    No offence to the owner of the bike here. My personal opinion is that this mod sucks big time. Looks like a cheap local/ street bike! It will a big inconvenience to vehicles traveling behind this bike and also the pillion in a rainy day. Also where will the number plate be put??

      agree with u mate... i checked the R15 V2 bike, it looks way better then this one. if the guy rides this bike on a wet surface and splashes dirt on the person who is behind him then he ll piss off everyone around :P people who are thinking about modding the original bike then rethink once, because yamaha has already done it {i mean form V1 to V2}

        Agree with you mate, v2.0 from v1.0 is already a very aggressive and suited mod, cutting or removing the hugger is just not necessary in my opinion. Spoils the look!!!
        I would be pissed to the core if this bike is infront of me on a wet surface!!
        Lol...

            Guys...! That pic of the bike with no hugger and numberplate was taken from the site called POWER TO THE RIDER. The point is they had a track day of the bike. And some tracks have rules to follow, like no number plates, indicators and other stuffs...! Am pretty sure that was the case...

              The bike without the hugger, sari guard and footpegs looks like a dainty praying mantis!

                he he i thought of this after i commented about it. yup this was for race track. but ya if anyone wants to remove that tyre hugger while commuting in city then its a huge problem.

                    Booked the R15 v2.0

                    Hi Guys

                    I booked the R15 v2.0 yesterday. I paid the cash in full though the dealer mentioned to pay only 50k as advance. Paid 1,23,100.00. Now the dreadful waiting period starts. He said that it will take approximately 2 months time. But will consider moving me up the charts once the stocks arrive since I paid the amount in full. Saw the bike in flesh today (black and red) looks gorgeous though.

                    Will post further updates.

                      An incident!

                      I rode the CBR250r. No doubt, It's a wonderful bike. Loads of power.
                      My friend and me were doing a photoshoot of our 2 bikes(CBR and r15 v2). We had left the lights ON for some photos(I know, not the best idea). The lights were ON for a good 20 minutes or even more.
                      After that we tried to start the bikes. The r15 started no problems but the CBR didn't! It was acing weird! Its tacho needle would get stuck at 3k RPM. We had to do a push start.
                      i dunno how the R15 with 2 headlamps with a tiny battery could hold up so well.

                      NO offence anyone, I personally love the CBR. Amazing machine.

                        When it comes to performance & handling, I think you just cant compare R15 with Pulsar 220, except for initial pick-up R15 is any day better..

                          For tourers -> the V2 will have better momentum, BUT since the rear seat is now a spilt, i am not sure if the travel-bags will tie nicely.

                          For city riders -> no noticeable diff between V1 and V2. You can't cross 80 and both bikes have similar but solid handling.




                          only for people behind you Since the rear seat is a bit raised, i doubt if there'll be any feedback spillage on the back of your shirt. Keep the mud-guard to be sure!

                          I don't think the Top end speed of V2 would be anything less than V1 because, while interviewing the marketing head of Yamaha.., the bhp enhancement question was raised..and it was noted that to compensate bhp - the Top end speed is further tuned against the new features and body weight of the bike, I would agree with that as the R15 engine tuning potential is high with sportz kit.. so no doubt about it!

                            well bro, if you haven't read the owner's manual, please go through it ASAP. its the best thing and educates us about most of the important things about the bike... but since you asked, just make sure that you dont revv the engine above 5k rpm for prolonged period.. but dont keep riding in the same gear and the same speed for longer time as well... keep varying the gears and rpm. you can rev it to 6k rpm or 7k rpm once or twice for a very short time with no issues... but dont prolong it.. thats it...



                            it will take some time getting used to the riding posture and finding the right posture. you will experience wrist pain, back pain and neck pain to certain extent for may be two weeks... but dont worry, once you get used to it, you will never complain about it again.. try to exert more pressure on your feet and the thighs grabbing the tank... it'll reduce certain amount of weight on your wrist and hence less wrist pain..

                            and guys, dont worry about the humming sound.. its common in all d r15's including v1.. peace..

                            thanks so much for the advice.... noted and executed. only 300 kms before i can whack her open

                            btw the manual says...less than 5000rpm for the first 500kms and then 7500rpm till 1000km. asa i reached 500kms....i took her too 85...and man was it fun.

                            but still the pick up aint in the league of the p220, i know its like expecting too much wid the 70cc deficit, but still...a friend told me "hazar ke baad khulegi, tension na le" hopefully it does!!!

                              oil change after 500kms and then full blast. Switch to full synth.
                              But 99% of them have no patience. So its atleast recommended to do 500kms without load, with moderate acceleration and keeping revs below 5-6k.


                              hi guys
                              Today i got my Red R15 version 2.0 rom pearl yamaha. The gear shifting is butter smooth than v1 riding position is same as v1,the road grip is awesome,the horn is loud. the initial acceralation is improved compared to old one.Today i have done 40kmpl.tomorrow i am going to change engine oil.After 2000 km i am going to joelled my R15 v2 so eagerly waiting to complete 2000 km.tomorrow i will upload pictures.
