That's a crazy thing from xbhp. Sunny is doing some promotion again for Videocon and Ducati and some more and got 8 Ducati Monsters and 1 1198S to go around. Once the deal is done, sell them off and make money. Or whatever. Crazy ways of making bikers go crazy for nothing. I'm glad I'm no more active on that forum.

PS: Others, who are both there and here may disagree and it's okay. Let's not start a flame war here.

Saw one of xbhp's Monster at the GK-1 M Block market in Delhi on last Sunday. Way too plastered! It somehow just did not look very good. Wonder if it was the stickering.

Very funny thing to buy a bike worth a million rupees and then buy a 1000 ka Vega helmet and ride it.Now a days people value their heads too lightly.Or is it that this particular Businessman/Magazine owner has little value for the people who are actually helping him build the hype so that he can sell Magazines.

Sad state of affair india has.Even today they will resort to anything to cut costs.

If I am correct , the 8 bikes are on carnet by DUCATI and needs to be returned I guess . But I agree ,they could have geared up a bit more .

They do ride with a DSG jacket on. Not that DSG is awesome, but I was glad to see them wearing some protection as against the usual.
The bike did not look very good. For one, it was very dusty. They should have wiped it down at least!

They have Indian Sponcers so DSG and Vega would be the best.
Sunny the Xbhp Super-Mod was wearing a R-Jay's helmet, that was given by Bachoo Motors.

I suppose only one guy was wearing vega helmet, the others were on Sparx and Rjays, all of them were wearing riding jackets and gloves, and otherwise also xbhp does a good job in promoting safe riding and wearing proper gear.

There was a Road Safety Awareness Bike Rally this morning in Mumbai from Nariman Point to Bandra. Lots of Superbikes had taken part in the rally. My brother who also took part told me that there were atleast 25 big bikes. There were also a huge number of Indian bikes are part of the parade as well. Members pinnacle and insaneroller also took part. I guess we'll have some pictures here soon.

Yeah I know. Kartik didnt carry a camera either, but I saw a couple of shots in the papers today. Great turnout I must say.

BTW, thought id share some pics of the Ducatis from the Chennai leg of their tour since no one else has covered it.. was rather dull here in chennai compared to the reception they got in other cities..
Cheers!!
