if price <= 2.5L:
----Sell_R15()
----Buy_Ninja()
else:
----Drool() #

Glad to hear Bajaj is localizing a lot of components to bring down the price.

I think there is always a price point for a product to sell when we talk about bikes and cars (minus Honda). If fully faired R15 which is a soundly engineered bike costs 1 lac, how can a Kawasaki Ninja Charge more than 2 under any conditions?

Ninja is not a soundly engineered bike ?

R15 is a tad bit overpriced .
2L ex showroom for Ninja is just right . maintains the exclusivity factor . im buying one the day it hits indian roads .

1. Ninja is a Soundly engineered bike. But it doesnt count without the H badge.(pun intended)

2. My thoughts exactly for the rest of your post.

2.25 is just great! Do you have the link to the source of this info ? It'll make a good reading. Looks like Bajaj has gone for the volumes game and some wee bit of profit. If this is true then BAL have heard out the wishes of its customers, late though, but not never.

No offence to you mate but I'll believe it when I see it.
Have been through many disappointments and deferred launch dates.

But I sincerely hope that its get launched during Diwali.

Well Zigwheels also says it'll be priced at 2 Lacs: Bajaj KTM and Ninja 250 Launch Plans- TwoWheelers-Zigwheels But I am kinda doubtful ... I am afraid it'll come close to 3L. Anyway I'll start saving money now for the initial downpayment.

Quoting from the article:

Quote:
is touted to have a price tag of over Rs 2 lakh at the time of launch.
Words like touted and over do not inspire confidence.

I'm eagerly awaiting for the release. Although I'm not an avid biker, i do enjoy riding. Planning to pick up the 250-R when it's launched.

Do you think they will have a bike to test ride? I hope they do.

Is the bike gonna be assembled here or fully imported as a single piece, or some parts gonna be manufactured locally to keep prices in check?

Did see a few video's but was not too impressed with the sound of the bike in stock form. But is a great handler and a sweet lookin bike (resembles the 600 a lot) and would do good numbers IMO.

Now to just wait and watch.

The reason why the bike is delayed is cause bajaj is trying to cut down the price by localizing some parts. Im sure they will have a test ride bike..even the comet did..Towards the redline, even the stock can sounds good and in anycase one always has the aftermarket options.

The lower the price, the more painful it is. Cause I still won't be able to afford it
