Anyway this was achieved in UAE Abu Dhabi Ruwais Highway on a deserted section of the highway - just managed to hold on for 4 to 5 seconds. The person who owns the bike clocks 355 and its the fastest busa in Middle East at 1 mile timings in GCC.

At the moment in Bahrain. here for some time waiting to see TOP FUEL in action on Nov 10 & 11.
in pune close to Racecourse. (Fatima Nagar).

facts are facts, u cant deny them!
fieroid, actually there was this first lot of Rd which made 32 bhp, but then some decisions were taken n the later Rds were 27 bhp.
duno about the top speeds though. but definately there was a 32 BHP Rd

hmm..
I wont make tall claims and exaggerations.. the best i have done is 130kmph(speedo) on the wagonr at the Noida toll bridge.. could have gone for more... but the tall boy design and fear of speed radars prevented me...

By the way, i have reached 100kmph on my M800 in 30 odd seconds ;-)

160km at Ahemdabad express highway in my New Honda City with 5 people on board. This Sunday I went to lonavala but wasn't able to take more then 155km on express highway because I wasn't feeling safe due to concrete road.

Those RD's that came wid 30+ hp stock were the HT ones....thats High torque and the later ones wid 27hp were LT, low torque ones...
these were the figures from the factory and we all know that the RD's stopped production in india 15 yrs ago....so after so much of abuse over the years how much of power do u think these RD's will be making now? I bet even the best RD will never do more than 25hp on a dyno.....
maybe someone like Ron Chinoy can run lay his magical hands and make it even better than stock...else its really "all show and no go" RD's that see on road....also its really a pain to maintain a RD wid the non-availibility of spares!
so if someone says that mine does 170+ and stuff, its a bit hard for me to believe untill u have a back from a good tuner....
