Yep. It's a big jump for me. 200 cc Pulsar to 999.8 cc of pure madness. However, my age will help me keep things in check.

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+
Got a friend in BLR who can guide you to the right stuff ( he owns a lot of gear himself, did a whole india trip on his ninja ). He would be the best person I would refer you too.

Congrats man. I love that more and more people are taking to responsible biking and therefore more and more bikes are coming to India.
I have always been a Bullet guy and thus the natural upgrade seemed to be a Harley or a Ducati cafe racer - the one from Tron.
However i got the chance to ride one of my friends Apache for a good couple of days and now my heart wants a SBK. :-)

I have heard it is better to follow a hieararchy when it comes to SBKs i.e. 250 to 650 to 1000 so that one can control the power of the vehicle better.
Unfortunately the cost of these bikes in India makes it a once in a lifetime purchase when it comes to SBK.
I have my heart set for the Ducati 650 for the moment, but who knows what one might buy when the day actually comes.

Congrats again and happy riding.

P.S. - I dont know the reason but nearly everyone i know who is interested in superbikes at one point or another considers the R1 as the only bike they will ever buy. This includes me too, that is until i saw the Ducati Desmosedici RR.

Yea, "The Doctor" (Rossi) made the R1 in particular, and the Yamaha brand in general very popular due to his winnings. You see about him endorsing it and naturally you want to have the same machine which a world champion drives. Sort of like a mental levelling of the playing field (the fact that he actually used to drive a M1 doesn't seem to matter to people.)

There are far better looking bikes compared to R1. And better performing as well. But something about the "affordable symmetry" of the bike appeals to the uglier sex! (thats us.)

I believe the Ducati 1199 Panigale is also extremely popular (among the more affluent) for the same reason.

Re: TheBike : Honda CBR1000RR 2012 !

Congrats Kiddo...All the best to you and your new ride. You can look at the following places for gear:
1. PlanetDSG.com
2. Performance Racing Store
3. Bachoo Motors

#2 and #3 have facebook pages where you can check out the gear that they offer.

PS - Which dealer did you buy it from?

Re: TheBike : Honda CBR1000RR 2012 !

Kido, yours is the ABS or the non ABS version?

Edit : Just saw, no traction control in Fireblade ? I was going to get the CBR1000R but now its between R1 and Gixxer

Re: TheBike : Honda CBR1000RR 2012 !

Congrats KidoM4N on choosing the CBR 1000 RR.

Do not compromise on the riding gear.

Also invest in some frame & fork sliders ,swingarm spools etc.They do help in case of any unfortunate tip over or minor fall.

Get the no cut kits for the frame sliders,they allow fitment of the sliders without cutting or modifying the fairing.

After running the bike in head out to the Chennai or Coimbatore track when they have a track day.

Yep... Not gonna compromise on the riding gear for sure. Have increased my budget to 1L for now.

Yep, keeping an eye out for these (frame/fork slider, swingarm spool.)

It was a conscious decision for me. I would rather have C-ABS than TC. Hence went with it. Very possible that the CBR1000RR 2013 model will have TC. So keep a look out.

And just to be clear, all Fireblades imported into India come with C-ABS.

Got the bike from Silicon Honda.

And thanks for the pointers. Will look at these dealers over the next few days to ensure I get the best bang for my buck when it comes to gear.
