Exclamation Yamaha R1s and Honda CBRs

Don't have any pictures of any sorry, but I do have some questions. I'm going to be moving back to India soon from the States, and I really want a nice sportbike. I hear India has no market for these beasts and that I have to have one brought in myself. Is that completely true? If so, can I contact let's say a Yamaha or Honda dealer there to have an R1 or CBR brought in? Would they arrange that for me or do I have to make all the arrangements myself? Any help would be gladly apprieciated! Thanks!

Yup. Sad but true.

No chance of them helping you out in any way. You're on your own for this one.

I was in a similar situation as I wanted to bring my bike after I finished my studies, but there is just too much red tape and too many horror stories. If finance is not a problem, the simple way is to get in touch with some grey market dealer here and pay him to get your bike through customs.

Or else, just do what most of us end up doing, buy a "power" bike from here. A 150hp Pulsar sould be fine. Or is that 15 hp....

Someone asks about R1s and CBRs and u end up advising him to get a pulsar!! LOL.....
Like Rt said, if money aint a problem, I guess there are guys in Mumbai who get these machines..
Guess the Mumbai guys have some info on these!!!! Surely u'l get help from them to contact the right guys..
Long time back there was a post here of R1s for sale in mumbai(By domnic ??).. they all got sold within weeks...
So guess it wont be a problem to get one for about 6-7lks....

prices are dependant on:

whether imported as a complete bike or parts

these 2 factors can vary ther price by a few lakhs &may/may not get you into trouble with custom authorities
