I am writing this on behalf of the actual owner whose name is Nimai Kumar Das ( A Friend of mine)
I am From Ranchi, Jharkhand
Got the bike on 22nd September first in the City at
On Road Price of rs 1,16,480
Take it as a initial review..
I Drove the Both bike i.e v1 and v2 and i feel that the handling is quite better from the last one.
Here also the bike was little better than the old one and i feel the difference in the initial pickup. The bike is in Run in period so cant say much about Performance and Top Speed. Will update it later.
I think most of you already seen the bike in flesh or in the photos. ( in my views pics don't do justice with the looks)
Those who says that the rear part is over worked i don't think so it just matches the bike and gives it more aggressive look.
here comes the pillion part yes the rear person will feel uncomfortable in long rides and whenever i breaks my friend just pushes me from back and u cant help you can only hold the rear side panel and even it slips sometime.. i think yamaha can add a under grab just link twister.
Weather you driving or siting behind both feels like Super Bike all the people just cant help them looking the bike and it just a awesome experience. Specially Red and White. The Dealer also told me that the black with grey can be turned into Black and white it will cost 3000rs (rear portion and low fairing can be taken off easily and u can fit any colour)
Problems Faced till now
The Gear is not that smooth and neutral light doesn't go off in any gear.
Taken the Bike to Service center and the Gear problem is now almost less line 70% but 30% i still say its little hard and not smooth but i am satisfied and the neutral light is still to be checked..
Here is some Pics if you have some Question you can ask.
