    Can someone tell how are the New R15 headlights as compared to the V1, specially on highways, as i heard they have changed the projectors.

    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.

    Hi Srinath,
    I don't think there is any improvement. But I thought the lighting is sufficient. Liked the dual horn though...

    Default Mileage

    R15 v2's company claimed/ARAI claimed average fig. is 46kmpl while those of v1 were 50kmpl. So in real world 35 kmpl should be expected, i guess.

    Hello guys I paid the full amount for the Bike today.
    I'll be getting my black r15 tomorrow evening.
    Please tell me or point me to a good PDI that I should perform before delivery.
    Thanks.

    You are one lucky guy, I must say!
    Great to have it so soon!
    Congrats bro!
    The waiting is so long here!

    Now you are real lucky ..... And so are we ... The sooner the bike comes the faster we can get reviews ..... (just kiddin) anyways I guess the PDI would be done by the them before delivery or else the usual brake free play, all electricals, etc..etc.. But am guessing Yamaha would have the best inspection done .... So good luck .... And anxiously waiting for the first review ... hehehe

    Maybe I was hoping too much but was wishing the next version of R15 came with complete projector kits

    +1 Karizma zma's ARAI claimed fig is also 45 n it gives around 35 in real world conditions....

    A larger rubber at the rear and slight increase in weight seems to have caused the drop but its still quite descent for the performance gain.
