On 15th April 2016 two xBhpians embarked on an India roadtrip on Triumph Motorcycles in search of #100Motorcycles which were unique iconic and rare by searching for them on OLX and the community at large. Motul Lubricants and CEAT Tyres powered their journey along with Wrangler Denims adding to the style quotient. We hope that this will paint a picture of India as a diverse and rich motorcycling nation in the times to come. Know More

We all love things which are not possible! Teleportation, invisibility, time travel! We then use our imagination to give birth to characters who can live larger than life and inspire us and others. Since childhood, like millions of others on this planet, we have been inspired by such characters. Batman, Superman and more recently the Transformers.

They are an amazing creation out of a creation by mankind – automobiles. Imagine our surprise when we saw another motorcycle modeled after a comic character, this time the Bumblebee and Megatron from the Transformers. During our search for #100Motorcycles we bumped into these two Hayabusas in Bangalore, and also got a chance to ride them (thanks to the owners Hemanth Muddappa & Hardik Gowda). It is always a pleasure to meet people with similar eccentric tastes!

The two Hayabusas were a contrast of colours and the characters they were modelled after – the good (Bumblebee) and the bad (Megatron). And you cannot think of a better motorcycle than the Hayabusa to get this fantastic treatment. A legendary bike, which comes to life with the Transformer theme!

These two machines had stupendous road presence with their 330 rear and the Brocks Alien ear splitting exhaust. You cannot miss this on the road, especially in India! We loved the rear seat cowl detailing which had the glowing etched motifs of the two transformers. The Megatron won the battle for the day, not because it is ‘evil’, but because of the colour and the chrome alloys. It just looked mean!

One would expect that it would be a nightmare riding these bikes, especially through corners. But actually once you got used to them within a few miles, you forget the 330mm rear. We rode in the chaotic Bangalore traffic without any hassles. Except the attention was unbelievable. Think a Hayabusa, and then think a Hayabusa like this!

After a day of riding the Megatron and Bumblebee it was stunning to get back onto a regular Hayabusa. It felt super light and the rear tyre looked like that of a cycle! No kidding! These two motorcycles, inspire you to do something crazy with your own motorcycle as well…
