    Move on brother, I don't see the point of investing lakhs on restoration when you can get a new one with some extra money, sorry to say. Curious, what bike are upgrading or switching too?

    Since my initial days of biking, I have had this habit of collecting parts as and when I can afford to buy them to make my own personal parts store that can be used for a rainy day like this (call it illogical, but it comes from having a hoarding mentality from the days of license raj). Therefore, since the day I bought the bike I have have continued the practice of collecting parts (I have parts like throttle body, set of rims and other things that most people will not stock). So I have all the parts in stock except for the chassis and engine cover. I am not keeping the bike, but till date I have never sold any of my bikes, they are a part of my family, nor do I have the heart of scraping the bike when I have almost all the parts. The best thing for the bike is to resurrect it and give it to someone who will care of it with the same amount passion and loving care. So the bike will be resurrected with the parts in hand and a new chassis and engine cover. The labour will be taken care of by Motozone, since I have decided to give the bike to them. We will record the resurrection on this thread, before drawing the curtains on the story.

    I have almost made my choice; the Z900. However, some of my friends are urging to consider the Z1000 and the ZX10. The ZX10 is a bit too demanding physically for me now. So the choice is between Z900 and the Z1000.

    Z900? Interesting, not considering the street triple? Or the new gsx s 750 which has the safety net of traction control or you one of Those riders who don't like rider aids?

    Did consider the Street Triple, GSX750, and the MT-09, the Z900 is a much more comfortable bike, the Z1000 even more so. I have nothing against riding aids, most of the time they are just safety nets. Just as in the cars we own, I have till date never had the ABS or EBD or traction control ever activate in my cars. A day may come when these aids may save me, or maybe not, but its good to have them if you have the option.

    Interesting choice!! Going by the direction which Ninja San took and from what I could understand of what sort of riding you enjoy, I would also suggest the Street Triple. Z900 is a fantastic motorcycle, but somehow my hunch suggests that you would enjoy the street triple more.

    Best of Luck!!

    Its been an extremely hectic year. Had to first arrange for my son’s higher studies in US. The running around from pillar to post to ensure his admission & visas was emotionally and physically draining. Thankfully, everything turned out alright and he is now doing his BTech (Mech) for Universty of Texas. By the time we were done and dusted with all this, multiple tragedies struck Vikram and his family. Hence, we were not able to work on the bike. I have decided not keep the bike, my wife is insisting on my buying a new one, so I will start looking at options shortly. Also need to arrange for the money (each year of my son’s study is equivalent of one ZX-10RR 😅). Therefore I have signed over the papers of Ninja San to Vikram for him to make and use.
