Aviator eh!? I saw the thread and was hoping something on the lines of the 250cc plus bike.

Guys these manufacturers just talk, lets make our own high powered bike

Huh! Honda still hasn't come up with a competitor for 125 cc Flyte and Access. Shame.

And add a green filter too.

I think Honda should focus on making the Unicorn better and give it some more features, since the whole competition is having all that and more.

well check my photogallery!

couldnt wait longer so bought a unicorn and made it look like a TWISTER, its only cosmetic change though!, couldnt even do the stageII mods the bike is already well made, and couldnt mod it further! hope to see more powerful bikes from hmsi's stable soon though!

Same old engine isn't it? Meh, the new Bajaj Blade Dtsi is better than this thing!

Looks like fuel injection will take even more time to trickle down.

i think its disappointing too. looks like hmsi just doesnt want to put in much effort for india. first of all they ignore dealership issues like bad attitude towards customer service, overcharging etc.
then they launch things like this
