Yes, used to be those earlier. Honda is using 'Tokico' on the new CBR's.

FYI, the Nissin's are " made in Japan " as i have seen it printed on packs. The pads do make a huge difference in the braking along with good tyres.

Manufacturers normally quote dry weight only. P220 and ZMA both are upwards of 150 KGS dry, so the difference remains the same, kerb or dry.

Again, anything foren is better syndrome. Pulsar brakes equally good if not better and the brake pads cost less than Rs. 150!

17 PS for 120 kg v/s 20 PS for 150 kg. Does it look all that conclusive? Not to me at least.

There is lot of differnce in the fiber compounds on the pads by different manufactures. The better quality ones provide higher coefficient of friction which resists fading and reduces stopping distances. I have seen inferior pads chipping from the sides after frequest heavy usage.

1) 17 ps for 120kg = 141.6667PS / ton.
2) 20PS for 150kg = 133.3334PS / ton.

17PS is winner as far as on paper maths is concerned!

Saw the bike reviewd on the Car and Bike show on CNBC, din't like what I saw, the tyres look too thin, and the person riding for some reason don't look too comfortable, the bike looks a little out of propotion for some reason, big body, small engine, thin tyres and I'm sure it's not too fast either. Personally I woun't put my money on the same, but that is just my opinion.

I meant big body for the engine size and the Type size the bike has, the body on the bike looks fit for a 250+ cc engine, which can manage atleast 22+ bhp.

Looks like again people are expecting fat tyre, big looking, fuel efficient bike sorry but this is not ment for those who are expecting these features.
Its just a fast and true sports bike atleast for India, does anyone has all these features in single bike?Liqued cooling, Fuel injection, rear disc breaks, full fairing, 6 speed transmission.
And please dont say that i'll buy P220 or Karizam rather than R15 just for bigger looks and fatter tyres.

Yeah but they are just brake pads.... arent they and they arent motogp or wbk spec?
The pulsar one's that I gave as an example are OEM from KBX which is a brembo design.

On the contrary, it looks smaller than unicorn, hunk or pulsar150 to me.

You are right, it's looks much smaller than the existing bike on our roads.

I just don't find the bike proposinate on the whole, it looks like a local customization, and I feel it's over pricesed as well.

Can someone describe the benefits of LC and doesn't P220 or ZMA come with rear discs? And, if i am not wrong, FI was first introduced in India by HH
