25k for painting a new bike to a different colour is waste of money.
I will get my car painted for that.

Yellow is really not looking good on the bike. It is looking kinda locally modified bike. The good decals can do the trick. eg. Black coloured flames.

and real waste of money 25k Damn

Both the Red & Yellow R15's are looking pretty good. As someone rightly said the Yellow needs a few decals here and there to cut the explosion of yellow.

But 25K is sheer stupidity....someone has been taken for a royal ride!

What tyre pressure are u guys runnin?? It says 33psi front and 29psi rear (or the other way) but that kinda feels too rough. The Yamaha guys here recommend 5psi less than that.. Any thoughts?

That Wine Red looks classy.. Any more good pix of that one?? It seems the whole side fairings is black..

WOW!!

Nice paint jobs. I hope they launch R15 in Yellow with Silver, Red with White and Black with Blue.

This would make the bike more desirable and also Youthful.

One more thing they must do to improve the bike that's improve the sound on the bike. Give it more huskiness this would 100% improve the desirability of the R15.

Well,whether it's R15 or R1,the methods used are the same .Anyway's it's your bike and your choice.But i can't digest it being used to the tucking in even on my humble Zma

Yellow with silver? Yellow with black will look superb instead of silver. Silver will look cheap on r15. cheers:

OT: edit your message and restrict the smileys for 2 else mods will hit you with the -ve marking.

Well dear, the techniques used are same whether you're on an R15 or an R1.
At the end of the day it's your bike and choice, but i personally can't digest having a black visor (0% visibility) on my bike.

The technique might be the same.. but the riding position is totally different. Crouching would surely help in top speeds runs, but there is no way u can crouch so much that i'll be seeing thru the visor on the R15.. And the visor ain't so high that u'll be seein thru it.. Ride/get on an R15 and u'll know what i mean.

Anyways, even the ZMA has a black visor which would be 0% visibility at night so no point..

Yup! Crouching is only for topspeed runs, but you gotta really tuck down on the R15!, if you ain't seeing through the visor you ain't tucking... or ur really fat! Well seriously, one needs to tuck till your helmet/chest is in full contact with the tank, almost like hugging the tank.

I have a Poster of an Yamaha with Silver and Yellow. where in belly pan is full Yellow with Yamaha Sticker in Hollow black and little streaks of Yellow near tail piece, which actually looks cool.

its a very Old Poster which i have since '98.

Yellow and Black looks good too.

ps. thanks for the warning.
