Default Fuel injected Bikes from Hero Honda

Hero Honda is to launch a 125 cc fuel injected bike called Glamour FI next month. Apart from this, they look forward to 8 bikes in the next one year.

Can we look forward to some great bikes or is this gonna be another splendour Fuel injected clone?

if we want high performance bike, then get ready to pay BOMB----because each technical updates cost bomb that's why we are unable to buy SUPERBIKES .......even bajaj pulsar 2XX fuel injected bike will cost 80-95,000 rs.

80-95K is a reasonable price. Even the Thunderbird costs that much. If people can buy a bike like Tbird for 90K, A high perfomance, cool looking bike for that kind of money is great.

Well, the new breed of "performance" bikes in the 250cc+ range is expected to be reasonably priced; From what I've heard, the Yamaha 250 is going to be priced below the 90K region, the HH 350 is gonna be around 1.3, the Bajaj 225 is gonna be around 85-90k, etc...and although these are from reliable sources, only time will tell..

The Glamour FI did come, so did the Fuel injected R15 , saw the news about Honda Launching it's CBF Stunner with a Fi of the same mill with an unrealistic price tag. We are going no where.

And about the prices of the bikes, just check what the price of these bikes are abroad and see if we are getting a bad deal.

where did i speak of a bad deal. i'm laughing at the optimism of getting a 250 for under 90k and a 350 for 1.3L! it's like expecting a 1.8L sedan at the price of a santro.
