  1. Yamaha plans to make India export hub!

    The Kawasaki Ninja 250 will cost more than twice the list price of the R15 when launched. Up to you to decide if the premium is worth it or not. But really, its a case of apples and oranges.
  2. Planning to Buy the Pulsar 200 :D...

    This may be a minor detail for you, but ever thought of getting a legal license?
  3. Pulsar300cc

    I swear, If I had a penny for every time i saw someone post those photoshopped pics of the "Pulsar 300 CC", I'd be buying the second set of rubbers for my R6 now.
  4. Cant talk now. Too upset. Please read the following link: http://www.autoblog.com/2007/09/15/breaking-colin-mcrae-dies-with-son-in-helicopter-crash/ Good god....
  5. When the Man meets the Machine - P220

    There is no vehicle in the world that has a pin-point accurate fuel gauge. Those things are meant to be an indicator. Nothing more. For better results, open the lid and shake the bike with both thighs...
  6. Pulsar 220 : ground breaking machine.

    Hey soulie... Nice to see ya here... Rock on..!
  7. When the Man meets the Machine - P220

    OT: but isnt the whole "City biker-stunter-tourer" and the red/ grayscale theme a total rip off from xBhp?
  8. Holla from the synner.

    Well... My parents christened me Sandeep, but m better known on this interweb thingy as "The synner". A multimedia professional, m currently in Singapore in pursuit of higher education. transfered from a world in which i was riding punybikes and dreaming of superbikes to seeing superbikes day in and day out and dreaming of riding at least a punybike. Writing prose is in my blood, and i rarely mince my words while doing so. Extremely politically incorrect to boot. Loves all forms of sarcasm. Yamaha fan for life, and a little part of me dies every time a certain No.46 Yamaha fails to make it to the line first at the premiere motorcycle racing championship. Not as much passionate about cars, although a revving Skyline GT-R once made me cry for no reason. If there actually does exist a religion called "Shumi-ism", would the pastor please call me up? Well, thats pretty much it. Guess Il let the proverbial fat lady sing then....
  9. BMW or MERC or AUDI

    1) Audi. Coz I like sleepers. Theres nothing like kicking unsuspecting ass. 2) BMW. Two letters should suffice: M and 3. 3) Merc.. well.. l think about it when m 60 years old, have a paunch and sh!tload of cash in the bank...
  10. Racetrack in Hyderabad, AP?

    Well.. As mentioned earlier, You have my vote. But heres an alternative way to go about gathering "Net support". Create a blog on this, and explain the proposed plan in detail. Register the blog with "Motorcycle Bloggers international" (MBI) at http://www.mbiweb.org/ and let all the fellow bloggers promote the blog for you. Trust me, it works. P.S. How come I dont see the ACI guys chipping in?
  11. TVS Taurus Fiero F3

    Max: Dont i know it, buddy?
  12. TVS Taurus Fiero F3

    Payeng: Every marque out there has moles inside their competitors.. its a well known fact. Trust me, TVS doesnt have to wait till Auto expo to know whats cooking in the Bajaj kettle, and vice versa...
  13. Racetrack in Hyderabad, AP?

    Philip Island, eh? Now youv got me hooked! Two thumbs up from my side... Now can we have a Laguna Seca corkscrew in there too, please?
  14. Racetrack in Hyderabad, AP?

    World class as in.. F3 spec? or a full blown F1 spec track with all the supporting infrastructure around it..?
  15. TVS Taurus Fiero F3

    Max: Agreed, concepts have a purpose to serve, and that is, showcase future trends in design and technology. But THESE TVS prototypes are what we call, "parts bin specials". They are nothing more than assorted elements sourced from the far east put together to form a (non-runner ?) prototype. It says nothing about the company as a bike maker. That being said, in all probabilities, TVS has shed this attitude. Expect them to put up an impressive display at Auto Expo 08.
  16. Hello

    Hey sadsack, great to see you here too. Man, this place sure is attracting the right kinda crowd! As a welcome gift, please accept THIS from me. Oh I know that youd most definitely approve....
  17. TVS Taurus Fiero F3

    I dont know how or why people keep on diggin up this long dead piece of non-news ever few months or so... First of all, that "thing" was never called the Fiero F3. It was the Taurus concept, which TVS displayed at Auto Expo 04. A blatant rip off of the Sachs B 805, down to the paint schemes, this concept, like all the others TVS have displayed over the years, was to remain just that. A concept. The Fiero name is dead and buried. The Taurus concept has lost its novelty. TVS will surely bring the artillery for Auto expo 08. but it sure as hell wont include this thing.
  18. Fatigue Kills!!!

    Holy shyte mate.. that was one close call... Agree with the topic of the thread. As echo (of Bourne Identity fame) says, sleep is a weapon. Use it. Little sleep > no sleep.
  19. Holla from the synner.

    Max, Hawk, doc, payeng: Thanxalot for the welcome mateys.. good ta see that i have so many homes away from home.. Zavo: Thanx mate... FRG: Well, not zeroed in on a profession yet. As of the mo m still a research grad. But if anyone wants to employ me, m game...
  20. Three Wheelers - Whats your take?

    I hope to god that Tatas 1 lakh car sells by truckloads (no pun W.R.T FRGs truck ) so that the assorted crappola on our roads: read autorickshaws, punybikes carrying entire families, Kinetic Hondas with LPG cylinders up front (not too long ago, an infamous auto journo used to do this with EVERY step thru, in an attempt to test their load bearing capacity... but I digress) are history. ..and no, before anyone starts complaining about the enormous traffic jams this is gonna cause, d rather have 10 Re 1 lakh cars (just give it a proper name, will ya? This is getting kinda tiresome) one after the other at an intersection than a motley bunch of Autorickshaws, punybikes, cycles, donkeys and martians wrestling for space like sardines in a can. Jesus H. Christ, there are too many of us...!
  21. Holla from the synner.

    Okie.. here we go: Thats a Yamaha R6. Thats something I call "The Trigon". Based on a P220 engine and dimensions. heres somethin : Ravi Darad of Bajaj Auto liked it.. ...and Thats something i call, "The SphiMX", for obvious reasons. More madness at: http://first-synn.deviantart.com/gallery/
  22. Bajaj XCD or TVS Flame?

    OK, lets do this one more time in doc-speak: ...Just like the Bullet standard 350 and the Yamdoot RD 350, if you may...
  23. Pulsar 220 or Karizma?

    P.P.S. Payeng: Dont expect an FI system in the CRF 230 anytime soon. Off roaders the world over still mostly rely on carbs and *gasp* 4 speed gearboxes. In fact, 08 model year marks the first time ever that Yamaha has put an FI system in ANY of their offroaders....
