Exactly my thoughts. Looks like an awareness rally and makes even more sense to stress on wearing protective gear while riding.

Its not an awareness rally at all. Its just a rally sponsored by Jimmy Mistry for all the bawa's to get together every year. Only bawa's are allowed.

Default Any Information about this Bike

I came across this advertisement in Bikez. It is Kawasaki ZZR 400 1997 model, but the picture shown is ZX4R. Does anybody have any information regarding this bike. The address of the advertisement is :
97 Kawasaki ZZR 400 for Sale at Bikez Free Motorcycle Classifieds

Of course there was. This is the one with a single exhaust unlike the one which Rtech had with dual exhausts. This one seems to be re-painted. It usually has ZXR 400 on it. This was the one 400 sold till 2000.

Kumar Ranjan: That ZX 4R has been around, its been on sale since a long time by differrent people and has extremely shoddy papers, i think some MP regn. It has also been repainted by a pune based mech a year ago.
This is certainly not something your friend could possibly want after having waited for a good bike.

Btw, some candy while i dropped my bike at Tony's this afternoon.
Green ZX 12R (quite a sight even when opened up)
07 Black with bronze wheels CB400 VTEC
03 Silver/blue BUSA
07 Red CBR 600RR

The Rally is organised by the Parsi Resource Group and it is organised once a year. It is done basically to spread awareness about the community and so on....The routes are specially cordoned off for the rally and there is a slow pace to the rally.

I am no expert but i feel the cans are heat insulated. so the outer portion remains cool. I have sat on the bike at the showroom in Dubai when it had just launched. so dont have on road knowledge of it.

Apart from the heat shields, the MT-01 also has an exhaust fan under the bike.
