Sorry for being slightly off-topic.Just a quick one.Now that we are discussing about these bikes coming in India from all over, just got this thought in my mind,the instrument console on these bikes would be in Mph right?

I remember reading this somewhere that in all the new bikes with the digital screen, all one has to do is to put a different chip and one can also get put on sticker's for the analogue console bikes.Is that how it is?

One of my colleague has a budget of 3.5 and he is looking for any 600cc bike (No single seater please) . Please let me know if you come across any.

There is nothing like a single seater (atleast for poroduction bikes), its usually a rear seat cowl that replaces the stepup seat to make the bike look sporty.
I will keep an eye out.

On these new bikes with LCD's, you just have to press one button to toggle between mph and kmh.

I think this white busa used to be blue before. I remember a blue busa that had these exhausts in Bangalore.
