    Thank you.
    And yes! I'm 5"7' too and it sometimes feels like getting on a horse!
    And yes, I'll surely upload the pics, but i'll have to downscale the pics, the current ones are 4mb each.

    Hi Abhi,

    Congratulations. Ride safe. How is the riding posture? I found it little aggressive than the older version. Have you tried riding for longer duration like 1 hr or so? Any strain on shoulders or back?

    Thank you.
    Well, the riding posture is certainly very aggressive, pretty similar to the v1 I would say. But the thing is the seat is now much wider and longer(?). It provides very good under thigh support.
    I haven't sat on the bike for longer than 30mins at a stretch and I didn't feel any pain in shoulders. Certainly no back pain. There was some pain in the wrists though.

    And, My R15 is Black. Its magnificent.

    Congrats mate. r15 2.0 is indeed a wonderful piece of art! I loved the look of the bike especially the Red/white one, yet to ride it and looking forward to it. I loved the riding posture, dint find any difference compared to the 1.0(What ever you might wanna call it).
    I however dint like the feel of sitting as a pillion rider, its just not comfortable I feel. Will be a great inconvenience for a lady passenger if not your GF or Wife.
    Also the edges of the faring ends close to the foot rest(Well its not very close though) and I actually hit it once while testing out the bike. This is my only complaint interms of the design( plus rear seat), otherwise its an art I must say. This coming from a CBR250r owner

    ^^ I second your question!
    Need to know this urgently!
    The comfort for long rides is a question?

    Default ALICE in praveen land.

    Well as wierd as it may sound, but yes my bike has a name, on the lines of Casey Stoners Ducati. I got the black "smokin hot" beauty today at 10 am.

    90 kms in a single day and well all the apprehensions about back pain and shoulder pain were thrown out the window. yes wrist pain is persistent. may be it will take some time getting used to it

    the bike revs with the enthusiasm of a teenager down wid 13 redbulls, its a proper hoot to ride. The sad part is that i havent crossed the 5000rpm mark in any gear and the 4000rpm mark on the 6th. Its so bloody difficult to keep down the speed below 60kmph. ( please do suggest me on the RUN IN period and what precautions to be taken ). the exhaust note has this shrill note wid a classy thump to it. the engine does get heated superquick. i noticed the bike venting hot air out the vents when it was stationery. i guess its normal as i already read this somewhere. the gear shift is a bit notchy, the gear changes with a "clink" but 4th, 5th and 6th dont make such sound, may be its me and i am shifting in wrong. getting used to the 6 speed tryanny is bit wierd, shifting down 3 gears when we brake is unsual for someone who has till date ridden a bike with only 4 gears.

    The seating position is a perfect even for a tall guy like me. the recess on the tank accomadated by knees perfectly. the seating is superb. its large and a variety of "bums" can rest there in peace . the rear seat is too high, but once up der the feeling is just superb. a mini escalator should be given free with the bike , just in case ur gurlfrds hover around the 5ft 2 inch mark.

    Its a head-turner, people look at it with awe!!!! it just feels so superb, when people come up and inquire about the bike.

    Detailed report coming up soon.

    Did you try with PSN Yamaha at mamangalam?AFAIK the shinrai Yamaha is the worst Yamaha service centre in kochi,our cochin fellow xbhpians had experienced it.
