nandishpal: I'd love to hear it someday. I currently have the sound bytes of a V-8 m'cycle as my ring tone, but a screaming inline 4 too is music. I remember seeing and hearing a track-prepped Gixxer 600 ridden flat out, and it could have been a Formula 1 car to anyone who wasn't looking.

Nice pics, Manish. The stickers seem just about enough to give the bike a distinct look.

netchef, will we get to see a set of wheels in your garage anytime soon ?

Its a limited edition from Honda itself, the colors and the stickering. It even has a signed autographed from the man himself on the gas tank.

Its a CBR 600F4i till not so long ago it was still in production, lovely lovely sound too!

Manish how many terabites of pictures do you have, and do you have your ninjas scouting the streets everywhere. Hope DRI people dont hire you

Nitin: Sir, you cannot believe how desperate I get. I even dream bikes. Saw a Kwacker ZXR 900 advertised but got no response from the seller. It is old (99) but was cheap enough. Condition unknown, however.
Gosh. Is wishes were horses (BHP), some sainted aunt would go to her manufacturer and leave me a sinful amount of money.

Last bike I test rode was a Suzy 1200 ABS Bandit. Dated from 06 but was in immaculate condition. Too expensive for me and also not my style of ride- I prefer the aggressive crotch-rockets.

SIGH!

@netchef : I would rather you wait and save up the money you will end up spending on an oldie. Unless you arn't going to ride her so much or so hard

quickdraw: I know, but the call of the highway is relentless in my ears. Besides, these bikes are bullet proof -if looked after well of course. I've read reports of Gixxers running to 80K miles ALL of them ridden hard, and not a measureable change in piston/bore clearance, ring gap etc.

Absolutely agree with you!There's something about crotch rockets that makes riding a totally different experience. The Bandit's a pretty good bike too, and with ABS definitely a worthy ride.
Have any pics of the bike been posted on this thread?

Nitin: How does that ABS work? Are the front and rear brakes linked like the old Moto Guzzis?

No pics posted by me- but I think I did see some of a Bandit unless it was another website I saw them on. 5 speed, re-graphed engine puts out more torque and less sheer BHP. I think the top speed is 240Kmph.
Nice enough machine, but not enough BAD GUY. I prefer Howlin Wolf

Not too sure about that,Sir.I do know that the bike has a 310mm dual front disc brake with four piston calipers along with a 240mm rear disc and single piston caliper. Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) monitors wheel speed and matches braking power to available traction.

The only other Bandit I remember seeing here, is the one used in the movie 'Dhoom 2'. Sad part,is that its gathering a lot of dust somewhere in Bombay.
