I've seen that, but it's more like a 'teaser'
How about some closeups and allround pics ?

why is there a power comparison goin on between a 400 and a comet , doesnt that seem point less

and even if u consider in terms of money ... comet will cost u 1.8 lacs ( brand new )
and a 400 would cost u 2.5-3 lacs (second hand)

and if u compare the power of a inline 250 ( any) to a comet , the comet burns the roads anyday . i can say this because i have previousll owned a yamaha FZR250 the power was totally stupid.

the reason i started a poll between a 2.5 lakh imprt and a comet is because the comet is the best that the indian 2-wheeler market has to offer at the moment and a decent 400 is a reasonably good starter s bike .
and i'm sure a lot of people who must have bought a comet or a 400 after the launch of the comet must have gone crazy thinking about it .

Comet bhp= 30
FZR 250 bhp= 45

So, a bike which makes 15bhp more is stupid but, a bike which makes 30bhp is amazing, right????
Dude either you were unable to utilize that power or had a junk of a bike.

Inlines= more bhp
V-twins= more torque

A 250 inline will rip the comet into pieces, that too a old 1987 model.
Lets not compare the power here.
We have no choices for a new multi-cylinder bike here, get the comet or import a better bike, are the only options.

Do you know how hard a 250 inline 4 has to be revved to get that power?? Not to mention the totally anaemic low end and midrange which is so valuable on our roads, and high rpm wear n tear of the engine parts.

I agree on that part, the inline250 makes its power at a stratospheric high 14500rpm but, given a straight stretch would'nt the 250 inline just walk away from the Comet??? Let alone a 400.
V-twins are always easier to handle and extract power as they have more torque available.
