Nice to see those super bikes in Kerala.

@ Foby:- Used to see one Intruder in Trichur town regularly. I believe its the same one.

Checkout the aftermarket tyres Hayabusa
both the Busa and Ducati got some serious exhaust notes
OT: Were you the guy in the i20 with an expensive ICE setup in the display space opposite the bikes?

Cool Re: Superbikes spotted in India

This is my Honda Varadero XL1000VA adventure tourer. Heavily accessorised with after markets. Snaps taken a few weeks back, on the way to Mahabaleshwar.

Mate,
She looks every inch a proper tourer. Have noticed that the panniers and top boxes are from Givi. Did you procure them in Mumbai or did you import them? If you did procure them from Mumbai please do share the details.

Pretty sure with this setup you can sustain yourself for atleast 15 days of touring. Good Stuff

Also would the side case pannier foul with rear passenger's legs?

Congrats on a beautiful steed. Very good choice for 2-up touring in India.
I guess the yellow triangle stickers on the V46 is from Twisted Throttle (GIVI bags & crash guard vendor)

Ride safe.

Ram. I saw your despoine in flesh when we were standing at the signal. I was a pillion with Anku. Must agree that she does look sweet.

By the way can you post the pics of the orange 10R.

I could not get the Givi box or panniers in India - so I imported them. The pannier-rack of is custom-designed for the Varadero, so the panniers do not touch the legs of the pillion rider. The Givi topbox is 46 litres and each pannier is 35 litres, so there is enough space for an extended road-trip.

Hi Haroon, I got quite a lot of stuff from Twisted Throttle and you're right about the stickers Here is the list of after-markets on the bike:
* Hyperpro suspension lowering kit (she is a TALL bike)
* Stebel Nautilus Compact Horn
* Akrapovic exhausts
* KN filter
* Givi Top Box and Panniers
* Gel Backrest for topBox
* SW Motech Crashguard
* LED brake and signal lighting
* SW Motech lighter-charging socket
* Barkbusters heavy-duty hand-protectors
* MRA Varioscreen windshield
Other additions in the offing include the Denali LED night-lamps, GPS mount.

Varaman,
Thanks for the update, have you ever ridden with full load? Does it change the vehicle behavior on road? Cornering ability/braking distance? Apologies if we are going Did search but apparently you do not have any ownership thread on this bike

Mods: Can you please merge this Post with other one. Forgot to hit the Quote+ button.

MK, Yup, driven with full load several times. Yes, it does affect the braking distance as well as the agility of the bike, but only marginally - maybe because I am so much at home with the bike, I am used to this and it does not affect the enjoyment of the ride. Riding with panniers means that you need to be conscious of the increased profile of the bike, especially when overtaking or when negotiating narrow gaps - just a matter of habit, I guess. As far as speed is concerned, I have done over 160kmph quite often with full load and it is a breeze. The bike is very torquey as well as fast - and has telescopic shocks in the front as a 40-setting adjustable rear shock as well as a rebound damper setting... all in all, very comfortable to ride 10 to 12 hours a day and I have done this quite often.

... and I am 55 years old, so if I find the bike comfortable for long rides, you canwell imagine how good she is for touring

Varaman,
Believe 55 is after all just a number, your passion is more than sufficient to undermine that fact
Hopefully will bump into you one of these days, any plans of you making a trip south on your mammoth?
