Congrats mate. Baby Ceeber is quite good looking, and all those accessories make the man and the machine: one.

Liked your Vega helmet, i never knew they were inexpensive (always thought they are 4K+).


Jewelery is to women what Helmet/Gloves/etc are to men. Even i enjoy putting em on for that 12 min commute between work and stay on my 0cc HPV.

Is there anyway we can highlight this issue to Honda so they can take apt action against the supplier and/or with the supplies ?

.
They are actually 1500 only, 150 is for the visor which is optional. There is a matt finish peice in full black (slightly more expensive) which also looks quite good.

Thanks a lot buddy, will let you know when I get there.

About munching miles, lets plan a combined ride someday (ISODOPE- Ninja, our two CBR's, and anyone else who would like to join)

Congrats!!

The review is nice - short and crisp.

CBR looks great in red. By considering the attention my Black CBR is getting on road, I can imagine the plight of Red. It is very annoying when cars/ bikes come very near the bike to see the bike closely.

On my long ride this Sunday, one decked up Lancer pushed me on the side of the road blocking my path, rolled down the windows and asked me - how much price and cc? When I said 250, he wagged his head sideways with a Diarrhea expression and zoomed away

Congrats Salunkhe on the baby ceeber, did not quite understand the jugad you did for the delivery, does this mean that the bike shall be registered on your friends name or how is it?
Good Stuff that you got there in terms of the safety kit, nice to see that we Indians are now paying for taking care of ourselves

Well, I bought it on the name of a guy I met just a few days before on Team-BHP - quite a risky proposition for the common person. Imagine my dads reaction when I told him I bought it on the name of a guy I met online. It is still on his name right now, will transfer it to my name once I get RC book for this current number. Its a different district, so the number will change as well.

Having said that, I want to thank the site for giving me a wonderful new friend who has re-introduced me to the world of biking and a lot of related nuances. We meet almost every weekend now for something or the other related to the bike (rides/accessories)

vizz would suggest you to send emails to the management people Chairman, Managing Director, Board of Directors and also send a hard copy of your letter directly to the Chairman by name by speed post.You will for sure get his name in the HMSL website.
If there is a different Managing Director you can also send a letter to him by name.
You can also send a CD with pictures of the particular rusted components, as Mumbai's coastal weather should be a testing ground for the Honda bikes.

He is going to murder you on one of these meets and take the bike for himself

Honda already knows about the problem, but the more letters they receive from owners, the more they'll be driven to rectify the problem soon. Please do send them letters.

It certainly is worth killing for - but not if one already has a Ninja 250 and R15

And Vishal, it's been my pleasure.

Major reason why I cancelled this bike even though the torque and BHP shows higher than the other bikes.
