Would like to have Karizma ... But love to own LC RD 350 and ultimate would be to own R1.

Since the old Machismo is not here, I'll vote for the Bullet 350 Electra. It's possibly the most trouble free Bullet ever. The new 500 is my second choice and the Karizma would be third.

Among the bikes in the poll it would have to be the karizma, even without the poll, Karizma is THE BIKE, unless there's a RD350/LC with spares supply available I pick the Karizma cause of its stability, engine torque, refinement, instrumentation and looks.

bullet 500 for me too, rest of the bikes are too small, no fun, karizma maybe a second choice, none of the others

Currently own a Bullet 350. Will be getting a new modle 500 in a couple of months. Just wish they'd bring in the export model AVL motor 500 with 5 gears. Bullet tradation aside, I could do with a few extra horses (25 as compared to 22 horses in the tradational 500) and a lil more torque in these mountains here. However da best bike I've owned is a RD 350, back in college days at Delhi. Had it for a year and then got stolen :-( That could zoooom, man! Wonder If I'll still be able to get good engine, gearbox and the rest I could do up...... Sigh!

I think Yezdi is already 17-18 bhp..

nah man dont have the spec rite now but the triple is sumwher arnd 108hp (110ps)@9200 rpm while the R1(old model cudn't find new specs, but i think the new one has arnd 170 bhp) had arnd 152bhp @10500 rpm so the R1 still rules

Figures on paper don't mean much there Techno! C'mon, think about it...which one do you think you could ride faster on normal INDIAN roads?

Plus, a 600cc bike will run right up there with a litre bike all the way to 150kmph. Only then would the extra grunt of a litre bike come into play.
