      Now let me tell you something upfront, when you TD R15, you're SURE to find the uncomfortable riding position. So you might want to TD the R15 in your close friend's circle & remember the 3 weeks rule.

      You'll also find the Avenger a little uneasiness in city due to the forward foot shift control & laid back riding position, this is again a factor on getting used to the ride.

      For picking RE the waiting period is roughly 10 months. FZ or Honda is my pic considering your budget n FE.

      You want a bike to :-

      - Commute
      - Relatively Hassle Free Service Experience

      What you have not mentioned :-

      - Your need for power, you want a faster than "this" bike, cruising speed, etc etc
      - Your need for comforts, pillion comforts,etc?
      - What is of prime importance to you? Flickability in traffic, Straightline highway cruising stability, ability to take corners like Rossi

      I would just want to add that, your experience with service is always independent of the manufacturer, it totally depends on the service provider is i.e. the Dealer. And let me just mention that *ALL* manufacturers have their share of screwed up service centers.

      That being said, the Jap machines need overall lesser attention to stuff from the Indian stables like Bajaj/TVS/etc.

      Additionally every bike has is pros and cons, there will always be something that you left asking for!

      Purely amongst the shortlist that you have put up I would prefer to pick up the Honda Dazzler for its all round appeal, the next best would be the Yamaha FZ!

      With regards to what you have mentioned about P220 and R15. Just want say two things :-

      P220 - I've owned it for 3 years now, clocked 60K on it... yes the PBK ASS has been frustrating at a lot of times, but the sheer torque and 140+ topspeed with a 35'ish mileage it never fails to put a smile on my face.

      R15 - Some of the Iron Butt Records are being set on this bike, if people can drive 1600+ kms in under 24 hours non stop in this it definitely is not a uncomfortable bike. The riding position is something that takes time getting used to, that's all!

      Whaaaaat??? I thought that's the case only for C5 or may be C350; TBTS was only 3 months.

      From his list
      1. GS150R-Too perfect.. Too Boring... To Uncle Type
      2. FZ - Yea Baby!
      3. Fazer - Poser Boy stuff, not worth the money you spend.
      4. Dazzler - It fast, Its fuel efficient, Its Refinied, Looks Fresh Too... My No. 1 choice!

      Trojan: How long you intend on waiting? the fantastic CBR250R is being launched early next year around the 1.5L region. A fantastic buy if launched at that price point.

      I would'nt mind waiting for another 3-4 months if CBR250R is launched with a price tag of 1.5 Lac.Do you really think it would be launched with this price tag ?

      No the wait is close to 6 months for you. About the pricing, well that is anybody's guess. Sometimes waiting for a product to launch can be a really disappointing game, but at times its good too. For me I waited about a year before I could lay my hands on the P220!

      Wonderful Praful. My choice would have been Dazzler if I were to buy a new one. Tommy I am telling you again. Just have a drive in this and check it out
