stunner comes with only electric start option.
so how is the quality of starter.
The unicorn self-start is the best one as far as i have seen but its always good to have kick start in cold weather or early mornings.
Thats worrying me on stunner front.

The dealer told him to ride the bike and promised to source and fit the old type shifter when the bike came in for the first service, and he kept his promise!

I wont prefer pulsar 150 and 220 is bit out of budget. so is yamaha FZ*.

Will go with what i dont like first:
Twister:
1. handle bar, looks too oldish. replacing those shouldnt cost a bomb.
2. tyres are too skinny. again not sure abt upgrade.

Stunner:
lots of graphics, costing 61k on road. but gives better mileage.

Unicorn:
I have old unicorn, and just love its plain looks. Thats why i hate unicorns
silvery graphics.

Pulsar 135:
Didnt like the seating as i am used to unicorn.
But looks are ok. good mileage and costing same twister (with disc).
Hey brother wait if you can because a sports model of UNICORN is soon going to be launched.. my friend just bought the new unicorn. I think its got quite good looks too it looks big.

My personal opinion is P-135. It is terrific value for money. Go for it. I am sure you won't repent

Go for the pulsar, excellent bike, i have ridden it extensively, very refined, comfortable and handles great. Even better than my pulsar 180.

Else go for the Unicorn, but wait for the new one.

Thats excellent ! So, its not a big deal after all. Again, if sourcing of the old type shifter is a problem, will that mean the gen 1, 2 unicorn owners are at the mercy of the dealer/new shifter if in case they have to replace theirs?

Surprisingly there is no mention of Yamaha Gladiator. Have u taken test drive of the same. Though late Yamaha seems to be taking Indian bikers seriously now.
Personally I don't have any experience of bikes but suggested because nobody suggested so far.

I don't think so, it may just be that the old shifter is not an item readily stocked by the dealers!

As you have Unickorn already which is best among you have shortlisted. Riding position is better in this. You will feel less power/torque with Stunner. I may say HH Hunk, Unicorn. Better consider HH Karizma, Enfield.
