Veelubai, Thanks. I believe, its worth the wait. I was told that the incessant rains in the north and the impending truckers strike are causing the delays. Its usually a 6-8 day transit for Bangalore bikes and the second shipment is yet to arrive.
Contrary to popular posts on the thin tyres, they give excellent grip and control. You better get those knee pads ready.

Congrats ms001 on your R15. Welcome to the club and we now probably need to start a thread on R15 ownership as this community is only going to get bigger and bigger.cheers:

Showboater or track animal, this bike is the one for you ( if you have the budget)

Otherwise, RTR!!

BAL can play the ignorance card then if confronted- saying 'we just meant that the oil is cooled'.
Hehe. Good point made. On a lighter note: How about Tata putting the word 'Turbo' on its trucks? Does it make Tata trucks have a gas turbine engine? Like the M1 tank . Shouldnt tata put turbo charged instead??
