I got a couple of snaps on my whatsapp. A superbike has been imported to India at the cost of 10CR . It is believed to be bought by the son of a MLA in UP. I shall post the pictures in some time. Any Idea? It has a sticker on the fuel tank which says INDIAN

No Indian, production or auction, has ever sold for this amount. No bike, in fact. In auctions, maybe 5 Cr at best for some classic if I remember from the early 20th century.
Some whatsappy Chinese whisper inflation at play.
Also, even if some benchmark for that amount has been set, I doubt a UP mla's son is that kind of connoisseur.

Are you sure of the 10 crore figure, because that would make it the world's most expensive bike (Even surpassing those auctioned, which is about 852,000 Dollars = Around 6 Crore). I think the figure must be closer to 10 Lakhs than 10 Crore.

Is the bike you referring to white in colour? If yes then it's not for 10cr. It's actually for 21lacs.
Whatsapp and its gross ability for fake forwards.

The message I received said that its imported from Dubai and an 'enthusiast' son of an RTO was the importer.
Might've gold in the tanks and body panels that could've led to the 10Cr price tag, no?

Thanks SChakravarthy. This is the one. In fact the message I received also carried the names of the MLA and his son. I should post that in the next couple of hours.

The motorcycle in question is not for any UP MLA but going to far suburbs of Mumbai (Virar). I'm not too sure about the price, but should be approx 27 lakhs ex. showroom Mumbai.

Love these old school Hondas. Built like a tank, and sans electronic tomfoolery. Any idea if this was a carb'd or injected?

Why would one need to buy an Indian from outside of India if they've already set shop here?!

OT: Not in this particular case, but these "Forwarded as received" messages on whatsapp these days are doing more bad than good.
