Around $2,500 NZ retail in India so after our importers take their cuts they’ll be more like $5 or 6k like the Enfield that sells for approx $3,500 retail in India but sells for $10k here go figuire someone’s raking it inOctober 2, 2016 at 9:36 pm #14221Eben VenterGuest

This bike seems nice for a commuterOctober 2, 2016 at 11:36 pm #14224Paul Crash CarterGuest
Mmmm agreed I was in India and even doing the currency conversions in my head the NZ price seemed high. Basocally you take the rupee chop off the zero and divide by 4 and you’re still ahead. It is possible to make a profit and still sell them at a price of a GN250 which is about how advanced they are, The electric model above would be great but it would also need to be cheap…..October 3, 2016 at 11:36 am #14240Gary ReesGuest
Looks like it has a petrol tank?October 3, 2016 at 11:36 am #14241Eben VenterGuest
It does look like it. But I’m sure it might just house some electric circuit or maybe even just for the looks…October 3, 2016 at 11:36 am #14242Gary ReesGuest
Eben Venter : Yes, it will be for looks. Motorcyclists tend to be very reactionary, which explains the persistence of silly things such as the riding position, telescopic forks and exposed drive chains.
