You cannot buy the Comet in India anymore, as KIL have stopped importing it.

My friend sent them an e-mail fir the same but they told him the same thing and tried to sell him the BLAZE instead.

Go in for a ZMA or wait for the 250 DTS-Fi.

I would say buy a used performance bike or else wait for the 250cc yamaha to debut. Even the pulsar 250 is great. Karizma wouldnt be upto the stick.

if u can get hold of a good well maintained Comet .... nothing like that ......

Its V-twin is just superb .... fantastic ..... the mid range is mind boggling .... and the street presence of the Comet is also pretty good .... offers u Gr8 exclusivity ......... i never liked bajaj .... so after i managed to crash my Comet ..... i went in for the ZMA .......

i think you should wait for pulsar 250

Also i woudn't suggest you to go for the comet as i have heard that it has major stability problems at high speeds

That's half the truth.

I am not posting links but google pulsar 250 and you will find equal number of links.

Maybe you are right and they changed the name.
