Default DTSi in Singapore

Well this is a photo that we all Indians should be proud about...
The very own indigenous Bajaj Pulsar DTSi 180 spotted treading the roads of SINGAPORE!!!!

I am sure Rajiv and Sanjeev Bajaj will sure be Proud...

(well $1=25+ Rs).... most of the indians after test ride goes back coz of the price.... but they have to understand tht singaporeans pays almos double for all vehicles in singapore... anyway am proud tht we have somethin from india in here....

I've seen lots of yamaha RX-1100/135s in Singapore but I am not sure if they came from India. Pulsar sure looks good.

Send them to Dubai and they wont be so proud....they're now standard Pizza and Paratha delivery vehicles. But yeah, they're still selling - delivery or otherwise. Price here is Dhs6,750/- for the 180 multiply by 12 for the rupee equivalent.

Well this is nothing new..... Indian companies have a big presence in many countries in Africa especially south africa, nigeria, etc. I've seen a lot of them.. even Tata's are big hit there especially the Safari mainly because Indian vehicles are cheaper than the alternatives...Seen quite a lot of indica's and safaris in Italy as well.... I also read somewhere that the pulsar is a big hit in Mexico... its the best selling model .... its a huge hit there !!!!!! ... So finally Indian auto companies are going International..... pride for us.

U stole my words,zappo.

But, what i admire is that they're wearing helmets. Isn't that a change from umpty bikers in our country who dont give a d@m about head protection.

The differences is in implementation - if those two didnt wear helmets the rider would probably lose his license and pay a fine equivalent to the cost of his vehicle....

I agree with you I kinda now feel ashamed to see the plight of our bikes out here and not to forget even the Eliminator is being sold out here but is used for Delivery purpose....................and so is the Hero Honda Cbz.

I agree with you. However I can tell you one thing for sure. These kind of tough measures are things which you will never see in this country even in another 200 years, everything else be damned.

what is not to be proud?
for any businessman what is most important is selling stuff.
more sales = more profit
