My oh my. At that price Yamaha needs to bring it over. 104 mpg blows away many scooters as far as performance vs price. Even if they added a $1000 to the price for a us spec bike it still undercuts the ninja 250 by a bunch.

Well it has the Honda Twister and Unicorn Dazzler things beat!

Wondering about pollution regs in India. I doubt they have any. If so, a 150cc two stroke would be a lot more fun

Yamaha India needs to take a queue from Honda's India marketing group and rename this bike something like:

"Sparkle Brightly Tiger Flight."

The author tells me India has quite strict pollution regs, and many OEMs struggle to meet them. While more fun and more powerful, two-smokers are on their way out unless a revolutionary new design takes hold.
