Thanks Abhay Hope you get the new 15 soon.
I doubt its going to be soon, my salesman has guaranteed that he will give my the bike in the First Lot, but according to him the bike will arrive 2 months from now. Extremely disappointed but lets see.

Why not try other dealer Abhay?

I had called the biggest dealer and he too said 2-3 months. Will call someone else. Also the reason explained is that there are problems in registration.

Saw a new R15 pottering around town the other day. Must say the rear looks HOT and quite like a mini R6 (barring the footwear ofcourse). The bike looks much more proportionate now and the Red-White color scheme was also good.
Had this been the version launched all those years ago in the first instance itself, I would have surely had one parked in my garage by now.

Saw the R15 V2 at the showroom today. Red.

The first feeling on seeing the bike in flesh was elation and excitement. It looks like a true blue sports bike. This is the one anyone looking for a sporty bike in the sub 2L category should go for even though it is 100 cc less than the CBR.

Compared to this, on seeing the CBR 250 for the first time the overwhelming feeling was that of disappointment mainly because what stood out for me was the poor quality of soo many of the indian made parts in it.I dont know if they have improved the quality after the initial fiasco. The CBR is a comfortable commuter/Tourer with a 250cc engine.

BTW coincidentally saw a black CBR on the road today on the way to the yamaha showroom. Funny part was it was being pushed by the owner. I am guessing it was just a miscalculation on the amount of petrol in the tank by the former 100cc commuter owner who used to get 70-80 Km/L from his old bike . Wonder what will happen to the FI system if the tank goes dry?

So end result - will be canceling the CBR booking !

PS- NO offense to any of the CBR owners. This is just my personal opinion.
The CBR is one hell of a value for money proposition as of now, in the sub 2L range and was my No1 choice till the R15 V2 was unleashed.

+100

This comes from a guy who has both R15 and CBR250R :-)

I am still so happy with the build quality with R15 which is INDEED miles ahead of CBR250R

Dont! Esp if you ride a lot in city. Haven't driven v2.0, but R15 is a pain in the city with too many downshifts required to overtake or to manage ubiquitous speed-breakers. CBR is a breeze in the city. And is a decent one on the high way too. Unless you are too track oriented, choose CBR over R15.

Lucky you! Owning both is like having spikes for the 100m dash and cross trainers for the half hour jog daily morning lol.

The guy at the showroom who drove the display bike said that it is much more smoother at slower speed and required fewer downshifts.

Well this is going to be a runaround for me in my neighborhood and not for commutes and i intend to use it for occasional track days. Thanks for the advice though.

Try it before you buy it (I couldn't do that then! R15 had no test-rides)

Will probably lose one of them soon. Don't know which one though

Default Few video reviews available on the net now



Coming from Yamaha, it was expected that they will not compromise on the existing performance. Although marginal improvement, it's good that it is not worse than v1.0 in terms of performance and handling while delivering the design cues that was always wished for.
