    Default Superbikes available in india and upcoming models to be launched

    Hi,

    I would like to know which are the existing super bikes available in India. This could include both imports and the ones available directly through manufacturers(e.g Yamaha R1). I would also like to know details about upcoming super bikes to be released in India in the coming year and possible launch dates if they can be assimilated as well.

    Please approve this thread, I am sure other bikers would also be interested in getting this info.

    Default suzuki n honda.

    this auto expo ... rumors abuzz about suzuki unveiling gsx 1000 r that has been long in the tooth for now.
    honda may bring cb 250r... a trellis(or is it pseudotrellis??) frame 250 cc competetor for ninja 250.
    as far as kawasaki is considered, bajaj has cleared that ktm-duke bikes are on cards. that rules out any big ninja for the time being.
    also, of the jap big four, only kawasaki is the one that hasn t entered in indian market directly. hope they do it with a bang, like suzuki did with busa n intruder.

    Also to add, the Yamaha R1 currently available here is the 2008 one.. Its in the news that Yamaha will launch the 2009 R1 (in India) at the Auto Expo in Jan 2010..

    My views on the YZF-R15 V2.0: http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/news/198...tml#post699240

    The pleasure is when your rear wheel slides, and you bring it back; and when the front wheel lifts, you take your time bringing it back.

    The 250R is not a superbike by any means.
