This is a list of some of the customers of Bharat Forge in India. They are huge, being the worlds second largest forge.
Some of us might be surprised looking at the list of customers.
Next time we we buy new Mahle pistons we know that the box is original BMW.

Bharat means India. (icydk.) :-)

Friend of a friend at work here imported a new Royal Enfield Bullet from India. About $3500 including import duty, etc. (Based on current South African Rand $ exchange rate. Probably even better if you convert from $ to rupees.)

It's not the first time it's been done, or he'd have had to pay about $3000+ for the SABS (SA Bureau of Standards) to homologate it.

I was there for 3 weeks in Jan/Feb last year. I'm thinking of going back again next year and getting a new bike there, selling it when I go.
