This or that??


I have planned to buy a bike. Being in Bangalore, its hard to move around places without a bike. You cant take the auto rickshaws every time, its getting costlier nowdays. The autorickshaw prices have been raised from 5 to 6 rupees per Km from the mid of this month. So I dont think Autorikshaws is the best choice in Bangalore, unless and untill you dont know to drive a bike ;)

I almost corned on to Bajaj Pulsar 150 and decided to buy that. But yesterday my brother told me that the TVS Apache has come into the market. I didnt consider Apache previously, coz., I thought it would take some more time to get into the dealer lots. But it seems they have reached the lots and the dealers have started to take booking for Apache. I also came to know that Apache has bagged so many awards like 'Best Bike of the Year', 'Best Design of the Year' and few more. Overdrive has also given great reviews on Apache. So now I have started to think why not consider Apache too?

I thought of asking you friends on what you say abt Pulsar 150 and Apache?? If you have some suggestions, comment that out!!

Get a foldable bycycle. You will have less maintainence issues.

5->6 is not a big rise. Imagining you spend 1000 bucks per month for travel alone, does the extra 200 bucks matter at all?

I still prefer to travel through through autorickshaws ...

bikes .. I prefer TVS. Though Victor was a failure, I enjoyed it greatly (the ride, I mean)

i thought i check that apache thing.. but grr.. sons of bitches have to have a flash site. morons. fckers.

anywayz., did you consider the unicorn? I'm quite happy with it. have not tried the pulsar extensively to give a comparison. But tried both at 100. and., unicorn seems more stable.

Hmm., guys I checked BikeWala, but I couldnt find details for TVS Apache ;)

Anyways, I testrode Apache and couldnt feel the power as of Pulsar or Unicorn in that. I've decided to take Pulsar 150. Joe, I didnt like Unicorn looks :(

Go ahead ,its the best with envious racing heritage and impressive handling .It does emit some vibrations though especially from rear number plate.
