Default Rossi R6 In Town!!!!

Well had the pleasure of being the first to check it out!!! a brand new 2005 ROSSI R6 LIMITED EDITION. it had the yellow combination and is owned by SHABIR....he has imported it for sale. poor guy got it to java city and the cops came behind him and caught him...they were basically looking for reasons to fine him. first they asked him to rev it hard as the bike was loud...but were dissapointed since it had the original exhaust and was softer than even an indian bike!!! then they started their usual, it is not registered yet, riding fast etc. etc.

bike is a dream..has the comple set of ROSSI decals and the front is exactly like the race bike with the "DOCTOR" and 46 written in huge.
was a dream to ride...after that getting home on my rd350 was like riding some slow bike!!!!

its nice to hear. Shabbir seems to be mostly selling special editions.

I agree with the comparison with the Rd350. High performance bikes give the thrill and adrenaline rush like no other. Acceleration is mind blowing.

Some people have all the luck! You get to check out the latest addition to Shabbir's arsenal, and then complain that your RD seems slow!! <VERY jealous>

Seriously, it must have been awesome. What did you clock? Or was it just a small spin?

Thanks for the info. Honda should seriously look into providing CBUs..

What did you do with the bike? How fast could you manage to go?

Please inform him that both are not available till oct. So if he is going specifically for this he will be wasting his time. IF you want can give you no of HONG LEONG. They are the Yamaha dealers in Singapore.

Hey, that's one snazzy bike.
Any idea about the price he's expecting for it ?

Hey Iceman is this the Shabbir from Rest House Road or the guy from Mosque Road who lives in Banaswadi? I've heard the rest house road guy has a nice bike collection...I know the mosque road Shabbir quite well...been his neighbour since childhood till he shifted to banaswadi....he gets down some neat bikes too...He brought down a brand new Ninja for speedrun 2005 and smoked a hayabusa with it....
