      No one is complaining about the Ninja; if you are referring to Tenhut's post that was sarcasm. And so is mine a few posts below that.

      @Sheelpriye - In most industrial products, the cost of production is not proportional to retail price or perceived consumer value. So making a 250cc is NOT 1/4 the cost of a 1000 cc motorbike. People are forgetting that Bajaj is also assembling the bike here so there are labor and overheads costs involved since a separate production line is engaged - 'profit' is not the only thing in this business.

      This is an ownership thread, so please leave it for exactly that. Thanks.

          My thoughts exactly. Whether Bajaj is making fat profits on this bike or not is absolutely irrelevant to this thread. Also what is wrong in making profits? Would any businessman have a business which does not generate profits? Whether any one would like to be employed at a salary equivalent to his grocery bills? Your monthly savings are the profits you are making. I don't hear anyone moaning about huge profits they themselves are making.

          Whoever thinks that Ninja is expensive, has an option of not buying it. No one is forcing you to buy it.

          In fact, I had nearly cancelled my plans of buying a ninja on hearing the price. Only because my wife supported me, I went ahead and bought it.

          I bought this bike as my sole transport every day. Tenhut has bought this bike for a completely different reason. Tenhut and I have often spoken about this and we both feel that this bike is worth every rupee.

          We both have our opinions about its quality, performance, service quality etc. but all these terms are relative and should not be compared with any other bike. If you want to compare it , please do it with HH CD Dawn and/or busa.

          Fuel Economy :

          I normally check fuel economy on every tankful. Currently I am getting fuel economy around 25kmpl for city riding. What about others?

          I know that a typical Ninja owner is not much bothered about the fuel economy but you can keep a track of your engine condition by regularly checking average. That is why I do it.

          • Ahem! I agree with the owners, I always felt it was worth every rupee for the Indian context, but will not state my reasons so as to not reinstate the OT discussion!
            Coming back to the real thing, can anyone please reply to my post here: http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/motorcyc...tml#post361233
            Also, does BAL order any other accessories or stuff if you are ready to pay them in advance for it?
            Last question (for today): How is the spares supply? Atleast wear&tear items? If some owner has a crash, do they have the fairing, headlamp etc.parts also ready or do they order for it? If ordering, then how long does it take?
            Thanks.

              whats wrong with the 600cc class in india????
              Cuz even if they do sell the 0.6ltr engine bikes,they would cost around 7-9 lakhs rupees!

                  wtf?????? +1 on the things I said ? You honestly believe that Horsepower is the only thing that goes into the making of a bike ? Wow..honestly..even if i get an infraction for saying this, You Sir, Renny Cornelius, should not be in the business of riding a motorcycle at all. And stop PMing me about how all Ninja owners are wasting their Dads money ! Its so lol. Tbh my Ninja wasnt even my money...i had stolen it out a bank. I wish it was yours.

                  what about the 11% bajaj is paying over 110-115% we have to shell out for 1000cc,
                  bajaj is making very fat profits, no two ways about it,
                  How do you manage to confront facts with theorymaking again and again? Someone just posted the prices all over the world and you still are harping about it. Cry me a river , will you ?

                    Tenhut,
                    Chill man, please. I know you are angry over some people but please thats not the way to talk to a fellow xBhpian, maybe he didnt understand the sarcasm in that post. The best thing is to ignore some posts and a few members who ignite the fire and then useless discussion continues over pages. Let people harp about prices etc we are interested in ownership reviews and nothing else so PLEASE GUYS stop this discussion over Bajaj looting people and all.
                    People buy anything with their hard earned money and one shouldnt question them about their decision.
                    Tenhut,
                    calm down bro. We need good info posts about Ninja from you, not such posts full of hatred and anger.
                    I need to keep a better watch on my fuel effeciency...will revert back with the figure Vishwas. 25 in city sounds just about it.
                    25 kmpl is damn good for a bike belting out 30+bhp. Its impressive and am sure you Ninja owners keep giving short bursts as on a Ninja, that must be irresistible.

                        • @sarvajit - the R15 paddock stand wont fit the ninja, because its not as wide as the stand for the ninja. I have tried this with my friend's stand.

                          And lets please stick to ownership experiences etc. Start a new thread if you wanna compare the ninja to anything else.

                          • I wish I could get my bike delivered today so that I could write an ownership review and finish this mess. Unfortunately no new Ninjas have been delivered in the past few weeks, hence our fellow bikers have had nothing new to discuss. As they say Empty Mind is a Devil's Workshop.

                            Therefore, I will imagine that I have got my Ninja delivered today and will share what I did with it.

                            First I got my front number plate and headlight removed, because I wanted it to look like a true racetrack devil.



                            I had just reached MG Road when I saw this hot girl riding a Red Ninja.



                            I followed her for around 20 kms, however when we reached her place and she took her helmet off…. I found it was a dude.

                            Now if you guys… want me to continue with my imaginative, topic changing bullc**p …. I will.

                            However, I am sure none of you would want me too…. But if I see this thread turn into a warzone again… I definitely will… and believe me it would be worse than above.

                            PS: Don't kick me out of xbhp ... please.

                              I guess most of us have been with our bikes for two months or less, so none would have ordered OEM parts from Bajaj yet...

                              And apart from the seat cover, nothing else seems to be available as add-ons.
