    If you wanna show off with the split seat etc., get it-I consider it a waste of money. If you upgrade to a bigger bike, yes, I encourage you.

    Hello I'm not going for the New R15 Version 2.0 !! Reason - No Gab rails for pillion riders !! And the rear seat is slightly increased !!

    Conclusion - I'm going to upgrade to a bigger bike .. Honda CBR 250 R
    I'm going to book that Red Bull Monster on Diwali !! The Wait time period in Chennai is ' 6 ' Months !! So , i would be bringing the Red Bull Monster to my home by April 14 th 2012 !! [ April 14 th - Tamil New Years Day ] My Bike No. Will be TN -09 xx - 3366 [ xx - The two digit alphabets !! How do i know what alphabet will i be getting by Next year April 2012 . I can't even guess , that's why ] My Baby R15 Version 1.0 Foot Plate Number is TN - 09 BJ - 3366

    Till that time , i will be Enjoying the Most with my Baby R15 Version 1.0

    I 100 % agree with your last point !! Well said . Ha ha xD

      I mentioned the CBR assuming you want a better bike in terms of performance. Since you're more inclined towards mileage, then CBR will give you 28-33 kpl in city and 35-39 on highways.

      It would be best if you stop worrying about RPMs and just feel and listen to your bike while driving. A lot of people keep looking at the tacho and forget their eyes should be on the road (me - 1 year ago).
      Though its nice to read you don't manhandle her much

      About the oil change. There are no genius approaches for a proper run-in since you don't track race. I'd suggest you keep things simple for yourself. I have used Yamalube SS from the start with no complaints.

      There are 2 factors at play for oil change. Your daily run and the grade of current oil. Assuming she's doing 25 km daily on mineral, change oil every 1000 km. If she's on SS, then every 2500 km. Change oil filter on every alternate oil change. If your daily run is more, then adjust with a good guess. I changed oil @ 300, 900, 2300,4000,6000. My daily run was 56 kms on SS.

      There's a cap on the right side of your engine to pur in engine oil. Unscrew it out. The oil dripping from it, put in on some tissue paper. If you see black dark oil, its definitely time to change it. If the color is still slightly greenish and has only some black particles in there, you can wait.

      Drive safe!
      My expectations of Honda CBR 250 R to deliver me a minimum 30 km/liter and Maximum 35 km/liter !! As you all say , if i maintain 6k Rpm or below & If the monster delivers me Minimum 30 km/liter means I will be very happy with that Monster !! So no more confusions for me !! All things solved

      Once Again Thank you very much for providing me some tips/information !!

        Once I received the bike I went and performed pooja at Sampath Vinayagar temple. I took her for a ride and man she was awesome. So many people were asking what is the price etc.

        I was telling myself to control the speed and not to rev her beyond 4k rpm. Once the run in is completed I will go a bit higher up the rev range.

        Anyways I will keep you guys posted and sure will upload the pics.

        Until then happy riding guys

I just expected Minimum 30 km/liter mileage , And i dint expect more than 35 km/liter mileage from that Monster !! Anyways Leave it !!

          Hey Arrivealone,

          Sorry If I sounded harsh and hurt you. You will not be dissappointed with the upgrade. But keep in mind that you will loose out a bit on the handling part (of all the bikes I've ridden, There is no other bike like the R15 when it comes to handling).
          One suggestion, if you are getting the CBR250, wait for the Repsol version, gonna be out/released soon
          Check with a nearby ASC regarding the same.

            No Problem dude . So you mean i will loose out a bit on handling part !! My doubt is as soon i start driving the bike , i will loose out a bit on the handling part ? ? Or , if we Do 100 km/hr speed or more , on that time i will loose out a bit on the handling part ?

            2 Question.
            If i go for this monster Whether i go for Non ABS version or with C-ABS version ?.
            3. CBR 250 R Build quality is Good ?
            4. No vibes throughout the main parts of the bike ? I mean handlebar , Fairings , Mirrors etc .
            5. Suspension is good for Commuting in city traffic/Broken roads Compared to R15 ?
            6. I hope I'm Clueless What do you mean by ASC ?

