I like the two-piece integration of the saree guard though.

So much better than the likes of Ninja 650 or CBR 250.

That front number plate bracket looks prohibitively hideous. Execution could have been so much better in terms of design.But truth be told there are not many places on the front end where the plate can be mounted.

That number plate bracket has to be one of the ugliest things I have seen on a bike. They could have really tried a bit harder.

Where are you ridding from? I ride very often with a group of my friends all on Litre bikes and most of the highways are more than good enough to ride at high speed safely. Also out of Bangalore, you have options to go on twisty roads, straight high speed highways. Also most superbike riders I know (including me) don't even take their bikes out unless going on a highway and never in the city, so I don't get how you call all superbike owners attention seekers?

Manson made a good point, it is never the machine that causes a accident. In India like every other country there are some things you need to be aware of and ride accordingly. Ridding safely is upto the rider - I see more accidents with guys showing off on a Duke 200 than a guy with a litre class bike.

That number plate bracket would be the first one to go as soon as one gets the bike! Hideous contraption! Most busa's i have seen have number as a sticker on the front bumper

Totally agree with you. Our roads are not the best of places to ride superbikes.
Only if each state had a track we would be sorted.

On the other hand this busa pricing has opened up the used bikes market. Iam already seeing 2010 busa going for 9.75ish rather than the 10.50 that they demand.

Default Re: Suzuki starts local assembly of Hayabusa. Price - Rs. 13.57 lakh

I am an experienced Rider and understand bigger litre bikes need more attention to skill and patience and control on them when riding in Indian cities. I have not been riding since couple of years prior to getting my car.

I like Suzuki Bikes more often compared to any other manufacturer. Be it looks or performance and my taste of styling of a bike. I dont have much options in 600-900CC in India. Though the price bracket for 600-800cc in India is mostly around 12-14L, I feel its rather better to buy a Liter bike than shelling almost same amount of money for bikes less than 1000cc. The 600-800cc bikes in India arent comfortable enough as I have had a chance to drive them around through couple of friends. They are more of Track bikes than City use bike.

My Priority is as below:
- Should be comfortable to ride even if it is used everyday.
- should be easily serviceable and change of parts should not be much of headache.
- I consider resale value as well so I think more of a good hit model than buying something that I may have to regret.

I have few questions..

1. Is it a must once must have owned or has drove a 600-800cc to understand the liter bikes? I know of few friends who never owned 600 or 800cc bikes but they drive their litre bikes lot better and are more knowledgeable.

2. Pros/cons for daily use - is Naked better or Supersport/faired bikes ? in terms of maintenance too ?

3. I have plans of buying either a Used GSX1000RR or Hayabusa, what would be permissible budget which can be considered a good buy ?

4. I am planning to keep the bike atleast for couple of years (3 max) considering the resale value is it good to buy New and how long to be kept if we are not to lose more value on resale ?

5. Pros/Cons of buying Used/New ? My apprehension is if used bike is bad then also I am losing more money even if I buy it for less + the head ache of fixing things in the bike.

6. Any checklist to refer to for buying used superbikes in India ? What to look for and look out for ?

7. Finally any learning schools in Bangalore or nearby to hone skills for riding superbikes ?

Please direct me to any relevant or helpful posts. I tried searching may be I didnt get the relevant results.

I'm not sure which all bikes you've ridden earlier, but if you are at least used to the power of bikes like RD 350 or Duke 390, it just might be a tad easier.

Alternatively, you can rent a 600-800cc bike from one of the rentals in Bangalore to get an idea of the kind of power they make and how judiciously you need to use your right wrist.

If I were you, I'd pick a naked for a daily use. Much less headache while parking; attracts less attention and lesser plastics to worry about. Not to mention, the seating is much more comfortable for daily use.

Depends on the year of manufacture of the model. Dan has, for example, given a ballpark figure for a 2010 Hayabusa.

The Indian used superbike market is still not as organized as, say the four wheeler market. So, it is difficult to say as such. But, if you know your bike or have someone who can inspect it, I'd always advise a pre-worshipped example.

Rent a big bike for a few days. See if you like the tandoor between your legs while riding around town. Then come to a decision. Because once you put down your money, there's no turning back.

Maruti Suzuki handholds Suzuki Motorcycle in India.
Quote:
They (Suzuki Motor Corporation and its management) recognise the success of Maruti Suzuki. They hope we will also reach a large scale in future. We wish to make a strong foundation in India
Plans to harness the strengths of Maruti Suzuki. The key initiatives include appointment of several Maruti Suzuki dealers as sellers of Suzuki two-wheelers and increasing the base of common component suppliers between the two companies.

Quote:
As a conscious effort, we are trying to get good Maruti Suzuki car dealers on board to sell our two-wheelers. Many of them are excited to sell our superbikes like Hayabusa
Quote:
Same set of vendors (who supply to Maruti Suzuki) can be used for many components to bring costs down
R C Bhargava, chairman of Maruti Suzuki -
Quote:
Both the companies are promoted by Suzuki. We have a much longer experience of the Indian market. We can help them (two-wheeler business) to the extent it does not impact the interests of our company and its shareholders. They can get advantage of our bargaining strength for raw materials.

Suzuki Hayabusa assembly line in India,

Quote:
Currently it takes ten hours to assemble the ‘Busa in India. It could be faster, but Suzuki has chosen to take things slow, and layer quality checks upon quality checks to make sure things are done right. It takes four workers and two supervisors to complete the assembly. The vehicle check is then conducted by an operator and a supervisor. Material handling also involves a supervisor overseeing two operators

2017 Hayabusa deliveries have commenced in India, with the first bike delivered to a customer in Delhi. Colours for 2017 are Blue, White and I guess Black (couldn't find pics of the black bike) with different graphics (strips running over the the headlight, tank and cowl).

My personal favorite is the Pearl Vigor Blue shade.
