    And you are one lucky guy i know in India
    Since you have your ASC nearer to the Honda Wing world, it would be a special care for you and your bike
    Well the scenario is entirely different in CHENNAI and COIMBATORE (Honda and Suzuki)
    They should open a dedicated Super bike showroom/ service center, thus they will get a good sales in south too!

    Great! You have some options left and they are available to buy in India.
    Pilot Road 4 (Strong suggestion)
    if you dont like that Tyre pattern and a thought comes into your mind that it doesn't go with the bike's stance. then u can Stick with Pirelli Angel GT.

    Well if you are going to take it on week ends, then it may long last at least 10 to 12K i guess.

    Yeah, I agree in terms of location NCR guys are blessed with very good support from Honda.

    Yeah, The only issue I have with the PR4 is the looks. Lets see what I get.
    Thank you for the advice brother.

    CHEERS!!

    Hey Rachit, just wanted to confirm, does the bike get very hot in bumper 2 bumper traffic like the Iron 883?
    And how is the ride in terms of pillion comfort? Me and my wife are stuck between the iron and the cbr just because of the pillion comfort...Ur views would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    I have not ridden the Iron 883, so unfortunately I wouldn't be able to draw a comparison.
    Secondly, this is a very debatable topic, because everybody has his own threshold of considering something hot.

    In my opinion, the CBR does get hot. You keep standing in 2-3 traffic lights and the fan will start blowing in full swing.
    I have been stuck in 30-45 mins long bumper to bumper traffic in summers as well, the bike didn't stop or overheat but it was hot.
    The only comparison I can draw is Panigale 899, because I saw that one heating up once. 899 just gets way too hot too soon. CBR is better than 899.
    Also I think Ninja650 is better than CBR650F in this department. The ninja does not heat up as much.

    The pillion seat of the CBR650F is pretty comfortable, although its a sportish bike not sure how fair it is to compare pillion comfort with a cruiser like Iron.

    My best suggestion is for you to test ride. Take your partner along and then ask for her feedback. The Wings dealer in Nariana has 2 test ride bikes.

    Best of Luck.

    CHEERS!!

    Thnx Rachit.
    Well we have taken the test ride on both d bikes. My wife says that CBR is comfortable but is skeptical about long rides. Still contemplating between the two, if we decide to buy the Iron, it will be a used one as the price of a new one is over our budget. My mind still says CBR though!

    Of the 2, I would choose the CBR for the sort of riding that I enjoy.

    Best of luck for the purchase!!

    Don't buy the Iron... Harley brakes are an issue and their attitude is even worst. But the CBR its a very good bike and you will not face issues on the long run. I did a 100 kms ride recently on my friend's bike and was bowled over. But then I decided to buy the Versys due to its Adventure settings. Should have my bike by 9th April.

    Rachit - Thanks a lot for your help the other day when we spoke over the phone. Your advice did help me a lot in deciding the bike.

    Well you see, it's call that me and my wife are going to take together as you cannot argue with the home ministry!
    My heart is with CBR
