I still remember the day I had bought my first bike in the year 2006 – Bajaj Pulsar 150 cc. Before purchasing it, I did a lot of research on the internet. I shortlisted the best bikes in India along with their prices and mileage. In the year 2006, Pulsar 150 cc and Hero Honda CBZ were two of the most famous two wheelers in India. Hence, both of them were at no 1 and no two spots on my list.
As I liked the looks of Pulsar and the fact that it gave a better mileage than most of the bikes, I purchased it.
