That yam R1 was owned by my brother in Kuwait. When i went there, he allowed me to take his beauty and we went to the outskirts near Abbasia.There i had one of the most memorable moments in my life...ooff.... what a ride maan........ and many of his classmates (kuwaties) were riding R6, Hornets, r1s, Cbr, Ninjas and i even got a chance to touch and feel the famous Y2K. I had my hands on all of them except the Y2K. whoa..........

i did 190kmph in Elantra Crdi on the Bombay-pune expressway. Though the speedometer showed 190kmph it might be lower due to speedo errors. I also did 185kmph in Fiat Palio S10 on the Ahmedabad-baroda expressway and the Palio felt rock solid.

Yeah the VTEC can do 160-odd in third gear but not with ease! It would be pretty much near the redline!!

Crossed 200 kmph for the first time on two wheels last night. It was a bit scary, and I wouldnt advocate this on anything but a deserted road that you know very very very well.

Looks like the engine had more to offer but I had to pass! And yeah - it does sound like you're riding a Bullet (EDIT - ENFIELD Bullet)
