It shall be worth it if you get the right products and tune well. Performance does come at a price.

Tell me which is better, Spend 10 lakhs for a R1 or spend 8-10K to tune your pulsar to perfom??

Default Get a P-280 Classic

I bought a classic P-180 almost 4 years back, Done over 85000 KM.

5 Trips to Ladakh , 3 to Lahaul and Spiti, Chandigarh Shimla -- 100 times , Shimla Delhi 20-25 times never gave a problem .
I tried my hands on the new ones but none of the new ones have the punch .

Some mods needed on the Classic.
Get a DTSI-1 swing arm -- Classic lacks length .
Try and upgrade the clutch -- though the standard is enough to pull a good wheelie . I had to change my Clutch plates at 3000 Km as the initial design had a problem of slipping and were replaced free of cost by the dealer. Next changes came frequently at 20- 25 K km,s –
Upgrade the Headlight.
Try and get a KNN filter.
Get a custom seat -- I have a broader one made by Khajanchi here in Delhi
Before you buy the bike look for Timing Chain noise – Though it can be fixed/changed in 45 minutes.
If you are a extreme rider get the Chain Spokes changed to one on the Karizma .
The new ones have a Rev- limiter that hampers performance the Classic dose not have any.
The power delivery of the classic is great around 5K RPM.

I have smoked almost all other bikes on my rides on my beauty. Love to ride it uphill on hill roads and rev it hard. Have a look at http://rajnishbhogal.blogspot.com

Yeah, my 180's seen me through many tough rides - including the kinnaur-spiti-kaza-keylong-leh route - which was 1200 kms of bone crunching with 2 ppl and 35kgs of luggage. Never missed a beat despite the humongous load, terrible roads.

(tried but couldnt figure out how to get the pix inlined here)

The gear problem : I never really faced this in a major way - has more to do with too fine a touch - its a pretty easy and precise shift mostt other times. I did ride the 'Wind' once and its not half as 'smooth' as that though.

Performance: The bike has more than it can really handle - it (at least the classic) did feel a little scary/stressed at 3 digit speeds and is most comfortable doing 85-90 all day.

I'd say get a decently maintained bike, get good tyres, ride it for a while and then think of what mods you need. Some need more power, some need the stability (the UG swingarm is apparently a useful mod) and some need modded seats

@zenx & bhogalrajnish; DAAYYUUUMMM...!!! You guys made these trips to those roads by yourself...?? Crap...I mean...wow. Now that's what you call DIEHARD biking.....

And I thought I was a biker too (I'm more of a driver than a rider)...the farthest trip I have ever made on my bike is from Vasai to Alibaug...

Veyron, I'd done a max of 200 kms in a single trip around Bangalore before I rode to Spiti and Ladakh - Alibaug sounds like a good trip compared to that Being a biker is not so much in the kms, more in the spirit.
Also, am dying to go again. That, a summer ride in Rajasthan, and a ride to Europe someday.
