    Thumbs up Please help to choose my new soul mate

    I have enough experience in PLATINA now. Now, I want to step into 150-180 cc world.
    As I am mainly a tourer and having an athletic figure, so I am looking for bikes which can give enough comfort for long trips with optimum speed and mileage.
    My choices are: Unicorn, Apache-FI, Pulsar and CBZ xtreme

    Here I am preferring CBZ, as it is lighter than Pulsar and comfortable than Apache. But again, Unicorn is coming to my mind as its engine is too good.

    Can anyone please sort out the names and also with a 2-3 liner if possible? You can extend the list also.

    Again, I am saying, price is not my concern as I am ready to pay for the best.

    Unicorn - very comfortable with smoothest engine but also lowest power .also is a bit Outdated model in need of some changes.

    Pulsar 150/180 -all rounder with good power but is a little heavy especially the 180 . great looks and Vfm

    Apache Fi - best power and light weight and handling and Braking . instead of the 160 go for the similarly priced RTR 180 . the power wont dissapoint you at all .

    Cbz-x - has the HH service backup and is a fairly good bike but nothing unique .

    also look at suzuki gs150 - its very smooth engine with 6 gears cwhich dont stress engine on long rides.

    +1 for GS. It seems to be rightly balanced as per your need.

    Default Xtreme or Unicorn

    Unicorn : Excellent engine refinement, long termer, quality and reliability is very good.
    Xtreme : Almost same as Unicorm, better performance, good service network.

    Test ride these machines and listen to your heart.

    Honda is coming up with a new 150cc, which is said to be sporty, with same mill from Unicorn. Cannot say exactly when they would launch it. If possible, wait for that.

    Both Xtreme and Unicorn are good.
