    Dude, whats it with you? (please have a look at post #70) I have already asked moderators to close it if its necessary....
    Do you really think in your rational senses that I would write such big of a requirement list when I was not interested in getting a bike. (I mean who does that ?? )

    I am perfectly happy with my choices for TDs.

    @Mods- please close this thread

    nothing more to say.

    this thread has reached 9 th page,we had lots of unnecessary fights and you are not yet resolved.hence my conclusion.
    i should have written that you are not interested in getting a bike right now. peace
    and the question remains why do i race?
    every finishing line is the begining of a new race.

    Monoshock's like the ones used in Uni and FZ when fitted on a bike like the ZMA and ZMR, causes the bike to wobble at speeds which they are meant to handle effortlessly i.e 110Kmph+. And if you're expecting the same quality and feel from a monoshock, which the Karizma's dual shocks provide, then obviously the manufacturing cost of the bike would shoot up.
    And another arguable point of sticking with dual shocks is that, in a country like India we actually do need them more than we think we do.

    And about liquid cooling, why fix something that its not faulty/broken??? The Karizma is a swell performer in its current state, so why would the manufacturers add something thats not necessary which would obviously bump up the manufacturing cost as well???

    may be they should start providing them to start entertaining rider
    You want entertainment, go get a GameBoy or better a PlayStation.

    why not r15,cbr 150r,rtr 180,rtr abs.why it always have to be a zma?
    RTR ABS > Cause the rider never specified the need for ABS.

    RTR180 > Cause its top speed is 124Kmph and the OP wanted 125Kmph.

    R15 > Cause its top speed is 135Kmph and costs close to 1.20L.

    CBR150 > Same reason why I skipped the R15.

    Now tell me, your shoe size is 10, so if 11 was available at the same price would you opt for it, thinking opstimistically that it'd benefit you, if by some supernatural force your leg grew a size over night???

    Yup. Thats exactly why people still opt for the ZMA.

    Not now I guess. Cause my rides almost a year old and have suffered a few spills and yet the pastics havent broken. Infact all fibers are the ones that came with the bike.

    Not completely hypothetical, cause while riding the Uni on a straight road (Kerala Xbhpians - Asramam Link Road) the bike started waving, so I assumed that the same scenereo would happen and that too at an amplified rate when riding a ZMA. Since its faster and heavier.

    actually i have one.
    Lucky you. My folks wont allow me get one since it costs 9k.
    Though had a GameBoy Color when I was a kid.

    what a logic!!kudos,take a bow.
    Thank you, thank you.... But seriously. It would literally kill you if you take it past 110Kmph on our highways, the bike gives tremendous feedback which for some riders is unacceptable.

    afaik monoshocks are better at cornering,at high speeds bike wobbles at corners if suspension is set softer.stiffer suspension are better at high speed.
    now about amplified rate in case of zma theory ,i seriously don't find any logic.

    took a rtr to 129 kmph speedo indicated.see i am still alive.
    the throttle response of rtr is a boon in city traffic with its short foot print and light weight.
    and the question remains why do i race?
