    Re: 2017 Honda CBR 1000RR Fireblade @ Rs 17.61 lacs

    Was super excited about the new Fireblade. It's my dream bike.
    But is it really worth 24 lakhs on road Pune? Should I sell my Z 800 which has no problems at all and buy this bike ?
    Z has satisfied me so well. Don't feel the need to buy a litre superbike.
    What funny times we have come to!

      There's almost a 1.5 lakh price difference between Maharashtra and Delhi ex showroom prices.

        So I went to the Honda showroom on the eve of Africa Twin launch. Told the manager that I am interested in the 2017 Fireblade. First he asked which bike do I own. His tone changed after I told him I have a Z800. He took my number and told me that I will contact you later. There was no contact whatsoever.

        Then called him 3-4 times. Everytime he was either busy or not answering. A few days back received a call that he will enquire and tell me. He has no idea about the on road price in Pune. He will let me know in some time. That was a week back.

        I am completely surprised by the response, I knew Honda has this arrogant attitude for normal bikes and scooters. The showroom people don't entertain potential buyers.

        But this attitude towards potential superbike owners is surprising. Why would I go for Fireblade after this kind of treatment?

            That same response made me took R15 instead of 250r. Better try from other dealer. That one is a hell of a machine. Congrats on your decision and do treat us with some awesome pics after you got the beast.

            P.S
            Do mail Honda about this response. The response will be quite different after that.
