    An Indian will always go for the higher displacement twin than a 250cc inline 4.

    Moreover the usable power band will also play a major factor.
    You can't keep the bike revving at 14 thousand rpm at all times on public roads, you will need a racetrack for that.
    So this will be a pure blood track focused tool. Considering there are less number of race tracks in Indian than our fingers and even the track focused bikes like RC390 and R15 spend all their life on public roads, this will not be a good choice for an average Indian biker.

    Having said that nothing is impossible if you have will. I myself tour on my R15 V2, so this can be used on public roads if someone is hell bent on it.

    Still I do hope they launch it in India, It would be a good crazy laugh if nothing else.
    yeah thats what i dont like . indian people got no chill .. always going for value for money thing .. when i was buying for v3 .. others were saying buy hornet buy glamour they are cheap. but i listined to my heart and bought v3 . same goes for rc125 people complain about its price but they dont understand the technology behind it . i would loved to buy the rc125 in future .. people will buy a outdated 600cc bike like tnt600 but not buy a highly advanced next gen 250cc which is totally out of league. VMF and bigger cc thats what indian peoples only knows. hope the next generation of young indians appreciate the new technologies. coz 4 of my college friends bought the rc125 despite it costs 1.6lakh and in person the bike is lit.. i have faith in the young generation of my fellow indians..

    Fair enough on the cost bro.

    But my more than a decade of experience on various motors say that it is still not possible to keep an engine revving at 14 thousand rpm to keep the bike in power band.
    As I told you before, I myself own a very rev happy 2014 R15 V2 which I am enjoying immensely since the last 6 years. It is hard to maintain a high RPM an Indian bike and I am talking about 7-8 thousand on my R15, forget about keeping a 4 cylinder pot spinning on 14 thousand RPM.

    Coming down to outdated 600 cc bikes, that is just laughable, a Ninja 650 or Z650 or a CBR600F or a CB600R are not outdated by any means, a 250CC costing just as much will not sell in good numbers, be it in India or abroad.

    Having said that, it is your money and by all means buy anything that makes you happy and brings you joy.
    It is just a matter of opinions and you don't have to make it a generation war. I'm 28 by the way.

    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    i dont know why you kept pointing on the 14k rpm range .. everyother superbikes or track bike like hayabusa , ktmrc390 r3 they can all rev high and can cross 180kmph. but that dosent mean people ride at the rpm all the time..
    its to use when needed ..so by your logic that means all superbikes are useless as they also rev 14-16k rpm and people should buy only commuter bikes that goes 60-100kmph.

    its not about sales figure .. some motorbikes are not to sell in mass .. its for the enthusiast.thanks for developing the motorbike community . now i got your point people should not change.. all people should buy a commuter bike . and if people buy a different bike then we should all laugh at him .. good. thanks and good bye.

    Nowadays even young generation wants higher displacement bikes, even school kids go for RC or Duke 390's nowadays.

    Aug for log bolte hain ki, paise kahan hai/bahot mandi hai.

    I've seen folks who wouldn't even have a learner's licence, driving Fortuner like a maniac & tuition going kids on RC. The worst folks are R15 and Duke/RC kids racing along the streets on weekends.

    Guys, let's keep it about the bike and not about others opinion on the bike. I would love to have this in my garage but that doesn't mean I would like to take it out every single time.
