Looks good, but your background makes the bike hard to see.

Here's a couple tips:

1. Change the background. Never use black (unless it calls for it) and never use a true white.

2. Add some shadows.

3. I'm assuming you saved this JPEG straight out of Maya? Try saving out as a PNG and then changing it to a JPEG in another program, because Maya does a horrible job with JPEGs.

Wow, that looks a lot better! Did you export the JPEG from Maya again, because the image still looks a little low in quality?

In the render window at the top left, go to File> Save Image and save it as a PNG. Then, in another app (like PS), save it as a JPEG.

looks nice

the main thing that jumps out at me are the handlebars - they look far too narrow (as in across the bike width) than you would normally see on a racer bike.
I know the following image is at a slightly different angle but you get a good impression of the handlebar width on it:

Looks good man. Tickles has a point bout the handlebars, but it might just be your reference. Although if your reference is like that i would consider changing it anyway as i t does jstand out a bit.

But nice job

Default Ty for all your comments!

Actually this bike is one of my own bike which i bought in 1990. For reference i had a snap of the bike with me. It looks really similar to the snap. Actually the bike you posted for my reference is kinda futuristic , means a latest model. Anyways its really glad to know u guys liked it
Thankyou
