Hi,
Currently there are lot of 150 CC bikes available with price tag rangeing from 55 to 1.15 lac onroad for Yamaha R15.
Considering the price range of 60K Bajaj Pulsar 150 CC would make a good selection for its power,performance and style.Maintenance of Pulsar would e around 4 to 5K first year and depending uponusage and pop up of repairs like clutch plate replacement due to excessive wearout etc.

You have a lot of choice in the 150 cc segment. It all depends upon your selection criteria. I had recently checked out most of the bikes in the 150 CC segment and the following is my conclusion:

Most comfortable bike for city driving (commuter seating position) - Honda Unicorn, Suzuki GS150R and HH Hunk

Most powerfull bike - 1. Yamaha R15 (Racing seating position) 2. TVS Apache 160 3.Yamaha FZ16, Fazer 4.Pulsar 150 5. HH CBZ Extreme.

The most stylish in the segment would be the Fazer for its looks and the most fuel-efficient would be the Unicorn and Pulsar. By and large the Hero-Honda, Honda and Bajaj bikes should have lower maintenence than the Yamaha bikes. But all the bikes mentioned here are quite good in their own way.

The R-15 is the costliest at 1.1 lakh and Unicorn the cheapest at 66 thousand. Now that you have a broad idea of all bikes, Your best bet would be first decide your evaluation criteria and then test ride the vehicles and take your choic.
