    Things which we feel are missing:

    1. Engine kill switch.
    2. Pass switch.
    3. The YBR-125 basic model for those people who are looking for a new family bike or just those who like things retro.

    A disk brake is a disk brake, whether its a single or dual piston calipers. However, in my opinion, Single piston on front disk brake screams cost reduction. Dual Piston doubles the pressure points on the rotor, hence better braking. And more braking force at the front isn't a bad thing.

    I hate Ravi people for doing that on Piaggio, and I abhor Yamaha for doing the same. But plasticy bikes of today's generation ... nothing better to expect from them <_<
    Riders on the storm ... literally.

    I must say I am a little disappointed at Yamaha marketing team. They haven't used their experience gained from operating in international markets for such a long period. I mean it was such an anticipated product, yet showrooms have no flyers/brochures or any other giveaways for visitors. Very poor! Suzuki launched GD110 only 2 years ago and they at least had flyers and test-rides for the visitors at the time of launch.

    The dealer I visited today rejected the idea of giving test rides suggesting "it suits only to those dealers who are sure their customers would not buy their machines unless they have not test driven them". I argued Suzuki offered test rides from the day 1 of GD launch and to-date it is doing pretty good in sales. To this he replied "Suzuki have company-operated showrooms, so company has given test vehicles to each showroom". So this means if people go to Yamaha showrooms and insist on getting a test drive before deciding to make a purchase, they would be forced to let authorities at Yamaha know to give them one test ride to each dealer or to major dealers.

    Poor marketing team at Yamaha. Suzuki did great in this area.

    And I feel the general build quality of GD is superior to YBR. I own a GD and I saw a YBR today. I am telling this just by looking at both. And this is only my opinion.

    In my humble opinion, single piston disk brake is perfect for smaller size / weight bike. Dual piston brake is a disaster for small bikes. Deluxe uses dual piston and it gets its wheel jammed so quickly that it becomes difficult to handle and you soon you are on road (practicle experience of a deluxe owner who owns an RP now). Whereas single piston brakes works like an ABS. Wheel never get jammed and you get super braking power.

    my two cents...

    seems like it's time to say good by to my deluxe.

    anyone knows how many models are going to be launched at initial stage or in this year?

    Single Piston Disk brake has enough stopping power for a bike that is meant to be ridden at 70-80 kmph max. Dual Piston would be an overkill for a bike like this.

    This is the naked sibling of YZF R125. I dont think even Indians have got this model. If this model gets released in Pakistan by any chance, This will be in same league as CBR 150 and may cost around half a million or maybe more. The much needed bikes in Pakistan are FZ series and the newly released Saluto.

    Now this is getting interesting! Every manufacturer would have to come up with something of their own to cope with this challenge.
    It is not confirmed yet so I didn't posted this but a friend from Pak Suzuki told me a couple of weeks ago that 2 new models are on the way within 6 months or maybe even less. Now guess which models?

    Any idea which segment the new models cater to? <150cc or >150cc?