            Hmm .. I've seen Only 1 Honda CBR 250 R in chennai .. lol !!

            Once again thank you for Cautioning me & providing some valuable information

              The handling will mainly affected in corners due to the bigger size and larger wheelbase of CBR. It will remain same in a straight line.

              2 Question.
              If i go for this monster Whether i go for Non ABS version or with C-ABS version ?.

              Go for the ABS version.

              3. CBR 250 R Build quality is Good ?

              Yes the quality is good. Although the finish is not perfect but still its good.

              4. No vibes throughout the main parts of the bike ? I mean handlebar , Fairings , Mirrors etc .

              No vibes.

              5. Suspension is good for Commuting in city traffic/Broken roads Compared to R15 ?

              Good.

              6. I hope I'm Clueless What do you mean by ASC ?

                      Could you guys pls advice me on how to ride the bike as its in the run in period and i cannot ride above 5k rpm (Manual Suggests).

                      • Divine motors in Mira Road quoted a price of 1,35,000 and promised delivery within a week.
                        Yamaha dealer is quoting 1,22,000 and 3 months waiting period.

                        Comment


                        • Got my bike

                          OK so got my hot bike (blue color) today.. Checked all parts, brakes, electrical parts, scratches everything was OK!
                          Odometer was showing 2km and trip meter was showing 1.2km..
                          after lot of no-no dealer provided me Teflon coating for free..

                          Hmm very pleasing to drive.. Drove for 60 km on a single day.. Man its so nice to drive and the attention you get is too good..

                          so some points regarding bike..
                          • Its more drivable than the previous one in standing traffic and in city commute.
                          • Built quality is as you would expect from Yamaha. A++
                          • Looks are killing.. seriously means I was staring it for almost an hour..
                          • Hmm didn't took above [email protected] rpm so can't judge power delivery.
                          • Horn is very loud and gets respect.
                          • Rear seat is like you are sitting in sky high since we don't have such experience before but its good just missing grab-rails to hold while brake or jerk.. (although good if you take your girl out)
                          • Space inside pillion-seat is enough to store bike papers, dust cloth, tool-box and First-aid kit.
                          • Rear Tyre helps you to maintain control and drive smoothly through small potholes, gravels and off-road area.
                          • I didn't find any improvement in the headlights though..!
                          • Brakes are too good.. Better than before.. It really works like ABS if you know how to use front and rear brake simultaneously in right ratio.
                          • Seating position is almost the same but due to new weight distribution and forward-biased design it do feels different and more sportier.

                          This is what I do experienced on today's ride.
                          I'll share more and will upload pics on Sunday after a clean wash..

                          Something I want to ask to experts and previous owners..
                          • When I change gears they are a little stiff in nature and then when I accelerate I feel vibes for fraction of seconds (I feel the pistons moving inside engine). After that it vanishes again until I change gear again. What is going on?
                          • Every time I switch on ignition a humming type vibration and sound comes somewhere near fuel tank? Is it radiator fan? and why it happens?
                          • How to check oil and coolant levels? I read somewhere to change oil after 1st day driving.. Should I change it?
                          • How to reset trip meter to zero?


                          Thanks in advance..

                            1) The gears will open up over time, lots of oil changes within the first 2-3 k km's will help in the long and also short term, don't forget to change the filter each time!
                            2) it's your fuel pump, no prob!
                            3&4) It's in the manual
                            Beware of Bread, don't say I didn't warn you!
                            More than 98 percent of convicted criminals are bread eaters !
                            Statistics show that more than 75 % of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread !
                            Bread is known to be extremely addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water, actually begged for bread after just two days !
                            Bread has been proven to kill. Scientists have now uncovered alarming evidence that 100% of the people who eat bread will eventually die !
