    I have 2008 P220. Anything would be an upgrade

    Update : Had a heated conversation with Absolute Honda, one of the dealers. Apparently my complaint has been pin pointed to just one dealer ( I quoted that dealer's 'test ride only on booking' comment). The agenda has now become that just one dealer has refused to provide a bike for TD.
    I'm officially done with Honda now. Will be looking at other options. Any good sports tourer/ tourer if I spend around 3 lakhs maybe?

    Well for that kinda budget there are other options but I'd still say try to get a test ride from aforementioned method. It's a good bike.

    Perhaps you'd like to try TVS Apache 310R & KTM RC 390?

    Other than looking pretty good, are they good for touring as well?

    If you're a high mileage user then stick with the P220, nothing beats it when it comes to rupee/km's, if you want something seemingly bigger and better then get the Honda CBR250R, as for the rest, proceed with caution provided your intended use in high mileage.

    Other than the added benefit of a slightly better cruising speed and world of difference as far as handling goes the CBR250R doesn't offer anything that the P220 does in terms of touring, not to mention spare availability, after sales support and spare pricing is not something Honda's are well known for, especially when you come from a Bajaj.

    As I've said before, Bajaj to the Enthusiast is like a Black Man to the White Woman and you've all heard, once you go Black, there's no going Back!

    Jokes apart, having a look at my signature would give you a fair idea that I've already walked the talk.

    Here I am , just waiting to see a CBR in real, look at it, test ride it, and I'm 90% sure I would buy it cash down immediately if I get a good 'feel'.. honestly, I have read the reviews, I've read fellow XBHPians' reviews and comments, and I'm in CBR's favor without even seeing it.

    But just to be double sure, I thought I would go look at one. But its a shame like you said.

    If I rule out the CBR, I'll probably be looking at RE, Dominar(maybe).. and KTM perhaps? I don't know .... back to the drawing board
    Take a test ride of the dominar, if you already haven't. Seems like Honda dealers here are more caring than capital.
