  1. 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
    DSCF3304%2520%2528Large%2529.
    ...umm yes you see that right , it has a slightly rusty chain :oops:
    DSCF3313%2520%2528Large%2529.
    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.
    DSCF3299%2520%2528Large%2529.
    But i also liked the Red Ninja 250 and of course the new ER6N is better looking with that new Frame.
    DSCF3347%2520%2528Large%2529.
    DSCF3352%2520%2528Large%2529.
    Kawasaki had also a KLX 250 displayed and it looks as if it was better made...also no rusty chain :)
    DSCF3336%2520%2528Large%2529.
    In the bigger Bikes my new Favorite is the FZ8N ...great looking Bike
    DSCF3399%2520%2528Large%2529.
    And the Adventure Scooter was simply amazing(its based on the new TTX scooter).
    DSCF3381%2520%2528Large%2529.

    Tiger/Big Bull had nice chicks and the above posted bikes displayed.
    DSCF3456%2520%2528Large%2529.
    DSCF3457%2520%2528Large%2529.
    DSCF3458%2520%2528Large%2529.
    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.
    DSCF3270%2520%2528Large%2529.
    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.
    Ducati was there too and i know now that the 795 is too small for me :-(
    DSCF3578%2520%2528Large%2529.
    BMW had some of their usual Bikes there but also brought their Maxi Scooters....not sure the price though.
    DSCF3583%2520%2528Large%2529.
    I went through the cars too 'cause our triton becomes 5 years , and i like the Panamera :cool:
    DSCF3531%2520%2528Large%2529.
    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)

    Will post more info & details in this thread :http://tigersachsclub.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=848

  2. need to correct myself...that yellow/black Cbr is actually the CBR150R ( not the CBR250R)
     
  3. Thanks for the photos.
     
  4. 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?
     
  5. 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.

    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 ...
     
  6. Thanks for the update and pics

  10. David nice photos .... but did you notice there was a motor-show going on?

    Chang Noi
     
  11. 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.

  12. changnoi, you probably didn't quite understand my post, i actally confirmed..the retro is a copy of the honda cub not sure if it is 99.9% though :)...as for swapping parts i dont know some fit some don't i was trying to fit one deco made for the cub and that bloody thing wouldnt fit . ...for sure the engine-parts cant be swapped :) .
     
  13. changnoi, tiger does have designers on premises....umm you were at factory tour with us, weren't you?
     
  14. I like the little Tiger but you can't deny there is some copying going on.

    Harley Davidson Forty-Eight

    Tiger Forty-Eight

    277969=9998-DSCF3270%20(Large).
     
  15. 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 .
     
  16. now that i mentioned vespa....in the limited time i was at the show i havent seen them i think on bangkok motorbike fest they werent either, i found the bmf more variety of motorbike brands

    Mags wheels for your car

    277993=10057-IMG_1623.
     
  23. Where's the mag wheels?
     
  24. 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?
     
  25. 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.
