@Unknownsatan ,
The bike which you saw might have been a Grey Kawasaki ZX14.
With an extended swingarm and a whole lot of other mods.
I heard that the owner spent nearly 3/4th of the bike cost on the extra mods.
Will try get some pics.

Yeah Manish it is grey and looks like ZX14. So it might be the same.
Was amazed to see such a thing here.

Lovely exhaust note there of the F430 in the 2nd video, though not for too long.
BTW , the F430 in the 2nd video is Sanjay Dutt's ex.

So Suhaas, do you mean all the imports and the super-cars we are seeing on road in india are RHD? I am sure it cannot be the only reason...

Where were you all these automotive years Atul? No offense bro. Yes all sports / supercars in India are RHD and no LHD are in India post the 2001 legislation that prohibits the import of LHD cars.

I was in B'lore for 2 days! Saw these imports for sale. Among this one seems to be a cool pick, 1996 BMW 323i coupe, which is imported in `98 & only done 46,000km. Imported & used by a VIP.

But the hottest of them all was a 1970 Land Rover, more photos of it'll be posting seperately in Land Rover thread.

@ecksreturns, Thank you for the info. I have never been into supercars and imports until I became member of tbhp. I am sure that I am not the only one here who does not know about this. You will find plenty here who dont know about supercars being specially designed as RHD for india.

My original question was, why Ford Shelby GT500 is missing from the scene and LHD being the only reason was not satisfactory . If Lambo, porsche can be designed RHD for india, why not Shelby. Is Ford not willing to make modifications? Maybe you can think of some other logical reason apart from being LHD as you already have a great collection of these metallic beauties. I have seen Magus Cars website and they have listed Ford Shelby so that means it is available for india.

Ford In India, Ford India, Ford Mustang GT Coupe India, Ford Mustang GT Convertible India, Ford Shelby India, Ford Mustang Bullitt India - Magus Cars
