    On most of the surfaces you should do fine on the NS. However on sloping surfaces where your ride height will change or if for example you stop and have to place your legs where there is a 1 inch pothole, you will have to lean the bike a lot to get a firm footing.

    Please dont take this as a criticism for your height. I mean it with the best of intentions. My father (god rest his soul) was 5 ft 7 and preferred the bullet because of the low seat height.

    In this regard the Dominar is better since it is lower than then NS. Test ride both and decide buddy.

    Thank you so much everyone, seems like Dominar is going on top.

    I was thinking the same but some of my fellow friends says that I already own a 180cc there is no sense getting 200cc :P .

    I was thinking that too.
    Mileage effect of 5-6kmpl won't be a problem :P

    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

    Thankyou Vikramaditya,

    I understand that.
    I've ridden 220 on and off too.

    I was avoiding 220 because it seems to be everywhere and old technology used.
    But there is are positive point to it too.
    I know what that bike is,
    If i break down i can get it fixed like anywhere plus even I know some basic repairs
    And Fairing as you said will be a Positive point.

    I was avoiding that as few of my friends are again on the point.
    I have a 180CC one, why getting a new 200cc?
    Well the 200 cc is more than just a 20 cc upgrade. the 200 is basically a re engineered Duke 200 engine. So what you get is totally different from a bored up 180 cc.

    Dominar seems to be suiting here, but as new in market can spares be a issue? - Too early for me to comment on this.
    Heating is not a issue, neither a lower fuel effeciency of 5-6kmpl
    Yes i have a short height 5'6
    I just don't want to regret later that I spent 1,50,000+ just for a much daily commute and some nice himachal trips

    Bdw spiti is due this year :P Leh next year

    If 200NS\P200 is doing the same thing easily why to get a 400cc bike?
    Bdw 1 question.
    I get altitude problems in my p180 everytime when on the hills. Does 200ns\220 have the same? - Not sure buddy, havent ridden the NS on high altitude.

    If yes , i will definately go for Dominar due to Fi.
    Test Ride and Decide Buddy!
