    Now,I am the latest one to get into the debate of whether buying Pulsar 220F or R15v2.0 ...which to go for? The extra Rs. 20k for R15 is quite a blow for me.

    I do agree that best way to check mileage is to reset trip meter as soon as you see F on your display and then fill the tank with X liter and note the reading when it hit reserve again and do the calculation.

    As per this calculation my V2 (Run in) is giving mileage of 50 at highway and around 42-44 (combined highway and city). I am still keeping it below 5000 RPM and using all 6 gears changing between 4100 -4500 RPM
    Thanks for the info.

    My ride consists of zero highway driving and I hate people sitting on my bike,in my absence. So an R15 would draw hell of a lot of attention.Pillion riding will be very inconvenient,specially for my mom and gf? Firstly,I want something having very good quality which I can keep easily for 5 years,without getting rusted parts. Love Yammies for the monoshocks and wide tyres. Bajaj bikes get rusted very easily,although I take extreme care of my bike. How are the charges for servicing and parts of R15 and FZ? Any rumours about Yamaha updating the FZ?
    I want stunning looks,about 45-50 mileage,fat rubber,dual horns and long lasting parts.

    Well to gain some you gotta lose some...For R15 it will be a straight trade off between pillion comfort and "45-50 mileage,fat rubber,dual horns and long lasting parts".

    Its not uncomfortable for gfs as per the feedback I get from my female pillions but yes for moms and aunties total no..I had to drop my mom somewhere in a cab even when I had my keys with me and bike right in front of my doorstep..But for your mileage and other requirements - R15 fits into the bill exactly...(40-42 mileage if we rev high but when we constantly drive below 5k rpm it is definitely more than 45 - exactly my bike's mileage figures)

    R15 is an attention seeker, only option left with me is to keep it covered always whenever unattended...Though initially I used to feel awkward in covering it at theatres and below my office but now am used to it specially considering the fact that it helps in keeping it safe comparatively.

    V2 is good for city driving also and I love driving it both in city as well as in highways..But its true potential will be wasted if you dont take her out on highways..If you ain't a tourer now then this bike will surely make you one and city driving will be just a formality for you to escape to the highway-so addictive it is!!

    Servicing and parts of R15 are just a BIT on the costlier side but then if you buy a bike worth 1.24L then its parts are also gotta be worth that...No idea whether any update of FZ is due but servicing and parts are not costly for FZ and FZ is also definitely an amazing bike...Except very low mileage...

    Do consider your options well..take a test drive and then decide.

    Sushanth, this is not a marketing thread of CBR so refrain from posting here, this is a thread for R15 owners and discussion related to their concerns.

    Default Back to biking

    Not much to write as the bike has proven itself anyway. Just some pics for interested buyers. Just a quick word before I sign off, I bought it from Perfect Riders in Bangalore and the buying experience was pretty good. That said, this is worth every penny although reconsider if you are never planning to ride it alone. The fun begins there ! The liaison of the bike and the rider is what this bike is all about.

    Both are good. Looks are a matter of individual choice. On paper at least, the CBR will make about 1 pony more with 1,000 rpm higher rev ceiling. So you can wait for 4 to 6 months to get your hands on a CBR or 2 to 4 weeks for a R15, your call ....

    And CBR150R makes ~2.5 NM of torque less and the peak torque also comes at higher revs. Just to highlight that performance difference between these two bikes would be marginal. You ll be choosing what your heart likes and you won't be wrong with either(assuming decent quality standards from Honda).
