Even I prefer Ducati over the japanese bikes but paying 50L in INDIA is something which I can't digest. It's absurd.

With 50L even if I have it, I'd get a R1, a Hayabusa, a CBR 1000RR, and maybe a truck to carry them all around !!!

Will ride 'em only when I find a road decent enough

Yep, Big Daddy. The bike in itself is a piece of art. Would, stand second in my list though. The MV Agusta F4 1000 Senna/Tamburini takes the crown for me

The blade is a good buy, but lots of miles to go before you get it in a compare it with the ducati.

@Scorch: i know you are a die hard Ducati fan. But then paying 50 lacks can get you a real sportscar or two or three sportsbikes.The bike ain't worth.


@YC.BALENO,
the desmo ain't the big daddy of superbikes.The busa of course is the big daddy. It already posseses 194 BHP and when kitted goes more than 200 BHP.The desmo cannot even think of beating a busa. BUSA ROCKZ!!

It is always personal choice buddy. I'd buy a MV or Duke over the busa. But tha doesn't by far mean i don't have respect for the bike. Busa, is always cherished since it was my first sbk. And will always find a place in my garage(If logic allows).

Don't be so ignorant
the big daddy(somehow) is MTT Y2K(heard of it)?
at fear of comparing oranges to apples--

The Desmo* can beat GSX-1300R in top end and acceleration(gsx's forte)
and at others, the 'busa isn't even in the same ballpark as desmo*

*Ducati Desmosedici RR

^^taking nothing away from the Big Suzie, just putting facts

I dont think Y2K is a bike, firstly, it has an engine out of a Helicopter or something, secondly it is american, who somehow lack taste in bikes, thirdly, well .. enough said.

i dont think any street bike can come near a desmo on a track, hence i rest my case, it is the big daddy. It is not just sheer topspeed which determines a bike.

I think we are going way off topic, lets get back to posting pictures of superbikes spotted in India.

Irrespective of the fact what engine it uses its bike nonetheless.

Just for info Y2K uses a Rolls Royce Allison Helicopter engine, and comes with a life time warranty.

somehow IMHO, a bike should have an engine made for a bike with all the six gears . Rest, to each his own !

@scorch-know that bro..
@baleno-budy, i'm not ignoring the desmo.but you the busa got acceleration of 0-100 @ 2.5 seconds. And the top whack is more than 320kph even though its limited to 299kph or 189mph. And you would agree that busa is regarded as the king of suprbikes and also the fastest bike in the world.

Being red doesn't mean it is a Ducati and being a cruiser doesn't mean it is a Harley Davidson.

Anyways, the bikes are Kawasaki ZZR 14 Ninja (red) and Suzuki M1800 Boulevard(white).

The bikes looks great, nice find nonetheless.

Recheck before you post in future.
