    The most anticipated and underrated cousin of the Mighty Inazuma. Some love it and some downright *hate* it. Let's see how this fares under xBhp's scalpel.

    Cheers!

    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

      Eagerly waiting for this bike, its a real monster at 183 KG, should be best suited to touring I guess.

            I guess VJ was referring to B-King.

                The bike looks sorta "Commuterish".. Doesn't really have the "oomph" character in it, regarding looks.
                Well that's my opinion !

                  looking at which I feel like saying "were the Suzuki guys sleeping while placing the exhaust and saree guard in position !! "

                  The design is seriously a let down looking at the current scenario of our Indian 2-wheeler market .............

                  But these are my views .......... let's see what xBhp comes up in the investigation report

                          Does anyone here remember the introducing of GS150R which was codenamed Lanza? Almost everyone was bashing it based on a spy photo, how ugly it was, how very Unicorn-looking or copied from pulsar or what not. But the bike looked wonderful in person, and performs beautifully. So much that even after 3 years, I still can't find any worthy upgrade to GS150R. I hope this 250 too will continue in the same fashion. Let racers be on Yamahas, single tourers on CBRs, stunters and off roaders on Duke, and let family tourers be on Inazuma!

                          Eagerly awaiting the writeup, and really hope the bike gets launched really soon. (And pray that it comes around 1.5L, though the chances are slim )

                            xBhp should let go of this teaser thing, based on previous xbhp first impressions, one thing is for sure, this first impression report is not coming tomorrow ...

                            you can't find any worthy upgrade to GS150R....right from 180CC's to 1000CC, surprising...


                            i like this line -- "Let racers be on Yamahas, single tourers on CBRs, stunters and off roaders on Duke, and let family tourers be on


                            Inazuma!"

                            suzuki was not only sleeping while placing exhaust and saree guard, but it was sleeping during the bike design also.

                            weight wise, this bike is in the league of Hyosung GT250R...

                            the colours available are black & a variation of red.. any other colour anybody know..??

                            the headlight and tail section are the worst designed parts and a grab rail that looks straight out of a commuter.


                            the seat looks comfy and spacious.


                            look at the black painted handle just below the seat aka bullet style, maybe to put it on center stand, maybe this bike will come with a main stand as well.

                            rider footpegs are not rearset, instead placed in a commuter position and quite low, that combined with two exhausts that are placed quite wide makes this bike not suitable for high lean angles during corners or something will scrap.

                            the chasis looks like a double cradle frame aka our desi bikes.

                            a parallel twin engine that is not high revving is something difficult to digest, but i guess thats the way it is.

                            suitable for family touring... as "animeher" puts it....maybe yes....

                              I should have said 'till 250cc, and including bullet of 350cc and 500cc'. Before anyone jumps with a pitchfork, please know that these are strictly my personal view. My required utility from the bike is very clear: It should be reliable, very few vibrations, as silent as engine in its catagory can be, best seats for rider as well as pillion, and involving machine.

                              Now, bullet (present thunderbird and classic) didn't satisfy on 'no vibrations' part, though some people absolutely love the thump. I couldn't take the vibrating mirrors and handles on the classic too well! Then while test riding Duke, the person from showroom had to sit on my shoulders (almost) because of very small pillion! CBR250 is having bit sporty position, and I don't think I can hold the position. Also, pillion seat isn't as wide/long as required. Thunderbird 500 was very interesting, but somehow, so many false neutrals in a relatively short test ride didn't inspire confidence.

                              So with all the above biases, I will still say that I am yet to find a worthy upgrade! Wish the thunderbird styling was done by Honda or Suzuki!

                              Not everyone wants to ride a sporty bike or a stunt bike. Even us steady tourers wish to have a good capacity reliable bike with standard sitting position and pillion comfort!
