Bajaj Pulsar 220 vs Yamaha R15 vs Hero Honda Karizma


yamaha_r15_pulsar_220

The premium biking segment in India is seeing some action. Though the action is far from what we would have liked to see. The recently launched Apache 180 is very promising but the new Pulsar 220 has taken everyone’s attention from TVS to Bajaj. Bajaj did feel the heat from other bike manufacturers had thus had no option but to pull something out of the box. They has priced the Pulsar 220 very well but will the new Pulsar 220 be the king of the performance biking segment?

bajaj_pulsar_220_performance_comparo

Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSi

For - Top speed, looks, price
Against - From the rear people might think your riding a Pulsar 180, quality, refinement
Verdict - Bajaj needs to differentiate its top end bike with other bikes from its segment, more power would have done wonders

Yamaha YZF-R15

For - Super handling, R1 tech, braking
Against - Small size, puny tires, price
Verdict - Yamaha could have given the R15 more power, racing kits on their way

Hero Honda Karizma R

For - Quality, service, reliability
Against - Other than new stickers this bike has not been updated since a long time now.
Verdict - Hero Honda need to get up and smell the coffee. They need to upgrade the Karizma with new features and more power.

Your performance bike is?

    1)the new 220 rocks …coz of its cost and power it gives and also it loooks more stylish this tym….
    2)whereas the r15 is too costly and doesnt have enough power ..even the karizma is better thn the r15…tyres suck a big time…
    3)karizma is a nice bike but it needs to be upgraded quickly..or else it will be thrown out of d competition….

    power was gone up , performance was superb. additional features like oil cooled and air cooled. the muffler part is awesome, I just bought a 220 and waiting for the second service 2000 – 2500kms, after the first service the performacne was much improved and getting agood milege around 35 – 40 on trafffice and on highways it go up to maximum of 43. Initially the rear disc break was not performing well but now it has iproved .The head lamp is very powerful and very useful at nigh rides.The center stand of the bike hit the road if ther is two pax, it should be upgraded, morever am satisfied with maa bike and PuLsAr 220 is really the fastest INDIAN and am proud to be a fastest INDIAN. 220 Rockzz!!!!!

    hai guys,
    i will surely gone with karizma r.Coz when we compared karizma with other bikes like 220,r15,apache karizma is the better one.i know 220have stunning bhp but no use.When we go for a long trip like more than 100km distance.engines of all bajaj bikes get over heated.that’s one problem .another one is chain and socket.It will damage quickly.And the main problem is itys model.Everybody knows that all the pulsar have same back peace.now pulsar 180 is also look like pulsar 200.By comparing bajaj pulsar.pulsar 200 is the best one in its series.Next is r15.No use.It have a great look.But no power,small cycle tyres,high price.actually r15 destroy the reputation of yamaha.i don’t like to say about r15.Then apache not at all good bike.But karizma best bike in its class.i know karizma have not much facility.karizma wants to upgarde.but everyone should understand one thing karizma was launched 5years before.even now there is no complaint in engine side.some people didn’t maintain the engine side thats why the engine gets collapse.by comparing mileage,style,riding comfort karizma is the better bike in its class
    KARIZMA………………………….MY STUNNING MACHINEEEEEEEEEEEE

    I have a 6 month old Bajaj Pulsar 220 dts-i.I think its the best performance bike in India.Truly the Fastest Indian.It looks smashing with new all black theme.Not much to say about the engine power of the bike,its the best in India.Similarities in looks between other pulsars is a issue though.But I think Bajaj should have kept the features like split sits,fatter 120/80-17 rear tyres,clip-on handlebar,grab handles exclusive for 220 model only.For the price of 80,500,its surely a best buy & value for money.
    Yamaha’ R15 is a nice bike.But i realy don’t like its looks.Specially the rear.But Yamaha says the rear tyre is specilly designed mrf zapper exclusive for r15 & the quality & durability of bike is great.Top end power delivery is nice.Feels great after 6000rpm.This bike is the best in 150cc segment.Its performance is great for a 1500cc & its unbeatable on race tracks.Its price is too high for a 150cc bike.Not a best buy.I don’t think its worth its 1 lac price.Though good efforts by Yamaha.
    As for Karizma,i think its only great touring bike.I agree its handling is best.This bike is for those who tour mostly.Sitting is best in class.But Hero Honda should give a new engine for bike.Even the ZMR’s engine is the same old 1st 2003 karizma engine with FI.Price is high too.I don’t like the looks of ZMR too.
    In my opinion,all three bikes have there pros & cons & have a great street presence.All these bikes are head turners on road.If you want only peformance with great looks go for Pulsar 220 dts-i.Most of the people buy R15 for its bigger sibling R1 derived looks.Zmr & Karizma R is only for those who are avid tourers & want great handling with nice performance.

