Cool hehe

nice reveiws dudes....
but i gotta say to pay over a lac 30 or 50 for a bike like that....
no way in hell....
dudes its better to go in for a second hand car like an esteem or sumthin..
which will offer u a thousand times more comfort...
speed,torque......
horse power.....
nice review though rtech...
its good the boys managed to convince u not to buy the bike...
imagine the waste it wud have been if u did....
because in a year ud be gettin the comet 650 for about 3 1/2 to 5 lacs...
i feel that would have been a better deal dunt u????
thanx aniways......
peaceout.....
psycholyn....

It is discontinued guys. For 1.1 lac, do you think a 2nd hand Comet is a better buy over a new R15?

27bhp to be precise but then again if I were you I would definitely steer clear of anything manufactured by Kinetic...that too when it's out of production/limited edition. I have a Kinetic GF170 Laser Sport and now she's sitting idle in my garage as I have eventually given up on Kinetic for spares and I'am now happily using a Pulsar 180 DTSi....Comet parts are twice as expensive but only catch is to get the spares...get the bike only when you know someone is South Korea who'll export the spares to you...

Given the kind of condition of after sales service I'm sure 90% of Comet owners would love to dispose off that bike so 1.1lacs is highly far fetched. Again, I would not think you would get any Comet less 3 years old so a realistic price should be around 25-40K depending upon the condition of the bike...nothing more than that.Period.

Just my 2 paisas....
