Besides, this graphic scheme is very close to the FZ8's anniversary edition as Nikhil has rightly pointed out. I have asked my dealer to find out, lets hope I get good news!
Come guys lets put an end to debate abt the graphics, here are some more pics, with the graphics on the tank. The bike is the new 2012 anniversary edition. The tailpiece is matte black as well. Kerala is also getting its fair share of super-bikes, a new 2012 Yamaha r1 is abt to hit roads as well. I believe its going to Trivandrum.

Nikhil,
Apologies if this post is not to your taste the white cheeks makes it look very plasticky...something like the Hyosung Naked's cheeks. But yes this is far more refined to look at though

Hey ku69rd....just needed to ask...is that you who had posted a pic of a group of FZ1's and a Yam MT01. If so are all the FZ1's based in Bangy? My bro will bring his bike to Bangy eventually, so just needed to find some riding partners. Could you help us out?

hey no worries on that front, we have a FB group and he would get to interact with all FZ owners across India, currently we have 12 people in there and your brother could be the 13th one
Do pass my congratulations...

Couple of pics of a Harley 883 and Buell 1125CR. Spotted these almost a month back in Bangalore.

To be specific, most of the hotties on wheels in B'lore, are spotted right in/near the Shell bunk in VM road!

You got that right. With big CC comes more CC of petrol too! :P
And most of the hotties on legs in Bangalore are spotted outside the petrol bunk!
