    Mahindra Scorpio N has been a popular choice among buyers ever since it was launched nearly a year ago. For a long time, Mahindra has been facing supply chain issues leading to extended waiting periods. However, the carmaker has recently been working on ramping up production of the Scorpio N along with the XUV700 and Thar, and it now shows as the waiting periods for the Scorpio N are on a steady decline. Though the waiting period has reduced considerably, it still stretches to over a year, depending on the variant.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
