I read on some auto magazine that the difference between 2012 and 2013 Ninja 650 is addition of ABS. No cosmetic and no modifications to engine.

^^ I went to Pune PBK on Saturday, 11 Aug, they said it will be another 10-15 days before bookings start, they didn't even have the OTR price. Only green coming like last time.

Should I , shouldn't I ? I hesitate mainly because I don't have funds for outright purchase and will have to avail a loan for which around 3 years EMI will be blocked - precluding any other significant purchases. Would have liked a 600cc+ inline 4 anyday, but none legally sold new.

Can any existing Ninja owners kindly provide feedback on the after sales service provided by Pro-Biking outlets.

I've always heard people complain bout Bajaj's after sales? Are the things different with Pro-Biking?, are the technicians knowledgeable or does one have to keep a constant watch to ensure they do a proper job?

As per the pbk manager in Dehradun, he is only waiting for the official allocation of number of bikes per pbk store before he opens the bookings. It was supposed to come to him by 14th morning but nothing so far.

Going to meet him today. Fingers crossed.

Hey bro. I have had my Ninja 250 for about a year and a half. No issues with the bike and also the probiking guys have been good with the servicing till now. No problems yet so not much I can add to your query apart from that they are doing an alright job.

Then you should worry about the bike itself because it is Bajaj that assembles it . You have some previous bad experience with Bajaj or it's just that they are from India???

Many friends of mine have had bad experiences with Bajaj after sales. I too planned to go with Bajaj but the horror stories made me shift to a Unicorn Dazzler. Not that Honda service is great but they manage to do the job. Even at the Honda service center I have seen the callous attitude of the mechanics. They scratched the fairing of a CBR250r and dropped a Unicorn on a single day during my visit there.
With the Ninja I am more worried as a lot of money is at stake besides the complex nature of mechanics involved make me wonder whether they will have the expertise to handle maintenance and repairs.

Talking Ninja Booked

UPDATE:

Booked my Green baby today finally after years of dreaming and waiting.

The OTR price in Dehradun is Rs. 5.15 lakhs. Paid 50k booking amount.

The doon PBK has got an allocation of only 2 bikes out of which 1 was blocked today in my name.

The delivery time is 10 days but i will mostly take delivery around mid September due to various reasons.

Only Green colour available. The obnoxious saree guard is fixed to the hinges of the rear grab rail, so the PBK manager said that I would have to pay 750 bucks on delivery to buy the grab rail once the saree guard is removed. Told him to have some shame and put it in the deal for free.

Will make the balance payment soon and then its just a matter of time before she comes home.

Congratulations mate. Looking forward to a ownership report and a photo shoot.
