Hi guys,

Yesterday on my way to Panvvel spotted a red C Class AMG at Mulund Check naka. Well on the front it did have the traditional AMG skirt. Quickly took out my cam but it was too late to take a front pic. Tried takin a pic when i passed it but a Maruti van blocked the view. So no pics.

On my way back saw a red Alfa Romeo 166 and just 1 or 2 cars behind it the 2004 R1 (red). And no prizes for guessing who was riding it.............apna Salman Khan with a bodyguard (on a dirt bike) following closely behind. Cudnt take a pic cos i was driving. And almost 15 minutes later spotted his M5 stuck in traffic *

Seen so many cars but not a single pic. The only pic i managed to take was ...... i'll post it in a new topic (Herbie).

A classmate of mine in school had an Alfa Romeo ...red color not sure which model but it was two door was years back so dont really remember any details. His dad had it imported brand new when i was in the 8th grade or so ... that would be like a good 5-6 yrs back. The guy lived at Pali Hill had a 500SL also.

Hey, just read in this months ACI...Bonnie too has a 2004 R1...red n black. Looks like this bike is getting popular.

Also, there is an ad in the mag (at the back) about buying brand new Ducati's in India. So I expect to see a few more 999's soon too.

No , never , the Ducatis will never become popular in India among the masses coz of their killer un-acceptable price tags.
Also personally I dont like its looks compared to the sleek and aggresive Japs.

Well if by few more , you mean a couple of them , its possible, but beyond that I dont see anyone buying them.
For more info on its pricing visit http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/showth...ghlight=ducati (ducati in india?)
