Indian bikes nowadays are made and marketed as made for racing bikes.
The Yamaha YZF R15 is an out and out race track bike. Even the TVS Apache RTR 160 has been developed and is being marketed as a made for the race track bike.
Believe me both the Yamaha R15 and the TVS Apache RTR 160 has ultra sharp handling and high revving engines suitable for the race track.
Yamaha had sponsored an R15 TRack Championship in which R15 owners could race with each other. Honda India followed a similar race for its CBF Stunner 125 and recently TVS have also decided to market its bikes by letting the owners of the Apache Race on the race track.
And Uncleshoiab, the CBZ which you rode while in India was the first bike which started the biking revolution in India for higher cc bikes. But even the original CBZ has been stopped production since it couldn't match the performance of the Pulsars. But the CBZ has made a comeback as the CBZ Xterme 150 cc.
