    • the story.....
    • Its been many years I was in a search of a perfect machine. After the very long search I met the ninja ,who was ready to perform. And I decided to take it someday.
      …………..days passed, I discussed about the ninja with my elder bro.
      After some days he mailed me the receipt of booking of ninja 250r in Trivandrum showroom which was 500kms away from my home ,and I was so much excited,it was in dec.2011 ,and dealer promised to deliver the bike within two months……
      while browsing the net I met with the newer colour schemes of 2012 ninja 250r,and liked that candy lime green colour. Called the dealer, enquired about that ,but they were unaware of that model. But we decided to wait for that model……………..days, weeks and months passed, the dealer first said it will launch in march 2012 or in April, decide to wait, but no response ,dealer promised to deliver the bike when it is launch and stated you will be the first customer of it, I waited patiently mailed to Bajaj enquiring the model but nobody knows when it will launch in India called other dealers in different states of India but nobody knows whether this model exist or not
      It was testing of my patience, I was in a confusion should I want to go for the existing model?...nah I was not going to sell the bike once I owned (I still rides the Kawasaki eliminator 2002 model which was bought by my brother) so let’s buy the latest because I have already waited about five months…….again days and months passed, called the dealer, they told there is a chance of launching it in august 2012 and then again waiting………..
      I almost forget about the bike……it was on august 30th midnight I saw all new 2013 N250 in the Kawasaki japan site and I was really shocked, the next day I called the dealer but they had no info. About it……I thought my wait was really worth now I started waiting for the new model…..after few days there comes the other bomb the 300 for Europe market, it put a smile on me…..but again on confusion which model will launch in India the 250 or the 300…mailed Kawasaki japan enquiring about this but they replied they are just said the 2013 model will launch soon, actually they have no info. About it, called pune they said they are currently selling the old 250 and donno about the new model……what the hell nobody in the world knows when is new ninja is gonna launch in India, at this time I got a info that the testing of ninja 300 is going on in the bajaj plant,which gave me a relief but still the launch date is unknown…….It really made me mad….a question araised in my mind why only in india we are still not getting new model when in other countries already enjoying the bike……its about one year iam waiting….the 2012 year also ended but still no bike
      Many said that you are mad and you not gonna get that bike…..it was in February 2013 got a call from dealer stating that there is a chance of launching the bike in march first,I didn’t believe it…I called the dealer in march and enquired about it, and they said late march,the waiting of ninja was like killing myself,but I have to wait that’s it
      March ended and april came and there it is official statement “the bike is gonna launch in april 10th” wow…called the dealer they said the bike will reach showroom on april 9th
      I was excited and was simply smiling as I was mad….after the official launch on april 10th afternoon,at that night I travelled to the showroom since the showroom was 500kms awy from home
      The next day I reached Trivandrum showroom huh there it is the 300,the first time I am seeing bike in naked eyes I fell in love with it………and what !!! I took it to home

    I doubt if he has already got it.. The post is dated 7th April, so he must have just booked it & started the thread, but it was only approved today
