Hi Sheel,

She was way up in front with the big boys, never felt that i was riding something less than half as powerful.
@ku69rd - Please watch this space for videos on the Akrapovic exhaust note with and w/o DB killer.

I was expecting this. Honestly one is getting more than he/she bargained for. A much better VFM than any Motorcycle on sale in India today. And a desirable one at that.

Would be waiting for the videos

@Plimsollmark: When you took the N650R to Lavasa, how was the handling around the ghats of Mutha? She obviously wouldn't be as sharp as the R15 or the N250R but was she as cumbersome as the Karizma and the P220? Would it be possible to take her to a weekend ride on the mountain twisties and come back satisfied or is she nervous when put to the task?
Thanks

@Narula123,

This bike is a sports tourer and i must say this does its duty spot on. The twisties is a lot of fun on the N250r but the 650r is not a lot differrent. She handles equally well if not better around the bends and twisties. But long extended rides on this bike is fun.

Narula123, the 650R is a pleasure on the twisties as well as the straight stretches. Of course there are a couple of extremely steep hairpins where one literally has to crawl across. But other than those - brilliant ! In fact got a decent bit of rain on the way back, the tyres held on rock solid, only thing I am disappointed with so far is the brakes !

Looks great with the smoked windshield. Is this taller than the stock windscreen?

Please also let us know if the frame sliders are no cut ones. For the benefit of other owners do share the cost of the aftermarket parts and where you sourced them from, if you dont mind.

Good going man! But you should have opted for the Akrap in Carbon Fiber finish, with the pipe ending around the pegs, the titanium isn't just looking the moolah you may have spent on it.

Hey Manson Bro,

The Titanium is the only finish the Akra is available for the 650. Dont have too much of a choice there

The bike looks *WOW* I don't think I have looked at a 650R so lustfully ever

The looks have completely transformed and is so desirable.

Hey, the bike looks fantastic. Could you enlighten us on how'd you manage to get the color matched for the rims.

And those frame sliders are the cut type. recognized the pucks from earlier research I was doing for 650 sliders.

Thanks a ton Sheel - This does mean that my efforts to transform my ride has paid.

@ Lionell - Thanks, The paint job is done by 7th gear customs in Mumbai, they've done a fantastic job. And the sliders are indeed the cut types.

The zero, just like mathematics is redundant, and depending on the RTO Clerk's mood, you may or may not have it written as 0650, or just 650-

You can write 650 on the plate.

All my number plates have specially requested numbers (in combinations that irritate the RTO to no end, wondering what is suspect about this number)- anyway, hence the knowledge.

A friend had organised a ride for safety couple of weekends back, it was an awesome gathering of like minded souls on their Superbikes, Harley's, Royal Enfields, Ninja 250's, CBR 250's, R15's, Pulsars etc.

A few pics from that ride.
