      "Which color looks best on this bike?"
      .................................................. ..........
      i personally like LE white the most, just try hard i think you will get this.
      For the Sunset Red, just see it from the side and the back then its awesome but from the front i don't like the single tone red color.
      Now coming to the Midnight Black (this is very decent color), if you don't want to showoff the bike for the security purpose then this is the color for you. As i got this color for the same reason.

But those bike will easily attains 80 km/hr and it starts struggling to go more Further speeds .

          Simple note - Short / Middle geared bikes are meant for initial pickup , where as Long geared bikes are meant for to achieve TOP SPEED in ease ..

          Hey SV! I do understand, and Thanks!
          Its just that I feel it loaded sometimes, when we need to overtake even around 7 K. Need to give her some more time.

          There is no solution for this problem ? I'm also going to become a owner for this bike on April 25 th 2012 ...... and if the same problem persists for me also means i'l be totally down ...

          Cheers S.V.Prasad
          No problem at all! Go to high speeds at high revs and you'll notice the difference! I went to 132 with very less vibrations! Its smooooth...

          I have done Two services until now and haven't specifically asked them to change the Air/Oil-filter, may be they are cleaning it at every service and I know for sure Oil has been changed.. I have no complaints on engine, its pretty healthy. Does changing Air/Oil-filter help reduce Vibrations??

          Also would be great if you elaborate on "Should clean the front sprocket and see" ... Did this help reducing the vibration in handlebar?

          Thanks..
          Exactly my point.

          They change the Oil filter during first service! Please make sure that your's is changed too.

          Me too waiting for the answer!

          there was slight vibes but negligible at that speed, it was around 8.5K rPm i guess. normal?
          Same here. 130 at 9K close, but negligible vibes.

          Yep! Rock steady man!

            I'm Vinaysh and I live in Chennai. I'm a biker at heart. I have been following this thread for a really long time. I really admire the kind of dedication and passion you guys have towards biking. There are some of you who are regular here and post valuable advice/tips. xBHP is the best biking community in India, thats for sure.

            Coming to the bike, finally since I have the money to buy R15 V2, I'm going to book it next month. This will surely be my last bike. Its an upgrade from a Pulsar 150 UGIII.

            I'm fully aware that color preference should be the owner/buyer's choice. But I would really like to hear from you R15 V2 owners the million dollar question - "Which color looks best on this bike?"

            Racing Blue - Ruled Out as I'm sure I don't want it because its too standard and common right from V1.

            Now the choice lies between:

            SUNSET RED and MIDNIGHT BLACK.

            Please suggest. I'm simply looking for something sporty, manly and classy. Something that will look fresh even after 5 years.

            Thank you SO much!

            P.S. I will go for the 50th Anniversary LE White IF it is available next month but as far as i know, its all booked/out of stock at every dealership i've enquired in Chennai. But, incase it isnt, I would have to go for one of the regular ones. I don't like the Fiery Red Edition with its flame graphics.
            I was in a similar confusion as yours! Black was the one I saw first in flesh (had seen Sunset red only in pics)

            Booked the Sunset Red (4 months waiting). I was desperate to get her.
            After 3 months, was getting the Black, but waited for Red.

            Auto-Expo showed us 2 new colors! The Fiery Red looks crappy in the Expo pics!

            After 4 months got a call from dealer stating that the Fiery Red has come to the showroom. I pounced on him saying "Even if you ask me to wait for a month, I'll wait, but I won't take that crappy color"
            But I was so wrong!

            Next day just casually visited the dealer, saw the LE Red standing in the Sun, and she just blew me off! I liked the color so much that took her home that day itself (Paid the money and took the keys; didn't even take the Papers! )

            Almost everyone whom I met, and who expected it to look shitty from the pics, actually liked the color!
            Lava Red!

            Here's some Pics:

            • ^Dint know yours was fiery red.
              It sure does look better live than in pics. Even your pics dont depict its true hotness.

              @The guy with the colour question: The 50th anni is Hot. Super hot. I have it and to me its the best colour in the whole wide world.

              So what you gotta do is have a look at all 5 of them and decide.

                  • Thanks to Shreyas, Daytona, ABikerAtHeart and others for your help. Yes, I'll try my best for White LE. If not, Sunset Red.

                    Fiery Red, I will definitely consider and try to have a look and decide.

                    Note: Yes, please don't quote the images in ur replies.

                    @ Mods/Admins, sorry for posting such big pics, won't happen again.

                      Its been 5 days that i have brought my baby R15 home.. 200km's odo. .Since 2 days i am facing some small issue, whenever the bike faces humps it makes some sound (kind of spring sound) i am doubting about shock absorbers.. has anyone faced this kind of issue?. Please help. I am planning to change the engine oil after 300kms.. Please let me know whether to use mineral or semi synthetic and the brand name too... It would be very helpful if someone can reply.

                        Go to svc straight for the sound and get the suspension softened.
                        Oil: Change to whatever grade the bike comes factory installed with.

                          hmmmm ok. i like spx too but i will take a look at SP 2 Gloves, costly but wanna check. Thanks

                          are you sure ? me too facing same situation, i hear that sound even if i go over the hump slowly. this is of the front forks.

                            Go to SVC at the earliest..Better keep softening of suspension as last resort as it would result in reducing her handling prowess unless and until suspension settings are actually not correct right now...
                            As for oil, R15 comes with semi-synthetic so dont even think of mineral oil..go for semi-synthetic..yamalube 20w50...

                              • I am a proud owner of a R15, purchased from Orion Blore, it has clocked 1500 kms.First service is completed.

                                Now when i go to 6th gear and speed is within 75 to 90, i get a feel that the front portion is shaking a lot. Orion folks disagree with me, have escalated to the higher authorities. Karnataka chief mechanic came and told teh same thing. I rode a stock one and it didnt give that feel. Is it the knocking sound of the engine due to which i get the feel?

                                Is anyone facing the same problem?
