^an FZ 16 ? thats an insane comparison . Ninja 250 is one of the best 250cc bikes in the world and if bajaj does not localize some parts the price be upwards of 3 lacs . and what will they localize ? some pastic parts ? its not like the fairing will fall off after hitting a bump ! and talking about quality take a look at hero honda's plastics . all the karizma's running in india are surviving on plastic welding i bet .

sorry for going a bit off topic but if bajaj wont bring a good V-twin 250 in india . no one will .

Not a comparison! Just my choice! And I do feel Hondas Plastics last longer than a Bajaj on the whole ! Hmmm are you sure the 250R is a V- twin?

Dear YC_Baleno,
"if bajaj wont bring a good V-twin 250 in india . no one will ."
I hope you are wrong for competitions sake.
I dream of Yamaha doing a twin-----same parts as in use in the R15, just shorten the bore,bigger rubber etc.
What with localised parts price should be lower and.........poof, Bajaj has no market for the Ninja.

do you think yamaha will care to take a risk and build an india specific bike ?

and the R15 . the engine is already a bored out 135cc step thru . no further comments on this .

and please note my mistake its a parallel twin . sorry for my ignorance .

what is for sure is that the Ninja will set the benchmark for the best performance, style and value this side of the official superbikes available in India. Atleast in other countries it does when compared to the other 250's in the market. Im sure other manufacturers will follow suite but that will take a loong time!

wholeheartedly disagree.... Hero Honda plastic quality is rubbish! Bajaj is a whole lot better.

I own a 2006 Karizma and a 2007 pulsar 180 . who can be a better judge ?

anyways we are going off topic .
About the ninja i dont care even if the plastic quality is bad as long as it stays on the bike when its going at 150kmph .

cant wait to hit 100 under 6.5 secs . other people who "assume" they dont like the plastics can take 15 secs , its their wish

15 secs it is then mate! But seriously I never had anything against the 250, It was just loud thinkin, and Ive been waitin for it too. But still its a no no if it ends up too much of a Bajaj, just a personal pref mate. To each his own, if you believe that?~!