    if u want power go for pulsar 220, but not stylish coz it’s common
    and if u want top speed range plus fuel efficiency go for karizma it’s true indian,…

    I used both Karizma R and Pulsar 220. Karizma is good for its performance and Pulsar 220 is for pick up and speed… So, its ur choice… While we have got TOP speed and all good features in these two bikes. Then, why should we go for ZMR and R15.

    R15 is the best. 150cc is the winner of the overall. It actually has the highest top speed which is 144kmp/h. Engine is reliable & Fuel efficiency is the best. Weights lesser than the others. Handling is unbeatable, but it has a skinny tyres which gives a nervous feeling. This international product would not be beaten up by the desy company.

    i hope people don’t get fooled by pulsar 220 being mentioned the fastest among the three…i have owned both pulsar 220 and r15 and would say r15 totally lies in a superior class….speed increment from 90kmph+ takes a lot more time in pulsar than in r15…r15′s handling is outdoes every indian bike…braking is tighter than pulsar 220…r15 is a lot easier bike to control than pulsar 220 when you’re at 75kmph+ speed…….bajaj mentions 144kmph to be pulsar 220′s topspeed….but i haven’t gained more than 132……while i’ve gained 154 kmph in r15 with a small engine modification [racing issue]….also bajaj keeps 220′s mileage at 30-35 kmph..whereas r15′s mileage is at 40-45kmph……..though slightly expensive…r15 is a lot lot better bike than the two…..and personally i think pulsar is better than karizma zmr..

    R15 has a top speed of 162kmph claimed by many .. some of my friends have both pulsar 220 and r15… they say pulsar 220 only goes upto 150kmph and it strains a lot but r15 = 162kmph (its a 150 cc engine) but there is another bike the apache rtr 180 which reaches 160+ speeds

    Hey guys who r supporting karizma r i’ll say them as dumb…bcause they r ppl with narrow minds.they’ll not understand what d style nd coolness is?no doubt that r15 is good but at too much cost they r offering very low specification thats why pulsar 220 is da best….i feel like a real duuuude while riding it….220f really rocks

    Hello Team,
    I am planning to go for a new bike.
    Yamaha R15 V2 or
    Pulsar 220.
    Can you suggest me which i should go for.
    All above reviews are about R15 but no mention of R15 V2 performance.
    Please suggest.
    My Criteria:
    Long Drives (500 ~1000 Kms) in a stretch
    Bit of Racing in City Traffics
    I prefer good Quality & Long Life of Bike

    faisal…..its obvious that 220 has more bhp and displacement.but on the other hand the yamaha r15 has the racing dna of yamaha and it has also been given the title of indias fastest spec on the road its a true sport class bike with better technology. so is r15 faster then 220?? i too own a yamaha r15 version 2.0 fiery red.

    Guys
    Looking for a second bike confused between P220 and KMR . mainly for small runs between 100 to 200 km not looking at The top speed factor but what’s more important is it’s reliability and longevity. Generally land up crushing between 80 to 100kmph on highways but this bike is mostly going to be used in the city what do you guys feel
    P220
    +price
    +cost of maintenance
    +mileage
    +projector headlights

    KMR
    + reliability
    + refinement
    + mature ride and handling
    + proven long distance crusier

    Your inputs would be valuable

    listen karizma may be good in its own place but r15 has much more acceleration and top speed than this it overheats on long because of agricultural aoir cooled engines agricultural karizma suits more in villages
