Default help needed-best 150 bike:URGENT..!

Hi T-bhp members..!
i am planning to buy new bike...kindly help.
right now i am driving Bajaj Caliber 115..wanted to updrade to 150cc.
my priorities are...
1) MILLAGE OR AVERAGE
2)MAINTAINCE FREE
3)CHEAP AND EASY AVAILABE SPARE PARTS.

Any brand or make but should be a long termer offering best millage figures with less/low maintainance.
planning to upgrade only bcoz of the rare availbilty of spare part and low millage of just 55 even if its just 115cc.
OR I SHOULD WAIT FOR FEW WEEKS BEFORE FINIALIZING MY BIKE.
URGENT HELP NEEDED...!

Aseem, For your requirements, the Unicorn would suit perfectly. Its got assured good mileage, it is maintenance free and spare parts are not an issue. And the Honda engine is the smoothest of them all and will last a life time.
You can also check out the HH and Suzuki 150s, but i would plonk my money on the Unicorn.

Since you looking at a 150cc bike & availability of spares you should go in for a pulsar.

My take, Honda Unicorn or Pulsar 150. Refinement in Honda is awesome, while maintenance in Pulsar is dirt cheap. Also, looks will matter, based on your build and preference, select which one is more appealing..

All the best

If I were you, I would go for the Honda Unicorn without an iota of doubt. Go for it and you will never regret your decision mate !

If I had to make this choice I would put my money on a Apache RTR. Not sure of its mileage figures. But styling is great and so is the Power:Weight ratio.

2)MAINTAINCE FREE - Fz 16 / R15 / Honda UNI / HH Xteme / HH Hunk
3)CHEAP AND EASY AVAILABE SPARE PARTS. - Pulsar/RTR
4)LONG TERMER - Fz 16 / R15 / HH Hunk

If u are looking for any Ok OK Bike - then Pulsar. - good looks/ not a good handler / low cost of spares / but frequent problems.
If u are looking for any Average Bike - then UNI or the HH - Very OLD, But refined & Comfortable & reliable.
If u are looking for a Good Bike - then RTR - Easy in CITY, HIGHWAY & RACE TRACK.
If u are looking for any Excellent Bike - then FZ16. - Very New, good specs, assured ZERO Maintaince.

I hope this is extensive enough for you to make the decission.

Happy Riding Safe Riding!!!
