For Sure, please do upload a video at your convenience. Would be keen to hear to her roar with the mods. The Standard output was more like a high pitched eliminator exhaust note (my 2 cents of observation and no offense please).

Hi BlackPearl,

The red 650R also has a set of clip-on handlebars. Can we get your review of the same?

The bubble fairing on the 650R looks a little out of place, maybe because of the head lamp design. Do the post the exhaust sound!

No offence taken, I dont like the stock sound at all and I am not to happy with the two brothers sound either. But I will surely post the video as soon as possible.

I will ask the owner, or I can take a ride to get the feel. Though I am not sure if I should ask for it. Lookwise, I did not like it. It looks quite crude. The material is also not at par. I will take a better picture next time.

You mean the stock one or the after market one? Green bike is stock and the red bike has an after market tinted windscreen.

The rates for two-wheeler loans from public sector banks are at about 18% while personal loans from SBI are upwards of 17%. Thanks a ton RBI for ruining my party. Why does the same 3 lakh loan cost less when I take it for a four-wheeler?

Just got off the phone with Bajaj finance in Pune. They are offering a personal loan at 15% reducing balance, no pre-payment & foreclosure charges. EMI for a 5lakh loan for 60months works out close to 12k per month.

So it works out to 720K with principal, in other words 220K interest money for 5 years which means an interest of 45K per year.
Interesting no downpayment?

Downpayment? No baba, this is a personal loan. I am going over to HDFC tom to check on their 2 wheeler loans scheme. Hopefully it's better.

I think HDFC is offering two-wheeler loan at 18% p.a. Can you also find out if the Bajaj Finance scheme mentioned above is available pan-India or is it only Pune specific?

Will surely check & let you know. Also, just got a call from Axis bank offering interest rate of 14.5% reducing balance, no pre-payment\foreclosure charges.
It pays to cross negotiate

Check this out :

Bank of India

The Scheme provides loan for purchasing 2/4 wheeler vehicles (like car, scooter, motorcycle etc.). Maximum amount of loan is Rs. 25 lacs, depending upon cost of vehicle & income of proponent, at attractive rate of interest and easy repayment plan.

I had inquired about finance for my Ninja but had to drop the idea due to tons of paperwork.

But the bright side is that their interest rates are much lower than what most companies are charging. I was offered a loan for as less as 10.5%

So head to the nearest BoI branch and live your dreams

Wow, the BOI scheme looks really nice. A step closer to the 650r.

Aditya,
Doubtful if we have this ROI prevailing even now? One of my Colleague approached BOI for a car loan and he was told a floating of 11.5% which i felt is no good. ICICI offered him fixed 12% which sounds much better, atleast you have the peace of mind that its not gonna increase
