Yeah, that belongs to one of the Thane group. I am just surprised that there aren't many of these 750s around. That Racefit is a super loud exhaust, and this is like a shorty version of the Racefit, just imagine how it would sound.

"Yeah, that belongs to one of the Thane group. I am just surprised that there aren't many of these 750s around."

So do i.I mean the K8 GSXR, especially the 750 is such a near perfect package. I personally have always liked the K4-K5 and the K8-K9 variants.
Suprising why it aint appealing to many.Atleast to a crazy gixxer fan like me,that is perfection!!!

If they were then why wouldn't they ride? Only the guys who have bought bikes from showrooms here (mostly R1's & MT-01's) would ride freely.

There are bikes that are brought into the country in one piece, and are clean imports. But the owners mostly would not ride those to avoid being hassled by the the concerned officials.

And, riding an official bike does not mean the owner will be saved from trouble either. From a REAL incident, the bike is picked up irrespective, papers are scrutinised over a couple or few weeks and then if everything seems to be in place, the bike is handed over to the owner accomnpanied with a letter of apology for the inconvenience caused to the owner.

I don't see why it would take 2 weeks for them to know that a bike is bought from a showroom in the country.

I am not surprised at all at 2 weeks. Usual Red Tape and giving enough scope for some bribes.

Any known bikes in the net?

The DRI would not care how official your bike is till they have verified the corresponding import documents to your vehicle.
None of the 'official' superbike owners get the import documents simply because no company would like to reveal their cost prices, so instead they most definitely keep back all the documents of import and simply issue a Tax Invoice (bill) towards the sale.

For example sake:
So, for all you know, DRI would want to chceck if Yamaha India have paid full duty on their R1 & MT01 imports. This would require the owner of a bike to request Yamaha India release the corresponding import documents and have have them sent to the DRI for scrutiny.
In India if this can be done in two weeks odd, you should consider yourself lucky.
