today i realized another fact when one is driving MT01 ... The traffic gives way

1. They feel scared or strange when they hear the sudden loud thump coming from no where suddenly.

2. The RAW & MEAN look of bike make them feel some ruthless brut is approaching so better move out rather then getting dent somewhere

I saw when i was driving the sound travels long distance cox i saw people driving at-least 300-400 meters turing around to see where the loud sound is coming from. Perhaps on Highway it might be longer but in city driving the loud sound is easily heard from a distance. To experience it myself i asked one of my friend to drive the bike & felt the loud sound coming from oblivion into picture. YEAH it does feels good to ride a mean machine !!!

Thx Yamaha !

My Experience

When I booked the bike it took about 3 days for the delievery. The days were real long as I was very anxious & bit scared for the Delievery day. I had taken a test ride thru someone & found out that the beast doesnít only look giant but is also about 265kg with fuel in weight. It needed bit of carefull handling when moving in our out of your garage.

Well the day came & I was at the showroom to oversee the PDI. It was over by mid day & I was ready to fire the engine ! It was a mosterous roar & my 1700cc beast was alive & all set to conquer the road with its loud thump. Outside the showroom there was a crowd waiting to kind of cheer off the delievery. They were all youngsters living near by & few guests who had visited the showroom for their bikes etc. I was asked to pull the bike outside & have fun !

I was bit scared that I might loose control & the bike might fall under me. Moreover I didnít want to scratch my bike the first day ! Well the bike came out smoothly I did the final formalities & rode the beast with a proud smile on my face Ö Afterall I had become owner of one of the most powerfull bikes in town. Most of guys love to go for R1s or busas but MT01 is a real male in this Big Bad Biking world !

Well the first thing I noticed was everyone was noticing my bike at every traffic signal or crossing. Wherever I had to slow down or stop I had a same set of question from the curious bikers Ė Whats this bike,must be imported how much RsÖ. I evaded replying any one of them as portraying them that I couldnít hear anything cox of loud engine sounds. I also noticed that the first 3 gears changed with a customery Clunk sound giving it a further enhansed mean sound. The rumble of the engine & silencers is un explainable ! It has to be experienced, as I have never felt such a Hugh torque & powerpacked pickup ever. I had seen a lot of V-Rod videos on U Tube & was very keen to buy one but since Harleys are not in India officially to my knowledge so I found its close looker a YAMAHA MT 01 ! Man this machine means a hell lot.

I was more contious to reach back home safely & have my family do the Pooja ! I reached safely & did the pooja & customary Swastik on The YAMAHA MT01 !

The first night went by with lots of compliments friom neighbourers. Then came biking das ! I took bike on near by high way & rode the bike & found that after a gap of 7 years non BIKING days I was able to handle the bike smoothly & was able to maneuver the machine very easily on speed between the traffic. The only problem I found was when i had to U turn Ö I discovered the trouble on U turning when I saw the bike slipping under me & liying on road on the side. I was shocled to see my new Machine on road. Thankfull The bike received NIL scratches. I understood that with my caliber I have to turn the bike just like a car hughe car front back curve front back curve etc. There by having full control on the bike, yes it takes more time but bike & me reamin safe.

Then came the speedy rides on highways, YES with full safety gadgets & safe control over the bike so no advices recommended on it ! I could wearing full face mask Sparx Helmet touch 135Kmph ! Thereafter I thought it might not be comfy for me & the bike as the airflow was tremendous. The pickup seemed like 0-60 in about 4secs & 0-100 was like 6secs. I might be wrong as its miy idea but very colse idea.

I now after so many days of ownership 700+ km of ride feel that I am very comfortable on the 1700cc Mill. I enjoy a ride of atleast half an hour if I donít have any work to go outside otherwise I enjoy the ride along with work on travel. I started with a mileage of about 12Km/L but have after 3 or 4 tank fulls have achieved about 15Km/L all on standard unleaded fuel !

I feel its got a very comfortable seat but the handle is a but far flug for my built at 5í7Ē I feel it would been nice if the handle could have been at-least 2-3inches closer !

