And if I had that kind of dosh I would go for a Ducati 1098 what would attract more eyes on the road? - a 500 or a Ducati !!!

Since when did Ducati 1098 came for 15 lakhs?
Besides to a layman on the road Yamaha R1 and Ducati 1098 are the same so why go even as far as 1098.
A car is a car and cant be replaced by a bike and vice versa.

Well in all honesty I dont really know the price of 1098 but it surely looks smashing. I thought most superbikes in India were in 10-15lakh range... Is it more expensive than that?
And in any case if somebody is throwing 15 lakhs for 500 he can just make way for few more lakhs and get a 1098. Whats teh problem with that...

And I think a car can be replaced by a bike but other way is not true hehe

Few anxious moments before I realized the quote was in Millions!

When you quote in Rs., the comas are better done for the lakh and crores.

I posted this image on the wrong thread and it got deleted. Here, it may be more appropriate:

Default Fiat 500...Why so costly???

Dear friends,

I was just surfing the web and happened to check Fiat India website.The ex-showroom price in Pune of new single door car " Fiat 500" is 14.95L

Small car priced so high...and I have not seen a single car on the road neither there is any discussion thread on Team-Bhp website about this car..I don't understand the reason for such a high price..

Please enlighten me...

Honda is able to sell its overpriced Civic Hybrid but Indian are not that fool as FIAT guys think. For 14+ I expect at least big roaring engine but this one doesnt qualify in any segments except for looks.

Did you guys know that Fiat India has actually taken the efforts to design a website exclusively for the Indian Fiat 500? I didn't know about this! You can design your own 500 too on that website.
