Just shows how far dealers play role in selling any automobile. No wonder, Fiat sales went down the drain, while Hyundai is selling like hot cakes.

Congrats, pingme!

You are absolutely right about the HH sales rep being rude. They never gave out test rides of zma, inspite of trying atleast 3-4 times. Nor did they allow me (or my friends who tried it separately on some other occasion, more than once) to test ride the Ambition 135. This infuriated me to no end. And I own an HH myself! On the other hand the Bajaj showroom guys were really helpful inspite of me telling them that I haven't decided which bike I wanna buy. They not only gave me a test ride of the Pulsar but also didn't make me feel like they were doin some "upkaar" on me.
Now the very same HH dealer has either shut down or relocated with a new name (improbable). I am happy and dunno how this new dealer is but I'm glad the old one shut down.

Please check out the TVS Fiero-FZ, do not overlook that bike.
It is a very capable bike. Much more refined than any Bajaj bike for sure. Besides, its a 150cc bike-take that into consideration too.
The bike has a very good fuel economy and is very comfortable.

The only disadvantage of Fiero is lack of 5th gear (dunno bout FX but F2 lacked it) which can be very useful if you travel a lot

I blame myself, I should have told you to get the Fiero much earlier.

Pingme i think u missed out on fiero...
bajaj cannot match the refinement levels of suzuki engines...
smooth acceleration/gears operation...and fuel efficient too...
also the seating is straight and not crouched forward...better for city riding..
