    Lightbulb Bike for Us by Us

    Dear Bikers and Enthusiasts,

    It is quite sometime that i have seen rants on the pathetic bike scene in Pakistan - a country where a bike enthusiast can not get a reasonable bike with uptodate features without being ripped off and fleeced by the so called assemblers and hence ppl are forced to drive pre-historic crap till date or buy insanely priced rejects of the world. So to take matters in our own hands can we make a collaborative team among us to design a bike for US by US from scratch and then build a prototype to get a starting point and then afterwards convince a so called local assembler to produce limited amount of these units per-ordered by us on confirm booking. The similar steps by ADAM MOTORS in form of REVO was great but i guess introducing and competing in Car market is more difficult than bikes.

    I know its not a perfect plan and there are many loop holes, objections, cant do this and that and how to do that but i think that is inherent in every new idea and just needs unity to overcome it and atleast we have a platform in form of PAKWHEELS to make something even if only a prototype to show the giants what masses want and can do ...

    Just a dream ...

    A journey of thousand miles start from a single step !!!

    PEACE !!!

    We're in minority. Most people are more then satisfied with their 70cc bikes. And considering deplorable condition of our roads and mindless crazy traffic; even a 250cc bike is too much...
    Why Honda discontinued CD175/200's? POOR SALES. Why Kawasaki went bankrupt? POOR SALES. Why Yamaha discontinued RX115? POOR SALES. See? There's is no demand here for faster bikes. All we care about (as a nation) is fuel economy!!!

    Personally I think u should get local engineering company's to invest time and money. To make the humble locally produced bikes.. Get them to make high performance parts or complete engines.
    I. Pistons crankcases gearing carbs.
    Pakistan.. Toyota hilux..golf mk2 gtd..rolla 2.0d..nissian sunny.. Yamaha pw 50.. Coventry uk....audi v8 d11..golf mk2 rallye..honda crx..evo 8..golf mk2 gtd..Vauxhall insignia..

    You all might laugh at me but why not put a 200/220cc single cylinder water cooled 4 stroke rickshaw engines in a motorcycle chassis and give it a full fairing? A 200cc/220cc water cooled bike priced at 160K might prove successful. Just my humble opinion. I think they're fuel injected too... Not sure though.

    OP seems to be forgetting what happened to Adam Motors. Govt. never supported him and they eventually went off the radar.

    Don't get me wrong. I really admire innovators. But at the same time, i don't like seeing what happens to such people in Pakistan.

    Another example can be given for that "Energy Savers Maker" who asked for Govt support and wanted the product locally, with cheapest bulbs to our people ... instead, our Govt went to China and bought things at a much expensive rate.

    Another example: Fuel ... why do we purchase in Dollars?

    Yet another example: Why does Govt spends more on distributing Laptops instead of making the Educational Institutes a better places to lean.

    The bottom line is the same, which same moral. As long as we have "Corrupt" politicians with feudal system running the country ... NOTHING can be done for initiatives like these.
    Riders on the storm ... literally.

    No, we're good at copying stuff! Dozens of Pakistani manufacturers have copied CD70's and CG125. Bajaj Pulsar KIS KHAIT KE MULI HA!!!
    Seriously, Pulsars too are dated technology. Most Pulsars use air cooled single cylinder 2 valved carbed SOHC engines and aren't that much different then GS150's except they use 2 spark plugs instead of traditional 1. Only Pulsar 200 is new technology as it use a KTM Engine.
