I will be back by end of October or November first week.Yes I am scanning deals for helmet,jacket,boots and other supports.I hope everything fits in my 23 kgs bag and I dont have to donate all my clothes here just to fit in my stuff.

Well mayank great choice of helmet.
also lets hope that by the time you land here,kawasakis are also launched.though highly unlikely but still those bikes are really very powerful bikes.and to have 2 kawis in our group would be awesome.
Ohh yeah sure we can try shoot for that too.

My vote goes to Blade or the normal CBR1k > MT01 and R1 (new engines still has to prove itself as well).

I have never sampled what Busa can do. So no comments on the Suzuki. Also, I heard it has already been discontinued. This means you can buy a modern legend.
Right!! enough said .Going through the thread excites me everyday.I can hardly wait till october.

So mayank given that the duke's are priced on the higher side.even then paying 13.5 or something lakhs for the R1 and just 6 lakhs more for the duke seems an awesome deal.If i were you i'd just stay put for 6 more months,add the money and just buy the duke.
16 lacs is too much .I could hardly convince my wife to allow me spend 12 .

The RR costs that much abroad. It was the 1098R which was priced at 48 lakhs and was picked up by Puma India (or thats what I've heard)

I really feel you should gun for the CB1000 considering this will be your first big bike and you can occasionally take along the missus as well.

whichever bike you do decide to buy, you better hurry up. Because i called up honda and yamaha company outlets, yamaha said not even a single R1 and MTO1 available currently, they dont even have a piece for display, she said next lot expected in october. Honda said no dragon green cb1000 available, sold out, but he could try for a black cb1000 but not confirmed, and fireblade only 2 pieces left in bombay.. Not sure what the scenario is at Suzuki because didnt call them, dont fancy the hayabusa and intruder.
All the best.

For Helmets I recommend Arai/AGV/Shoei n for your wife a Diesel. My wife wants me to ride the bike sometimes just to wear her helmet Diesel

Remember to try before you buy. Helmet is not about looks but comfort and security and dont mind spending that extra bit for attitude

update,
went to om sai honda yesterday, the fireblade was diplayed in one corner, was dusty and unkept and basically looked like it was not on their priority list. When asked about the hornet, one of their sales people took me to their godown a 10minute drive. The cb1000 was there, but was packed in a crate (they dont have a display piece and this one was sold and was awaiting registration etc ) and they had to open it for me, it was covered in plastic and foam and basically i couldnt see it to my satisfaction. Add to that the dirty godown in the open, it was hot and sunny and dusty, i was just put off, cant pay 11 lacs for a bike like that even if it came 2nd in bike of the year. Hope honda soon has a display piece for both their products in their a/c showroom under proper lighting etc.
End of the day, decided to wait until the monsoons end, and till my friends get their bkes cleared from dri, and also decided to wait coz ive heard yamaha is bringing in the fz1000 under cbu route so it will be definitely within a million rupees.

That Fireblade you saw at Om Sai was an '08 that they had got for registration purposes. Its a 0 km bike though. They will sell it for cheap if anyone is interested in buying it.
