    Default Confused..

    Well.. been months since i started searching for a new motorcycle.. sold previously owned FZS and now feel as if half my body parts are broken... in desperate need of a motorcycle... but everytime when i zero in on one... something or the other makes me rethink... end result... still in square 1.

    Let me post my options

    1. FZ 25
    2. Mahindra Mojo
    3. Dominor
    4. CBR 250.

    My usage will be daily commuting (50km per day) in city traffic and touring >500km once in a month or once in two months.

    Dominor seemed to be a good one... but i am sceptical about quality of service and the longevity of the bike.. besided its tiny 13L tank combined with 25kmpl fuel economy, Dominor needs more stops than i like.

    Mahindra mojo : Felt it is a better option, its touringcapability is proven and reliability is spoken well... but again quality of service is a concern..

    FZ25 : its a well known territory for me.. Handling is smilar to FZs with little more comfort. With 14l tank and 35 as millage it can munch atleast 400km with ease.. but what pulls me out is its touring capability.. i have toured on FZS before and always felt tiny on the highways... dont want to feel the same with FZ25.

    CBR 250.. this wasnt in my list until it was unveiled couple of days ago... it isnt what every honda fan expected..but for me it should be perfect ..adequate power... comfortable riding postion... reliable... but will it be lauched in couple of weeks... cant wait for months really...

    With this... i have two options in mind... Mojo or FZ25... i almost zeroed in on mojo but the practicalities stuck me... 1. Too muh of weight for city rides. 2. Should i invest 2L when FZ25 with 1.5L can do the what mojo can do. Practically i am not gonna push more than 120 on a highway when touring... and i believe it is easily done by fz25. But its headlight on night rides... On the other hand... mojo is a relaxed tourer.

    Please help me choose one...

    Query Approved

    If you liked your FZ-S, then the FZ25 is a no brainer.
    Biking is not about what you have between your legs, its all about how well you use it!!!!!!!

    There's a new variant of the Mojo that has a carburettor, right-way up front forks and a single silencer. Same performance specs. I don't know when they will launch it formally but the bike is already in the showrooms at least in NCR. Wait for that if you want, it is going to be much cheaper (~1.3 lakhs or so)

    +1 for FZ25 if you want a bike right now.

    If you can wait for a few more weeks or a month (not sure about the time line), CBR250R should be a worthy contender. The fairing will make the highway runs easy, no wind blasts at triple digit speeds, ABS will be added bonus which the FZ lacks. Hope that the LED headlamps in the CBR a bit better than the ones on FZ25.
    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.

    Well finally decided to book FZ 25 and own it for about 3 years or so.. may be the market changes and we will have good line up in 3 years time.. Thank you all for the input.

    To be honest i was looking out since October last year... so its not a quick decision.. but anyway.. Took delever on 1st of March and its been 290km old since then... Love the bike coz of its nature... Headlight doesnt seem to be bad ( havent done any speed runs so reserving my comments for 1st service). Gear shifts are hard but feeling it getting soft as km's pile up. One bad thing though, happen to ride for few meters in newly constructed road and tiny stones keept thrown at me from the front wheel surprising through the engine area... wonder how the wet runs will be...
