    All you “designers” show some creativity. The seat was lifted from Ducati Scrambler. Pattern on the clutch cover was again lifted from Ducati Scrambler. So lazy, can’t even think of a scrambler exhaust? Total fail. What’s the point of this render when components are stolen out of another product? Guess the idea of this render was to attract more hits to the webpage. FAIL. So SAD that a huge country like ours’ with so much man power lacks imagination.

      huh! where is the comparison? Pulsar 400 will churn out 40hp at least, that’s 20 horses more than the himalayan junk from RE.
