Yamaha blew us all away when they unveiled the MT-10. Using an R1 engine and an R1 frame, the MT-10 is the R1's street-ready brother. It has a whole "Transformers" look going, and in the grey and florescent yellow colours, it is completely drool worthy. In the UK, the MT-10 is priced at roughly Rs 10 lakh, which is within reach of the GSX-S1000. Expect it to be way more expensive when it comes to India though.
