    TVS needs only Rs.8000 for its ABS, whereas, Honda needs Rs.25000 for ABS? What is this?

    Agree with Yila on the pricing of HMSI for the C-ABS on the CBR250R, the amount is way way too much compared to the TVS offering of the same on RTR180. Hope Honda realises its overpricing and does bring it down drastically to facilitate more Indian Bikers acquiring upmarket motorbikes like the CBR250R with more safety features like C-ABS

    I wouldnt go for this bike…It actually didnt appeal that much. The specs aint that sharp and so is the power to weight ratio & the max torque as well. I will rather wait for brands like TVS to bring in of the same cadre… anywyz India market is goin to get a really gud priced racing bike from hyosung, the gt650r, which is going to be a real catch for anyone who is looking out for some speed. Its got all the specs & history that one could expect out of a midlevel racing bike…packed with 73bhp, 0-100 in over 5.4 secs, max speed of 220, one can only imagine what it wud be to feel riding one… n its not tht costly as well… the exshowroom is gonna be 4.5 lacs. for 650cc bike thts pretty gud a price.n servicing also aint gonna be an issue.they are setting up a real gud network
