Drink less beer? thats preposterous. i love beer. but i hardly drink any beer now, except when i come home to blore cos the beer sucks bigtime here. and I get enough exercise goddy, after i leave the pub i walk quite a lot, briskly in fact. mostly cos there are no auto's willing to take me home. and ur right, bikes are not my pint. so i hardly ride now, unless its a nice crotch rocket.

and porsche's and skylines, thanks for the kind words dude. i will do that regularly someday. hopefully not on indian roads.

Nice review there CD.
The bike still looks all shiny, despite the many kms covered.

I agree with the point you mentioned regarding the poor servicing for the Pulsar and also the chain issue. I have literally given up on the chain if my bike and it keeps whining while i choose to ignore. Fed up of having to replace the chain sprocket twice already.

Nice review, felt nice to read.

Yes the P180 is a nice bike with low maintainance & good mileage. Reminds me of my P180.

Wishing you many happy miles with your steed

I really wonder why your friend's ZMA's giving 23 KMPL, though. The worst I've heard of is 25. Nevertheless, no two machines are the same..
And about the Fireblade- trust me, your Pulsar can whup it around corners- tight corners, that is...
Inside the city...

But, i'll make it very clear that i never say P180 DTSi is better than ZMA or vice versa...

From what i have felt, ZMA is a better in some aspects, except that its is expensive and running costs are high... ZMA has better straight line stability, better highway prowess and the big bike feel... P180 DTSi is better at raw acceleration, FE and ownership costs...

So, i guess, if money doesnt matter ZMA makes more sense... Otherwise, the P180DTSi will be a beter choice...

Dont go for filter upgrade if you are into long rides, the sound brings more fatigue on highways(I had one on my Pulsar). Also if you dont want sound then try to get the filter in box itself.

If you decide to go for one get the classic 180s jet as its size is 115 while the stock DTSi jet is 112.5. Not a big change but safer.

Thanks a lot... Didnt know about the jetting part...

Well... My usual is to college and back... About 15 kms a stretch.... Long rides come once in a bluemoon, so the noise wont be too much of a problem..

However, filter change is not an immediate priority as am happy with the performance of the bike... will do that as budget (and parents... hehe) permit...

Nice pics once again CrAzY RiDeR, the best part about BAL is that you can update your bike with new features like the Digital Speedo et all.

Default Some better snaps... :D

One of the best things i like about the pulsar is the paint quality... The red is not the ferrari red that i would have preffered, however, the Pulsar 180 red, does have a magical touch if it is polished, specially with the sun reflecting of the tank...

Taken yesterday on my friend's SE k750i...









Today, with a nokia 6630

Guess no one has much interest in bikes!

hehe. Anyways, just updating if it may help someone. Heavy monsoons here. So, bike has done close to 10.8k only. not much running these days almost two months after the 10k mark.

Keeping the bike clean has become real hard, and am kinda worried about rusting since the bike is getting wet almost always due to the rains. Might have to go for covers for the bike.

Bike continues to be reliable and trouble free. No problems at all these days.
