should'nt it be more expensive from a dealer, with their margins involved? since the recent impounding of bikes due to lack of papers and proper duties not being paid due you think it is safe buying bikes from dealers.

Quite true. With the risk involved in buying a bike from any other private seller, the dealer would surely have clean papers. I'm sure that would even help the resale value too,but only to a certain extent.

buying the bike from an official dealer would help you claim depreciation on the bike. clean papers and would be a hassle free experience. what i meant was the private dealers of bikes and second hand bikes. there you would not have a hassle free experience.

And the prices of grey imports would drop a bit now as well. Which would affect the prices of the used bikes, which in turn is good for us who can't fork out the moolah for a new one.
Well Put Rtech exactly my thoughts: The only light I see in this dark tunnel is used 600+s !!might!! be cheaper to buy now. Sadly finding a good bike with clean papers would be tough.

Sadly . I repeat!!!! A.n.y.t.h.i.n.g over 6Lacs for a bike in the next 1-3 years in India WILL Flop.

SuperBikes are mainly for enthusiasts which is a limited target audience. If it were 6Lacs or lesser, middle class lesser mortals would be able to put a loan and pick up one. However now its going to be only for the Upper crust who could buy it under their business name or the sorts.

And the only way it can sell for about 6Lacs is if some manufacturer makes proper plans to make it right here at home and may be export it abroad as well.

Maybe we can hope Suzuki / Honda............. Ahhwww forget it ...............

Actually my response to this news should just be 75 of these -

11.5 Lacs is very expensive.
Rajiv Bajaj once said in an interview, that Bajaj has the technology to develop engines upto 600cc. I think its high time, he does that and put it as an alternative to the R1 . Obviously it is a bad comparison . But I think still a lot of us who dream of a superbike but can't afford an R1 would happily go for a Bajaj 600 .
