    Yes, absolutely! The showroom is open. And you don't need to take your "desi bike" INSIDE the showroom premises! You can just go and visit it once.

    LEGEN.......wait for it....................DARY.
    WOW, great to see Ducati showrooms cropping up all over.
    @Ken--Loved the following converstation u had with the champ.

    I asked him, When you are crouched behind the bubble astride your Ducati, what do you read off the console? At that Nicky nearly burst out laughing saying, When you are flying at 210 miles an hour, (over 330kmph) there is not much time to look at the console. However we do keep an eye on it for the Rpm, the gear position, the shift light and lap times. We also try to keep an eye out for what the team tries to communicate with the boards though it is not easy at those speeds.

    Ken- can u post the latest price list by ducati ?
    thanks

    lol..
    It was posted on his DUCATI blog though..

    Btw, @aryan: how big is that showroom?? Just asking coz here in Mumbai the showroom couldn't accomodate more than 4 - 5 bikes. Here it was 1098s, r, 848 and the hypermotard.

    P.S.: Now hope Yamaha gets Rossi in Mumbai

    Great stuff! I had the pleasure of recieving the whole launch report verbally from Ken!

    It is one great opportunity I have missed, meeting with up with Nick, I still cannot believe they got him to India for this (and most of the India media didnt know who he was, their loss!).

    Thank you Ken da for this delicious piece of news. Oh and I forgot to add, glamorous. Nicky Hayden seems like a nice chap. Thumbs up to Ducati for bringing him to India. It speaks volumes about their attitude.

    Well, even if I do realise my dream of owning one of these someday, my parents will disown me for spending 44lakh on a bike. Oh well, better start saying my goodbyes then.

    @Jd666: Am hoping to see an update in your signature soon, starting with the letters D-u-c-a-t-i.
