    Recently there was ride organised for Kawasaki owners of Mumbai and Pune. The meeting point was Lonavala. 6 am sleepy faces.

    Got a chance to talk with Mr Shigeto Nishikawa. So straightaway asked about ZX6R. He said that they are working on homologating the bike. They have not decided whether to bring it as CBU or SKD. CBU will make it very expensive and they don't want that. Which is a nice thing, they do consider price point. And the other thing is saree guard. He said it is a very big issue for a manufacturer. I replied that we remove it the next day of purchase. To which he laughed. He said we have to respect the government rules.
    Other than that we discussed about design philosophy of Kawasaki. And the impact of Japanese anime on the design. He said that it is a very big influence for the design. In fact the inspiration for Ninja H2 was a character from popular Japanese animation series called Mobile Suit Gundam.

    ^^^ that's it then. ZX6 will be my next bike. Looks like Yamaha will loose me as customer for future bikes. It's Kawker all the way now.

    This thread is plainly reiterating a fact that someone rightly put in the past - though Honda talks about power of dreams, it's Kawasaki who's putting genuine efforts in helping us, lesser souls, realize our dreams.

    That's me on the right :P just woke up and went there.
    But Kawasaki is the only serious Japanese company who wants us to have superbikes. Not like others who just show us big feasts and throw some leftover bits.

    Agree.

    This is because the "others" have automatic scooters and commuters to sell (that too in mind boggling numbers). The Big Bikes (for the "others") are just to provide halo to their smaller ones.

    Funny you say that, because the Ninja 650 came after the Hyosung was a huge hit, and suddenly Kawa deciphered that there was a huge market for 5 lakh bikes.

    Does anyone logically expect the ZX6R (if launched that is) to be costing any less than the Daytona?

    Yes myself. Here is the logic;

    1) Modi appoints a new external affairs minister.
    2)He turns out to be a closet biker(apart from being a closet pracharak)
    3)India Japan are forming even closer ties these days to together counter the Chinese aggressive overtures.
    4)Modi plans a Japan visit/Abe plans a India visit
    5)Our closet biker minister slips in high custom/homologation duties issue in the agenda to be discussed
    6)India Japan sign a pact to abolish duties for Japanese motorbike imports
    7)I line up at Kawa showroom
    8)I ride away on a ZX-6R
    9)I wake up
