2 more cons which I felt were-

* The headlight in dip mode is horrible.

BTW can someone explain the difference between switching of the engine via the engine kill button and by turning the key off.Is there any benefit using the engine kill switch other than that you can use the electronics[ex.park light,horn].

You need to install HID's in the headlights.

The kill switch activates the FI self check(atleast on SBK's). Its also convenient on signals where you know you will be waiting for sometime. You can switch off the engine but the lights will remain on.

Is there any temperature gauge ?

one other thing i want to ask you is there any fan placed behind the radiator so that engine is cooled if there is jam on streets in cities?
ya thats true only 1 light works in low beam,and both in high
there's no temperature gauge, only high temperature warning light
there is a cooling fan also.

Is it that both the headlamps are having dual filament bulbs.
What I am asking is : Does both the headlamp bulbs have filaments for low beam and high beam ?

Or is it that one is specially for high beam and the other is specially for low beam ?


Are the headlights directly connected to the batter ?

not very sure but looks likely that both have only single filaments and yes they are directly connected to the battery

Saw this news on another automotive forum.... A charred R15. Apparently the guy just took his delivery and filled petrol
Very ghastly and raises questions on Quality checks

congrats to the guys who have recently bought the R15. How does this match up against the 220 pulsar? They are in the same price bracket. Been a driver (not profession) all my life. Am looking at getting initiated into the 2-wheeled kind. Kinda liked both the 220 & R15 for looks. Any advise? Pro / Cons of both the bikes.

Thanx.

The bike caught fire on its own accord..I'm still gathering the news. as I said before, the guy Bought his bike and filled up the tank. After sometime, his bike started to smoke and caught fire. That's all I know as of now.

The bike was bought from Ambal Motors chennai
