  • RTR 160 or Pulsar 135ls

    Hey guys, I am Debayan from kolkata.This time I am here for my dad, He wants to buy a new bike the one he is using is suzuki samurai the 2stroke one..
    he is 5feet 6inches tall..his daily usage will be around 10-15km..He initially wanted to buy splendor but later when I saw the review of pulsar 135 I asked him to buy that one, but more recently one of my cousin brother told me that he could arrange a RTR160 for approx 37.5k from some Vodafone gsk offer,Now my question is will it be okay to go for rtr160 or should we go for pulsar135 that costs around 58k here..
    It's the "CHOICES,"that make us "WHO WE ARE"

      If you are getting RTR160 for 37.K (new ???) then buy one and buy one for me also.

      Jokes apart, I would have gone fot the new pulsar. Not only the price is less, but also it has 4 valves, new engine, Ok looks. (I guess you arent talking about RTR160 FI).

        assuming that ur dad might not like the sporty seating position of the rtr,i would suggest u to go for p135........
        if u can choose out of these 2,u can go for gs150 or unicorn as i would assume ur father won't b looking for a performance oriented bike but one that is comfortable ,reliable,smooth n gives good mileage......

              an apache at 37.5k is a jaw dropping price..id say go for it if the apache in question is a brand new one..
              EDIT:apache suits well only for people who dont mind the sporty posture and styling..
              so get your priorities checked and choose the one..

                  Wont the vodafone gsk offer work for the P135?

                  I really do feel the technology going into the P135 is much superior to that on an RTR160 and the RTR160's riding position + extra weight may take a bit of getting used to, i mean it is easier for older people to get back pains... But on the flip side, your dad may feel the P135 to be a power downgrade as compared to his existing ride (which actually it isn't when you get it into the right rev band).. the proverbial "No Problem Bike".

                  Advice is a form of nostalgia.
                  Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

                    Vodafone GSK is for vodafone dealers or sub-dealers they can buy things with points that they earn when they sell a connection..Now people sell their points too..RTR 160 is available for 15000points..1point generally costs 2-2.25rs so If i assume it to be 2.50rs 37500price comes


                    Coming to the point,since p135 is not out yet(at least not here),so I am little concerned about its actual performance...I can anyway suggest my father to test ride a RTR,will that be okay??

                      ^^^having a test ride will surely help as he can judge whether the bike suits him or not...P135 is a great city tool though.

                        for your DAD it should be P135, the RTR will give him back ache after 4kms considering his age, RTR's overtly sporty riding position, plus he wont like the revvy, vibration nature of RTR...

                        P135 will be more relaxed, upright and vibe free (4 valves)

                          P135 seems to be a more sensible bike to go after taking your considerations into account.

                            If you have to choose b/w the two, Like every one I will also suggest to go for P135. for obvious reasons mentioned by others.

                            But I will strongly recommend Honda Unicorn above all the bikes as it will suit his needs best.
