    FZ, Hornet, Gixxer all are the good looking bikes. I personally like Hornet a lot for the way it looks.
    Can't go for hornet as it offers stiffer ride . My friend advised me to not to go for yamaha fz fi as it does not have a kick start option? Will lack of a kick starter may become a problem when bike gets old?

    Satyam,
    Have you considered the Unicorn 160 or 150? Or Yamaha SZ?
    Also the RE Electra is a good option since it has 19" wheels that glide over bumps which 17" wheels might slightly struggle with.
    Bullet is heavy, but as long as you balance it, you should fine.

    @Satyamzma - a pre-owned impulse w/ a karizma engine plonked in it will do the trick for u or else a well worshipped unicorn. others listed by u might not serve the expected purpose IMHO

    Finally decided to go for Unicorn 150. I also test ridden hornet but found the seating & handlebar position way too sporty.

    My previous bike was Electra & only seat was comfortable ,suspension is hard overall its not a comfortable bike for city use.

    Fz seems to be the best option
    I rode dazzler which was the precrder of hornet so i can assure that ergonomics arnt great
    Gixxer - service issues otherwise its good enough

    Yes FZ is a great bike but with low fuel efficiency & lack of kicker.

    I got Unicorn 150 & is really comfortable bike,lower back pain due to riding bullet has completely gone now. so far i have ridden 1000 kms on it & its giving me around 55 kmph of mileage which i think is best in 150 cc category.

    Appreciate the feedback I am thinking of getting a Unicorn but still exploring other options.
