They don't even have the plans for it. Besides, power/torque is not a really issue with current Gurkha. The OM611 would make Gurkha as expensive as 4x4 Safari.

Well the price difference would be approximately around 2.13 Lacs.

Both Ex-showroom U.P

Safari DICOR 2.2 Ex 4x4 = Rs. 993,294 (base model where 4x4 starts)
Gurkha = Rs 780000

For me this amount is not peanut sir.

It used to belong to Vikram from Patiala. Now it is in Hands of Dr. Das, based in Kalyani.

Nahin Samurai. It is for hard top, with a/c, and PS, and diff. locks. Thats what I paid for mine. My bill is attached in my Gurkha's review thread. Soft top model is almost 1.5 lacs cheaper. The issue is though they are not selling soft top.

No. He is Dr. Arup. Send me a PM, I will give you his contact number. He has one of the oldest Gurkha in India. I have been fortunate enough to drive his Gurkha while he was in Mohali as well as in kalyani. He is the one instrumental for me to buy Gurkha, and I do not regret it.

That's old price, you don't get that any more.

PS: Good to see 1000th post was made by a Gurkha owner.

^^ still you do not expect the price of Gurkha raised by 2.15 lacs. This would mean I can sell my Gurkha at the price I bought!!

Thanks to bringing to attention that 1000th post was by me!! It was a nice co-incidence.

Gurkha Ex Showroom price: 8,15,830/- in Baroda no Discount
Safari EX Exshowroom price: 9,91,000/- in Baroda + Discount up to 60 K.

Looking at the difference between price, spec. & features offered according to me Safari is much more better deal compared to Gurkha.

Bharat stage II is about to discontinue and it seems OM 611 with G 32 GB should come in to reality by March 2010 or so.
