when the come to pick up ur legal 12lac R1 or 14 lac busa , do they just come to ur place and ask to see ur papers and leave or do they actually pick up ur bike ? if they do pick up ur bike how do the take it ? in their town truck with guys lifting the bike ?! if the bike gets scratched or damaged do they compensate for it ?!

There are a lot of questions that we all have,,, and sadly not satisfactory answers.
I hope someone can contact DRI and get all the details. and it would be really great if that someone can even share their experiance.

I'd like to see them compensating people for the damage they cause to the confiscated bikes. All the more, if the bikes are left at certain locations to battle the elements, then God save the bikes!!

The bikes are kept in the outdoors so you can imagine what's going to happen in the rains.

And given the flooding that happens in B'bay, this isn't going to be a good picture anyway. Its either now, or never to save the bikes.

At this point, I guess each & every single bike will be picked up.The verification process probably will go on for a while.If a bike that was bought from a showroom gets picked up, then it goes to say how well the system works. If genuine papers are seen,wouldn't it be in the best interest of the DRI to let go of the person, rather than hoard more bikes for further investigation?
Beats me!!

What would one need to do immediately after taking delivery of the bike is to head straight to DRI office ,and get a Go from them and probably a phooto session with DRI officer and have this photo in the list of papers .

Better still, go to a DRI officer, express your desire to buy an import, seek his approval ( written ) and then head for the showroom. But wait, you are still not safe on the roads. Because there are other departments to deal with, like tarffic police and RTO. Now they are all different wings of the government but right arm of the govt. does not know what the left arm is doing and it does not care. So, one's approval may not be recognized by the other two. Now whom do SBK owners turn to for help? Since SBK owenrs are not big in numbers like autodrivers or truckers or cabbies, politicians do not care a fig for their votes. In short, God help SBK owners.

As a matter of fact, this is a true opportunity for India to have some homegrown companies to compete with Yamaha and Suzuki, with names like Yamaki, KawaDa, Ducota, etc.

On a serious notes, engine transplant is something I've considered lately. But importing a good engine is gonna cost you at least 40/50 odd grands since that's how people parting a bike abroad do. Positive side is if you have a chassis, plonk a nice engine, get a way to make it road legal and get going. Negative side, making it road-legal.
