The video does no justice to the shorty's. You have to listen to them in person. My friend had the same Hotbodies on his K5. It can get irritating after sometime. Here are some pictures of the shorty's.

Yeah, my friend got the Hotbodies for 7K used. That's not John's ex bike. John's bike has a Blueflame pipe.

WOW awesome Quickdraw. I can completely imagine where that grin is coming from. How about some sound (not yours, the bikes )

The bike comes factory fitted with Quad Arrow pipes. And trust me when I say this guys I have ridden every kind of bike but there is no road going production bike which sounds like this (except maybe the Desmo RR) I'll try to find a video of the F4.

One of the best sights in the world according to me.

Arrow Suzuki bikes...

Spotted these two bikes displayed at the Total Mall on Airport road today. Hayabusa and Intruder... both with a price tag of 14lakhs.

I was standing near the bikes for some time waiting for someone and I was looking at the reactions of the people entering the mall and seeing the bikes. The bikes drew a nice smile on quite a few faces...

More than the Hayabusa, most people seemed to be fascinated by the Intruder. The acres of chrome seemed to draw people across all age groups, from either sex.

Interestingly, right in front of the bikes, there was an Audi TT on display... the crowds were more enamoured by the bikes than the car!

I doubt that, Shankar. I've seen some tall guys riding the Intruder, and it looked just the same. Might be the posture.
