@//M: cool pics man. this place, barista cafe in Lavelle road, seems to be a hit among sbks.

@Manish: the 650 comes only in Lime green, aint it? so it seems this black one has been brought it before.

You bet. Spotted two Busa's, an Intruder, two black FZ-1's, a Ducati Monster, a Harley Superlow, a Buell 1125R, a Yam R1 and the Busa with that fat tyre, all within a span of some 2-3 hours.

EDIT- Not only SBK's, a hit with the town's Ferrari's, Bentley's and Hummer's too. Thanks to Ducati and Harley showrooms, UB City, Shell petrol bunk and Bangalore Club, all of these nearby.

Having spend quality time in Delhi, I can safely say that there are a huge number of SBK's in Delhi, but spotting them is very difficult. But in Bangalore spotting supercars and superbikes are easier because the owners brave it to take out their rides on a daily basis.

Meanwhile a crappy pic of a Ducati Monster 796, again in Lavelle Road, Bangalore.

Guess its becoming more of a lifestyle statement these days in Blore, where you see quite a lot of fellas doing it on a regular basis. Have seen many Baby Ninjas (both black n green) in the early morning peak hour trying to outpace sundry crowd...

This is an old gen 650R which sports the 250R headlamps.
