She'd done just 350kms, so it'd be better if we evaluate her prowess once she's run in properly, it never went above 135kmph. That been said, the R, as ever was nothing short of awesome!

How's the Fz fairing?

We took her out for a short spin, as we had a track day setup for Royal Enfields at panagad. She was just a dream. Just completed 2000 kms in one month and 23 days!!

They sound like proper I-4's once the revs fly.

Wow a sport touring ST1100/Pan European in Mumbai. Good find //M as its a very rare sighting on Indian roads.

They have sold couple of BMW K1600GTLs in Mumbai at a whooping Rs 35 lacs. Anybody got pics of it on the road? (not showroom ofcourse)

They sound line muscle cars even at high revs. You should hear them with after market pipes.
