Cbz extreme is low priced than other bike.

And must have good resale too as of honda
Is that a new bike 'Honda Cbz extreme'? I guess it is a hero-honda[frustration]

Go for GS 150 R and enjoy the unique 6th gear speed.

dont know how many of you knows it but Suzuki GSR has a big rusting problem, i have seen many of their bikes getting rust mainly on its tank area, even when i went to check this bike, all the bikes in their showroom as well as in their stockyard had minor or major rusting on their tanks mainly, though the dealer did said that if its too much then company would replace it.

I just brought Pulsar 150, after testing all available bikes in this range i felt this is the perfect balance of performance,style, comfort and fun to ride bike with the only -ve i felt was a bit engine noise more to its competetiors but thats acceptable one so went for it.This new one is much much better in response, engine smoothness and no knocking as what i felt 5 years back when i went for apache instead of pulsar.

I knew that. I have seen rusting on stand, tank, handle bar end weight, chain guard etc.

The service is also good atleast here in Kannur, Kerala. In first service we have mentioned them about rusting in chain cover. To our surprise, they have repainted the cover.
They either repaint or give a new part.

He is not convinced with Suzuki.

He is now contemplating with Pulsar 150 or CBZ extreme.

Your options please !

Oh is it? 3 months is too long for a bike! Why not try the HH Hunk instead? That is also a good bike but difficult to find a comfy riding position if your friend is tall like me , else a great bike!

Yes. He is taller like you :)

HH Hunk is not that comfortable for him.

He likes CBZ, but waiting period is killing.

Hmmm then the Hunk must be hurting his knees if he rides it daily.

Why not try the Unicorn? I find it to be easy and cheap to maintain. The engine is also pretty refined and smooth and vibe free at higher speeds. FE is also pretty good.
