That is a stunner!!

How is the seating position and ride for tall people? I am 6'2" tall.

Good you went for black instead of Blue, the sude cladding is not painted and can be saved from scratches.

Thanks PatienceWins, I'm 182 cms and the bike is just fine so it should be ok for you as well. You may have to adjust your seating position to ensure proper reach to handle bar and gear/brake. Which means you will have less of a crouching position. Should be just fine. I sincerely suggest that you test drive one. With regards the color, my approach is exactly what you mentioned. The faring is unpainted hance less chances of scratches and easier maintenance. Almost like the side protector strips on car doors.

Thanks Steeroid. I guess I must be the first one to announce it on Team-BHP atleast. I fully agree with you regards the safety gear (knee pads, etc.,) and I presume you could get them to be sporty looking too. the last time I rode a bike was during the RX100 days and so am a bit rustic. A fall would be a very high price to pay (and I'm not reffing to the bike here) so more the protection the better.

Nice!! Tell me are those twin beams separate for high and low beams? And how is the low end throttle response of the bike off idle?

The brakes on this bike are by Nissin

Saw the bike today at the Yamaha showroom and was blown away by the looks. I am in serious doubt now whether to buy a car or buy this and wait for a year to buy a car.

Hi ppl, got my bike yesterday evening[1700hrs].First bike in my town.Rode 125kms till now.The bike is awseome to say the least.

R 15 owners - just wanted to know wether its safe to take the bike to 100km/hr .The showroom ppl and techinicians say that the bike doesnt require any running in.Anyways to play things safe Iam not revving the bike too much even though I managed to do 100,101 3 or 4times in 6th gear.
