Why would he want to sell a new Fazer for such a discount? I think there must be something wrong with the bike or maybe he ran over a pig , as here they consider the vehicle to be unlucky if it runs over a pig!

Or maybe it can be a genuine reason as he must be leaving abroad. Check out the bike to know the exact reason.
Wow,run over a pig and you get it for close to free. Let me know if something that sort happens. I dont mind in a wayfarer's tale.[:D]

I just wanted to save her some money, but looks like she is not interested.

Your budget is a lakh! Not interested in a used M800/Zen are you?
Cool mom. She wants you to get a bike! Send her my regards.

@ guys

I am 6 feet tall.

So not sure about R15 fitting me.

I already have horror experiences with Bajaj(my current bike is a Bajaj)

Karizma R looks quite old to me now

Karizma ZMR does not deserve the 1 Lakh price tag

Used ninja - A new one costs 3 lakh OTR, so used ninja for 1 lakh = impossible

Royal Enfield Thunderbird = Heard bullets are not reliable. And my dad finds them too noisy and heavy

Fazer = 80 K for 150 cc mill that does duty on FZ series, not acceptable.

Will probably wait till diwali for the rumored Honda 250cc bike :stupid:

If I were to get a car, I would take away my dad's Maruti 800.

Run 75K KMs

2007 model.

If you are tall forget about the R-15.

Coming to Thunderbird interestingly today only i came across my friend who owned a Thunderbird for 3 years and he said it was trouble free though expect some small niggles likes loose contact in wiring and stuff. Apart from that a great bike to own if you can wait that long for that bike. My friend now sold off Thunderbird and bought the Classic 350 a few months back. In your words , the state of RE is just like Skoda in India , half of the reports must be rumours.

ZMR and Fazer are good choices IMO considering the fact you are also tall!

@ coolDhaya

Dude check out the Mahindra 2 wheeler thread and the Mahindra Cevalo thread.

A Mahindra 300 cc bike with 24 BHP is coming. [clap]

And I am going to wait for it. :stupid:

Why not FZ-S?


All the above bikes are equally good. Pulsar outscores the others with its gadgets , whereas Stunner's and Xtreme's engines are better refined than Pulsar!
