Good job. Maybe it will look better with the chrome cladding removed from the silencer.

Looks awesome, job well done

some suggestion:

1. remove the front crash gaurd, or paint it matt black.
2. remove the chrome heatgaurd from the exhaust or paint them in sync with the red colour on the rims.
3. clip on handlebars.
cheers:

Edit:
4. Pulsar indicators.
5. I guess the front tyres are not zappers, if not change them to the zappers.

Thanks guys for your appreciations and recommendations.
@ jkdas and A S H V I N - yes, they are MRF zapper Qs.Not that new..3 weeks old.
@ ssjr0498 - Bro, the original doom got doomed in an accident. Then for a change i had fitted honda dio's headlight in my bike and finally this pulsar's doom.
@ Munish - not yet decided about stickering or graphics, dude. But i did a stripe across the body in silver.Thats it. You guys think that stickering should be done?

Yah jpl, removal of chrome heat guards, new indicators and clip ons are going in soon. But the front tire is new. Just 2 months old. A few more 100kms before changing it na?
Removal of crash guards is a big 'NO' for me..Saved ma skin many times.. But will paint it black for sure, bro.
Thanks for all those excellent tips. I appreciate that.

How about a simple body kit? Cover up the engine area,and a few color effects and the bike will look really good.

you are welcome bro , found some stickering options that you can consider:

1. http://www.nurburgring.org.uk/trip_r...-notyellow.jpg

The plain ducati silver stickering would look good, in your case honda 150. CBZ in the same sticker in smaller font size below the Honda sticker.

NOTE: If you opt for the slver sticker, you may also consider painting the red part on your rims to silver, will go with the overall look.

2. http://resource.harley-davidson.com/...rscdx_1024.jpg

or you can have the fonts on the tank match the red colour on the rims, like above.

NOTE: Note the exhaust dual tone, silver and black, IMHO after removing the heatgaurd you can paint the same( or partial chrome as in the pic if possible)

I have always been a naked bike lover. Thats why i kept my bike like that itself.But what kind of simple mod you suggest NITIN bhai? That extended-kind of engine guard? I've seen a few unicorns with those and IMHO, it looked like fully armoured soldiers without the head hear. Looks so incomplete. Na? Its just my view bro.. And what kind of color effects you suggest bhai?

maashe.. a naked/street bike look is good,no doubt.
I was thinking more on the lines of incorporating a cover for the engine,to give it a more complete look.
But since you prefer the naked look, let it be. Add a few (very few) stickers and your bike will look superb.
Its pretty good now, make it adi poli!!

The bike looks good wischvuanaudh. Had the original headlight unit been there it would have looked one killer machine, well my personal opinion. Also it will look good without the stickers, so in my opinion don't put any kinds of stickers or decals on it. And one last thing, don't why but i think that the original spoked rims will do more justice to the overall looks of the bike.

Cheers,
Dhaval
