I still remember the day I had bought my first 150cc bike – Bajaj Pulsar 150 cc. Before purchasing it, I did a lot of research on the internet because I was confused that time as you’re right now.

I shortlisted the best mileage bike in India (150cc segment) that were within my budget. 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 number one and 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.

    Fuel economy- 42 to 45 know

  21. Hrishi

    Hey pramod i have read you articles that you have written. Pulsars are now outdated I know they used to rule the road but the time moved on. The r15 is whole way in another category. Yeah it has 150cc engine but it fits in high performance bikes and you are talking about mid-performance bikes. And the best bike 150 cc range is suzuki gixxer after that the Honda hornet after Yamaha fz v2.0.

  22. vaibhav jain


    I visited Yamaha and Honda showroom as i was looking to buy a new 150 cc bike.. i took test ride of Honda hornet and FZ version 2 ..

    I liked FZ more in compare to Hornet, as its looks is more attractive.. But it seems that Yamaha FZ ‘s mileage is least as compare to Hornet and Suzuki Gixer.
    still i did’nt visit suzuki showrooom for gixer. Today morning i came to know through your article that gixer is very tough competitor of yamaha and honda..
    Please guide which bike will be more suitable in all aspects.
    Can you please specify the mileage of all 3 bikes i.e. gixer , fz and hornet.

    • Yes, Gixxer is in a good demand. Some readers had recommended me to add gixxer to the list. I haven’t used gixxer, fz ii and hornet, but my friends use it. Gixxxer and fz ii offers mileage within 41 to 44 KMPL. On a smooth road i.e. highway, the mileage may be better. Visit a nearby showroom and take a test drive of Gixxer to know how this bike performs.
