Yesternight, first time I saw a red YBR on road with pillion riding. From a far distance some very bright headlight got my attention which was not a LED or an HID. PWs reviews came to help me and I immediately made a guess it must be YBR and my quest fulfilled finally.
I myself clarified about many misconceptions or may be difference of personal observations,
There is no second thought about it. It was not less than a dream bike. It was beautiful, balanced and much finished product. Front and rear lights were bright and adding more attraction towards the bike. I have to admit the headlight beam worked very well even there were road light but still the beam was making effects.
The bike felt big in size to me like a Honda Deluxe. That 5 feet 6 inches guy looked small. The 18 inches alloys were the key factor in making a bike look bigger.
Though myself haven't ride it yet but seeing those riders it looked to me very comfortable. Both were sitting very relaxed, especially the pillion rider. His legs and back angle was in a much relaxed position then on a GS-150.
I was really not sure why people who are complaining about the quietness of YBR, didn't complaint the same for GD. My ears told me that YBR had a better sound note than a GD one. It was more like Piaggio and Piaggio has a good sweet sound.
No review on the mechanical side as I haven't got a chance to ride it myself.
Thanks for your time and kind regards,
