Kudos to the Lals to have the foresight and honesty to see that the future of the company maybe bigger than their capabilities. India has a manufacturing and export structure that is growing exponentially and RE is in place to be part of that. I watch with interest.

I don't know anything about Dasari.

I am happy to see Lal gone. I have seen his emphasis to be all about "cheap" but not about "good". They knowingly built junk internals into their bikes for many years because buyers couldn't see what was inside. To some extent they are still doing it.

Hopefully Dasari will understand that what is inside the bike is as important as the styling.

What junk is in the new bikes ? If you have solid info on design flaws, we need to know.

Okay, I don't have info on the Himalayan or 650 twins because I haven't had either of those engines apart yet. I have quite a bit of info on all the other singles, but it will take some time to write it all. I will add a bit at a time as I have time. Perhaps it might be better placed in a technical thread because there will be a lot of info.
