Let me take the liberty of answering your ques on behalf of BP, yes Ninja do have the daytime running lamp, the low beam is always on while the engine is on.

Studies have shown that having a headlight `on' increases other drivers' ability to estimate the location, speed and direction of the vehicle. This reduces the chance of collisions. It is mandatory in many countries to have headlights hardwired to be turned on as soon as the motorcycle engine is started.

in some Scandinavian countries where the weather is usually dark and gloomy, for better visibility the car/motorcycles had their beams on in 'low beam' mode,

the benefits were taken into account(such as visibility, okay i can just say one, but is one hell lot of a reason) and made mandatory in fast sports cars/motorcycles

correct me if i am wrong

Where are the photus?

@balenopower

Been close to 10 years since I gave up bikes, primarily due to the distance I drive in a day...
Ninja has always fascinated me,from the time Bajaj Auto ran a full page ad in TOI in 1994....(250 ZZR) from what you have see as an initial impression, would you recommend it for someone who has been away from bikes for a while, I am asking this from a riding perspective, is it an easy handler?? Also how comfy is the seat, I am 5'11 and not on the lighter side

10 years is quite a long time, however the ninja is quite an easy bike to ride in or out of town. Im almost 5'10 and on the heavier side as well, but thts not a problem at all on the ninja. The only thing you will have to adjust to is the sporty riding position, which might give you a few wrist aches in the beginning but thats about it. Its a wonderful bike to ride overall.

@johnny - i havent tried calculating the mileage yet. Infact i still dont know what mileage my previos and current machines give.Never tried to find out. But i should get a ballpark figure soon for the ninja.

I can so relate to you. I fell in love with the Ninja when I saw it in the 2nd Auto expo. Its brochure adorned the walls of my room ever since and I kept waiting for it to be launched since then. I cant even say how excited I was when the Ninja was launched, unfortunately the long wait has taken its toll and I utilized the finances somewhere else. But, hopefully next year my decade old dream might come true.

This is an active saftey feature, irrespective of the fact how big your motorcycle is, it will always remain the smallest vechicle on the road, so this always on headlight make the bike a bit more visible to other road users.

The exact specificationo is F 110/70 R 17, R 130/70 R 17, though these IRCs are pretty potent as far as performance is concerned, but in case someone is looking for an upgrade Pirelli is the way to go. One of our customer has upgraded to Pirelli, front is exact same and the rear is one section wider 140, and its just transfrom the way the bike looks.
