The aftermarket support is an exemplary step taken by Yamaha India, I hope the unavailability issues get ironed out soon enough.

Right said! That would do wonders to the bike! At this point, broader tires would surely boost the look of the bike.(Just asked the same question to a fellow BHPian,who just got himself an R-15).

Could our PhotoShop experts play around with a pic of the R15, and use a broader tire on it?

judging from what i've heard, the R15 handles and grips well enough. i'm sure even with a 200cc bore, a 140 rear and longer swingarm will be overkill. and in fact the bigger (heavier) rear will just end up eating up some of those horses you added with the engine mods. as it is the little motor isn't going to give you a huge deal more with a bigger bore as compared to say the gains from a 2 stroke modded engine. why would you want to kill those gains then?

i mean i'm guessing that when you talk of a bigger bore, it's performance you are after and not bling bling right?
