This list came from a lengthy post in Singapore Bike Forums. Too bad this website can't be big enough to give credit where it's due.

Thanks SE, I just found that link. Although I am a frequenter on the SBF but had never come across that page, probably because I straight away go into the "Naked Bikes" section :) .

My ride is the Bajaj Pulsar 180. What is your ride?

Wow! Awesome bike, SE. The engine looks so similar to Triumph Rocket III

The Rocket III is an inline longitudinally mounted 3 cylinder machine with all cylinders up. Total cc's about 2400.

The Valkyrie is a flat 6 (think of Porsche) longitudinally mounted 6 cylinder machine with three cylinders each side. Total cc's are 1522.

Rocket III has significantly more torque but this is a better handling bike

Just money... and patience... some models of bikes are hard to find... Valkyrie, for instance.

Valkyrie looks extremely nice. A pleasantly obese V-rod :) Is it difficult to find because the market size in SG is limited or for some other reasons?

A different thing: I am contemplating buying a new bike in 2 years or so but with a focus on everyday commuting and the basic fact in mind that I will have to park it in public or unsecured carparks. Judging from a number of scratches collected only and exactly in this kind of places when I was not around I would have no heart to own this kind of icon.

The Valkyrie was never an official import in SG... it was a grey market item... my speedometer is registered in miles, not kilometers. Since they were imported, most were exported... there are only 10 to 15 left on the island.

I try to avoid public bike parks as much as possible. This is my daily commute but usually to office buildings where the parking is decent. I absolutely will not go near Far East Plaza, and I'm not above taking two spots when they are tiny.

Scratches and dings are a fact of life in SG if you're going to ride... too many idjuts who don't care.

Looks like a pretty decent app. Thanks. Is the SBF list the source for this app?
