Try contacting BHPians Ice Mari and Scarlet. They deal with Yamaha R1s and R6s respectively.

U can speak to Joe (Joes racing) - he is one of the biggest in South India. If you want his number, send me a mail at bunnypunia@gmail.com (cant type in his number here for obvious reasons)

A brand new 2007 Zero milage R1 should set you back by around 9-9.5 lakhs

second hand at 3-4l ???? which year one? For R1's you need to stretch your budget to get a nice piece.

You are right. The bike costs about 4.5 - 5 lakhs on actual Indian currency conversion. Close to about USD 12000. But many import duties and other costs get added to the actual price by the time it reaches your hands. Superbikes sales in India are mostly handled by the grey market. Try your luck with the company directly or through a known person in countries like Singapore, Malaysia etc. If no luck, all the best with the grey market.

Yeah, if u want it for 4L, u've gotta go and live in the US
Even a R1 in bad condition would cost u more than 4.
R1s were launched around 98 and even that model would cost u around 4.5-5 depending on the condition.

Even if they do come, it's not gonna be in the near future.
And even then, it would still cost u more than 9 as they're not gonna be built here but brought as CBUs.
