SIZE AND PRICE may vary but craze for bikes among Bhopal youths is high — and growing. If 10-year-old Omar Farooq loves to ride his  ‘Avanti Kid Bike’, Muslim Ali boasts about zooming at 180 km/h on Indore-Bhopal road on his Honda CBR 600 RR. The first costs Rs 15,000, the second a whopping Rs 8 lakh.

“I love to play with the wind. The speed and balance of Honda CBR is so perfect that its riding is simply exhilarating”, said Ali. He bought Honda CBR 600 RR two weeks back from Singapore.

It was a memorable experience of my life.

I will try to do it again whenever I get an opportunity”, Ali said. Omar Farooq is no less thrilled about his single-seater petrol-driven bike. 

“The low height and weight of the bike has made it easy for me to ride. It thrills me as no other person has this bike in the City. My friends always ask me for a ride of this lovely bike”, said a proud Farooq.

Omar, whose kid bike has the maximum speed of 25 km/hr, said that rides the bike at slow speed.   Both riders can be seen riding their bikes on VIP Road in Bhopal in evenings.
