Yeah dude..
sadly I think there is a gap in the Indian market.

The Zma would ahve been my recommendation but you obviously dont want that. The new pulsar might have something to it.

There is a huge price jump from 250 to imported 400's where you would be lucky to get something at 2.75.

There are some CBR 250 RR and TZR's in mumbai. Not easy to find but its there. So look around you might just find something and they are not too expensive.

Its not hard and fast as of now, but cant wait more than 2-3 months..
@ manson 89 model would be too old..i heard that cbr 400 will cost between 2.30 to 3.30 but wont be able to save that much in two three months so i thought of Taurus or fazer 250 but just called jhaveri and they said they are not plannin to launch fazer 250 in this year..sad.
any updates about taurus it looks awsome

I dont think the taurus is ever going to come into production...but, well, thats just me being pessimistic.
the Karizma was my favorite choice (if i ever 'have' to buy a four storke), but recent reports on quality issues have put me off.
Too bad there are no reliable sources on the Fazer 250, but that is where i would put my money.
Pulsar 220 Dtsfi, lets see if Bajaj manages to sort out its gear shifting issues this time round and it has a winner.
Do not buy a TZR unless ur really a two stroke fan, or else for the shape that most bikes are out there, u will end up selling it at a loss 6 months after u buy it due to frustration.
U will have to be aware while buying too old an imported machine and check out availability of spare parts, and the ease of sourcing them.

Well said!
I suggest u wait for the Pulsar DTSF-i.
Fazer 250 and the tvs taurus are still a mirage.
