Hey NC, any pics of that DuPont Karizma. It looked as if needed a better paint than that. I cant understand how these guys can display a Dupont painted bike without even washing/polishing the bike. The paint quality was good but the bike didnt have any shine at all.

No V12 ,wasnt really impressed with the shine and you are spot on about displaying the vehicles without washing or polishing.

And did you notice the interior / dash of the Ashok Leyland truck ?? the least they could have done was fix up everything properly the speedo glass cover was loose there was a huge gap where the stereo was removed the gear knob was twisted sideways !!!

Take a look at this pic closely, its the fuel tank lid of the LML Beamer .....zoom in and u will find what im trying to say......the least these guys can do is make sure the display vehicles are properly maintained !!!

The LML Beamer fuel tank lid



And the Comet weld job as u pointed out was no great shakes either. for a 1.75L bike the least we can expect is better quality maan.

cheers

I think that is more of a runabout vehicle. it wasnt inside the main hall but ...was parked outside ...

ya GTO, the pickup wasnt part of the Auto Show. It was parked outside. Indiacar cars were very clean and polished. Even the vintage cars were quite dirty except for the Clipper.

Yup, the welds on the Comet are shabby to say the least. I pointed that out after my first look at the bike in the showroom the previous week.

From what I've heard on the Comet forum (yes there is one!!), Hyosung has taken this matter on and I believe they've got some new machines for this. I hope the final customer pieces which end up here in Feb are improved.

However, while this is the most expensive bike in India, we have to remember that it is one of the Cheapest bikes in other markets in the world. Just a thought to take into consideration.

Hey NC, the stereo was very much present in the morning when my bro took a pic. Probably someone stole it Check this pic : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/iipcache/1687.jpg
