NOw thats crazy.
I ride a fully modified fiero and run a really loud freeflow which I built. Once a cop stopped me for a routine check and ended-up asking me if he could install a freeflow on his "police - fiero".
Cops will be cops,....stupid morons!

Hey fieroid at least the cop who caught you had the enthu You should've told him about the list of modifications that could be done on the police fiero which would help him to catch the speeding criminals.

Gee I have valid leads that the thief may be a black pulsar.. so what do I do? Announce it to the media and country that I am on the look out for a black Pulsars.

Number of Black Pulsars in any given big City - 10000+ (?)
Cost to Repaint bike - 1200Rs

Arrghh AND if they do see the black pulsar are they going to chase them on their 1970s bullets " "Bollywood style" "?

Why is it so? Any such classifications in India?

it's probably based on statistical observations of higher number of overspeeding and car crash cases among red cars. apparently, a mere color that resembles a ferrari's is enough to whip up the schumachers in drivers !

further, typical buyer profiles of red 'sporty' (whatever that means) cars also indicate that there's a higher risk of a red-car driver indulging in over-enthusiastic driving than the others. just perception, and a way to make better money

Old thread but relevant, going by the news reports, the bomb planters of yesterday's mehrauli blast were on black pulsar, I am , is the colour responsible for the behaviour or the behaviour for choosing the colour.

If I may say so, I'd be a bit suspicious that the article is a kind of (cheap) marketing gimmick by Bajaj itself!

And the explosive was carried in a black polythene. Any coincidence and is there a colour code amongst the perpetrators, that the intelligence agencies have not been able to crack..

Incidentally, the eyewitness who saw the terrorists placing the bomb in the dust bin at the CP blast site, had also confirmed that they were wearing black dress. So better beware of black pulsor riders attired in black.
