First new vehicle on "the new and improved" Team-BHP. Congratulations.
How did you choose yellow of all colours?
I hope you have bought a good helmet. Ride safe.

@ cyrus: Congrats on new set of wheels!
What's 'AAA' lettering above headlamp? And is this customisation a real job or a photoshop job?

Good choice, Dio's are quite good.

The body is complete fiber I suppose, so no rust just pannel changes if damaged, fantastic isn't it.

Congrats on the purchase Cyrus. Are these pics of the bike when you bought it? Or are these pics of the bike after you have customised it?

Either ways the mods look good. What else has been planned?

Congratulations cyrus, now I know why my wife was keen on this very shade of the DIO. I kinda found it whacky initially when we picked up one about 3 months back in the same color.

You got a kaali peeli on two wheels as well. Now thats one flashy scooter and a flashy rider. Is your helmet yellow too?

Congratulations Cyrus, the bike looks great. Its a great city runabout.

Haha thats funny, great color combination on your scooter, does truly match the Transformer counterpart. Which reminds me, that I saw the new Camaro in yellow on the street here in the US, looks like a beast, waiting to see one in India.

Congratulations. Now get rid of the matt black wheels.
