I have been pretty quiet on this blog for quite some time. It’s mainly because of my new addictions. First addiction is physical computing (more about it later). The other one is that, I have started roaming around the city with my new bike 🙂
Ever since I moved to Bangalore, I was planning to get a new bike, instead of bringing my old bike from Chennai. As with anything I buy, I started my research and finally settled on two. Bajaj Pulsar 220 and Yamaha FZ-S. I test drive both and both were pretty good, but in the end Yamaha FZ-S won on the basics of exclusivity.
If you go to any parking lot, you can see hundreds of Pulsars, but only a few FZ-S and I liked my bike to be unique. 🙂
You can check out the full specs of the bike from the manufactures site.
From my experiences so far
- The bike is designed for being exclusive and to attract people – and it does it very well.
- Complete digital display
- Awesome road grip
- Has an excellent self-starter. I have not faced any problem with it in the last 20+ days.
- Mileage – If you want a bike which gives good mileage, then this bike is not for you. I am hardly getting around 35 Km/Litre of petrol. 🙁
- Because of the shape of the tank, if you try to push the bike forward while sitting on it with your legs, you might hurt yourself.
Apart from it, I really like the bike and it has so far held up to its tagline – Smart way to rule the streets 🙂
