Financing is possible as Probiking in Faridabad told me HDFC is financing the 650.

Interest rates are pretty high - as high as 18%.

Wow 18%, personal loans would be more affordable. Believe Bajaj should be able to update by the next weekend on finance options as updated to me when i visited probiking center this sunday.

Hey, that was me at Nandi on Sunday morning.

But this is the puny 250R, not the newly launched 650.

I have a K&N replacement type filter on the bike, hence the sticker.

How in the world I would assume a team-bhpian on a bike ! Better you put a sticker for recognition ! Means you did not even notice someone coming so close to you and clicking ! I could not see the face or even the skin color with those heavy package around your body

Dont think that would have been Aditya, he has one eye on the bike wherever he is (usually within a radius of 2-3 feet of his bike :P )

Before I started riding with him i thought i was crazy about my bike cos I park it inside the house

edit: So it was really you Adi? You getting distracted man.

LOL. Will put a team bhp sticker soon, so next time you guys can recognize me.

The pic where i am shooing away the goat is funny. I guess it thought the green ninja was a big pile of juicy green grass. I didn't want it to try any funny stuff and scratch my bike.

Is there any talk of 650 in Black?

Congrats, eagarly awaiting your ownership threads.
90 days is the upper limit for delivery, or thats what I was told
Probable delivery by July end
No other color option as of now.

For a moment Aditya was on cloud 9 She looks good not puny for her class and am pretty sure she can still pull a punch in good hands

I was travelling to the airport on Sunday morning and found around 6-7 bikers cross our cab. I was telling my wife that the bikers must be having a meet somewhere near Lepakshi or Nandi Hills. Didn't realize there were T-BHPians in this meet .

Probably you do not know what you missed ! We were a group of 15 photographers from the Discovery Planet International group ( 2 day schedule, members from 2 states). The day was very young and you could have got a bunch of riding, crawling, flying kind of shots of your Ninja all over those hills May be next time... LOL

How on earth do these banks justify these high rates?

That too when the same banks offer personal loans for much less. Feels like I am committing a sin by buying a bigger bike and hence must be made to suffer.

Nice review, details worth reading

My colleague bought a red 650R this week. It is a pre-owned bike and has two brothers exhaust and white aftermarket lights. Let me know if anybody is interested in the sound of the exhaust and I can take a video though loads of them are available on the net. Here are a few pics -