I have noticed that when I rumble thru the traffic even the guy driving S class pops out to checkout my Bike to explore whats causing so powerfull rumble ! I dont have to honk as mostly the traffic give way as they are keen to have a look at the bike when I drive past them & more over thru their rear viewers they must be witnessing a very Rude & mean looking machine rumbling towards them. Bikers have chased their *** behind MT01 trying to match my pickup or speed & feel elated when they overtake it. But I have learnt that if I have to ride such a powerfull machine I have to respect its power too so I donít ever & ever I mean to pick up a chase or race with any vehicle. I feel I will earn a sence of respect from the onlookers when i cooly let one to over take me. later I just twist my wrist by about 15degrees on accelerator & I see the traffic vanishing behind me courtesy Mt01 huge tourque & pickup. Yes, at petrol fulling startions & other places around traffic signals etc people are often seen murmuring hey this bike looks so large & huge but the speedo shows max speed jus 70 ! Yes this is confusing as they donít realise that its just a tacho meter. Many have asked whats the max speed (I myself have not known beyond 135kmph) I feel any average Indian biker is more concerned about whats the max speed ! may be thatís the reason super bikes are not allowed any test rides by respectives resellers. One has to book buy & then test ride it at their own cost ! ☺

I have summed up most of it & will surely post more if required & will love to answer all your questions but not the ones like price/Where I live/When I bought etc.

Hope I have been able to write something worthwhile meaning quite some lot !

Cheers !

Apparently, on our recent most ride on Highway near our part of town, with High Beam lights ON (Super Bikes has lights ON Always dunno why ? probably to let other know of the thunder coming their way) we were Four riding parallel to one other at about 80-120kmph range were spotted by some local cops & were asked to stop. Were loaded with a barrage of questions. Where Why How How much for such bike, Does these bikes are sold in india etc etc. Man despite showing them paper etc etc we had give most of them free rides on pillion for about 3km round & then they let us off our way. But during those 3kms we really scared the Shiit out of them. They were all behaving like school kids & begging us to slow down (from what we were driving with them as pillion at about 70Kmph ) It was a nice team of cops who could understand the fun of riding but what we think why should we be harassed ever when we show all relevant docs to them or any relevant authority.

But as said all is well that goes on well ( i changed it a bit )... We do ride on the same HIGHWAY & see them sometime & we do wave at each other

Woah, 1700CC with 90 BHP is not powerful enough .. At least for me its the the beast available on ROAD officially ! I am now planning to get the new suzuki Intruder in some days/months Any idea if suzuki has got some financier in process as Yamaha Has got BAF . I somehow have forgotten my way ahead of my C200K somehow now am getin' crazy for BIKES ! Will post when ever i do get one . Somehow the scene of its availability is not so clear as I tried speaking with Two zonal dealers up South & down north (my vision lets me see so ) they are not sure of its pricing on ROAD & any other info as to when can they get the available for sale. I wonder whats down on Suzukis mind !

Where I used to go on my MT01 I was always mobbed by people. Which was very unsafe & annoying for me even though after i park my bike & go for the work i had ben there I used to find the unattended bike getting touched/checked out by people. I did a small mod in it. I didnt install it properly but did a small test around my home.

I got a remote trigger from my radio worked toy ... I attached a it to a New horn which was wired to a battery. I parked my bike & just went to a distance of about 150meters & waited discretely for any passerby to come near the bike with ill intention of touching /checking out my bike. he did come & i just pressed On Off repeatedly to sound the horn in a fashion similar to the thief alarm.. The guy near the bike just looked around to see what had happened must have thought that some safety alarm must have been triggered in the bike so he swiftly got lost from there. Few more guys came & I did the same thing with my hands in jacket working nicely on the remote . I think the way i was doing was smart enough to detract people away from my bike. at least from my visible range & a distance within 150mtrs.

I will modify the device smart enough to be parked below the seat & have it installed permanently to my bikes pressure horn. Hoping to hear any idea to work it better. Infact i want to device something like proximity sensor which will self fire the horn if any one come near specific area like handle or something. i will look into how does the parking sensor work; thereby will try to device a way to use such a sensor ... Till now i am totally unsure on the science involved but I am just trying to brain storm few technologies to work for me. It not only to make my bike safe but also to have fun with people who try to have fun around my bike in my absence !!!

One friend of mine had bought (form overseas mod shops) & installed a wireless mic & speakersetup under bonnet of his car a Beemer 5series & he shouts it "Chor Chor" ... whenever someone pokes inside or tries some thing stupid around his car (when ever he is in visual range of the car of-course. its fun watching him playing such prank. Wonder what all one would do to make their dear vehicles feel safe !

(Mods : I have used only One smiley)
