Yeah great so finally yamaha came up with something good...
My friend bought this bike recently and so i got a chance to have my hands on this monster.It's looks are pretty sexy and sharp just like elder bro YZF R1 ,Comfort level is'nt that high but not bad also after all, it's all sporty theme would'nt let you feel driving a commuter anymore.
Handling does feel slight weak in traffic if compared to commuters, the handle struggles with fairing but on a free or less dense road you'll surely feel like a racer.So, it's cool that india is getting racy .(hope the roads understand)
Now coming to it's looks it seems that it's a carbon copy of R1 but indeed with many visible changes the bike being sporty lacks height and so obesity attacked dudes may not enjoy the ride much and may get a back ache as return gift, adding in style and performance is the presence of monoshocker which are essential for any racing bike, till now only Unicorn showed up with this.

Now that was some cool facts and advantages of this hunky bike but like always it has it's drawbacks.
Company claims a mileage of about 45 to 50 kmpl...???///??
Let's see again BHP above 17 and cubic capacity = 150
...still a 45 kmpl mileage is more than one can lie about, and if somehow it managed to do so then it wont be a racing stuff anymore.( you won't be driving at 30 kmph in 6th gear ....!!..will you ?? )
Moreover despite of it's stunning looks there is one thing that pinches is it's ugly back, the 17 inch slick tyre looks like JUGAAD in this techno crap, my friend is planning to go for a broader tyre 'coz this one is embarrasing.
Also the cheap looking alloys make's the tyres look silly.
Lastly at over one lakh INR it is TOO costly.(rs .1,06,000 approx.)
More about this chic soon
keep chekin 4 more...
