    Finally....just got my beast
    Its 69,100 on road Delhi...
    Guys just rode it for around 30 kms.Man it feels good.The riding position is great (im 5'8").Guess will be a good tourer.
    Torque is awesome, the bike will easily accelerate from as low as 30 kmph in 5th cog without any hassles.
    Brakes arr awesome....Yamaha has done their homework. Though suspension is a bit hard but can be adjusted.
    Driveability is very good, riding through the traffic made easier and enjoyable as never before.
    Did not test the pickup and top whack.......waiting for the runnin to be complete.

    Keep you posted with all the details and pics tomorrow...
    Happy Riding
    Cheers!

    Rohit, a BIG congratulations on getting the FZ-16. You are, for sure the first xBhpian to get the machine, and a first few ones in the whole of India, perhaps!

    @Sunny: Can we expect a photo-shoot of the "first" FZ-16 of xBhp?

    P.S: Will be waiting eagerly for a nice ride-report, not to mention the kind of attention (AND flurry of questions) that you are getting..ENJOY the "fame" Rohit, till it lasts!
