Watch the second pic carefully. You'll be able to see the LCD screen.

Did you notice the odd placement of the front number plate?? It looked like it was bolted onto the speedo console..I hope that people will discard this and go for stickering as soon as they get the bike

The Graphic scheme has an RTR-ish look(the Big stripe along the tank)

This is the same bike even iraghava caught testing, compare the tyres from the initial photo to the latest one, seems to have munched up many miles.

yes, "bhaiyya"s are lucky to lay their hands on bikes that everyone is talking about

Looking at those fatty tyres (Manoj's photo), I think the bike is more powerful than expected :-)

Bring it on Yamaha, I want 250 pluss cc please!

Yamaha FZ 150 motorcycle photo, launch and features of the Yamaha FZ 150 motorcycle in India
according to this the FZ150 has the same engine as the YZF-R15 but its Air cooled, and only 5 gears.
And they claim it will have 16-18BH. If this really does produce 18bhp then the R15 could be history and this thing costs 40k less than the r15

I doubt this since this engine in water cooled form produces 17PS.
so how can it produce 16-18PS in oil cooled form.
R15 was supposed to put in excess of 20PS before launch
