I bought this bike from yamaha authorised re-seller, vasai. I waited for nearly 1 month for this bike to arrive and another 10-15 days for the registration.
It was a wonderful experience owning this bike.
It looks stunning and well very few bikes on the Indian road looks this good.
The power, the superior road grip, the precision, the engine, the pickup everything is trilling in this bike.
It doesn't feels the its a 125cc bike as it has even competed with 180cc bikes and done well.
I have done several long rides on this bike and it was very comfortable to ride this bike.
I have even taken this bike to goa and it performed pretty well.
The engine is very smooth and the gear shifting is very aggressive.
The braking is good enough to secure you from any kind of mishap.
The suspension system is good enough to ride is pretty bad roads.
When i bought this bike the service centres in mumbai were very less but now the scenario is totally different. Yamaha has emerged a lot of all this.
The cons of owning a yamaha:
1. Very less options of authorised service stations.
2. If a part fails, the service centre will take 2 weeks to order and fit the part.
3. The superior quality of part directly affects the parts and they are costlier.
4. If you're not prompt with taking good care of the bike, the bikes mileage will be affected.
