Hi RuffRyder...I booked my FZ16 at Bangalore Wheels (Dr. Rajkumar Road in Rajajinagar) and they have the Flaming Orange bike on display. Looks gorgeous in both black and orange. I have been promised the bike in the first lot in the 2nd week of October when they expect to start deliveries

Black is zimply unbeatable, though i like red too. On top of that for just 1800 bucks you can have a different looking bike everyday. Thats awesome....

Red is my favourite colour and guess the bike would look awesome in Red.

I've never had the opportunity to see it in the flesh, but my desktop has a picture of the FZ in red

Thumbs up

I haven't seen it in flesh, only in the paper or the net. I think ORION MOTORS in Koramangala has a red one on display.

CHEERS,

Just like in Pacer, Blr Wheels too didnt have the keys...but they have promised a TD in the next week. I believe unlike the R15, the FZ would have a test drive bike. Feedback being taken and acted upon I suppose. :-)

I couldnt hear the engine note, but the guy at Pacer told me that it is very much like other 150s "very smooth" he said. grrr.
I would have loved to hear him say the growl is there.
