Really? Please give me some links where I can see this for myself. No, no I am not criticising you. In fact, I DO want to be proven wrong so that I can go buy one out of the lot of non-IL4 bikes available today. Because IL-4 bikes are so beyond my budget and it looks like a forever-wait for screamers. I spent hours on the net like crazy looking for a non-IL4 bike which would sound just as great, if not more. While on the subject of screamers, I couldn't help but provide two videos here of 1991 Honda CBR250 ( an inline 4 ). I am yet to see a bike which sounds better than these. I wish Honda had launched these in India rather than that single-cylinder CBR250 it launched. I would have paid even 6 lakhs for these pocket-rockets because next stop is R1/CBR1000/GSX1000 at 14plus lakhs.

PGsagar: What you have posted is exactly what Sheel meant. Different strokes for different folks. Forget links. I don't like the sound of that bike you just posted. See. Liking a sound, color, shape, smell, movie, bike, girl etc. etc. are all very very personal things and i can bet that there are no two people is the whole world who have the same likings for all of the above things. No. Simply cannot be. I am an Inline 4 bike owner. My bike doesn't scream. It has an Arata exhaust which roars. I like it that way. But now my liking has changed. I don't want this mechanical sound which sounds like a drill machine. I want a single cylinder or a twin now. For this fact i love my bullet's sound now. These are personal things and you shouldn't get all emotional about other's choices. Cheers!! All that matters is our passion for two wheels!


Coming back to the topic we still haven't seen any pics of the CB1000 which has just been bought. Post up some pics man!!

The bikes I am mentioning are priced beyond the regular I-4 territory. Stick with 600's if you want sound.

















The best for the last



I have myself watched the 250RR videos zillion times.

Missed these

Navpreet, I don't think I sounded very emotional about it. Crazy? May be. Well, if both the words mean one and the same, then you are right. Anyway, as for the other sounds, may be some day I will outgrow IL4 sounds like you did. But right now I can't get enough of them. And while we are on the subject of this, may I see a video clip of your bike's heavy sound? Which bike is it anyway?

Sheel, you are right. Different strokes for different people. Thanks for those links anyway. But as I said, some day, may be some day, I will start liking twins and v-4s. But right now, it's IL4 all the way. By the way, the last video of cbr250 is a hell of a screamer. It sounds like a jet engine. All this from a tiny 250cc motor. Heck, I don't think even a tricked up 'busa will sound like this. And yes, I think you are right about 600s sounding better than 1000s. Thanks once again.

I know the feel PGsagar. Even i was smitten by it at some point in life. I have a Kawasaki ZX-12R. And the exhaust is a full Titanium Arata. This arata is known for its thundering sound. I bet you can look for an arata equipped ZX-12R. There should be a couple available on youtube. As this was a very expensive exhaust it didn't catch the fancy of many motorcyclists. But the build quality and sound are worth every penny.

A ZX-12R? A great bike. Shouldn't you be psoting pics of your beauty on teambhp? I am sure it will be for the benefit of all.
