Due to minute calculations and overcoming major challenges, an ultimate body balance has been produced. The agile running performance is extremely exciting. The superior performance brings riding feel, which when you ride provides you an emotional high. Thus this is unique not only for the rider but also a source of great fascination to the onlooker. With the FZ16 you have the sensation of ruling the streets to your hearts content.
Are they writing about a motorcycle or about Melissa George?

Why not name it the "Water Buffalo Cobra Cruncher & Moose Elephant beer stealing village destroyer"?

Something the Indians can indentify with?

You won't be cracking jokes when India rules the world. Them dudes work and I mean 20+ hours a day. They're like terriers too; once they lock on to something they won't let it go. They have PhD's and other post-graduate level people doing my job in India; there is such a supply of workers the employers can really pick and choose.

It would be a slick marketing ploy to offer buyers of the Honda Curry deliveries in 30 minutes or less.
