Are you sure??

The reasons I'm asking...

1. Twin Discs in front, and more importantly a disc brake at the rear.

2. In the first photo, if you look a t the gap in the faring, you can see a cylinder head. It looks like the first cylinder in an inline 4. Its too much on one side to be a single cylinder engine.

3. The swingarm looks like the original cast part, which would be very difficult to make here(for one bike)

4. The frame looks identical to a yamaha deltabox. That again would be impossible to make here.

5. The plastics look too good, in fit and finish to have been made here. Must be imported

Unless the owner imported the frame, swingarm, and plastics, and put it together with a ybx(125cc?) engine, my guess is thats a 2000-2002 Yamaha YZF 600.

IMHO, the only part of that bike that looks like that it was made in India, is the exhaust.

Doesn't look like any branded make I've see.

The rear swingarm is a "REAL" Yzf part. The fairing is too well made and the quality of fit n finish is too god to be made by a 'modifier. The bike looks 95% real to me. And I actually think its a real YZF because heavymetalxx has tried to fool other members in another thread too. Faking is lame dude.
