    I think this thread will become more alive after 1:1 comparison between the V1 and V2, but the V2 should atleast have done 2 services it means around 4000 kms. Till that time its only about pics and purchases.

    Gray-haired riders don't get that way from pure luck.

    You dont stop riding because youre getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

    +1^^
    V2 has too be at least 4000-5000 kms old to compare it to the V1 for a more better result in a comparo.

    @Azet: Thanks for the information dude! I can wait until I get something concrete about the top speed. I do not need a saree guard at all and tyre hugger is an eye sore, so I'll take them out.

    Incorrect I must say, to take care of the performance, its ecu has been remapped this time and surprisingly it would have a better top end than its older sibling. Please wait for this news to be tested on real rides.

    Your bike is way better than babes,only thing is that you need a proper vision to mull over this fact. :D

    Default Confusion

    I booked my Marlboro R15 V2 like 15 days ago and the dealer says it will be delivered in mid December. Should I ask him to give the delivery in Jan 2012 instead? Selling a 2012 bike later will be easier than selling a 2011 bike even though the difference is just of 15 days. Sometimes I think I should cancel and go for the CBR250r since I've already driven a 150cc bike before. But then the quality of the Indian CBR250r is total crap compared to the ones in the UK and US. The quality of R15 V2 is real good and the looks are awesome.

    I would ask them deliver the bike in 2012.
