Congrats on getting the delivery of the monster Nadim. She looks really beefy and hot.

Ride safe. The rains can make the roads really slippery and with the brakes on these bikes coupled with the power they belt out, it can be a handful at times.

Congrats again and enjoy the Ferrari on 2 wheels.

Thats exactly what it is !!! Or, a strapped Monster, I guess.

Congrats on getting the beast. Hope you got most of the gear required. Ride with care and a steady throttle and you will realize how much safer and fun a powerful machine is on our roads.

Regarding your earlier queries about helmets, as a suggestion, try out the new "Flip face" models out there. You get the protection of full face, and the ease of flipping up for gas stations, smoke/drink break, etc. Usual drawbacks include higher wind noise, but since you are mostly a city rider, would not be an issue. Shoei Multitec is one of the better ones out there, (Its what I use and am very happy), with some really good models by Schuberth and Roof as well. As far as Indian models go, there is a decent one by Vega (quite heavy), and a light one by Aaron (exact copy of Multitec), but very flimsy looking.

Since you have spent so much on an exotic, please take the time and effort in investing for some good gear.

Eid Mubarak and congrats.

Congratulations @Nadim; it looks so beautiful, impulsive buy is now turning to reality. I'm sure you're getting highly impatience now , quite natural.

I've been hearing some issues with RTO & registration process, so just keep a tab on that part. The dealer should help you with that, but still, I heard RTO delays things invariably.

From the pics, it looks like the Monster is awaiting its freedom

She really takes your breath away, doesn't she?

Absolutely gorgeous. Never have I ever thought metal can be twisted, welded, folded and hammered to look like that. This is to bikes what Ferraris/Maseratis/Alfa Romeos are to cars!

She's just exquisite! An absolute work of art.
