The choice is obvious; go for any of the bike, it will serve the purpose. If you want a bit better ride quality (only comparitive; does not mean x-treme does not have better ride quality), go for Hunk. In all other aspects, both the bikes behave the same.

i noticed that my T is inclined towards right by few inches. Can it be the problem due to which it shakes when ridden on edges?

Best handling bikes are
1 -> R15(priced a bit high)
2 -> FZ16(big rear tire so good road grip)
3 -> Unicorn(has great handling,comfort,mileage,smoothest engine etc)
4 -> RTR (Good bike for sporty & speed enthusiasts but vibes a lot after 65+)
Mostly in a long run, bikes with mono suspension has better stability in curves at high speeds than conventional dual spring as in due course of time both the springs might not function equally so reduces curve handling after some years.

The R15, the classic CBZ, RTR and Karizma i felt extremely confident when taking corners on these from the word go. Not ridden the fz16 yet, but heard good reviews about its handling.

Agree with you completely - my two pennies worth of handling is as follows :
1. Should carry me and my pillion (on the straights/around corners/up and down hill) without losing its poise.
2. Should stop when the brakes (front+rear) are applied without any drama.
3. Should allow me to cut corners and squeeze through gaps - without requiring me to put my foot down on the road.
4. Should change gears smoothly and accelerate well in any gear
5. Heavier vehicles overtaking me should not upset the bike
Amongst Pulsar / Unicorn / Karizma / Apache (150) - (touched speeds of 85 - 95 kmph as per odo) Unicorn is the best. Karizma runs close. Apache's hieght and handlebars felt slightly off mark. Pulsar was OK in the city, but at higher speeds my confidence progressively went down.
(PS - My bike Gladiator. Why? (a) Budget! (b) Fulfilled all the above!!. But it doesn't score on two fronts (a) bike tramlines a lot (b) seat is too soft and you can't slide your a** back and forth easily)

1> Any day Apache RTR 160 With MRF Rubber
2> Karizma.. Very slow to response to quick lane cutting .Crosswinds make her unstable.
3> Bajaj/Unicorn : Notchy gearshift for Bajaj.Good handling
4>R15 May be good but who will pay the premium.And its low end torque is very bad so one has to always ride her hard to get best out of her.
