    First of all u need to fix a budget. Once the budget is fix... you need to see which bike fits ur budget.

    Once u select the bikes (which is in ur price range) then go for the Bike's Milage as its important for Long distances. Once all this is done... plz go n check with garage or servicing people as they have a good idea in the performance of the bikes.If i was in ur place i would prefer a Hero Honda or Bajaj bike as their performance are good n maintenance is comparably low than other bikes. Most important is the performance of the bike which u gonna purchase so plz see to that how well will the bike be after 2-3 years. If ur a college going kid... you will surely go for style n colour, so its ur personal choice on it.But once ur done with ur young age, the only thing matters is Milage n performance.So all the best!!!

    The number one factor in buying a bike is comfort. Second is price to quality comparison. Third is performance. Last thing to consider is the look of it.

    That of course if for an intermediate or advanced level rider. if you are a newbie, just listen to everybody else and get an old cheap 250 or 500 to learn on then worry about the bike of your dreams.

    Skill level - I wouldn't recommend a high horse power sport bike for a novice rider. And an experienced rider may get bored on too small of bike

    Riding style - So may different bikes for different riding styles. Sport bikes, touring bikes, cruisers, standard, dual sport, dirt bikes, trials bikes, etc. Each made for a different riding style.

    Appearance - Goes along with the different style of bike.

    Price - Buy what you can afford.

    If you have never owned a bike before, I recommend something relatively small and used. No more than 500 CC. Not too old that it is junk.

    After you gain some experience and have decided your riding style, sell it and but the bike you want and can afford.

    Price/Budget

    Style: Cruiser, Touring, Sport Bike, On/offroad)

    Size: 250-400cc, 600-800cc, 1000+ cc

    Accessories (included or added) - windshield, saddlebags, backrest(s), cruising pegs/floorboards, custom pipes, performance upgrades, etc.

    Think about what kind of riding you are going to be doing, sport bikes are fast, but aren't very comfortable for longer trips. I have an 800cc Suzuki Boulevard C50 that is really comfortable, fast enough for me, and easy to maintain because it has shaft drive, fuel injection, and it's liquid cooled.

    Plus it looks good!! And it didn't cost me an arm and a leg (only a foot, and maybe part of my shin...)
