    The modest top speed is a good thing, because the Quanto’s high-speed handling doesn’t inspire confidence. The top-heavy SUV tends to rock and never feels settled. The steering, which isn’t exactly bristling with feel or accuracy, doesn’t help either. Grip levels are pretty good, but that only accentuates the excessive body roll which, along with the tendency to pitch on an uneven surface, makes the Quanto a bit of a handful on any road that isn’t smooth and straight.

    In the city, the Quanto is much better behaved. The ride is still fidgety and never feels settled, but the way it tackles potholes and bumps is quite impressive. The suspension works quietly and insulates the cabin from road shock and, at low speeds, the ride is quite comfy. Factor in the Quanto’s compact footprint and high seating position, and you get a vehicle that is well suited to the daily urban grind.

    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.
