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.
Crazy are called those who play with the limits

Insane are called those who deal with death

Masters are called those who seal the deal

Legends are called anyone of those who die in their quest.

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.
