Source of info is from The Hindu 14th june of this month, and i firmly believe that there is going to be an war on bigger cc bikes in the near future as Harley,Honda,Yamaha,Bajaj,Aprila and others are eyeing our booming Indian market.

sathya : harley is out now. they were looking at coming into india, but plans are on hold and most prolly they wont be coming. yamaha will be the first company to bring in big bikes (jan '08 onwards), followed by others

I am very surprised when all the Jap manufacturers are completely ignoring the naked bike category.. They are comparatively cheaper, have the same running gear as the sbk s, albeit lacking in the handling dept, but no plastics to deal with. As a matter of fact the FZ1 and the new Bandit kick some serious ***.. and the are a lot easier to ride in traffic.

But prabhuav, Yamaha, as they have declared, are bringing the bikes into India, not for sales numbers. but for brand image. And, they know they'll have better fan following with bikes like R1 and MT01 in their list (though they may not set the sales chart on fire)

I am reminded of this Billy Joel number that I heard some 25 years ago. It's called Vienna waits for you
Slow down you crazy child
You're so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you're so smart tell me why
Are you still so afraid?
Where's the fire, what's the hurry about?
You better cool it off before you burn it out
You got so much to do and only
So many hours in a day
I would add - dream on you crazy child

well i dnt think goldwing on indian roads will b a gud idea.. coz u all knw how the roads of india are.. after every rainy season it gets more worst & sum1 going on gud speed suddenly meets wis those big holes will eat the lower fairing of the bike....
if its launched thn i think it will b sumthng around 14-15 L coz goldwing here in dubai wid insurance & everythng gets abt 11 L indian price..
one guy in our group bought it this yr.. got gr8 handling .. crazy bike..
Well bikers keep ur fingers crossed & hope for sumthng gud.. which im doing frm yrs
