Dude, dont spend your time and money on making it a look alike of some super bike. Just save up and buy a decent 400cc bike/600cc bike. I have seen people roaming on these so called modified bikes and gettin beaten by gals on activa! Just stick to engine modifications on your ZMA.

Even after that if a tiny RX guy overtakes you then?
Try to do perfomance mod instead of cosmatic's.
I preffer Big engine under small bike instead of big bike with small engine.

Ajay, lets not disregard the fact that looks are often more important for quite a few, most in our country.

Joello8, browse the following thread, http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...only-here.html you could find som good ideas there.
And, lookup xbhp.com, they have loads of modified bikes aboard, some good ones amongst them too.

manson.

i had seen a pulsar 150 with an r6 type body. it looked ugly, it sounded bad, it was expensive, it looked cheap and the bike had a top speed of 70 and a mileage of 20.

the owner seemed proud of it though...

Dude Joel, modifying a stock bike to look like a r1 or r6 is a sheer waste. You want to spend half a lakh rupees for that? With 50K you can get a well maintained RD350 or a Karizma or Pulsar 180. Keep it clean and working at its best. To look hip take a bath and go to any of those unisexual saloons they will make you look better. No offense man, but in the name of modification i have seen some really good bikes getting wasted.

Also over time all the shakes and rattles that will become a pain will kill your feel good feeling.
