Is any other manufacturer planning to launch a direct competitor to the Ninja 250 in the near future (I dont consider bikes like the R15 competitors to the N250 - diff pedigree altogether).

I sincerely hope they can keep it within 2L. If I consider one, it would purely be a weekend / monthly indulgence. I'm sure there'll be lots of similar potential owners like me who can be tapped up to a certain price point but not beyond since its more an indulgence than a requirement for several prospective buyers. Anyway, I guess only the coming months will tell.

I am tired of these rumors about the baby ninja.They keep disappointing me. I think its better to forget about the rumors and get surprised by the launch news one fine day.

As per the information from a guy working at Bajaj. It will be launched in the next two months. Let's hope its true

PS: mahindra should learn and launch the comet and Aquila officially in India.

I am hoping this is true, but, I have been excited so many times on news that turns doesnt materialize that I will only believe it when it is launched, Formally and is available for sale.

Atleast things seem to be moving now.Finally 'expect' to see the bike launched formally in the next few months. This is one interesting bike,and it'll surely change motorcycling in India.

Well some more pictures from the Pune ProBiking. Thanks to Satya @ xBhp. Pictures and his words below. Like Dev said it will be launched in two months time - that's a bingo!

OK guys! I have good news and bad news.

Good news is that the Ninja is not altered in power and performance aspect. It is definitely bigger than the 220. Much wider fairing. It is also much lower than 220. It looks good indeed! It has IRC tyres. Most probably 110 front and 140-150 rear. Silencer is different from the pics that we have seen till date. Overall a very international looking bike! If i had the money, i would buy the bike right away.

Bad news is the bike was kept only to see the space it occupies in showroom! The higher officials from Bajaj were there. The showroom was being prepared for the bike. And it was only there to test the display capability of the showroom. While leaving the showroom,the bike was taken away! The sale starts only after two months.No bookings whatsoever. No official price is disclosed yet. But it is very much likely to be in 2.5-3.10L range. The person there was not informed about anything! I think the advertising team was there. I managed to click some photos. But the officials were angry. I did not take any further chance.In the second pic you can see the person walking towards me!

The beats are increasing now, unlike the bank balance.
I think i would beg, steal or borrow for this (get a loan done actually).
Diwali launch (typically bajaj).
A whole new defination to the fastest Indian (if its a CKD, which it is)
GOD, please give the strength.
