V650 from Mumbai - India

Hi all,

I purchased the Versys 650 (2017) Candy Lime color in Nov'17. Im from Mumbai - India, not sure how many Members here from my country.
During some of my searches, this wonderful Forum appeared many times, and I see lots of knowledgeable & cordial people herein.

regards,
Pranav

Welcome, Pranav, from Texas, USA. I might be mistaken but I thought there was a law in India that required every motorcycle owner to purchase at least one Royal Enfield.

Hahaha, sure that isn't such law, but yes Royal Enfield is like mainstream for the "Biker" community, its a cult. RE has captured a significant market share, and its THE motorcycle people look when even thinking of tours to mountains (eg Ladakh / Spiti circuits in North India along the Himalayas).
And then there are the regular "Commuter" bikes, which are used by most of the people for actual commuting for their work purposes (some even do real big tours on them!), sure they hold the largest market share; some popular brands are Hero (Indian), Honda, Bajaj (Indian), TVS (Indian), Yamaha, Suzuki, Mahindra (Indian), etc.

Since this is my thread about my Kawasaki Versys 650, enough talking of other bikes :-) ! (the other two wheeler I have is a TVS Wego).

in my next post will share some pics of my bike.

pcpranav - I had the good luck to visit your country while in the RCAF, back in '70 I believe, visiting New Delhi as well as YOUR home city, but it was called Bombay back then.

नमस्कार from France!

A quick bonjour from France !

I spent several months in India nine years ago, lived in Pune, and had the chance to visit some superb places in Maharastra and accross India.

Now I can at least understand some rules of the cricket... (ICC20 at that time)

Here in France RE is also gaining market share, with their Bullet 500, Continental/Interceptor 650, and Himalayan 410.

Love the big Versys graphic below the tank. It has me wondering if I could put one on my '15 650. Actually searched bikebandit to see if it was available, but didn't find it.
