The Indian version is a carbed dual spark.  The US example is our standard EFI - even has the Avon tires...

It will never be approved in Cantafordia, and the pictures of the National PowerSports one is injected. I doubt that a carbed version would even be applicable in Europe. Carbs are dead, guys. They may use them on the 135,000 they sell in India, but the 2,700 export models will be injected.
There are several new colors coming up here very shortly. G5s are not included.

After reading some of the responses I think Kevin could make a killing with this bike.
One that would keep everyone happy! :)

Each bike would come with a small box attached.
Inside the box would be a dummy carburetor with some dummy jets.
This would allow the old school tinkerers to open the box every month or so and change the jets and twist the adjustment screws.

On a trip to the high elevations they could pull over to the side of the road and adjust the dummy carb too, just like the old times. ;D
