Smile what should be my first bike...??

hay guys!!!
i need some help with my first bike>> i will be eligible for a lisence soon and i was thinking about kZM but the recent upgrade was a tipical hh one.. but even without a engine upgrade it is very good.. Many of u on the forum own one and iam sure the ownership experience is way better than a pulsars..
i have to still get used to the gears ... i learnt on a splendor and controling the clutch in the first gear is still a problem...
iam not bothered about the milage at all...
WHAT DO YOU GUYS SAY ???

thanks!!

Hey Vibhhu i would suggest that you spend some more time handling in the 1st gear, as you have learnt on a splendor , try to upgrade that, in other words 1st get the feel of the KZMA and its Initial pick up (check if any of ur friends have one I mean the Karizma)and a bit of handling, and then probably you can go for the new one, also look at options like P200 and P220.

I feel its all right to fine tune your riding skills on a Karizma. Its got very good clutch and gear system when compared to other bikes and should not be a problem to learn on it. It would take a maximum of 2 weeks IMO to be very comfortable at riding it. As for the bike, its is very good but the service in Bangalore is not too great and different from Bajaj.
