That's because before the Suzuki's were launched here he was the first person to tell me that they are coming here and show me all the brochures for them.

After the Suzuki website started showing all their dealers, he/Dreambikes wasn't in that list for Pune. That's when I knew there's something wrong. When I spoke to you the Suzuki website didn't show any dealers.

I doubt Suzuki would be that stupid to evade dutes and then sell the bikes for 13.75L.

Actually if I remember correctly, things went sour at the last moment. AFAIK he has good relations with suzuki because of the DHOOM franchise, but the Suzuki dealers hawking their Access's and Zeus must have cried foul.

You don't need to homologate a bike on TR, which is what I assume the '06 'Blade would be. Homologation is only required for vehicles sold in India by the manufacturer.

A imported bike needs to be homologated, the new rule stated that its allowed for 801cc and above. And individual has to do it as well.

How have people been importing 400s and 600s and 700s and 750s legally?

Today I heard that 2 official R1's were also picked up from Bombay because apparently Yamaha also evaded some duties. I don't know how true that is though.

What? How is that even possible? I bet the DRI guys are just disillusioned with all the bikes around, they must have just picked it up without checking/owner did not have the papers handy.

Whats the point of buying a showroom legal R1?

Heard similar news. Strange things going around. Few are so irritated that want to sue the department itself

God knows when all this ends

Totally agree, its the worst kind of thing that could ever happen. I mean us as bikers what choice did we have? Only the grey market existed not so long ago.

Any updates on the Yamaha issue?

What about the TR bikes? Are they also picking up genuine TR Bikes?

They can pick up whatever they want but, they will have to return it to you without charging you anything once everything's verified.

Can anyone get all the paperwork of custom duties, octroi recipts and the invoice details of the official bikes sold by authorized dealers. This way we would get an idea of exactly what is the duty amount that is being paid (can be assumed this would be the correct value) by Yamaha.
