    Default Blame it on Yamaha Or Wait for the Yamaha ???

    Guys I need ur suggestions for my new bike. I was very happy when I came to know about my new bike. But after some time I got confused and asked myself "DUDE, Congrats for the new bike but which one?"

    My ONLY choices-
    When FZ-16 was launched, I was flattered, Finally A real street bike in India. But after some time FZ-S was launched. And now I've seen the pics of Fazer 150. My father wants me to go for Apache RTR 160 and also I have HH Hunk somewhere in my mind too.

    My needs-
    Extremely good pickup and top speed above 110kmph.
    Must be good for occasionally touring, probably once in every 2 weeks.
    (Mileage doesn't matter to me.)

    My thoughts-
    FZ-16 is a great bike but speedometer looks cluttered. And I've heard about its performance is great in streets and city but not on highway.
    FZ-S has got better colour scheme and better looking speedometer. But don't you think its not as macho as FZ-16? It has a lil bit Indian styling with bright colours and small visor which lacks the real FZ character.
    Apache is obviously more powerful than FZ and my frnd who owns a FZ told me that his bike loses out to Apache in drag race and on highway. But I've heard (and also read Owners experience here) that it has some reliability issues.
    HH Hunk is a nice bike but frankly I don't like Hero Honda Bikes. I don't know why I hate them? I've rode Hunk once and found it too stiff (ride quality) and a bit bulky.
    Last one, The Fazer 150 is looking good in the pics. I would love to own that bike. Yes, It has same features as FZ-16 with a quarter fairing. But I don't think Yamaha will launch this bike with the same speedo and colour schemes as FZ-16.

    My prefernece-
    So tell me guys which one? Should I ignore the speedometer, be satisfied with the available colour, accept whatever top speed it delievers and buy the FZ-16?
    Or should I, cut all these names from my list and start staring pics of Fazer 150 till its official launch?
    I've got this whole month either To wait or To select any one of them.

    If you have decided on the FZ-16, then go for it ... buy it, go on rides and post beautiful photographs here..

    If this month is the max time you can wait... Then you should go for the FZ, as you are somewhat hooked into it. Dont trust the speculations on new launches...

    PERSEVERE... failure is not an option!

    Good pickup and top speed, mileage not an issue, touring twice every month...
    Karizma fits the bill perfectly...have you considered it?
    Also look at the new GSR150....its worth taking a test drive atleast. The rtr is beautiful in city but I dont know about the touring capabilities.

    good luck..

    Why dont you consider the new Pulsar 200?
    It's also a nice looking bike[pain for existing p220 owners] ..but though you can give it a look and yeah Apache 180 is also coming(coming....coming....coming...) which is same with ninja , you havent given your budget.
