Good job ashrafaliek...!! By the way,why did you choose those pulsar-wala rear rubber?? Could have looked better with some other thread patterns by MRF ZAPPER. Sorry dude if i have a bad taste.hehe. And...is that some kind of sun-control film thats applied to your visor?? looks great.

That is one seriously hot looking bike; really really superbike looking. Kudos to Yamaha for taking Indian bike design to an entirely new level. How are the R15 sales numbers? Are they in line with Yamaha expectations or enough to be called a success?

The pix with the other bikes show how good it looks.

How about a comparison between these?

curse ? I think this is a Very nice depiction of how a good looking bike can be made much better with slight cosmetic changes. Better tyres and this would be 'perfect' !!

Good job dude !! I am sure people here would like to know more details about the changes done in detail.

You are either talking about the FI self check or the fuel pump.

@veelubai:
The picture with Pulsar 220 was great.
How about a comparison between these bikes in another thread ?

I dunno how to explain, but its sometin sorta like an electric humming from somewhere beneath the fuel tank. It comes once in a while, even hours after the bike is turned off. The R15 doesn't have a radiator fan rite?

the R15 comes fitted with a radiator fan , and every time u ride it for quite some time , the fan comes into the act , u can hear it clearly if u push the engine kill switch while the main switch still on , the radiator fan only comes into play when the engine is hot , so don't expect you can hear it every time u push the kill switch .
