Wink Bajaj's Pro Biking Showrooms

Today had a chance to visit Bajajs probiking showroom and must admit they are amazing. The place has been very well setup and the most important bit of it is the Digital Test Ride.

The Test Ride was fun. The bike is on a Dyno. I test Rode the all new Black 180DTSi and boy it was fun ripping her. I pulled the bike to the max in each gear and reached a maximum of 110kmph. I will put the pics soon.

I inquired about the 220DTSFI they said it will be here by March 2007 although it has been launched in Pune [The sales guys wordings)

Mods such a thread already exsists then please merge it with the original. Thanks.

^^its indeed a roller bench,dynos are expensive and owned by arai and top racers in our country.

Are those 'hung-up' bikes for sale too?will those front wheel simply bend due to excessive weight?

yea , initially there was talk that it was gonna be a dyno , but taking into account the setup cost , m guessing the PB showrooms just have roller benches .

well , they seem to be well supported at the base so i dont think theres a question about the wheel bending .

the PB showroom ( the benches , the display , the whole shebang ! ) . . Its all just a gimmick to attract people . .
but its a fresh change and a welcome one at that !
i personally liked the whole setup . .

cheers

liked the concept of the dyno's that hey have introduced... one thing Why are they hanging the bikes? i cant understand. Hang the engines instead that would be better.
