IMHO the R15 was killed the very moment it was made. Making a 150cc bike with R1 like fairings having wheels that look like cycle tyres fitted on a traditional bike wasn't a good idea. The FZ16 looks awesome and can be called a poor man's Fazer though.
Aprilia is the only Co. which has successfully given the sport/superbike look to 50, 125 and 250cc bikes.

Man those puny Aprilias rock! Well proportioned and looks like a million bucks! But lets not just take the case of Aprilia, even the European R125 looks a lot better styled and more puposeful and as good as the Aprilias. Yamaha thinks that R125 styling is too radical for India

Had lots of Telugu guys studying in my college and this happened to be one of their favourite words - there were other words also, but not good for the forum.

You should pass on the other 'favourite' words to the bike manufacturers to enhance their list of names for soon to be launched bikes

Soon to be launched contraptions to be precise.

@Shankar: Man, does the R125 rock! looks like a full blown SBK....as if the R6 has been fitted with a 125. They should have launched it in India. It would have changed the traditional bike scene out here. Looks to be much more expensive though. Is it?

Isin't that a proper Gixxer? The 750 or 1000 RR? Looks too big (and pretty, no offense to 150cc riders) to be just 150cc! Straight6 please confirm!

OT
I saw a Busa today inside the Suzuki dealership on Double road, Bangalore. Needless to say, there was a huge crowd around the black busa. I think it is officially on sale in Bangalore now.

It says "Hope the Indian version looks like this".. so "this" apparently is not the exact bike here.

At 150 kgs and 13.x PS the only thing the Lanza would be killing would prolly be scootys. Heck even the Disco 135 would be faster at this rate, but can't be sure of anything without a proper ride on one.

The FXR150 and CBR150R would be proper R15 killers as mentioned by Mpower. Pure short-stroke madness those bikes....

You're forgetting the beautiful and very fast Cagiva Mito....;-)
