    It's not radial. Radial tyres have smaller and more inclined side walls (check the rear tyre). Or check the tyre specs in the manual.Name:  1545735100272~2.jpg

    Okay... In some places the tyre is marked radial, in others it says bias ply..
    I will request more knowledgeable members to comment.

    Yes you can definitely go with radials on the front. Most modern bikes come with radials in the front as standard equipment. Not sure why the Gixxer doesnt get Radials in the front from factory.

    Its not a printing mistake. Gixxer comes with Bias ply at the front and Radial at the rear.

    Zapper FX is the stock front tyre not FYM

    I don't any bike manufacturer will offer a radial and non radial tyre in the same bike.
    Check the tyres on the bike then. It's not written on the front tyre that it's radial

    Has anyone changed the seat foam? It's too hard and I am planning to change/add foam to make it softer. Can someone please help me?

    Sometimes the self start on my bike (sf fi) won't work (4 times so far) but it works after I roll the bike a little and stop with engine braking. Can anyone tell me what's wrong?
