    Default What Bike: The 150cc Conundrum

    Hi All,

    I was thinking of buying a Bajaj Pulsar AS150. But I don't see them much on the road.

    I was just concerned about
    Is it a failed product?
    Is there any major problem with the product?
    It's just more than a year old now since launch but people says it is just a cosmetic upgrade from older Pulsar 150, is that true?
    Should I consider buying FZ V2.0 FI instead of Pulsar AS150?
    Is there any new bike coming soon which looks promising than AS150?

    Thanks for your help.

    Default Need suggestions for selecting bike

    Hi
    I am going to buy new bike. I need bike for daily run and occasional touring. I have taken ride of Suzuki Gixxer, Pulsar 150 AS and Hornet. I am still confused to select between these three also gixxer sf. Expectations from bike are:
    1. comfort for rider as well as for pillion
    2. mileage
    3. good looks

    Please help me as I want to get my bike as early as possible.

    Hornet seems to be better option for pillion seat, mileage. Looks are subjective, but I liked it and bought just 2 days back.

    Hornet satisfies your requirements . It has a comparatively better seat , looks as good as gixxer and mileage is equal to gixxer.

    +1 for Hornet. A good all rounder bike.
    Currently there are special edition bikes in showrooms with interesting color and graphic options.
    Take test rides and then decide.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    Even though FZ 2.0 is Fuel Injected and ride quality is good but it lacks the punch one might expect from the offerings in this range.

    Give Honda CB Unicorn 160R a shot as it looks bit subtle (in black) yet is powerful. While you are at it, checkout Hornet as it has that sporty look and wider rear tyre.

    Haven't tried out Gixxer 155 myself yet but IMO that bike falls in the same range.

    Cheers!

    Hi Vish2207,

    Considering pillion comfort, I hav three options Honda Unicorn 160, Hornet 160R n Yamaha FZ 2.0FI.. all three r gud bikes, though Hornet gives u tht extra power n wider rear tyre, Unicorn a little extra mileage n FZ superb ride quality.. Gixxer out because it's below average pillion comfort. choice is yours..
