In answer to the topic of this thread, its Yamaha's responsibility to attract the masses - after now having earned the monicker in India of a bygone company

Thanks satyamenon! i'll post some more pics shortly.

can anybody tell me what the orange color indicator at the top right corner of the rpm meter in rxz indicates. when i bought my bike it use to glow only when the bike is in neutral.but now a days it starts blinking when the bike is a bit slow in 2nd gear. does it mean insufficient engine oil.please reply.

when i first visited this site as a guest i was very much attracted becoz here we can see there is a load of discussion any various automobiles. which is also the reason for my registration to this site. initially i use to roam each n every thread and read those interesting posts by u all. as a yamaha lover the most interesting thread was the yamaha thread. i love to see those experience of the yamaha owners. one of them is mail4ajo. he is a very experienced yamaha rider. till today i visit that thread and read those old posts.thats is why i have started this thread. where did those yamaha lover gone. those interesting stories of yamaha riders. m missing them. comeon start posting.

What made you think that Yamaha Lovers are gone? They are always there lurking around, hoping that Yamaha India will wake up some day and start introducing performance bikes rather than those puny (I've have to exercise great restraint in calling them just puny) CRUX-A/B/C/D...variations. I would say that Yamaha India is worse than Fiat India. Fiat is at least trying hard to get back in the market.

Default I dont think!

i dont think yamaha will come again with that boom. may be god was in a good mood when the yamaha engineers were designing the rx series engine.
even one of my friend was interested to buy a yamaha g5, you won't believe,the guy in the workshop suggested not to buy yamaha 4 stroke engine bikes. he suggested to buy pulsar.
those who have already owned the yamaha rx series bike are blessed by the god himself. so i'll suggest every one not to sale their yamaha bike if its a rx series.
