    Thanks a lot for the info! Then it means end of November, uh? Then just in time for my Birthday in the first week of December Lousy that I have to wait for such a long time, but I guess I'll have to grin and bear it! I might be in Oz around that time, so I'll look to pick up some after market parts which Sunny suggested in his review today!

    Question for anyone who knows: Does putting an aftermarket clip-on (not the entire exhaust) void the warranty of the Ninja 250 in India?



    No, doesn't seem feasible. This looks like the 1.85 lakh speculation for the Ninja 250R ! Even if it does, I won't be buying it as the Ninja 250 will be a more comfortable and practical bike than the R6. Unless, the bike is a 2010 FZ6R, then that changes things...
    Regarding the colours, the only colour all the PBK showrooms seem to be showing is the green. The black is not visible in the showrooms anywhere at all if I am not mistaken. Hence, I have found black good from the photos/wallpapers I have seen of it.








    Its good that you will be enjoying the visit to australia during the waiting time and will be better to know if you can book, and even get the bike (ambitious) before or on your birthday

    And yes, I am surprised why the Bike magazine quoted the price of R6 to 3.6 lakhs whereas it quoted the R1 price rightly (about 10.5 lakhs).
    My favourite will still be Ninja for the fact that it is as convenient to handle it in traffic as on highways.

        I went to Pune PBK today and booked mine .

        Message for Neo88 - The finance options are available and they are in the tune of the following :

        20-40% down payment followed by installments for 24 to 36 months. There are a number of permutations and combinations and the PBK guy told that if you call Pune PBK tomorrow, they will give you details on the finance options

        -Ashutosh
        Thanks bro i will call him tomorrow and get the details ... thanks a lot once again ...... and congrats !

              Not yet... this pictures from one of the autoblogs. This is the Black Indian Ninja 250, complete with a license plate in the front.

                    KBX brakes are actually pretty decent, having the tie up with brembo and all, and i don't think the oil itself is of bad quality. i think they problem lies in the packing and storing. the kbx brake fluid containers are of pathetic quality and its safe to assume similar quality levels while packing the fluid. brake fluid will absorb moisture even from the little bit of air remaining in the bottle, so imagine what it will grab if left exposed during the packing stage.

                    anyway, brake fade, if you are talking about lower braking levels when the brake disc and/or pads are hot, are usually indicative of poor quality pads or disc materials, but can also be due to the fluid having absorbed too much moisture. when hot, the moisture will evaporate into water vapour which is compressible unlike liquids and this will usually result in spongy brakes. if your brakes are NOT spongy, and have a good firm feel (if the feel was firm in the first place, when it was cold), and your brakes still fade, then you need to look at the disc and pads for warping and poor quality. oh, and check the wear limits too.

                      They do not fade when cold. Not even during normal trips. But if I use the front brake solely for some duration, they start fading and become spongy. They return to normal if I do not use them for about 10 mins. I guess there is water in there. Seals are original and I have replaced them myself. No warping. Pads still have some life left in them.

                      Err, i think its getting OT here! Anyways thanks for helping!

                          black also looks nice, if not more than the green....it would be better to buy black as many would prefer buying green and there is no exclusivity...also the delivery of black colour may be faster than the green one which will have demand(just my guess).....

                          • Folks,

                            Just booked myself a Ninja. I've been told the bike would be delivered by this month after RTO clearance, but I'm not very particular on it. Planning to take it a little later as I'm presently in Pune.
