    Default New BIKE: budget 1.5 LAC

    Hi reader,
    Please help me to buy a new bike(naked preferred) with flexible budget around 1.5 lac to commute 10-15km daily
    height 5'8"
    I'm a comfort loving guy who ride vehicle very linearly, hardly braking hard. I like to cruise around 70kmph, and expect a mileage greater or equal to 38-40kmpl

    1. The NS200 is for flick-ability and power delivery, but I'm not sure has Bajaj corrected the O-ring issue which lets coolant leaks into engine, and I'm also not sure about it's mileage.
    2. fz25 has got almost what I wished in a bike but it's instrument console is very disheartening with it's price tag and now I read people exasperated of tappet noise which grows with time.
    3. Gixxer and RTR200 would be a pain for pillion so it's not in the list.
    4. I have also looked for RE Classic 350 but as I would be riding mostly in cities I can't compromise seating comfort with time
    5. Dominar is offering more what is required viz. power delivery
    6. .After reading the whole forum for months I have decided to get FZS-FI (for comfort, fuel efficieny, power delivery), but I would miss the punch like NS200 (please correct if I'm wrong). as I couldn't compare the two

    I'm looking for a nice bottom and mid range, keeping fuel efficiency in mind.

    i would not advice a bullet because of reliability issues.(i ve suffered with TB500, now sold)
    i would only recommend you go for ABS bike. Its a life saver. please dont compromise on safety
    currently following bikes are there that have abs

    -Dual channel ABS-
    Dominar 400
    Duke 390
    apache 180

    -Single channel ABS-
    Gixxer SF FI
    Intruder 150

    My recommendation is in the above mentioned order.
    D400 is most bang for the buck and has the best headlights too.
    Good luck.
