  • Registering New Bike

    Well I'm going to buy RTR 180 very soon. The issue is I only have Bank acc passbook as my current address proof and it is only 1 month old. TVS Showroom said they need at least 3 months old passbook and Pan card to register the bike. Now 1 month old pass book won't be taken by RTO. Is there lot of hurdles if I purchase the bike 1st and then register it myself few months later ? I will practice only at early morning in our locality so no issues with Police charge. Any suggestions ? I'm from Kolkata.

      For registering a vehicle you wont need bank passbook,

      May be that guys asked bank statement for loan processing.

      Try to get an valid doccument from village office.

        Controversial question!!! I will try putting across my reply in a diplomatic way!!!

        First of all, I am not sure if the showroom guys will allow you to take the bike without atleast applying for registration, but normally, most bikes are delivered without a registration after pasting a simple "for registration" note on the number plates, and the number is provided within 45 days from the date of purchase.

        Biking is not about how many Km/h you put on your Speedo. It's about how many miles you put on your Odo. Ride Safe, Ride Long!
