    Default XBHP's Bike of the year 2008

    Magazine, newspapers, websites, TV shows - everyone has been or will be presenting their own Bike of the year awards. What about us then?

    Here are the shortlisted contenders for the year 2008. Take your pick, and ofcourse support your choice with a line or two!

    1. Bajaj Platina 125
    2. Bajaj Discover 135
    3. Honda CBF Stunner
    4. Honda Aviator
    5. TVS Flame
    6. TVS Apache RTR FI
    7. Royal Enfield Thunderbird TBTS
    8. Yamaha FZ16
    9. Yamaha R15

    PS: These above 9 two-wheelers were launched in the year 2008 - the methodology followed by every magazine that has bike of the year awards. We only include those machines that we commercially launched in that specific year, in this case, 2008

    My choice: The r15
    Why : it opens a completely new segment in India. India's first real sports bike with modern hi-tech stuff. The R15 is my choice..

    Topic Approved.

    Some of the big names are totally missing from this poll of yours. Names like 'Honda Unicorn', Bajaj's Pulsar siblings (200/ 220), or even the all time favourite 'ZMA'!

    My vote would have undoubtedly gone to the Karizma, if there would've been such an option, that is! As the poll stands now, I vote for NONE!

    Aryan : Bike of the year awards are judged on bikes launched in that year. And hence, these 9 two-wheelers launched in the year 2008. This methodology is followed by each magazine / newspaper / website / TV shows : whosoever conducts their own Bike of the year awards

    My vote goes for the R15 because its the best 150CC bike any one would get

    For once am torn between the R15 and RTR Fi, but I will have to give it to the R15 simply for Yamaha's guts to come out with an out and out sports bike targetted at the racing afficandos (and posers as well) and not try to be a mix and match of everything like the other bikes are.

    P.S: Purely my opinion and no flaming invited!

    R15 i think is the winner 7 out of 9 votes right now. Weird some publications have given the FZ16 the winners crown!

    R15 all the way, Yamaha did open Indian bikers up to New Technology, styling. They have intorduced a new dimension to Biking in India.
