It was a good launch and Sunny leone was a surprise addition. Needless to say she got more eyeballs than the bikes.
The RSV4 is definitely on my wishlist but will have to sell an organ or two to even think about it.
But overall good PR by Tuono. They managed to get the right crowd at the right place for the launch. Hope their after-sales is as good as the party.

Also heard that some test-ride vehicles are being brought down. This will be a slap on the face of the other brands who go into hibernation at the mention of a test-ride by a prospective customers.

Wow, thats cool! Indian dealers mindset need to change. I was able to talk to Tusker Harley and they were willing to give me a test ride of Iron 883. Just that I have to deposit a credit card, valid driving license and need to dressed in Jeans and boots. which I don't think is unreasonable.

The showroom is still under construction. Went to residency road thinking it would have opened post the launch. :-( may take a month or two to be fully operating. The boards are up and lit though.

Shubz,
Believe they will get their first set of motorcycles by this weekend. You might want to give it a visit the next week?
Too Bad I was out on my holidays and had to miss this gran opening.

Yeah. They did say they will be up and running in two days time, when I checked with them on their FB page.

And I wasn't even aware of any gala opening either :-P

Visited Tuono motors and checked out the range of bikes displayed.

Two words --- Awesome! EXHORBITANT!

The staff were very nice. They even obliged by cranking up the RSV4 APRC despite it being in an air conditioned environment.

No test rides allowed (Fair enough)

Will be posting some pics later as I have to bring them down to below 1 MB per pic.

Shubz heard that they are offering good discounts for pushing the sales, hows the Aprilia Tuono as its naked V4 is pulling me towards Aprilia.

I cannot confirm on this. Ajay. These are brand new bikes in the Indian market. CBU's big time. (with no chance of CKD's or manufacturing plants or assembling plants in India - at least as of now) Don't think they would start off with discounts. Has anyone been offered any discounts?

The Pune dealers do offer discounts on the bike, so i guess the Bangalore dealer too would offer them.
