Re: TheBike : Honda CBR1000RR 2012 !

A very practical SBK, and a looker. however is this going to be the new look one? or the previous iteration?

Be prepared to shell out atleast 1-1.25L for proper riding gear that goes with the bike.

20-25k for helmet, 40k for jacket, another 30k for pants, 7-10k for gloves and 15 odd k for boots.

And please do invest in them. They will save your skin in any unfortunate events.

However USP of this bike is that its really practical, has a lot of low end grunt, and pretty manageable in traffic as well. And when you give it the go, it stays there with the best.

How much if I may ask damages in BLR? ( I am guessing nearly 14L? )

I basically started considering the R1. But the more I talked to people in the know, the more I felt worse about the R1 until someone suggested me to have a look at the Fireblade. Have not looked back ever since.

The process is very simple. First decide on what bike you want. Call some of the dealers and ask around the financial points (what is the cost on road, loan options available, different rates of interests, etc.)

Normally the dealer has arrangement with agencies which are ready to offer 70% loan very easily (minimum documentation) but have a large rate of interest. So you might need to look around and check with banks like HDFC, ICICI etc which will most likely offer something like 7% p.a. (Approx 13% reducing) for around 80% of the total bike value.

Once these things are sorted, there is nothing much to it really. Just make sure you are sure and certain of what you want and make it very clear to the dealer.

Orion motors opposite the Forum Mall (Christ College side) has some good riding gear if you are interested.
I am sure Planet DSG can also get you some good stuff however it wud be best if you made a trip to Pune for that.
Hhaha. Not in a million years man. Don't want to be dragging and shit. What's the point.

Orion motors is a Yammy dealer. I was talking to them when I was in the market for a R1. Might check out the gear they are carrying.

Heard about Planet DSG as well. But have to go and buy the helmet personally. No stock sized helmets fit me given the size of my skull.

You read the situation right. My family (particularly my dad) is against this purchase. However, I decided to go ahead with it because this way I only have myself to blame down the line. I didn't want to get to a stage in life when my priorities force me not to get something like this.

Your dad should go for this. Trust me. The joy in his face will be totally worth it. He will feel 20 years younger when he swings his legs around the saddle and revs the motor up (my wife wanted me to go for a Harley, but the negatives far outweighed the positives and the fireblade won out.)

With great power comes great responsibility. Right? I believe my past experiences have taught me a lot.

It's the 2012 model. New look. My wife fondly likens it to "Black Fury" from "How to Train a Dragon." I agree with her 100%. I love the look.

Any particular recommendations on those items? I would love to do some research. I don't want to forgo safety. At any cost.

I sided with the Fireblade instead of my first love R1 for that very reason. Also, the CBR is known not to heat as much as the R1 in Indian conditions, plus is more pillion friendly (which is an important factor for me.)

Damages so far = 16L+
