Should be factory done.. Cuz the dealers themselves get the spareparts like fairings n all painted from the factory and also with the sticker done (in case of blue colour).

It must be done by the dealer to make a quick buck. As far as I know, the bike comes only in blue and black.

Don't worry they wont sell the one outside india due to our stupid taxes.
R15 is expensive just because of the fact that engine, chasis, transmission is been imported from outside india.

Anyways, even the ZMA has a black visor which would be 0% visibility at night so no point..
Believe me,your concept of tuckin' in ain't right man.Hope Praful's post clarified you on that .

And yeah,i've been on an R15,so i do know what i'm talking about .

And i don't do top speed runs at night dear

On the Yellow R15 - I believe that this months bike mag had stated it to be done up by a dealer in Bangy.
