We had the BMW F650 some years ago and it flopped badly. I suspect that's the reason mosty manufacturers are taking it easy when it comes to launching sports / touring bikes in India.
If you observe, our market is slowly opening up. We are gradually moving up the ladder. We have gone form 100s to 150s to 180s to 225s to 250s. It won't be too long before we get bigger twins and 4 pots. But, don't expect a quantum leap.

u can go for the ZMA as of now. If you can wait for some more time you can go for the P250. or else if u can't resist and if you really require a good, powerfull bike go for the Comet.

I don't think you wanna buy a Kinetic assembled foreign bike.
I have a GF125 and trust me its PATHETIC. Those @#$%^ at kinetic has totally ruined the original. The one made in India is such poorer quality than the original Korean. After sales service is terrible. The do it like they're doing you a favor.
I really wish they just import more of the comets and lower the price atleast a bit, instead of that darn exclusivity of theirs. They'll earn more money buy selling larger numbers of the comet at a lower price than a higher price and not selling at all.
