I intend to buy a new bike for myself for commuting from home to office. I am looking for a bike which will be comfortable and stable for long-distance journeys, as I will be going home every weekend and that's about 110km from my workplace. My budget is Rs 1 lakh. I am quite keen on the new Yamaha FZ version 2.0 as it looks sporty and stylish. Please let me know if there are any other bikes which could be a better option.

AAA The Yamaha FZ Version 2.0 is a capable motorcycle. However, in our tests Suzuki's Gixxer has proved to be better on just about every parameter. The Gixxer instills plenty of confidence and is comfortable for clocking kilometres at a good pace. The only area where the Gixxer trails slightly is in terms of fuel efficiency.
