Since your location says you stay in Hyderabad, this would be the perfect website for you: Driven - Hyderabad

Plenty of options to chose from - both two wheels and four wheels.

Happy motoring !

V12 told me to read your review about the Tiger. I think you have written this from a POV of a "Cog" inside the Tiger. Pretty damn awesome.

I had a similar incident as yours with my bike. Barring the fact that i did not fall. I just got stuck standing in another motorbike. Now when i think of it, the entire thing was funny. Just grumbled my way back home. I hate it when you get punished for no fault of yours.

I hope that you ride more and explore more. Enjoy the triple whine.

In the meantime, here's a video which i think is pretty cool. May be someday when i do own a Tiger, this is what i'd love to do.

A bit late to the party, but congratulations veerameti on the tiger

I had checked out the tiger 800 series at the local showroom recently, and it is one awesome bike!

Any specific reason why you chose the XCx model over the XRx model?

Ride safe.....

Hi Anand,

Sorry for the late response, reasons for choosing XCx over XRx were - WP Suspension adjustable, centre stand standard and aluminium sump guard versus plastic sump guard. Factoring in last two items as extra fitting, price was pretty close. Also spoked wheels against alloys, now I have seen even spoked rims getting bent. I have spent considerable amount to convert the spoked rims to tubeless type.

Thanks for the reply. Is the WP suspension on the XCx model much better as compared to the stock XRx suspension? Just asking in case you had a chance to test both out back-to-back on our bad Indian roads.

Yes the WP Suspension on XCx is much better than Showa on XRx...

@veerameti any chance I could speak to you One on One. In the process of buying a Tiger XRX. Wanted to get your 2 cents, overall on the bike.
