Like me. That said, for the sake of fairness, I'd leave a link to his writing here - http://overdrive.in/features/buying-...-need-to-know/
I'm so happy I bought a Royal Enfield Himalayan instead of a Versys. It's easy enough to ride in the city, and yet it's wonderful on the open road, and feels like a much bigger bike. After reading this, I don't think I want to own a superbike in India

That's all that we need!! The number of horrific accidents of kids who took Scorpios or XUVs from Zoomcar and drove irresponsibly on the highway, would suggest that this is a trend we don't need. So far, it's only kids in families with more money than brains that die in superbike accidents. If the rental market comes up, you'll be able to add a few middle class kids to that group too.
