Must be the one that has just been imported a few days back.

Nice pics Bunny. I guess this bike (now in Delhi) was from Mumbai (Bandra to be precise).

Thumbs up

Hey Guys,

There is one more Goldwing in town which is red in colour. It belongs to the owner of a Garage near Lilavati Hospital. Is generally parked there during the day. He has apparently added custom accessories worth US 6000/-$ to it I am told.

Yup. You're right viper. The Goldwing has been imported alongwith a 2005 Yamaha R1 through a good friend of mine who is a dealer in Versova.

A building friend spotted a yellow Goldwing in the area. Says it had 1800 registration. Is it the same one Sonicmax?

Viper, I'm not sure about the color. Are you sure it is red?

There are 2 goldwings in Bandra. One yellow and one red.
The red is Toyato Techs and the yellow is Zulfis of bachoo Motors. Both sport 1800 reg.

The Goldwing has an AM/FM Player with CD changer, Rider to passenger intercom, Rider to Rider CB Radio, Reverse gear, Electrically adjustable windshield, Built-in air compressor to inflate tires, cigarette lighter, Fog lamps, ABS/Linked brakes, vanity mirror inside the trunk lid (for the lady to put on her make up!) The optional extras also include Heated handgrips, heated seats, DVD player fixed on the inside of the trunk lid. BTW those Aircon looking ducts are for directing air to your legs and not an Air conditioner. I also rate the BMW K1200LT close on heels of the Goldwing. I had the opportunity of riding one of my friends BMW K1200LT and its like a fantasy world. Posted a picture here. Thr BMW in addition to most of the GW features also has an electric/hydraulic operated center-stand that deploys at the flick of a button and a GPS Navigation system.
