                    I didn't find it thaaat bad a looker... but optional alloys isn't what people want to have these days.. and they could just kept discs also as options.. i guess.. if there are options available.

                    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

                      The Suzuki slingshot is goi g to be launched today. It is targetted at the mSs segment and will be positioned to fill the void that currently exists between the 100cc and 150cc bikes. So all you guys craving for more bhps do not get frantic here, this is not for you. Although let is hope that the bike sells well and suzuki gets bigger bikes. Thanks to them for getting the bandit etc

                          i dont think they have optional disc. so its jut optional alloys. 125ccw/o disc is not good. just drum brakes

                            this bike in yellow looks quiet decent as compared to the other 125s in the market apart from stunner.

                            If they price it rightly close to the 125 cc from Yamaha then it will surely sell in good numbers.

                            Gray-haired riders don't get that way from pure luck.
