If they only released this in India along side the C5, I would be a happy man.

19 inch wheels are one more change.

This G5 doesn't even have the latest model of their RVM's that is available on C5's, G5 still has the mirrors of TBTS; I sincerely wish TBTS get the 500CC engine & I'll seriously think about buying one.

looks like a 98 Classic 500 ! just with the UCe engine ! does not appeal that though

@aargee : in a chat with RE people, they intend to launch the TBTS in india, but the pricing factor ( according to them ) might be a problem, i guess close to 2lacs :( !

The other thing being that they intend to have Efi with lambda sensor as Euro 5 and not before that norm. is necessary in india. and even with that i got some crap from them saying that they have to have a platinum coating inside the silencer for reducing heat. And that would increase the pricing by 25k . I don't understand a thing though, that how platinum can do that ? can it ? and then the worst thing is that the Regional service manager was Speaking Platinum as Plutonium ! lololol

Platinum as plutonium

On a serious note, Platinum is infact used in exhausts.
Platinum plays a very important role of a catalyst to break down toxic gases coming out of the engine into carbon dioxide and other reasonably less harmful gases.

My fair guess would be this: With Euro 5 coming into picture, the use of platinum would be forced upon automobile makers because only THAT meets the emissions norms set by Euro-5.
