Exactly whatever is happening is totally not cool. A lot of bikers here are quite disappointed by the turn of things. And I also agree with what insaneroller said I mean people should have waited for a couple of months for things to cool down rather then start riding their bikes around. And what do you get for riding the bike in the city anyways. Really really wishing that this thing gets sorted out soon enough and somekind of decision is made, the common man who litrally paid a fortune for his dream ride should not be caught up with the daddy's boys who ride around in town and the other people who are into the lurky business.

It has everything to do with the recent rides. Otherwise the matter was going to be concluded. Need to check your info mate. It all went out of hand after recent rides took place & they got to know. Whoever had paid up etc earlier, all those bikes are legal now, just not getting released, as with the rdies happening, they are getting info that there are more bikes to be picked up. If bikes get picked up now, i really pity the people. They can try whatever connections they have.

I must say here is that I absolutely agree with Insaneroller! It makes sense is what you have said Insane and cause of the people riding now the guys who have paid up toward getting their bikes officialised are suffering.

Hopefully now better sense will prevail and God willing all of this will come to an end.

Good on you Insaneroller for providing us with info the way it is!

A little Confused here... What Recent Rides are we talking here...

Also what happens once the DRI Defines a bike as Genuine Import?
Do they give a letter / certificate, to shut up the local Police from stopping and harassing the genuine SBK'ers.

Ask the guys who ignored the situation & went ahead to ride. They will give you a letter of apology for picking it up if all your paper work is proper. Plus, now its not only DRI who's involved, there are other departments too, so the ones getting caught right now are going to regret they ever bought one.

Wouldn't it have been plain common sense to lie low, and now ride around with things being in such a bad state? Guess some people don't quite care about what the results might be,but much rather do as they please ( and then end up in trouble).

Eggjactly, they can also make more money by assembling in India as the labor (both skilled and semi skilled) costs, land and building costs are lower. They should learn a lesson or two from Hyundai, Suzuki and IT companies. The Motorcycle manufacturers can set-up their assembling units near Chennai or Mumbai as they are port cities or they can as well think of Gujarat.

Slightly OT, Mercedes and BMW assemble their C-Class and 3 series respectively in India but they are still priced as if they are CBUs. Damn!!! What kind of profits are they making in India???

Bro! The pricing depends upon the local content. CKD operations (read: local assembly) surely help requce costs but then the duty on imported goods that go into the car push the price back up. 3er & C class are priced much higher than what they are available say in EU. So, here come the profits.

ok. so if i understand you clearly, if I own a bike (almost there) with clear papers and with all bills and receipts, they will take my bike and release it a couple of days later with a letter of apology? Can I ride in peace then or still I have to hide somewhere, or lie low?

I seriously don't want to buy a bike which is going to remain confiscated in a warehouse for good time despite having clear papers. I am buying it to ride, not to hide. In RayBan's words, Never Hide!

Exactly my point.. I mean there should be a way that all the genuine buyers and SBK owners can take their bike voluntarily to the DRI office and let them do whatever checks they want, and then should be giving a "Letter of Confirmation".

This in turn should help the good people save a lot of hassle from the regular pandu's. Because I know for sure that there will be a lot of such Pandu's who won't know anything but still wouldn’t keep their mouths shut.

Anybody from DRI & RTO Listening ?

Thats never going to happen, last I heard was Official busa's have been picked up. They stated that suzuki is avoiding duties on them. Also the owners have been asked to contact suzuki and not the DRI. GO Figure.

There are too many archiac laws that exist. 800cc's could not be homoligated till sometime ago so there is a good chance that 06 fireblade with 5 lakh duties is still not legal.

I won't be surprised if those Busa's were bought from Bunty. His name is not mentioned as a dealer by the Suzuki website and yet he claimed that he was a distributor .
