Thanks Abhishek, just worried about these showroom guys, as they gave a customers bike for a test drive, when I asked for one. Very strange for a bike which is readily available for delivery, they did not even have a bike separately for test drive?

I believe I should be very careful, I think its very important to be around the mechanic during the service routines (but that's some days away) for now need wait to for delivery

Question Re: R-One-Five v2.0 gets me back to two wheels (Yamaha R15)

I was told by the showroom guys that I can take delivery of my Bike today (if I want to), Registration would happen by next week and I would get my number by Wednesday and when enquire'd about the insurance documents - they said I can get a insurance document as well.

Can someone confirm

If it is advisable to use a new vehicle with temporary number?
If there is any issue in having a insurance paper without the actual bike registration number on it?

I was told I can get the number into the insurance document during the renewal next year

Using the bike with temporary number is not an issue for a week or two. Insurance, have not seen one without the number but I guess the chassis number and other details in the insurance paper should suffice. Not sure though.

Well yes, they did say that for 3-4 days it would not be a issue driving with temporary number considering I would have other required documents.

Yes even I have not seen a insurance document without vehicle number in it (they said engine # would be there, so should not be an issue)

I have decided to wait few more days for taking the delivery with all required documents properly.

Waiting is becoming hard now, after paying the money, seeing the bike...

Talking Re: R-One-Five v2.0 gets me back to two wheels (Yamaha R15)

I have actually taken delivery of my Bike today, Man I missed the feeling for so long (driving a bike); did some 32kms driving today, I felt very comfortable driving around, got some little pain on my left wrist (expected I guess)

Found some small scratch on right side fairing, promptly pointed it to the showroom guys, they did not have stocks to replace that right away, hence updated the Service manual to change that during the first service, with signature of the showroom owner in the service booklet.

Engine does not feel very smooth - may be I am not driving it the right way? or may be would feel better after first service?? for now keeping it at about 4.5k RPM, about 51km/h is what i did as speed, another 470kms to go before I can do above 5k RPM.

The new MT AXXIS Geo 3 helmet is very tight and I really like the fit; worth the 4k spent on that

btw, sorry for hijacking your thread.

Hearty Congratulations !! You will get used to the sitting position soon. Don't put the weight on the wrist and you should be fine. Elbows bent and hold the tank with your knees. There are lots of links available on this.

Please go ahead and post your experience with the bike. There is nothing of hijacking in here

I was definitely not bending my elbows, could be the reason for my wrist pain, will search for relevant links. Waiting for office to get over, so that I can drive again

Unhappy Re: R-One-Five v2.0 gets me back to two wheels (Yamaha R15)

I am hearing a "click" sound after the bike is stopped completely (read after removing the keys); sound stays for sometime, have not noted for how long.

Is this normal??

If it's continuous ticking sound for few minutes even after stopping the bike, nothing to worry, that's sound from various metal parts cooling down. Its common in cars and bikes.

Yes, its only after stopping the bike (everytime), good to know that everything is alright.

Yes, I think speed should not be an issue as long as you are within the (Owner’s manual) given RPM. I am doing about 68-70 under 5K RPM. I got another 70 odd kms to complete to move beyond 5k RPM.
