Model: Bajaj Pulsar 180

 

Likes: Powerful, really quiet, lots of torque , can carry pillion rather easily, looks sporty although its 4 stroke.

 

Dislikes: cant get replacement parts from anywhere other than UM, a lil heavy but thats good if the rider is big, tendency for exhaust can to rattle.

 

well its an indian bike so quality definitely loses to the jap ones by a bit. however its a good cruising bike with a good posture and its easy to control. plus economy is really good too

Sorry to hear about the hit and run but it sure looks like a rugged machine!

 

I'm thinking with the 200cc's torque you could increase your cruising speed beyond 90 by reducing size of rear sprocket and using a bigger sprocket in front.

 

My Phantom can go beyond 100 but the RPMs soar sky-high. But with the big torque (for a 2B) you could optimise the sprockets to cruise faster and improve fuel economy at the same time.

 

I don't have to throttle up much uphill @ or > 90kph so there is enough torque to handle the top-speed optimised sprockets. You'll also find you need to change gear less often since the gearing has automatically become 'longer'.

 

Disclaimer: Spocket size customisations only recommended if you know your powerband well.

Kalyan: Thank you for the info perhaps u can guide/advise me on where would be reliable to do such replacement for better performance. Appreciated :)

 

Can do at any bike shop that respects it's customers' opinions. Sprocket size selection is the most simple, risk-free and effective tuning you can do for any chain-driven bike.

 

Just tell them to (-) the back sprocket and (+) the front sprocket by one size for higher top speed.

 

This will affect your low speed performance as you will need to 'play' with the gears more to get desired acceleration. But once on the highways for the rest of the trip, your bike will be very happy. Less rpms = better economy, lower wear and tear.

Triumph Daytona 675 2009

 

Pros:

- Smaller, agile and sleek body compared to other 600cc class, a little more nimble.

- Inline 3 cylinder engine, Torquey, in sg roads very subtle n lovable

- Fuel consumption about the same as any average class 2 ride. 17+km/l

- Maintenance the same as japs bike slightly cheaper.

- Spare parts are not that difficult to find when you do your hmwerk and realise that other bike parts suzuki, yamaha, bmw, kawa are also compatible to this one such as oil filter, levers, throttle, sprocket etc...great way to save.

- Many changes from the 2006 model including brake calipers and engine werks. (Rode the 06 previously)

 

Cons:

- Bike gets hot easily at traffic jams (which cls 2 bikes dont?) :sian:

- The price for this ride is around the price of R1 '09. So basically paying the price of 1000cc bike for a 600cc series.

- Insurance about the same as 750cc to 1000cc bike.

- Top speed not that high compared to other 600cc but I'm ok with that since i dont travel at top speed everyday.

 

 

All in all very happy with this ride but of course comes with a little price to pay. Actually almost every bike has a price to pay, if not the machine then insurance or spare parts etc...:thumb:
