I do not know whether this is the right thread to post these pictures. If not, I request the moderators to move it to the appropriate thread.

A friend of mine had apparently spotted this motorbike in a Honda showroom in Chennai. From the looks of it, this looks like a motocross bike which can be used for off-roading purposes. Is this the Honda CRF250L? Is Honda (or Kawasaki ?) already planning a competitor to the just-launched Hero Impulse?

It would be great if someone can throw some light on this.

Its not a Honda, its an Altius Scimitar 670 and its a diesel bike.

Nice catch.

Well how ironical can it get? Honda is not launching any diesel cars where in matters most -- Indian market. And here they have a diesel bike. Strange indeed.

^^There is one in yellow color too, Performance racing store guy owns it. IIRC it was the replacement for his highly pimped up R1 and the S1000R is also going the same way.

This is during the supercar event where the rider had taken the bike onto the sea link too along with the cars.

It is indeed Bahrain registered temporary import, the bike is here thru Carnet. If my understanding is correct the bike produces in excess of 220 hp. Freakishly loud Akra full system and PC5.

Were bikes allowed on the sealink on that particular day or the rider got some special permission from the authorities?
