    Hey Rachit,

    Good to see you after some time. I guess we both upgraded from our Red Karizmas in the similar time frame.

    Can you help me with the difference between Pilot Road and Pilot Power series? I couldn't get a decent answer from Internet.
    I was looking at Pilot Road 3 as one of the option for my CBR.

    Wishing you many wonderful miles with the Z.

    CHEERS!!

    Hey hi buddy.. I do remember we talking about the similarities we shared long time back. After karizma i owned and still have the CBR250.
    Am afraid, I may not be the right guy to tell you the exact difference. Although, from what I heard is Road 2 is now outdated since 2013, Road 3 I doubt if available for India, Road4 was getting quiet expensive for me and wasnt of the stock size of the Z. And perhaps, Road tyres are 100 percent touring ones. I wanted a tyre which has mix of touring, good on corners, wet. I read lot of good things on other forums too. So was contemplated on getting the Power 3. I could be wrong with my details, but I am totally happy with the purchase and am sure the happiness will increase with the gain in grip as I ride it further.
    Ride safe buddy..!!

    Friends I was looking to buy Z800 since many months but I was out of India. At 8.3l on road Pune, it was very sweet deal. Now there is dilemma - Z900 will be launched soon and In Maharashtra Z800 is now almost 1l expensive. Also by year end I will again have to travel abroad so I was thinking to buy used Z800/Street Triple. I have ruled out ST due to notorious stalling issue. I have come across couple of deals of Z800 from local dealer of old bikes. One of the model is May 2014 make and driven around 12k and accessorized worth 50-60k and Pune registered. There is not accident history and bike seems to be in mint condition. Is 7l worth price for it ? How to ensure there is no major problem with bike - I was thinking to take the bike to Kawasaki dealer (Khiwraj) for paid inspection but I am not sure if this is feasible.

    Bro - 7 lakhs for a 2014 bike is too high. Think this way - bike onroad price then will be around 8.5.

    3 years depriciation of the cost should be 30% less which means 850000 - 255000 = 5,95,000. Taking this into consideration the cost is high. At most if you really like the bike, you should go to 6.25 lakhs.

    Source for depriciation. https://www.icicilombard.com/insuran...ur-two-wheeler
