The bike is expensive as the localisation is less. I think the plus point here is that the quality would be better than a typical Indian/ Bajaj bike.

Good quality is definitely important for people like me who gets attached to their vehicles and would like to keep it for a lifetime. Quality comes at a price in India with all the taxes and duties we have. I do not think it would be fair to blame Bajaj if they price it around 3 lakhs.

3 lacs is not worth it. and i dont like the headlight assembly. pulsar 220 has better headlights frame. even the R15 looks stunning with the twin headlamps design. wide and daring!!

Hyosung comet was priced at 1.5 lacs. Bajaj can easily beat that price plainly on the economies of scale. Considering the brand premium they may commend, the price as I have mentioned many times before wont be more than 1.7 under any circumstances (initials 1-2 months not considering)

It certainly will be priced above 2.50 lakhs for sure. Nothing less.

The comet was never 1.5 lacs...On road the price went a little above 1.90 lacs. There is no question of the Ninja coming for under 1.7 lakh. Expect an easy 2.7 lakh on road price. The comet was a cheap Korean made bike compared to the way technologically superior Ninja thus pricng of the two cannot be compared.

Comet was for 1.67 lakhs ex showroom
and cheap no way,you have to ride one,then you will know
for a Vtwin oil cooled with 27 odd bhp(30 without Cat con) it does perform very well,reaching 100 in spp 9 secs

and regarding the ninja its an Inline twin with 33 horses
and 0-100 in less than 7 seconds with a true top whack of 160+ km\hr.so price is justified if it comes as a CBU

Cheap it definitely was. Most cycle parts were utterly cheap and the bike had reliability issue galore. Ridden it more than enough to back what i said. Performance wise it was decent for a 250.

Well for lesser mortals like me I hope they have finance options available when the bike is out.

It was an used RD 350 in 1992, then a RX100 in '94 and Enfield 350 in 96 till 2002 when I switched to 4 wheels for fundrives as well as commuting. But have always been yearning for an affordable twin. Request you all to keep it updated about the launch as I have been eagerly waiting for this bike since long to upgrade from pulsar 180 (2002 ). Many a times been tempted by Pulsar DTSi, R15, new 220 and every time to restrain my urges, I visit this thread and pacify myself. Any concrete info on the price will be helpful as me too will need to arrange for funds but have saved enough over years for this bike so I can justify this splurge. Feel so good to read the posts of fellow bhpians here which assures me that I am not the only nutcase ( no offence meant) around here. All those who are waiting, add me too in your list and please update when you go for a dekko or booking.

I am riding one these days
the bike went through a crash 2 weeks ago,along with a Karizma(i own this one too).though Karizma was battered beyond recognition
but comet's plastics withstood impacts easily and it came out in a rideable condition with just a few scratches.
I havent come across any reliability issues,though tuning those carbs is not everyone's cup of tea.
and the bike has gone through its share of offroading too,and she didnt miss a beatand not a rattle or squeak to speak of

Akshay no one can promise which bike will last longer in a crash. I only hope the spares and service of the ninja meets the expectations. I dont plan to crash my bike but no one can predict life, can one ? My fav Mod and biker is watching us from up there.Need I say more?
