You have got the period of the 2 wheeler right!

Let me throw a hint - it was placed as an "up market" version of what was a rage in those days. Remember the gals who were used for the ads - especially the bright yellow coloured specimen (don't want to use the word 'model' twice!) and an equally vibrant model driving it!?

Key shape makes me feel that it's from TVS family. Does it belong to TVS Victor GLX (125cc version of regular TVS victor). I recall Sachin advertising yellow model.

I am sorry to sorry again, Suhas!!

There is long shot connection between Sachin and the game and the bike - if you can recollect the fame earned by someone in the very same game ....

Default Result Time!

And, the "King of Key" (at least as of today) is HoOligaN - he got the Gladiator right (own the bike or what?)


Closely followed by "ms001" - the last one was tough - a special jury mention for quick replies


And the un-identified key is that of "BAJAJ SUNNY"


Waiting for others to chip in with their keys

So here is the starter - and I am sure that these are the easy ones!!

(MODS, in case there is a similar thread, please merge this. My search did not throw up results on these lines..)
Am guessing the right key is a honda activa.

The first one is pretty evident - but what about its pair? And the second one - no hints needed!
I feel am really close here, the right one is a Roadking.
