I thought the colour suits Micra well & is pleasant on the eye compared to Figo/Beat green which blinds you in sunlight.

^^You should see the pink cousin of this Innova, that will make this look subtle.

IIRC she has already been documented here.

Nope, it's not. I don't think that's an Indian bike at all; look at the handlebar (and other parts).

Wow this guy must be a huge fan of AVP movie ( alien versus predators ) but if he has to brake suddenly looks like he might get decapitated by the aliens hair.

Lol this is a fantastic bike, AVP franchisee's might want to incorporate it in their future movies

Here's one Amby which was seen in HSR.

I am pretty sure that this Amby minus that thing,which is trying to pose as spoiler, with those deep dish gypsy rims pained in white colored can be termed as good looking car.

Are these gypsy rims direct fit on ambys? do these cars share the same wheel PCD?

not sure of the Amby (should be 100 plus for sure), but Gypsy has a PCD somewhere around 139 IIRC.

Yes, Gypsy rims are a direct fit on Ambassadors - ever since the Ambassador Nova replaced the old Mark 4. I don't know the PCD, but the revised braking system on the Amby Nova included new drums and hubs that could accommodate Gypsy steel rims.

It was a huge craze in the 90's, as pointed out by @IronH4WK. I got them fitted to my grandfather's Ambassador as well. They look really good on an Amby.

p.s. -> Notice the twin exhaust on the Amby?

Small world indeed! I saw this Safari at work last Friday (Unitech World Cyberpark, Jharsa). From the second floor looked pretty ok (no way knowing about the sticker if you are on the same level as the car).

That car has host of mods, which can be seen on the outside:

1. The rims
2. Spoiler
3. Civic OVRM (Which are incident electrical foldable as well)
4. Twin exhaust
5. Pull type handle bar (aka Manza type)
