Nope R15 has thin ones because of weight issues. So they cant be the same ones on the FZ16

the thickest ones I have seen were on bullies cheers:

Are you sure about the Bulet forks? I'm not sure about it being thicker than P220's. Visually it doesn't look so. I have a Bullet but i haven't measured the forks.

Who tested to get these figures? If they could arrive at these figures, 0-60kmph could have been tested as well right? Must be approximations.

Kwacker Ninja 250 eh? Can we term them as Supersport wannabies or the more apt Indian Supersports as Yamaha calls them?

In the link provided by Sankar, there's an image showing the expected colors, though a PS job, gives fairly good impression of what to expect.

I doubt the fuel Figure......

The bike looks awesome. specially the tank and the tires. They suit the image of the bike. and am sure the quality as usual will be of the highest standards.

Waiting for the launch eagerly.

All those figures given by Sankar are not true as the website has guessed everything looking at the R15. The FZ-16 will have a 5 speed gearbox not a 6 speed one,

Looks fantastic, Yamaha has bagged the best looks for any Indian bike so far . I too am tempted but having bought a Uni just a year back will see how it fares in the TD. So is there any info on the price and delivery in Bangy?

Mean looks. Love it!

But there are only 3 color options. I still dont understand the fetish for Orange. The RTR 160 and now the FZ16.

Anyways... exciting times ahead!!
