Oh my god!!! Another accident.

The car looks quite damaged a lot by a bike. The good thing is that the passenger compartment is not effected in the crash.

Thank god everybody is safe. Did you sort out all the legal formalities??

in the end i have came to know that i dont need LC for the insurance claim so.. now my car is @ the workshop of honda which is located at lal baug..!!

i'll be going der 2moro...and sort the things out with them...

-----

Edit: why my car is so damaged and pulsar isnt that damaged compared to honda city ...? i mean look at the damage...its like totally screwed man...and a pulsar at 100kmph didnt had a small dent...only the steering and yes there were many problems but when it comes to body part why my car is so damaged?

That's a real bad crash and the damage is much more to your car then the bike. Hopefully it'll all get sorted out & nobody was seriously hurt. If it wasn't for you being alert the story would have been quite different.

Thankfully it was nothing serious & that's what matters. Good luck & hopefully you car will be on the road again soon.

This is not the first time I am seeing Honda Cars so badly damaged by a fresk accident...cheap quality material indeed or is it just for india to reduce the cost...
I have seen 2 big accidents on highways with bike involving lancer and another one on cielo...there was just a small dent in the cars but the bike was reduced to a ball...
I hope Honda use better steel composition for their sedans...

I agree. Are Honda Cars soo flimsy?? Just look at Mugen_Power's post earlier! I had once seen a PMT (Pune Municipal Transport) bus rear ending a NHC at less than 20kmph (He was taking a turn) and the damage to the rear part of the car was unbelievable. The boot seemed to have folded right up to the C-pillar. And the fender had crumpled like paper. The NHC needs airbags now!

Well the cars are not made out of paper. The damage that you see there is because of the crumple zone. This zone is what protected the driver and passengers and also if you notice hardly any damage to the passsenger cabin.

The damage looks a little too much for Honda class of car, may be a bike going at 100 KMPH can cause this much of a damage.

I saw pix of another incident on a different site where the bike literally went in the car speeding at probably 100+ MPH. I cant recall where.

It may look bad and be expensive to fix, but I'm sure it's safe as hell for those inside.

Bad luck bro. All the best getting your ride back on the road.
