Please also post pics of the manual for us (atleast me) to have a feel of how the manual of such imported bikes look like

Just enquired at the dealership in mumbai

On road price is around 3,03,000. With a Dp of 1 lakh, the EMI comes to Rs. 8340 over a tenure of 3 yrs. There is no option for a 5 yr loan. A ridiculous 13.75 % ROI. There goes my Ninja..and soon will come my R15..

Wow thats a cool 1L more over 3 years. Doesnt make any sense going in for EMI's (atleast not to me).

With a heavy heart, the baby ninja is still at some distance (money). A daytoned R15 seems like the perfect tool in the given circumstances to help me cover that distance.
Congrats whoevers bought it. Its one of the best decisions they've taken.

I'd not say about the 60kmph but 4000rpm is very much the correct run in rpm.this was the rpm that was suggested even with my zx-12r.so west better keep within this rpm for a long trouble free engine life.

By the way the bike looks awesome in the kawa's own green colour.

Ok, had a talk with chief maechanic, Bajaj asked him to meet me personally, for more information on the bike.. How abt that.. At last I could see some thing in india like this.. Waw.. in a week they called me 4 times for my review.

Run in time is there 0-800 - 1st
800-1200 -2nd
First service due at 1000kms

DO NOT CROSS 4000..oh........But I did cross 9000 couple of times and got really scared, since its accelerating like a cheetah.. Wow what a bike.

FORE PLAY STARTS AT 4000
FUN STARTS FROM 8000

I was not able to wait till the run-in on my Pulsar 150, I know how it will be with a baby Ninja. Do keep your cool and don't rip her before 1200Kms.

Seriously bro!

Don't blow it.

If you want, I can keep it till it hits 1200 kms. Then you can rip it. Frankly I would be blessed to drive it around under 4k too.

Great buy! Congratulations.

We Indians can never stop, can we?

Congrats West!! It is a great bike. Looking forward to updates and pictures as you discover more about the bike.

I wish there are roads in bangalore where it can be taken out regularly.

Congrats! Looks good.
Good thing they are giving imported tires too. Are there any stickers that show if the bike is assembled in Thailand?

Use a magnet to check. Most likely its steel or Al. Even R1s are Al. Swingarm pivots are CNC machined.

He he at this rate he would give us a review after 6 months, come on @west my man get on with it. If you need some help in covering those 1200 kms asap, I'm sure there would be many many T-bhpains to help.

Me too, I didn't give rats *** to the run in for my 180cc DTSi and ripped it all the way. The result, it has a totally different exhaust sound, that of fried piston rings and cracked cylinders . Heck, people who ride it still swear by it.
