I checked out the bike in the Koramangala showroom yesterday. Looks nice and big. Definetely justifies the price going by the looks, build quality and the reviews of people who have ridden it. The dealer says that the top speed is 145kmph, not sure if it really does.

Yeah the mudguard and the saree guard sure looks out of place. The mudguard looks a bit longish. Maybe you get it cut it a bit at the cost of spraying muck on the people following you.

Guys, does any of you have any clue about the autocop locking systems, remote starter etc and what about this teflon coating , waxing etc?.Does it do any harm to the bike? Also the bike is having its lisc plate on the visor which looks quite yucK!.Planning to get the lisc number printed on to the visor after removing the plate.

I would prefer it on the mudguard. That way visor will be free for printing '46'

Congrads Veelubai, waiting for the first ownership pics.

Almost all SBKs paint it on the Front mudgaurd. Depends on how strict your cops are.

If this comes with a Sari guard please remove it even before you take it out of the showroom. I think they even sell the R1 with a sari gaurd.

Please avoid the bike security system. I personally think its a weird out of place accessory.
