Mileage has been between 28-42kmpl on my bike depending on how I was riding it. However, I would strongly suggest checking out the Hornet 160 and FZ-s ABS too. Those bikes look good on people too, you get good pictures, good looks, convenient performance and a good mileage as well. I don't favor 100 cc ones for us but 150s are not bad. Test drive the vehicles and see what suits you best. Also have a friend click a picture of you on the bikes. You can also try R15 S, killer looks, solid performance and much better riding position compared to V3 as far as we're talking about comfort. Oh and that bike easily crosses 140 so you have the grunt, full fairing, Yamaha engine. Pulsar RS 200 is wonderful, I'm enjoying every bit of it but it's just a little bigger.

    Happy riding
    Hi there,
    Thank you for your suggestions! Would the RS200 be too tall for me? Everything is right now on paper and I haven't yet visited showrooms, but I'll surely look around for more models. I saw your post in the RS200 Ownership Thread, and since you seem like you've done some research recently, what other bikes have you some across before settling for the RS? I probably would be holding off my purchase until August/September, so might as well wait for Bajaj's announcement in June. And yes the I haven't considered the R15S until now. Will note it down alongside. Thanks!

    Hey buddy,

    The best way to know if it'll be too big for you is to actually ride it yourself, one of my friends rides it with me sometimes and he's below 5'10, doesn't face any issues but then again every person sits differently on a bike, like they prefer their own form of comfort.
    It's a good thing you've decided to wait a little longer, a Suzuki 250 may be launched in May itself and yes the Bajaj Pulsar line-up is supposed to get something new, there's also CF Moto doing rounds on the internet and Hero motorcorp is coming with their own set of bikes. Pulsar 250 is also in the making but I doubt that'll come out this June.

    Test ride all the bikes you consider and get the feel, I'd booked a Jawa and cancelled it after I took the test ride.

    About my research, I just posted a detailed note in the RS200 ownership thread about how the decision came to be. Be sure to comment if you find it helpful.

    Happy riding
