Second place in the eight-lap race was enough for Vijay Singh, who is the man behind the famous Rajputana Customs to seal the championship. Vijay rides a Daytona 675R which comes with higher spec, fully adjustable suspension and a quickshifter, among other things. The Daytona displaces 675cc but since it has just three cylinders, it still qualifies to race under the 600cc category.
