I tend to disagree with you there Garvit2002... I think the rear is in keeping with the bikes design so.. does not really look that bad.. will have to wait for an 'in the flesh' look though.. and I reserve the right to change my mind at that point of time.

Rode the bike.. engine remains the same
New headlamp cowl, LED tail lamps, Body panels, Digital instrumentation from the DTSFI but with less features

The pricing is a shocker

Default Switchgear looks improved?

The switches look better. Only can see the high beam/low beam headlight switches though.

Looks NICE...!!! I think Bajaj is trying to bring the component costs down by sharing parts for the 180 and 220 FI, Viz; console, rear lamps, rear cowls (a direct take off the Apache), etc...

About that 2 years part...I don't think so. If Yamaha, Honda and even Bajaj have their way, 250cc "performance" bikes will rightly be put in their places as entry level bikes within the next year and half. Just wait and watch.

BTW, those "messerschmitt" front pilot lamps look far meaner than before..

The choke now finds itself placed below the fuel tank, next to the engine
The engine sounded a lil different too and although it remains same, expect a lil more mid-range grunt

Pricing remains almost same, which means its gonna kill the rivals easily.
