Better looking and better chrome quality than the RX, though the RX always had the better build quality long term.
Add the very cool ignition/ lock.
Better lights.

But
The RX was more fun. Had access to both. Used both.

Well... I have been a biker since I was a teen. I had to take a pretty long break in between, but at 30, I am looking to go back to biking.

My 'bikes owned so far' list goes something like this (sorry, but I'd like to include the scoots too).

(1) 1998 Kinetic Honda Marvel (Was 16 then, when the bug bit, and how!)
(2) 2000 Enfield Machismo A350
(3) 2002 Bajaj Pulsar 180
(4) 1984 Rajdoot 350 LT - now an HT (still with me)
(5) 1986 Rajdoot 350 LT
(6) 2004 Hero Honda Karizma
(7) 1983 Rajdoot 350 HT
(8) 1987 Rajdoot 350 LT
(9) 2005 Yamaha RX135 - bought from the showroom, from the very last batch (still with me)
(10) 1996 Yezdi Roadking
(11) 1995 Yezdi Roadking
(12) 1964 Lambretta Li150 (still with me)
(13) 1979 Lamby 150 (still with me)
(14) 2001 Yamaha RX135 5 speed
(15) 1992 Kinetic Honda DX (was my father's last ride, I've kept it safe in his loving memory)
(16) 2010 Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSi F

My job, location and other things had kept me away from my bikes and scoots till now, and they're all rotting away at home. Hope to relocate in another 3 months and start their restoration one by one. If I had to add a new bike to the stable, really don't know which one could really give the joy of riding the RD.

Once a biker, always a biker. Cheers to all you bikers out there!!

I love to ride on roads which are not used much, my Thunderbird twinspark is the perfect companion for this! I am a big Pulsar fan too. Previously owned a P150 and later upgraded to a P200.

Back in college I almost did a couple of 300 km rides every month, but now work has got me all tied up. I still find time for a nice long weekend ride. Keeps me young!

I still use my trusted bike Bajaj Discover 125 (1st Generation) for daily office runs. My Punto is used only in weekends/out station trips or on rainy days. It has served me tirelessly for over 51K kms in over 5 years of ownership! Have not faced any major complaint till date. Attached below are 2 pics.

I am jealous of your rides!!
I am in the process of reviving my 95 model bullet.we have a pulsar and a lml scooter in the family too.
Nothing beats the lml in terms of practicality though! I hate to see geared scooters die because people are too lazy too change gears.!!

Continuing to be in love with my 2002-model HH Splendor.
Butter smooth rides. Hassle-free. 65+ mileage. What more can you ask?
Truly a "fill it, shut it, forget it" bike.
Thanks HH.
ODO ~ 45,000.

Cool Re: How many bikers in here and what do you ride?

I practically grew up watching my Uncle ride the Yezdi Jawa. First bike which I rode was my brother's HH CD Deluxe after which I shifted to the Mahindra Duro.

I have recently got a new RTR 180 and am loving it !! Posting some pics.

I am not that new to Biking as I am a CAR/SUV guy, but never owned one until now. I bought Pulsar 200NS Blue. The bike has since attracted lot many stares and queries from the public.

Althought I learned to drive a Car at the age of 10. Bikes have always been the passion. Maybe outside India I would prefer Cars.
(1) I learn to ride on a yamaha rx 100
(2) Hero Winner( 1st bike i owned.) age 16
(3) Hero Honda CBZ - As soon as i turned 18, ditched the Winner( worst bike ever) and been using it till now.
(4) Pulsar 200 NS - Waiting for a few months to see how the bike performes before I sell my CBZ ( i am 1 bike guy, although i love bikes i dont want to own more than 1 bike at a time.)

First motorcycle I rode was the humble TVS 50 when I was 12 or so.
First bike was a modified splendor.
Spent a few months with an Activa.
Fell in love with biking when big brother bought the Thunderbird.
Bought a Pulsar 220 in college. Still got it.
Now that I'm working, have bought a Ninja 250R, which has taken my biking experience to an all new level!

After spending 11 years trying to convince my parents to allow me to get a bike...finally convincing them around 4 months back..bought a bike 'Pulsar 150' and became a NOT REQUIRED INDIAN (exported to dubai) 3 months back...now my bike pic stays at my desk while my baby is driven by my friend

Now planning to get myself a bike.here...cause right now that's the only vehicle i can afford apart for majestic cycle.

Below is the pic of my bike after coming back from the service center thanks to my stupidity (found the bike has my b'day as the number 4/5/85)
