Please note: This is NOT a what bike query.

This thread is to discuss the apathy of the Indian Bike manufacturers to make bikes for anyone above the 5'10" frame.

Be it any manufacturer, they always ignore us, the tall people.:mad:

Bajaj
Pulsar family: too small
220: fairing interferes with tall riders knees.
Avenger: looks too small with a tall rider on top
Pulsar 135: anybody above 4 Feet looks like he is riding a miniature bike.

Hero Honda:
Hunk: too small for tall riders
Xtreme: acceptable
Karizma: default option for anybody above 6 feet
ZMR: again for people above 6 feet.

Honda:
Stunner: acceptable
Twister: anybody above 4 Feet looks like he is riding a miniature bike.
Unicorn: too small
Dazzler: again too small

Royal Enfield
All models suit tall riders, but who buys REs these days?:confused:

Suzuki
GS150R again too small

TVS
Apache family: too cramped for tall riders

Yamaha
FZ 16: too small
R15: do I even need to say a word?

So that brings me to my main question.

Why are manufacturers coming up with bikes of the size of Twister and Pulsar 135(both cramped) rather than coming up with bikes of the size Karizma?

I never denied that.

And this is NOT a what bike query.

All I want to know is why do Indian manufacturers ignore tall people while working on and designing bikes.
