They could definitely launch the ZX-14 since Suzuki is launching the Hayabusa.

well don't know india specific man but i really don't hear of too many 12r's in india.
and since its production has been stopped you can't expect it to be launched anymore.
by the way off the topic.dude you ride rocks.its a simply beautiful piece of machine.great potential.check out the forums abroad.

your bike has secondary butterfly valves in the throttle body.these are activated by the ECU and do not open fully till 6000rpm.so basically your bike is choking till 6000 rpm.if you remove that and install a power commander with the specific map available on those forums you'll have arm ripping performance in the lower rev range.
try it if you have gotten used to the present power.

hey where did you do your schooling man.

well thanx for the tip dude. appreciate it. i'm on 2 international forums. one of which is 14R specific. Still Getting used to the microns & the boost from the new filters. Ordered a whole bunch of things, but the experiments start later in the year.
Did my schooling from Doon.
Cheers!!!

Picked up the bike magazine last weekend. It has a short test ride of the baby ninja. they are guessing it to be priced around 2l. Reading the article was fun waiting to ride it once it comes

Pushed to Dec - and possibly they'll launch in 09 straightaway :(
Teething operational issues. Thankfully for them Yam didn't launch a proper 200+, else their potential clientèle might've shrunk by 50% owing to no news, no buzz and long delays before the launch.
