Kar, it would be better if u could ride your bike and a Team BHPian who owns any of these bikes can compete with you in the drag. That way, the transparency of the whole process cant be questioned. Would like to know your take on this

Yes, Enti is a cruiser for sure ( although, unfortunately, I've seen some magazines dubbing it to be a pseudo cruiser ). But, the point to be noted here is, its not the question of whether the Enticer is made for popping wheelies. It's only about, whether you CAN or CANT. And the answer for that is pretty obvious. And yes, in one of the reviews on Enfield Thunderbird ( which again falls in the same category of bikes) in a popular Auto Magazine, the author had posted a snap in which he'd popped a wheelie on the Thunderbird Twinspark.

But, I agree with your last point. Yamaha Enticer is always admired for its Looks. Enti rocks in that department. No two words about it.

Karthik M B - the same guy behind the design of the logo of FIAT 1100 club in Bangalore and Hyderabad as well.

For me some of these dont sum up well at all
Hi Karthik.

I think MB forgot to mention here that, when Enticer was launched in 2002, to compete with the Kawasaki Bajaj Eliminator, it bagged a few awards, including the prestigious " BBC Wheels Motorcycle of the year 2002" beating competition from the Thunderbird itself ( which also is a cruiser). The reasons for Enticer selling well were, its looks ( remember, when it was launched, 8 to 9 out of 10 people mistook it to be the Eliminator - so profound was the similarity between the two) and also its pricing - 35000 INR lesser than the Bajaj. Apart from these two major contributing factors, its comfort ( my friend who owns a Unicorn still comments that the seat of the Enticer feels like a Sofa), decent power and mileage and exceptional handling. No wonder it sold well till the end of 2004 and start of 2005.

Now coming to your questions:

1) Going back in time by around 6-7 years, as you might very well remember, there was a bike named RX 100 ( which was the flagship model of Yamaha, and probably still is). It sold well, in fact, very well, although, if u compare the numbers with a CD 100 probably, you would still say the RX 100 didnt sell well. Well, its a well known fact that, Yamaha stopped the production of RX100 and introduced a bike named RXG, which bombed ( because it was tuned for mileage). How do you account for this strategy of Yamaha? Well, that friends, I think, only Yamaha can explain best. The same strategy was executed in 2004 and the sale of Enti was stopped in India, although it was being exported from here. The unwillingness of the management of the company to promote the bike, became its undoing of sorts :(

2)As I told you, just by going through the sales figure of a model, one cant conclude anything about its performance.

3) Well, the photos easily give an idea that the Enticer is not underpowered. Its just that, one has to know to extract the maximum out of this bike, since its peak power comes in the higher REV band. Otherwise, the build quality of the Enticer was top notch and it was designed to meet all the norms ( as I said, it was still being exported to Europe).

Can someone upload the pics of the first meet? Wondering why no one posted yet. How did it go about? How many bikes made it?

the meet wasn't turned with mass enticers but turned with Class Enticers. All the bikes in the club is in Beautiful Condition. Definitely one will stick her/his eyes on these bikes for a minute. No Doubt about it!
