    Is it just me, or does anyone here think that the normal average indicators are an eye sore on both ends. they look really bad surrounding the slick and upbeat led taillights and projectors. I mean KTM and Bajaj have been providing cool looking and super bright LED indicators for a few years now, and this being a premium street bike would look even better with sleek and stylish LED units instead of conventional indicators.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    So FZ-S should become pointless for MT15? Maybe maybe not.
    Still I feel MT 250 should have come.. There's R15 in 150cc segment and R3 in above 300cc.. With Fz25 being sub par comparatively, it feels like there's a vacuum in 250cc category and there's no clear winner..
    People upgrading from typical 150/125cc and wanting to spend almost 2 lakh, have no other good choice except to go for re 350, or else jump on directly to 400cc for dominar.

    Above r15 below r3 there will be huge gap it is easily filled with international r25 or mt25 it will be a good competitor to cbr250r or cb300r

    Those Meaty golden USD front fork is the main attraction of MT15. Why Yamaha is stripping them?? Yamaha, Please keep those... Even if it meant to increase price by 10k. I mean Endurance is producing those WP's for KTM for 15k. It won't be an impossible task to assemble them locally.

    Much like the 2019 R3. Though we'd assert that the effect is more pronounced on the R3...

    Yes sir, they really are an eye sore. And it is indeed more pronounced on the R3.
    Owners can always switch to LED ones, but factory fit and finish is always welcome (specially on well built bikes like Yams).

    And its not like these bikes are build to a budget. They are premium at least in India, both in terms of cost and power, so I don't think 4 LED indicators would hike the cost that much.

    apologies for going OT but I find the same thing in Honda with Lack of kill switch on anything lower than a CBR250 and we would like to see a bit more premium switch gear on a 150 (they are exact same as on a dream yuga or shine). I mean, for God's sake Honda, an engine kill switch is not that expensive specially when Bajaj has been providing back lit ones for more than a decade now.

    Well, beggars can't be choosers. We will have to take what they give us.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    But I think we are consumers.

    giving something for free to beggars cannot be compared with buying something from a seller.

    Without us, the customers/buyers there is no company/manufacturer.

    Just because their engines are good doesn’t mean they will treat Indian market as cheap one.

    Once I mailed Honda and Yamaha about some questions regarding their respective products and only Yamaha responded back to my mail atleast.

    Even after 3 years, I didn’t get any response from Honda.

    So what if we avoid their products (which won’t happen anytime) altogether?

    Won’t they change their attitude in India?

    It’s not like we have to depend on them for their products.

    It can be any manufacturer.

    We have good number of products today.

    Sorry, but it’s just my personal opinion.
