Back on topic, i'm more interested in the suspension, want to check if the front forks have been beefed up. Rear swingarm looks sweet, have set my eyes on them for my other bikes

Overdrive posted this video of the 'new' R15. Check it out guys!

Disappointed with the fact that the bike isn't really very different, but that doesn't change the fact that it's one of the most good looking bikes on the road today
And finally a rear tire you don't have to be ashamed of

Enjoy!

If we go by software versioning the bike should have been named 1.1. It's not just Yamaha, almost all the 2 wheeler companies (HMC is a champion here), at some time, projected the cosmetic changes as upgrades. I like the looks of the new bike better, though the hype that was built around it, that to for so long, was not at all justified.

They have promised a month delivery within the first lot. I am the 20th person who booked from them, booked. They will call up people as they have on their list once the bike arrives and who are ready with the money, the bikes will go to them.

13% interest and 70% loan.
This dealer told me yellow color is also available, which I highly doubt.

Frankly speaking I think these sales guys are not yet sure about whats going on.
Visited Alka Yamaha at Khoperkhairane , Navi Mumbai.
Things that I came across :

1.Tentitive on road price is Rs.119050.
2.Waiting period maximum 3 months ( reason for a longer waiting period - some of the engine parts are being imported from Japan and assembled here.
3.Minimum booking amount ( Rs.40000 ) - told him I know people who have booked it for Rs.5000 , and he told me that was for before.
4.Interest rates for loans 13% fixed.
5.TD bike might come in the next 10 days - was asked to call and confirm.

Lets wait for Team Yamaha to get enlightened : )

I think we can even get our Old R15's (1.0) to look like new R15(2.0) as the new one has same chassis even the front looks exactly same .... correct me if i am wrong !!

Version 2.0

Dont tell me now Yamaha after re-entering the market with FZ/R15 is now planning to blow it away.

What version. For a time being I thought Microsoft overtook Yamaha India.
Has it been the case then get ready to get latest updates and patches along with Version 2.0

I am keenly waiting to see what Yam can bring in 250cc segment, so that I can have a company to my RD, and here we have VERSION 2.0

If this is not the right time then when is it for Yam 250cc?

Power upgrade on the 150cc mill. AFAIR, the 150cc mill it already churning out what it can to the max.

There is a big difference in the swing arm on Version 2.

HMC should take this 1.1 type numbering system because they will be launching about 20 upgrades of a product in its 25 years life and hence will run out of numbers if they go on like 1,2,3...
Yamaha doesn't call its color upgrades() with a new name and hence it can manage the 1,2,3... nomenclature system.

On a serious note, the cosmetic upgrade was more than welcome and has given the new bike a more beefier look. Though an engine upgrade is more than wanting and should have come in this new avatar.

PS:There is news that an updated ECU is present which has improved the top end performance slightly but power output is likely to remain same. A higher CC engine would have helped.

Is yamaha seriously thinking this as a upgrade? May be some IT guy took up this project to realize the initial customer requirement wasnt this outcome, and will get fired, eventually some other new project manager will take it over and do a quick fix version 3.0 which may be close to our requirement.

Even John Abraham will say 'NO-Yamaha'...!!
