    i am 183 cms tall. the bike does look a lil tiny..not as much as the v1.0 but yes obv...superbikes (or in dis case 150cc superbikes) were never meant for tall folks.

    The bike is extremely relaxed in the 6th gear. I could do 82kmph at 5k RPM.
    At 80, the engine felt like I was doing 50 and the composure was that of 40kmph!

    Completed 100 kms in the bike today.

    I rode the bike today in heavy traffic(Mysore Dasara!) and the radiator fan switched on.
    The first 2 gears are rather clunky and sometimes, I engage neutral while trying to engage 2nd gear. It is very annoying when that happens.

    Riding this bike is truly a religious experience. The attention it grabs is also awesome.

    I got a call from Yamaha, Regarding my December 2010 enquiry about the new R15 They asked me to visit and yes I did, At-least to check the bike And hoping for a test drive. So I reach there and the agent who called me got a sober face ... Yes he noticed my ride ... Still I got a chance to check the bike, I would say! Definitely would have bought that one if it had come a little earlier

    Looks bulky! Far far better than the previous version, Pictures wouldn't satisfy the feel Have a peek by yourself, Will be satisfied much

    Didn't check for much other details! Rear seat was a little mess up! And no grab rails even! Okay with your lady friends, they can hold ya tight! Doesn't work so well with the guy friends lol! Lovely 130mm rear tier btw, MRF again! Not sure whether its a soft compound. And tier hugger was pathetic Hopes its removable!

    The older one, v1.0 used to do 80kph at 5.5k rpm, and the new one as Abhichoco stated, does 82kph at 5k rpm...so can we conclude from these results that a better top end can be expected from this machine, the latter one...?

    Man pointed out the the problem to the tee. the gear shifting in the first 3 gears is a hastle and downshifting from 6th to 3rd goes like "clink-clink-clink". and the radiator fan switches on...the handle bar settles into a hum..but it feels sci-fi. theres a lil humming sound that comes asa the bike starts, i dont know if its only limited to my bike but yes..it does.

    i have completed around 240kms in 2 days and boy do my shoulders and wrist cry out for mercy.. i dont know if its just me getting used to the riding position or is what a racing bike offers???

    experienced guys out there please let us "the newbies" know the perfect sitting position, the exercise to strech out, the run-in period tips
