Just want to point out that the bike in the pic is NOT a diesel bike. That is in fact a Hero Honda Karizma 250. It is a 250cc air cooled single that is blast to ride in crappy Mumbai traffic. It was introduced years ago as one of the first bikes to break the 200+ cc barrier. Back then you would be hard pressed to find anything above 150cc. Interesting thing is back then when gas was about Rs. 30 / liter, there was hardly any choice in "high displacement" bikes. Now when gas is more than doubled at Rs. 80+ / liter there are plethora of fun & larger displacement bikes. Manufacturers are now pushing to introduce 400cc models. Honda with their CBR & KTM with the Duke. Kawasaki already sells the Ninja 250 & 650. Oh well.
