They were always smart, now they're just probably scared to act dumb and let anything through in green exchange

here are pics of a ninja in trivandrum. Though there are many now, this is one of the first arrivals in trivandrum. The guy sitting on it is a fellow BHPian.

Nice catch. Hot looking night rod. Look at that rear tire. Sad that the rider is not wearing a lid. Hope he wears one soon before he learns the hard way.

These are display bikes from the showroom and i guess they were being taken round the block to make sure the battery does not drain out. I have to agree with both of you, the rider should have a lid on even if he is riding one house away. Some people just understand when they learn the hard way i guess.

The Showroom opening is this evening.

Yes same one. I guess it must be delayed as i was informed today is the opening. I am going for it .

I dont think they would have started deliveries as yet, I guess today they would deliver the bike to an owner.

Thats Firebladers bike and good to see her after a long gap on the streets. She is looking gorgeous.

A friend of mine was in the Lambo and they were returning from BKC. The car apparently is for sale.

I would have love to come to the opening, but work in office
The Valkayrie looks fabulous in real life and has awesome street presence.
I was lucky to be riding with her for almost 40 kms, on the highway

The Lambo sounds great and looks kewl too

Nice pics of the val and the suzi. Does honda have the expertise to service the val in india? An awesome looking machine... looks huge and the engine area is massive.
