Agreed. I guess they need manoeuvrable bikes and while an Avenger/Bullet might be comfortable, they are not exactly fluid when it comes to manoeuvrability in the city.

There was a time when they had basic commuter bikes like Hero (Honda) Splendor or Passion; and the mighty (but issue-prone) Rajdoot in the days of yore but times have changed a lot since then.

One would imagine a 'Excise strike force' would use something less obvious! This kind of alerts the whole neighbourhood before the 'strike force' reaches the intended destination.

The post by Volkman is more than 1.5 years old and that means its the right time to check about the long-term experience of these bikes and if they still continue to use them without a fuss .

Nagpur BHPians anyone confirms if these bikes are still around in your city?

That's an amphibious ATV.

1) Notice the 'boat-shaped' body
2) Notice the tyres with deep grooves. They provide propulsion in water

Something like this:
