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

    Hi All,

    This is my first post in XBHP.

    I would like to know your suggestion on a good bike for my needs.

    1. Budget - 1 Lac (can add more 4-5 k max)
    2. Age - 27 Years
    3. Height - 5'10"
    4. Weight - 76Kg
    5. Intended usage - Daily Office commuting for 30 KM to and fro and some weekend drive near by pune withing 60-70 KM(max 1 in a month).
    6. Pillion comfort seat - Need pillion comfort seat as I will be going on weekend drive with my wife.
    7. City & Highway percentage usage - 80% City - 20% Highway
    8. Mileage Figure - Should be between 40 -50 Km/L.
    9. Low maintenance cost.
    10. City / Town / Village of residence - Pune

    I dont change my bike frequently and planning to purchase a long lasting bike at-least for 6- 7 years.

    Some of the sort listed bike are below:


    1) Suzuki Gixxer SF : I checked it in showroom, costing Rs 95000 OTR in Pune, black color SF is amazing, I wasnt able to test ride as only demo bike is available but actually test ride gixxer naked version, test ride seems good to me. I feel this will be my next bike, Please suggest.

    2)Pulsar AS 200 : Its is costing 102000 OTR in Pune, looks good, Not able to test ride this as only demo available, less inclined towards pulsar as I heard pulsar bike gives problem after 3- 4 years, Not sure durability of the 200NS /AS ( Really need your input).

    Currently i owned Hero Passion Pro ..


    Please suggest which bike perform well in respect to given points by me, Also please suggest me if i should look for other then this two bike.

    Thanks in Advance !!!!

    If pillion comfort is important, then take your wife along for the test ride and let her help in deciding.

    Also i am not sure if the Pulsar will give 40+ kmpl regularly.

    Thanks The Monk!

    Yes I will be doing test ride by this weekend as the dealer told that test ride will begin some time in this week.
    But still 5 min of test ride will not full proof for riding comfort check (i think),
    So people having Gixxer and pulsar 200NS/AS might provide feedback for a long ride comfortableness on pillion seat.
    Mileage can be adjusted +-5, But the bike should be long lasting with low on maintenance.

    Being test ridden both, I would say go with the Gixxer SF if you a sane rider who doesn't want to rev really hard. . . The bike is comfortable riding at 80 kph with no stress on the engine, looks too good, as you said above, the black is the hot seller . . . 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!!!

    You can choose either of the two eyes closed. But yes take your wife with you for test ride. IMO pillion seat of AS/NS200(split seat) is more comfortable than Gixxers(narrow seat).

    Hi Sachin
    Both the bike have differences when it comes to power.
    Having said that it does not mean a bike excels only if it has more power.

    Power:
    When it comes to low end torque, both bikes have good capabilities but the gixxer having a 155cc engine (14.8ps of power) will lag tad bit behind the pulsar having a 200cc engine with a fair power advantage. But its not about speed or acceleration.
    Iv ridden both Ns and gixxer. Inspite of more bhp on the pulsar end, I liked the cruise of gixxer more as it had the exact torque needed for city commutes.
    With pillion Ns performed better.

    Comfort:
    Gixxer to me was way more comfortable than Ns. Good ergonomics, upright wide handle bars.
    From what you mentioned I think gixxer will be a better bet.
    Personal opinion.
    Chose wisely

    ride safe

    As your height is 5'10".I think as150 will meet most of your requirements. It will offer better mileage nd also be low on maintenance.

    150AS might be a better option than 200as if you are into mileage. I own 200ns and the pillion seat is large enough but quite hard need some time for getting used to.
