Wow! That's a nice co-incidence. I've seen Kawasaki ZZR1400's in Bangalore. One on Alexandria Street in Richmond Town and the other near Lalbagh West Gate in Basavanagudi. Anybody caught those? Anyway, Manish, how do you travel? Are your hands always on the camera and never on the wheel or the handlebar?!

Saw this while driving down to Delhi.

No plates, helmet cam, loads of luggage, and he posed for the photo and then vroomed away. Seemed to be a foreigner.

Seems its a Yamaha Tenere 660.
Did you mean no plates in the front? Yes, in many countries bikes dont require a plate in the front.

Could not find any plates anywhere. Whoever this guy is, seemed to be on one very long tour.

No mention of the gixxer 600 or the zx-6 so far but Triumph is launching their bikes here soon and they have a 675 in their line up. Will update more on Sunday.

Daytona 675 is the bike to have, along with 750. Couldn't resist posting this link
2011 Supersport Shootout IX Track - Motorcycle USA

Please keep us updated S6. And please any info on CBR-600F would be highly appreciated.

Would like to see the likes of Honda CB 600F, Yam FZ6 and Z750 more than the track machines. And hope Triumph does not have only 675 in their kitty...Speed Triple Nine anyone?

Woah! This is awesome news!!!
Will we see the Bonneville launched in India? How are these guys looking to price it? Will it be a CKD operation to keep costs in check or are they going for the premium brand image?

Straight6, your messages of R6 launch, Triumph launch, CBR600 launch etc are making my heart skip a beat - Please please give us some good news on Sunday.
