If they could sell those for $1,650 here, they would sell a lot of them. Interesting - KTM almost 50% owned by an Indian concern. Gotta love globalism eh?

Wondering what the point of 3 sparkplugs is in a 200cc single though.

Duken is correct, they could sell a ton of these for under $2K here in the States. I'm shocked a Brembo owned company makes a drum brake though!

Only if you're independently wealthy!

Seriously, does anybody know how to pronounce: "Bajaj?"

Is it: badge-adge? Bage-age? Bwahahahaha?

Thanks Mr. Duke. I think I'll ask one of our Indian programmers to say it too. We've got them piled like cordwood around here; might as well get some use out of them.

Crap, now I want some lamb biryani and a garlic naan for lunch....

Sounds like a pretty neat bike and it reminds me again how out of touch HD is trying to sell $30k land yachts over there. These things sell like cold beer at a Thai curry eating contest because they're cheap reliable and home grown, and with the Indian motorcycling and auto press fawning all over them they can't go wrong. Good for them.

Mr. Duke got the name pronunciation right. They manage to get at least one extra syllable in it..."Bah-jaghe" it is!

There are 1.2 billion people in India. If you sell one of those land yachts to 1 in 10,000 of them, that's 120,000 sales.
