    Wonderful Review and great pics too.

    Glad to hear that it is a very practical bike for our Indian conditions, the lack of heating and FE was a surprise.
    Also loved the fact that the bike would almost go unnoticed as compared to the otherwise asymmetric styled bikes from BMW

    Cheers

    If I were the biker on those 2 wheels - I would have made sure that people around me definitely notice the beast and the tamer (me!). lol!

    A Fantastic review and great pics. Enough for an early morning 'butterflies-in-my-stomach' syndrome!

    Some queries though KEN-da,

    1. Keyhole below rear Tail Lamp
    2. Exhaust on the left so any pillion issues
    3. Pictures of Dashboard is missed
    4. Headlight details and DRLs

    Yes pictures are awesome and only f1.8 & f2.8 can do justice to this.
    Thanks.

    1. Keyhole is the seat release!
    2. Pillion had NO issues!
    3. More pictures coming.
    4. Dual H11, 55Watt bulbs. It is actually the quality and design of the reflector that makes the light strong and well spread exactly where you need it!

    Thanks Ken Da for the wonderful Pictures and a good Verdict.


    PS : Once a Beemer Admirer, Always a Beemer Admirer..
    Thanks Mav.

    Boxer engines are very different indeed.
    The Wheel was a great invention; Two Wheels with a Motor in between was even better!

    Default Ah it hurts!!!

    I wish this beamer was available before I bought the Bandit. No regrets with the Bandit queen but end of the day a beamer is a beamer. Specs show she is a torque queen similar to bandit. Yeah a beamer ridability in traffic will be much better compared to the hard handles of a bandit. Just loved everyline of this article; amazing pics ken.

    I wish I could buy it right now ; don't wanna say never coz you never know what happens.

    For the K1300R review Sunny, you just have to see the K1300R India Ride Report!

    A friend ready to pay 20L in Mumbai is being refused as the quoted price is 24L here.

    Another sold his busa loved the 1300r but now settled for new intruder

    Brilliant review, amazing pics Ken da.
    I am already falling in love with this one, to ride this bike in Indian conditions would be a cherishable experience.
