there are so many good bikes in that range, it all depends up on your liking to choose the one that suites your need

* Splendor, Passion, Honda shine, Slingshot and so on.....

a bike never searches for a good biker, but some Biker's always searches for the best bike and maintain it in worst condition then calls it as worst bike

Make sure the bike is in good condition. Take your friend or someone with you so that he could ride the vehicle & see if its in good condition! Ask them for the exact mileage. Then, yeah, as usual the vehicle papers, etc.

Reading the long list, even I got confused.
My first choice here would be Honda Shine. Or else you can go for Hero Honda Passion Pro/Splendor since its easy to ride! I am not that fond of bajaj due to their reliability issues on some vehicles. I'm not saying that other vehicles are bad, but just I'm too confused here :tongue: !

Hi Abhishek,

You can go for a new bike itself. New bike will definately give no trouble at least for 1st 3 years. But if you are intended for 2nd hand then spelder would be the best. Though I have never owned splender but it's really great 100 cc bike. My personal experience say never go for 2nd hand Bajaj bikes, I had purachased New Bajaj Calliber Croma in 2006-Sep-22 and sold it on 2006-Oct-14, the odometer reading was just 16000. The bike feteched me only Rs16000 as I prefer to xhange rather selling to any mechanic. The 2nd bike was Pulsar 150, this was the great but I sold it on 15-Nov-2011 for 22,000 that too under exchange while purchasing ZMR. Wat I observe, if you are planning for new bikes you can easily go for Bajaj as these will be fun to ride but it get aged very soon in course of 3-4 years.

Splender is just like Maruti Alto, good resale value, nice mileage and easy to maintain. Only issue it's an uncle bike.

As you mention that you are 25, then why cannot you opt for new 150cc bike segment . Even Honda Twister is seems to be great bike, it gives you mileage of 70, I never rode but ppl used to tell..

At the end you should wats your inner instincts say. Happy biking...[:D]
