Default Indian Customs

The customs in India allow bikes up to 600cc to be imported..atleast thats what the indian customs websites say..
so if R1 is comming then they have to ammend that rule about max CC.

I think you mean above 600cc. I remember reading that.

They won't allow it. Faster bikes means rasher drivers. Rasher drivers means more accident. Well,you get the picture. But celebrate guys, indias getting awesomer cars and bikes for awesomer prices!

Rubbish! A person can be a rash driver even at 10kmph. Speed has nothing to do with rash driving.

Yamaha has also announced a new plant to be built in the same timeframe. (probably down south).

my dear friend ,

FAST IS NOT ALWAYS RASH ...like rtech said ...even a cycle can be a danger when in inexperienced hands ....if faster vehicles mean rasher driver drivers then why have vehicles having top speeds in excess of 100kph ...why not have a 10 kph max speed ...

100 kph on the expressway when driven properly may not be dangerous ...but 50 kph on the right lane on the same expressway can be really dangerous ..

Thats the good news. The bad news is that we have to wait till 2009 to actually be able to buy these bikes.

But still, atleast there is now hope for all of us here. And this also gives us time to get our finances in order!

Now if only other companies (Honda, Suzuki...WAKE UP) follow their lead and start making their PROPER bikes available to us. It's crazy that today, if a person has the money, he can legally buy a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce or Bently, but he cannot officially buy a superbike in India with a bill and warranty!
I believe this news is crap. Yamaha is not committed to the Indian Market anymore. See what bulls....t they have launched yesterday after teasing us with awesome bikes in the autoexpo.

Are these >>>DELETED<<< blind, not to see that greatest market expectations are higher CC bikes and not flea like bikes like G5 and the 125 gladiator (Is that a bike at all???????). See www.truly-yamaha.com for more info on what they plan to do. Moderators or someone give Mr.Tomotaka Ishikawa a membership on our forum and Xbhp.com. Let him study the market.

Mod Note: Please refrain from racist comments.

Exactly! There would not be much of a demand for a grey market used bike without warranty for 8-9 lakhs, when the same bike could be bought officially for roughly that price (or even less if it could be assembled here at a later date).
