Naah, the D-EV-I-L on my Thunderace at full chant is a different league, telling ya!
Btw, Manish how old is this picture? The Black-Silver colour scheme was for the 96-97 bikes.

Then it is the same black & silver bike I had been told about back in 2007.
The owner had posted pictures on the Thunderace thread a few months ago, is that the same bike?

manson: I've never heard the Devil- Brit brand IFRC? Vance & Hines used to be big, but seems to have lost its cachet. Now it's Akrapovic- at least in Bangalore.

Devil is a French brand Vance and Hines is back with a bang for sportsbikes.

Oh lovely. First V&H I heard was all metal and on a Honda 350-four. Gorgeous snarl with a hint of crackle and rasp.
Anything on radar as far as Kerker goes?

My CBR had a Vance & Hines drag exhaust on it. Still, one of the best I have ever heard.

Kerker was bought by Supertrapp.

manishasrani: Damn. Must have been a nasty impact. The chap who crashed his Busa while riding with us, well the Busa looked in similar condition, if not worse. Actually, come to think of it, it was worse off. The engine had bust open while this Blade seems to have hers intact.

Yes it was all over the news, the Taj Expressway on Delhi which was a favourite haunt for Superbikes is now not open for them anymore. My guess was when this happened I think it must be a bad tankslapper or something.
