How stupid can anybody be?

It definitely looks like this bike will eat into the sales of cbz and karizma,Just my thought. However, it depends on its long term reliability and definitely many would wait and watch.

The fuel pump should be running at all times you have the engine running (whether the bikes in motion or not). When you turn "off" the ignition the fuel pump would have to turn off. When you turn the ignition "on" again (before starting the engine), it'd run the initializing and shut it self off until you start the engine.
Thats how its supposed to work on all fuel injected moto's i'd assume the same on this one as well. Nice bike btw

i reading in the BS Motoring magazine, they claim a top speed of 140kmph with a 60kg rider prone on it. Keep adding the weight on the rider and see the top whack going down

Not really they are very different segments Let the initial euphoria die & then we will know whats the real impact of R15 on other bikes especially the P220.

At what RPM does it do 100 KPMH? (in the 6th gear) Also, what is the max RPM that can be achieved?
