Thats a good move. I can't comprehend booking a bike without looking at the version that will be made available.Anyways,each person has a different outlook. I'd love to see the bike in its true form,and then make a move.
18.5bhp? quite healthy,I'd say.

Spotted a R15 last saturday in Jayanagar 9th block, Bangalore. There were 10 in all, 5 black and 5 blue ones. All UP registered. As far as the specs go, my understaning is they are 150 cc with 22 BHP, 6 gears and mono shocks with front disc brakes only.

Here is a pic of the same, and will probably upload the video in some time.

The rear tyre, it seems pretty puny to me.
Will have to wait for the Video or the bike in real.

From the pic you have posted it looks like the Rear also has Disc Brake! where did you get these specs from?

Even after straining and looking I could not see any part of the disc brake.

IMO - Looks like this bike is gonna cost atleast 90k on road.

There is a promo video doing the rounds on the net. The video confirms that the bike has dual disc brakes. No mention of the bhp. Maybe they dont want others to come out with a higher capacity bike before their launch. Looks good.

I think times have changed and the market is ready for an expensive bike as this. Lets hope so.

Quite true,Ajo. 10 years ago,it was a totally different story.
Is there a formal date quoted,as to when the bike will be available in the showrooms?
