    Where are the big talkers from Hero? I guess they are busy in fighting the bankruptcy of EBR in US.
    It is disheartening to see these Indian companies unable to deliver 650 to 1100cc engine bikes to vast population aspiring to own one without breaking the Tijori! Now Honda has done a disservice to Indians by pricing this bike in 7L plus range, it is time for Bajaj and Hero to serve the Indian bike enthusiasts with a bike of similar capacity, at the price point of 2.5 to 3.0 L. Is it a dream or a reality? Only future time will tell!

    7.3 pretty competitive for an all new fully faired inline 4
