Wants to upgrade from his current Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTS-i.
Can you throw some light as to when Yamaha tentatively plans to launch a 250cc bike in India?
Also, I am considering upgrading my bike from a Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTS-i. I have test-ridden the Honda CBR250R, KTM 200 Duke and the Yamaha YZF-R15 V 2.0. I have mixed feelings about all three motorcycles.
My requirements centre around:
Comfortable for daily use and the occasional long ride
Good handling on the highway
I don’t ride on a track so good cornering ability is not a concern
Could you suggest a bike in the current market or would you prefer I wait a little longer?

AAA We don’t have any confirmation from Yamaha regarding a 250cc bike launching in the near future, and so we can’t give you any further information on that front. Given your biking requirements, we suggest you go ahead without waiting and pick up the KTM 200 Duke.
