Ah yes! Thanks for the info Navpreet. Nevertheless, the pic capturing the guy holding on to the tank is like he is holding on for dear life. Since the 2nd pic shows that there was no rear grab rails etc., it justifies the fear of the pillion if there was any!

Abhinav,
Irrespective of whether the bike has the grab rail or not, always makes sense to balance yourself against the tank. One of the main reasons why girls with rings are not allowed onboard pillion seat

Check the Super Cars and Imports in Bangalore thread. You have the unhindered shot of the BMW.

And it says Motormind which is the company that has done the paint job/wrap job probably.

I ve seen that red busa in person and i also had couple of friends in tow. Unanimous decision , it did not go too well with anyone of us. But if it works for the owner , all good.

No helmet on a Busa? I thought people would've understood the importance of safety gear after Azhar's son's demise.

Anyway, for anyone who wondered how an R15 looks(rather pales) in comparison to a Hayabusa!

@ black12rr - Thanks for the link mate. I was wondering(grey) as much. A limited edition from what i gather from the link. Looks nice but the helmet less rider looks better , NOT.
