Hey Manson, u know who you're talking to ??!!
Winneboy is probably one of the richest members of xbhp.com.
Why ? . . . . . . . because he 'claims' to own 4 SBKs - a R1, R6, GSXR & a CBR 1000 !!!!
He was still not staisfied so he posted a number of messages about how he desperately wanted to buy a CBR 400 !!!
And apparently he 'bought' one a couple of months back !!!!!!
Please correct me winnemax if I'm wrong and pardon me for telling everyone about your 'amazing' bikes.

Of course it goes without saying that we never got to see any of the bikes or even their pictures.

Sorry guys...I won't be picking on anyone here, but I have never even heard of an SLK 600 either. As far as the R6 goes - cheating death - reliable sources have told me that it comes for 6.5 -7 lakhs. So u could probably think it is 6-6.5 lakhs.

CHEERS

No way can you get a 'BRAND NEW' R6 with clean papers for less than 7 - 7.5 lacs.
If someone offers you one for less, either its meter has been tampered with / replaced or it has been imported in parts and then assembled here.
This is very prevalant in the southern ports. So be careful of bikes with such registration numbers.

Usually vehicles r imported only when an Indian comes back to India on TR. This is stamped on his passport and the bike is accompanied by custom clearance papers from the authorities stating this fact. Only then can the bike be registered with the RTO.

Now in the late 90s / early 2000 someone got an idea whereby he would buy the bike abroad, dis-assemble it there, import the parts to India and pay just 20% duty (that is applicable for motor vehicle parts) and then re-assemble the bike in India. These bikes would obviously not have any custom papers. They would be registered in MP or somewhere in the south where the RTO was not strict and easy to manipulate. Check this out
http://www.mid-day.com/news/city/200...mber/69982.htm

If a bike has been imported after 99/2000 be sure to carefully cross-check the papers and preferably go for bikes with MH registration.

From the article:
Quote:
“We have information of similar rackets being run in Cochin, Madhya Pradesh and other states,” said another officer.
Cochin??? Please I dont see any superbikes here... This is crap!!!! Atleast the Cochin part.. Or may be the Cochin ports are being used to get the bikes from outside and move it to B'lore etc....

ROTFLMAO "received a tip-off"! I mean, these bikes are kept in their glass lined showrooms open for all to see! Man, I'm glad our custom's officials are so "aware" of whats going on.

BTW, does anyone know if these bikes were auctioned off finally? The dealers probably bought bck their own bikes for a song anyways and are now back in business.

Well addix, it's been happening for quite some time on xbhp & has started recently on team-bhp !!
But then we all need some humour amid our 'serious' discussions, dont we ?!

@ Vinsanity - That is precisely the reason why they choose ports that do not have much traffic to unload the stuff. So that they can remain incognito ! Besides the authorities at these places are easy to 'manipulate'.

@ Rtech - 'looking' at a bike it is not possible to conclude whether it has been imported legally or otherwise. How the bikes got back to the dealers is obvious . . . . . by paying 'fines' !!

But never heard of Cochin ports being used to get sports bikes(like they are going to tell me)..
But, come on atleast someone here should have bikes.. But u never see any here... Atleast some new bike should be around.. But nope, havent seen/heard of any..
One new harley(it was there for display @ B'lore the drag) is in town... The same guy fitted the K&N on Kphilip's pulsie..... He got it from Dubai...
