    I wished Ducati bring in their Monster 696 at 5-6 lakhs to compete against the Triumph Bonevilles, Kawasaki Ninja 650 R, Hyosung GT650 and HD Superlows.

    Bike to look for are the Duke and Bajaj 375cc one’s along side of the 500cc Honda models.

    They would be some game changer for their respective company.

      I agree!! Those are the showstoppers. And since Honda CB500 series is going to undercut the Ninja 300 series by a good margin in price, its gonna be a definitely show stealer…!

        thats true, Kawasaki is already sweating in the market due to the rivals ike CBR 250 R.

          i dont know why and how motorbeam lists the 500cc products withing 3.5L price bracket, but if that really happens, they Ninja and any other 250cc makers (namely hysung) would be out of business i guess.

            No One, the CBR500R is made to be cost effective. Look at the hardware.

          • eklavya February 15, 2013, 2:17 pm

            if they dont bring CBR in 3.7 – 4 lakhs range, it will enter 650 range and noone will buy it

  • Mike November 30, 2012, 10:21 pm

    This is more of a wish-list. Last year too this site gave the prices and new launches, but none of the manufacturers really came up with any spectacular offerings except for tweaking existing models. When the Indian market being highly competitive and the buyers looking for low priced models. Sorry the next year is going to be the same. Nothing really new.

      @PRADEEP……..both of them are supersports bikes, they will be well over your budget…they costs almost the price of GSXR 1000 and that is the reason why they are not launched in india, since they won’t be considered VFM products in India. Performance wise when u compared these two bikes with a GSXR 1000 the difference is very minimal so they are priced so high. Practical bike for you will be the bikes i have mentioned if u are willing to shell out more money than go for Big GIXXER 1000, u won’t regret…..as there goes a saying “BIGGER IS BETTER” ;)

    Till date even after almost a year of this post, none of the important bikes have come out. Will India ever get these bikes. Bajaj has dashed hopes with the KTM 390 (long wait period). Suzuki Inzuma also not on scene. I think all this is bakwas. Just showing Indians some dreams.
