    Default A sensible choice?

    A coworker of mine put a down payment on this bike, a Yamaha(India) Gladiator SS. Having some time to kill, before we head to the beach, i decided to check up on the bike. I think he has made a sensible choice. What do you think?. The bike will cost him Rs. 51,240.00 on the road everything included. He chose the red color bike.
