    I will bring a comparo of both.

    In the short ride that I did:

    Ninja feels aggressive with its grunt.

    R3 has polished mannerisms (refinement)

        I am in Japan and missing riding my bike. Saw some Yamaha factory workers today in blue and black jackets with 'Revs your heart' written and felt good though! 😎

          Did you get a chance to ride bikes which are not available in India ? Or any of your dream bikes ?

            Unfortunately no. I don't have International licence. Even if I did, they need a separate licence for high capacity bikes

                Am seriously luking for Masseter & had been visiting Mrf dealer since 10 days, wrote to Mrf but still R3 spec tyres not avlbl in hyderabad. There is lot of disconnect bw the company & what it communicates to their dealers. Although Mrf making lot of noises on social media abt these new tyres but in reality lot of gaps when it comes to its availability.Mrf engineer called & gave me a date of its availability but when i visited the showroom aftrr 5 days frm that date, still no update on the status?

                  Am also looking for MRF massatter, but don't know how tyres realy perform.

                  Even in the reviews and motovlogs,they are telling its its good, nothing about, i didn't even see anyone doing some aggressive concerns on Massater at Kari.
                  (Sorry if its me who didn't see that)



                  MRF calls massatter a cornering specialist, but its not even a RADIAL TYRE?

                  Will the MRF C1 be a better choice than Massater?


                  what do think about this?

                  ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

                  Sorry not concern,
                  *cornering

                    the c1 doesn't come in the 140 size... only 150/60 size.
                    The masseter is probably a similar soft compound to the c1 but a non radial (? am not sure, but that shouldn't be a deal breaker!). If it's speed rating is good enough for the speeds the R3 can do, you can go for it in the stock 140 size.
                    The stock mrf on the r3 is a hard compound and so are tires like the ceat.. I would say stay away from them if you are looking for spirited riding/cornering.

                      Yes mrf c1 is 390 tyres.
                      It is 150/60.
                      Yes MRF masster is a bias-ply tyre.

                      Am not concerned about the tyre size, as 140/70 or 150/60 both are direct fit.

                      What I need is better overall grip especially at corners,
                      Its been said that Radial tyres are better for cornering.

                        If size is not a concern, go for Metzelers 150/60 the ones which comes stock on D390. This is the most sticky tyres you can get. Since it is soft compound the life will be only 12K kms. Pirelli RossoII is also a good option which is again 150/60.

                        For 140/70 best would be Michelin Pilot Street, I am using this and was good enough for cornering on ghats. Don't know how it will perform on track.

                            Abs is mandatory for 150+ cc bikes from 2018 in India.
                            So wait can be worth.

                              Expect abs in R3 by first half of 2018.
