A close friend got 08 R1 for 8.5L delivered in Delhi
he could have got it for less if he had negotiated a bit.
I forgot the name of the Dealer.
Without the delivery charges he would have got it for~8L

Well let me make a statement here.
"No bike can be imported into india properly by any individual or any other company other than the parent company or a company licensed by the parent company(bike company)"

I had researched extensively before i bought my bike.Bike import is completely banned.The ones on TR which people say are legal are legal only if they are sold after 2 years after they are imported into the country.thats what the customs rules say.

Its all about who can bribe the officials more and get the bike cleared better.
Have you goten any bike papers checked by the Customs head in mumbai.I have.The former head was a family friend to us.i had gotten a few papers checked by him of bikes which i was looking to buy before i bought this bike.
the statement made by him was similar.who can bribe the officials more and make it look like a legitimate TR bike.
All the dealers who say that their bikes are legitimate do the same thing.All of them.there are some who import the bikes in parts and register them as ominis.
Now with the relaxation of rules yes the import of 800cc and above bikes is permitted but its clearly written in the rules that there are certain documents which are needed.now these documents are only available with the bike manufacturing company and are only given to authorised distributors.
Also another fact is stated that bike import is only allowed from the company of origin.that is all jap bikes come from Japan and Not Thailand as it is in all cases in mumbai.
there is not one bike which has come from japan into india.

Oh yes this applies to all bikes and bie importers in india.Its all about which bike is made to look more legal than the other.

No further discussions on this please.or else they'll find our addresses from here and sieze our bikes.

Ok then how and why is Yamaha getting the bikes from Australia?

The grey market bikes are coming in from Singapore, not Thailand.

The greay market bikes come from both Singapore and Thailand. Thailand used to be the preffered location but now more bikes are coming in from Singapore.

Probably they had an export surplus in Australia.

They are 13.75 on road in Bombay. No finance on the bikes, you have to pay full cash and buy them. I was told there is a third "Titanium" colour as well. The booking amount is 1L and the bikes will be delivered in Jan.

Guys whats your take on the Suzuki Intruder which was just launched? Any word on how the bike is and what the price is? What if this bike isb rought in by a private importer? I believe they bring it in as spares and then assemble it here? I'm sure it'll work out cheaper!

Its one crazy bike. The things so big it just doesent end and from the looks of it seems to be unmanagable.But the moment u swing a leg over all that bulk is lost and the bike litrally transforms itself.I dont think i need to mention about the kind of power this behemoth puts out.1800 cc, 129 PS and ford ikon TDCi rivalling 160 Nm of torque gives u a shove you better be vary off.Insane acceleration, a hanging on for dear life-200 plus km/h top speed doesent mean she's a handful in traffic.She's equally at home puttering around in third at 20-30 km/h.i could go on and on and on.Aaah im in Love.!!!..here is me at the khambataki ghats

Super photograph! - I can just imagine what the dude on the commuter bike behind you is thinking!
Nice description too. How easy is it to maneuver these bikes in case you get caught in traffic?
