As a brief comment...i found the BKK Motorfest actually better in terms of presence i missed Kunka ( KTM,MV Agusta) , SYM , Royal Enfield, Stella , Triumph ....at least i have not seen them . Need to point out that i only had just 2 hours there so i could have missed some .

The CRF250L was seen and i made some shots all around the bike

...umm yes you see that right , it has a slightly rusty chain :oops:
DSCF3313%2520%2528Large%2529.jpg

Personally i think the CBR250R is better made compared to the CRF250L ..... which leads me to some of my favorite bikes today . That was actually the Yellow/black cbr250r ....really beautiful like that.

But i also liked the Red Ninja 250 and of course the new ER6N is better looking with that new Frame.

Kawasaki had also a KLX 250 displayed and it looks as if it was better made...also no rusty chain :)

In the bigger Bikes my new Favorite is the FZ8N ...great looking Bike

And the Adventure Scooter was simply amazing(its based on the new TTX scooter).

Tiger/Big Bull had nice chicks and the above posted bikes displayed.

They still working on the F4-250 but it isn't too long until it can be had.
I sat on one of the Streetbombers and it feels pretty comfy . The King Kong 48 is a nice designed Bike too ...with an interesting way how they put the mirrors.

Stallion had a interesting selection displayed but in the end i got confused as many of them are just for show(not for sale)....but the Offroader which seems chinese does look not much different then the CRF250L ( at least the chain was not rusting) :)
DSCF3428%2520%2528Large%2529.jpg

Ducati was there too and i know now that the 795 is too small for me :-(
DSCF3578%2520%2528Large%2529.jpg

BMW had some of their usual Bikes there but also brought their Maxi Scooters....not sure the price though.
DSCF3583%2520%2528Large%2529.jpg

I went through the cars too 'cause our triton becomes 5 years , and i like the Panamera :cool:
DSCF3531%2520%2528Large%2529.jpg

Yamaha had a new Scooter there, it is called the TTX and i am not sure if i like the look of it...maybe my eye needs to get used to it first (although the adventure version looks nice)

I believe that Tiger needs to upgrade their design studio. In most of their bikes I see elements which seem to be taken from other bikes.

Are they made in China? Or designed by Chinese who don't have a clue about copy right infringement?

Tigers bike are made & designed in Thailand.... you think tiger takes elements from other bikes? Have a look on the Filano rear here :) ( thats the rear from the Streetbomber)

DSCF3377+%28Large%29.jpg


And which element was taken from other bikes on the f4-150? FYI Tiger used to make this formerly known Cagiva F4-150 in collaboration with Cagiva & MZ...i don't think anyone else is making this bike?

What i really trying to say .... there are so many copies running around that noone knows who copies who... Ryuka copied the Tiger Retro 110C which came a few years after Tiger launched the Retro 110C .... but the original design looks a Honda Cub ( but engine is a fourstroke 110C on the Tiger Retro vs the original Honda cub was a 2-stroke), which isn't produced anymore ( at least not here - nor available here)- ...but even slight variances let people claim to have their own thing... i find the Fino & Scoopy also quite "close" in terms of design ...

Come on Mbox the Retro 110 is a 99,99% copy of the Honda Cup, you can even swap parts! And there were also other people making this copy. Probably has something to do we copy-rights that are more as 50 years old? Or do you believe Tiger has his own design & research development department 50 man working? But better copy a good design as make an bad design yourself.

For the rest new motorbikes & cars seem all to come from the same design studio. Sometimes really like there is a big design-studio in China that designs cars & bikes for different companies.

I like the little Tiger but you can't deny there is some copying going on.

i like that one too, but its kinda small for me :) ....sure that too is a copied idea. copying ideas is happens a lot not only at tiger or big bull. thats why a vespa is to me very high regarded as a scooter, a fino or scoopy is just an attempt to make something like it, a copied idea.

by the way, big bull bikes is a own brand not owned by tiger... these bikes are made by tiger for big bull .

Even better! That thing looks HOT!!! - Is it the new paint scheme or a blinged-out one-off? A lot of bike for what - 78K?

it's a one-off i think....but it visualises something which shouldn't be too difficult to make locally. will fit both cbr's 150 &250, makes them look a lot better without a lot of costs involved i think. and if yellow isnt your thing just try the same style in the color of your desire.
