Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.

The 302R is the only fully faired motorcycle available in the country. It commands a price tag of NPR 7,20,000. The bike is powered by a 300cc in-line twin cylinder water-cooled DOHC engine.
