Some pics that were lying around in my camera for a long time, noticed this thread today.
This was at Nandhi Hills. I was at the ticket counter paying for my car, when I could hear thunder on an otherwise sunny day. I knew I was in for a treat.

I call them the Gods of Thunder.

P.S Have also been noticing an influx of SBKs in my neighborhood. Saw a hayabusa yesterday, a Gixxer today, an R1 a few days back. All come to a bajaj mechanic just opposite my house for regular servicing. Will try to capture pics if they come on an off day.

I've seen that Triumph quite a few times earlier and these 3 bikes are together most of the time. Last time I spotted them was at Hotel Mayura on the Bellur Cross road towards Hasan. That Triumph sounds mad.

"The Eagle has landed"... 2013 Honda CBR Fireblade Repsol edition has landed in Kochi. Watch this space for further news about the "Blade". Hope to ride it soon and post a review elsewhere in the forum. According to info fed given Honda officials, this is the first official Repsol edition Fireblade in India. Just finished the PDI today, hoping to get a Temp number and get her on the road tomorrow.

The RSV4 looks exotic. the Italians are not afraid at throwing in cuts, edges, complex curves. Japs feel too conservative in comparison.

Thanks for the info, I guess, I was fed incorrect info, missed it by 10 days then....anyways congrats to your friend on acquiring that beautiful piece of Japanese excellence.

Its not a 2010 R1 for sure, looks more like a 04-06 generation R1.

Huh. Nerves!

Definitely a pre-06 R1 that is. 07-08 ones had a slightly more vertical tail lamps and then from 09 onwards it was the crossplane.

This is the what the rear of a 10 bike would look like.
