I'm glad he picked the Machismo and not the thunderbird. The Tbird is a pathetic looking and designed bike. I can't help but laugh whenever I see one on the road!

Frankly, as far as touring in comfort goes, V12 has probably taken a step backwards with the shift from the Elim to the Bullet. But then owning a Bullet is not only about the bike, its also about the image it projects, something the Elim cannot compete against.

Rt and all,
Guess among the bullets, the only bull that gives any competition for the p180, zma etc is the machismo..
My friend's machismo(2000 model) recently did 130kph after a good service, he says it is at its all time best now.. Very smooth and powerful.. When we aere at B'lore, it could beat the competition out of any other bike(Indian).. Never tried to race with an RD(Wuld have got thrashed, big time)..

_Everybody 'better' make way for V12's bullet_
