I will be posting some videos while riding , will post them on the thread to show how easy it is to ride in city.
Wow that's really good to listen to. Top Gear @ 50 KMPH without knocking sounds interesting. For sure will be wonderful if you could post in the videos whilst you are riding. Be Safe when you are doing it

Thanks for the video, it was good to see her perform seamlessly, yes the roll on of the bike from a speed of around 38KMPH was indeed good. Speaks volumes of the low end torque the bike has.

HI Nikhil & all FZ owners
How reliable is the fuel guage on the FZ-1? Have noticed that when the petrol is 3 sticks on the console and if the bike is parked for quite some time the guage shows only one stick left. Would this be common to all Bikes or just the FZ-1?

Did you park it on an incline? I have observed that the fuel guage is pretty accurate and does not fluctuate much

Nikhil,
Not exactly on an incline, even on level places. When the petrol is around 3 strokes but after parking for some time it goes down to 1 or 2 strokes. All that i do is the tilt the bike to its right side and when turned on the indicator is back to being 3 strokes. Hence my question.

Yes it has been pretty reliable so far. The last time when i filled up petrol it was showing 2 strokes remaining and it accommodated 11.6 Ltrs. Just thought would check if you had such experiences.

Nice videos Nikhil!

Which camera is it? Looks too steady for a Helmet Cam.

Its a Go Pro Hero cam. This has been mounted on the fuel tank and not on helmet hence the stable video.

@Niks: There in not A but two pics but mind you I am not complaining on the contrary I am craving for more, do post if you have more Images. I am sure you must be having more, so please don't be over critical on you and post those here and let us criticize (read drool over) them.
