Default Has the Yamaha Gladiator hit the showrooms?

I heard from someone that the Yamaha Gladiator has been launche in Pune. Is it so?

If so, has anybody ridden it? Has it been launched anywhere else? (Delhi, Bangalore...). We dont have even a whiff of it here in Mumbai yet.

waiting for the gladiator is a good idea. but even going for a unicorn right now will be ok. the reasons is gladiator will be sporting a premium when it enters the market and buying a unicorn now gets you the value now and you wont have to wait.

depends on how early u need a bike

according to me the better option would be to wait.

Gladiator is a concept. It would be too costly to make it ( for eg. how much would a projector light cost!)

Unicorn is a good buy. Checked out Apache?

coorect me if im wrong, the 125cc gladiator will be releaseing this month.
150 cc , im guessing it will come out agter 3 to 4 moths after 125cc release.
Its definately worth the wait.
Also pricing i think will be 60 to 68k.

guys yamaha has done it again and let it self down by just giving another executive commuter with modifications on fazer rather than sticking with the original Gladiator - arent they digging their own grave in india why cant they atleast match up with p 150 /180 or U150 or Apache wake up yamaha ar u trying to close down ops in india
