Best billboard ad I ever saw was on my way to chandigarh about a decade back for Enfield Bullet.
All it said was " Kyonki Mard Khilono Se Nahi Khelte" (translation :Because Men dont play with Toys) . Awesome

Anyone remembers the caliber ad where he carries a puppy in his bag and drives a looong way to meet his childhood sweetheart, only to find her married, loved it! esp the 'unshakeable' tagline. Also in those days they had good quotes in the caliber ad behind magazines, wonder where they are gone, favorite was: "Some will take the elevator, i will take the stairs, they will reach faster, but i will reach stronger", was awesome!

Absolutely. This by far lists top of the charts for a motor-cycle advertisement IMO. These days, motorcycle ads focus more on stunts performed by experts.
The 'Feel Like God' advert for the Avenger also rates very high in the list.

i think yamaha & honda should concentrate much on ads & make it somewhat attractive for people to buy like bajaj & hero honda. & i am sure there would me more units sold based on the add they provide.

My Top of Chart:

1) The BOSS : Shogun Advt. ruffling everything that it zooms past. Captures essence of that bike.
2) RX100: Extremely catchy tune from Top Gun.
3) Hamara Bajaj : One of the best brand building advt.


The worst so far is HH "desh ki dhadkan". Worst theme, worst music, pathetic coordination and lousy graphics!

THe Current 'Trip' campaign being run by BUllet is not only best bike advertising, but according to me it is one of the best ads ever come out of india.

The Best one is SHOGUN Ad,I tried searching on new even inquired to some TVS dealers but no one has it.
Even that poster a black man with all black riding gear the add was best,and obvious the Bike,
Many Bajaj adds are good like Avenger " I Feel like god"
The other add in which one school girl distributing some handouts don't remember for which bike/scooter does any one remembers the add .?
Worst adds are of hero Honda adds

Default splendor, rx100 n cbz

Hi friends,
I remember a few which caught my fascination as a kid:

1. Splendor: showing bad roads n the the guy pulls down is visor & the visor n roads & surroundings become great it says " you can't change the road but you can change the way you see them with a hh splendor..just leave the roads & ride the clouds on a splendor"

2. i remember a old print ad of rx100 at a small mechanic's place( it was old even then) featuring gavaskar ( not too sure) & saying " for those who don'y compromise, its a yamaha"

3. a couple of cbz ads as well
first one was a print ad saying " 60 to zero 3 seconds..( the 1st bike with discs
2nd a commercial where heads turned when a cbz passed by like a bride looking at it while people aghast at the marriage & a head nun trying to stop her girls from staring at it.
hope some guys identify with it

mods..i wish to start a thread on interesting print ads of automobiles around the globe..i feel it would be really interesting
