When asked about the time frame of the launch, the answer was "very soon".

Just love the Speed Triple. I'm quite sure they'll launch that.
dint you say that ,if it does not match Ninja 650R price ,then you and your friends are going for ninja then ? . Hope ninja's price becomes the benchmark for others to beat it .

I double that. If it becomes the benchmark price of bikes of same caliber to be launched in India. It would make so many dreams come true. Incl. my own to finally own a high end (if I can use that word) legitimate bike

Spotted these BMW's and the MV Agusta Senna Edition at Nandi hills on Sunday.

The Ducati Monster belongs to JVH. I had seen a lot of pics of the monster and was honestly unimpressed. What the bike does to you when you see it in the flesh is unexplainable. No wonder duc's are called Ferrari on two wheels.

I never said anything like that. I'm not a fan of anything other than inline 3 or 4's. Besides, I already have an inline 4 .

The Triumph's 3 sound insane with after market exhausts.

Oh man!! What a treat to the eyes. Wonderful pics Aditya. And yes the Duc's are indeed the Ferrari on 2 wheels. They simply look stunning.

Is it just me or are the BMW bikes pictured below really disproportionate & ugly?

Abhinav, most Beemers have the look, esp. the touring ones. They tend to concentrate more on functionality than on looks

Awesome clicks Aditya! For the first time, I saw so many BMWs in one place (apart from the showroom LoL) but have to say it was Augusta for me all the way. One has to see it in real to really appreciate it.

Funny nobody is talking about the Multistrada...

P.S - Hope you don't mind stealing a few pics from your kitty

Thanks Jayant. Actually the pics look very grainy, not sure why. Maybe because of the fog.

You can take the pics, i dont mind. Its on a public forum anyway and i have masked the plates too.

Saw this R1 today morning, however some how did not love the rear tire. Wish it was a huge one. My 2 cents.

Thanks for the pics Aditya. The front of the Hyosung GT650R especially the headlamps is quite similar to the Augusta! Here's a pic for reference.

A bit off topic though but this also seems like an example of how not to ride a bike like R1. I mean flip flops and not even a helmet!??? that's just wrong.

+1 on that Flip Flops & Helmet part. He looked like, he just woke up from his slumber and decided to ride the bike on the ORR.
Not just that Nikhil, you should have seen him after he took off from there. He pulled out his phone and was speaking on it with only one hand on the handle. Some people never understand what these beasts are capable of and a small error on your part and its all BANG-BANG-GONE.

I don't know if I am treading on some dangerous waters here but to me that guy has no respect for his life or the machine he rides. Its not a small sized commuter bike!!, although you shouldn't pick your phone even when your'e riding your bicycle I believe. A clear case of some people having all the moolah but no brains. I'm sorry but I am just appalled at the sight.
