I am sure you wont go and buy a XYZ tv even if the picture quality is way better than Sony/Samsung. You wont buy a Mobile from some local manufacturer even if they sell a quadcore processor for 7K where samsung/htc/sony sells for 25K. If you say you will, then remaining is not for you
You are comparing with foreign standard. Is there anything we have in foreign standard? In USA, you cant drive a car if your Airbag is opened/missing.
In India, you get even cars without side mirrors as an option. Forget about Airbag !
You get a good second hand car in and around 4000$ (Civic, accord, corrola etc). Here you do not even get an alto at that price :D
Booking : 6 months waiting period.
Do you know that Unicorn had a booking period of 6 months in Bangalore few years back. I think, there is a waiting period in Kerala for few two wheelers (Activa) even now . That does not mean that Honda did not work on improving activa. They have came up with many changes even though they have enough orders ! Swift diesel had 6 months waiting period. They also came up with new model. They did not wait till the waiting period drops completely to 'same day delivery' stage
Higher CC two wheelers are having some vibration. We do not have much choice as you cant expect a Harley for 1.5 lakh. If Harley gives a 300-500cc cruiser one for 1.5 lakh, i will chose that over RE. By the way, is there any bikes in 350-500cc in Indian market in this price range?
Did you change the speedo/tacho meter till now? Heard water goes inside and spoils the meter when giving for water wash. Is that covered under warranty?
