down for 150 cc engine. Now I am thinking to get gixxer sf or AS 150 as mentioned previous reply.

Coming to the AS, it's pretty good, a NS which got a little better looking . . . So finally SF for better mileage, sane speeds, good performer, overall the quality too is really good and AS for more power, Jack of all and decent mileage too . . .

    PS: Take that "pulsars aren't reliable" thing out of your mind as the new pulsars are way better in quality and it all depends on how you maintain your bike. . .

    Cheers!!!

    Yes Now the choice is between Gixxer SF and AS150.

    Is AS150 is having the same pulsar 150 engine or its a different one , dont have enough info except its look like similar to AS200. also yet to available in the showroom.

    Hi Sachin,
    I honestly think you lost your heart out to gixxer already. It may just be just to console the inner soul that you checked all the options.
    Jokes apart, I think there will hardly be any marginal difference in weight between the as 200 and 150. However best bet will be to wait it out a few more days and see the bike out front and then chose.
    Regards,

    ride safe

    @Sachin_786 AS150 has new engine, It seems to be a scaled down version of NS200. The power figures have been bumped up too.

    Just wait for 15 days and check it out.

    Any of the option AS150 or Gixxer would be a wise choice, your heart has to tell you the answer

    Yes you should add fazer v2.0 or fz fi v2.0 to your list as they fit your pillion seat comfort as 5'10

    Why not the AS150.

    Has power as much as the R15.

    Triple spark tech should return 50+ kmpl.

    Pillion seat is decent.
    The bike is pretty well handling.

    Take a Test Ride.

    Default Re: Select Bike between Suzuki Gixxer SF or Pulsar AS200..

    Let's clear couple of things...

    Engine in 150AS is not the scaled down version of the 200NS/AS. We all know that 200NS/AS is liquid cooled while the 150AS is air cooled. Second, engine in 150AS is twin spark unlike the 200NS which is a triple spark.. the engine architecture in both motorcycles is completely different. They are hardly related. Only similarity on paper is that both are 4 valve.

    It is likely that the 150AS engine is the bored out version of the pulsar 135 which is also a 4 valve air cooled engine.

    yes Anand,

    I like gixxer as well as pulsar new series AS 150 /200.
    Well its a huge amount of 1 Lakh for both bike, It is better to check out all the option for a good reliable bike then to regret latter.
    I am delighted that xBHPian are helping me to choose a good bike and giving wise advice. Thanks all!

    Not sure what my test ride was less comfortable with AS200 while gixxer SF is only 7 kg less then AS 200, So we cant say waight is the issue. Might be something else like seat and handle bar not sure.

    As I am not in hurry, I will wait for AS150 and take couple of test ride then decide .

    If the engine on AS150 is new, then it will have same issue in the initial batches of AS150 which was the case with NS200 ?
    because I have heard that NS200 initial batches have major issue, latter get resolved.

    Hi Sachin
    Precisely, an amount should give you an optimum utilization. If it doesn't then no point spending it in a bike. Hence take all the time you can to decide the best for you.
    A personal story where I set my minds at rtr160 for about 4 months and it took just one test ride and few good reviews and immense self thought to finalize my present bike "Fzs". I still treasure the day I saw it and rode it for the first time.
    Long point short - take your time and do test ride the as150, do a cross comparison again- shortlist your needs and requirements. Select.
    Xbhp has been a soul saver for many including me. I'll stay in dept of it for time immemorial because of all that iv learnt here.

    ride safe
