With a 125 cc mill, it churns out around 11 bhp and looks like a ‘baby Karizma’.....

Shine in new name/design and called Sunshine?

I dont think is the way just honda thinks...I guess even the others feel that the indian market wants Diet bikes that sip on petrol, so probably they are trying to gel lower cc with performance. I'm just guessing seeing the 150 Ninja.
250cc + would be something substantial enough to be called a stunner.
May be they'd climb up the cc ladder with newer versions of the bike or newer bikes, later.

we don't even have choices of even getting an Indian version SBK about 250-500cc,all we have is 180cc and the topmost 225cc ..and above all the imported SBK's are no less than 8L,comet had come,nice bike to ride in 1.6L budget but lack of A.S.S. :(

250cc can happen. They give Unicorn to HH and HH can give the Kzhma engine

Yep. There are equal number of takers for both the kind, infact there could be a 3rd kind who'd have the FE bike for going to the office and a Power bike for evening & weekends.

Wonder when these bike companies would think out of the box and cater too both kinds!

More or less. Primarily taken from the CRF 230. Except for the carburetion, CDI mapping, & the six speed transmission, among other things.

Forget the CBF. Bring in the tuned CBX 250 with 25 horses. With rugged mechanicals & six gears to boot, that bike will garner more fans than any other bike in India.....if priced right.
