The 12 lakhs is price including the 150% duty. (or whatever crazy number). Customs will use the original MSRP in order to figure out the depreciation. For example if you got a discount or reabate on your new bike in Dubai, they will still use full price.

With what? With the puny mopeds they churn with graphics straight from hell? (JS Version?? Gimme a break! John has left them citing "image differences")

What they need is NOT a 11 Lac R1 or MT. They need a affordable rice rocket like the Rx100, which would appeal to masses not just the classes.

Not to disagree with you madhokritesh but I just spoke to a senior official at Yamaha two days ago and they dont seem to have any idea of what i was talking about... i wonder what on earth is going on...bec i would LOVE to have an XJR 1300......which is a distant but real dream......

The YBR 250 is the frazer? Specs dont seem impressive, its just 20bhp from a 250cc block and that also single cylinder, what we need here is a Twin Cylinder, Mono Shock, bhp bike, anyone listening?

Hope they price is competitively, since it lacks rear discs and projector head lamps as seen in the 220 DTSFi
