First of all, it was really a good thread indeed; enjoyed the SBK landscape in the India after spending couple of hours surfing here. I'm glad for all SBK owners. No wonder, thread got an excellent rating from me. Keep it up!

Following are couple of 'inputs' from my end:

It looks Ravishing, it has definite value, and it has a pedigree, but is it still worth the pricetag?
Yes, very much

Overpricing is subject to the insane Indian duties and other formalities. As I wrote on another thread, people shouldn't buy very high-end SBK or Car in India because of that factor (at least for some time). I thought one shouldn't make comments such as - why someone should buy? Because very product has its own market segment! Say, I've bought one for $30,000 plus in 2005 in California and am very happy with it (a friend of mine some time ago told me that same model costs 3 million INR plus in India but don't know how much it costs now). Same with my Cars in US too. Why all that, remember Indian iPhone launch price compared to the US (even though it comes with an AT&T contract)? or an Intel Core i7-870 Processor price? I've seen a lot of such args. in India right from my kid age; starting with a color TV (Sony vs other Indian brands!). Anyway, such comparisons makes no sense at all.

You were spot on! People who make light statements against Italian Engineering must watch this TV episode:

Discovery - Mega Factories - Ferrari (because lot of hand effort goes into Ducati too).


BTW, my crown goes to:

#1 Ducati 916 Senna
#2 MV F4 Augusta Senna

One more on Senna name, for Super Car lovers as well, which I love it a lot even today!

Honda NSX, 1994 model (Ayron Senna himself contributed in this car's key Chasis development)

What kind of work do these guys do to afford a 1198 in India?

I always wonder. Do they have sugar daddy's sugar mama's ??
I got your dilemma! I don't know about here but I saw (and know) a good number of youth in Hyderabad who flaunt their parents money, which was actually earned by their parents by various dubious means (frauds, cheats, contractors, politicians, filmy walas etc).

You meant that in India or globally? If that's on global scale, I don't think so

There can definitely be two Konica Minolta replica CBR-600RR in India, be it Bombay or Hyderabad or Bangalore.

i was standing right outside my house talking to my friend about a Hayabusa which came to our colony a few days ago and how i missed clicking its pics, suddenly i hear this unusually loud sound of a sports bike......i turned around and saw a 10-12 year old boy riding a Harley Davidson Sportster! The boy was followed by his elder brother who owns the bike!!
sorry for the bad quality of the pics!

Although I am not a HD affectionado, I like the aggressive looks of this flashy sportster. Ideal size for our country's traffic. But the rider has taken the word 'easyrider' to an altogether new level...
(Sometime back I had a pic of a dhoti clad indian riding a HD Fatboy in Dubai, this pic should qualify for a close second prize)

+1, couldn't agree more. The Nightster is among my favorite Sportsters, but I'm not digging this picture one bit.
