Default is the new ZMA worth buying at this time or should i wait?

people i wanted to know if the new zma worth buying for its only upgrades are graphics and no 'Fuel Injection' given,

the thing of it is that if i buy the bike now and if a better 200+cc or nearly 200cc with FI other than pulsar dtsfi and 200dtsi from other makers like honda, hh, yamaha, suzuki etc is gonna be launched soon then the bike's value will be in serious jepordy for i need the bike for only year and half and the resale might not fetch as much...

will i be doing a fine thing buying this bike now or should i go for the 150cc segments like cbz-xtreme or the unicorn whose resales are stable?

please help !!! asap...

The motorcycle market sucks big time...

Yamaha better shut shop before they lose all their fans...

HH plans 7 bike launches for the year... All are in praise... and they come out with new CD deluxe, new achiever, CBZ extreme (only new bike), New stickered ZMA, new splendour (Soon to be out), and new stickered alloyed glamour...

Suzuki... well... Dont know what to say... The zeus is one of the smoothest bikes i have driven, but why dont they give good looking bikes???

Please dont wait for an international company to give you rocking stuff... They still see as 100cc bikers only... :(

PS: ZMA is a fairly good bike... But living with it can prove to be expensive... IF you can afford it, go for it... (I bought the P180 over the ZMA, cause i didnt find ZMA offering better performance for the poor mileage it gave... However, ZMA is better for highways use)

Yes I agree.. Pulsar won't be a good idea if you will hitting highway very often. Pulsar does not have a comfortable saddle else Pulsar is quite a nice option

thanks crazydriver, my requirement is sort of half highway and the rest city coz my college is 20kms away from the city.

i would like the bike to however deliver me a constant 35-40kmpl overall i can live with that...

however i am not sure if the other releases are soon that may make the resale of this bike go bad for i am going to sell it off after ayear and a half and leave the country for my furthur education.i wanted to know mainly if there is going to be a tough competition with the other makers releasing FI based engines? any infos on that other that the 220FI?
