Change is the only constant is something that all of us have heard of. But there’s one more aspect to it that very much defines how we perceive the said change. And that aspect is the way it takes. Sometimes it is subtle and progressive and sometimes, sudden and disrupting.
Humanity has evolved and that particular change is still ongoing. But some major milestones have, unfortunately, taken the ‘sudden and disruptive’ approach. Wars, natural calamities… and pandemics.
At this point in time, a pandemic, COVID-19, is staring into our faces and with it, we are sure that many changes are making their way to humanity. And if history has taught us anything, changes almost certainly spell the end of something, to make way for something else…for example, end of ‘office’-centric approach to work-from-home centric approach.
As we sit at our homes (we hope all of us are doing that) and ponder over things… let us take a look at some two-wheeled examples of said changes that meant the end of the line for some of the most prominent models in the history of motorcycles.
So, here are 10 motorcycles that we wish were still in production. The list includes the one you saw on the top, Suzuki Hayabusa, the name synonymous with the word ‘superbike’ in India! Falcon, Hayabusa, Dhoom bike and so many other names… The GSX1300R is, more or less, the definition of a rider’s superbike! It is the latest one to go into extinction after Suzuki decided to not upgrade it to BS6 and rather discontinue selling it! Here’s our tribute to the falcon.
