Thanks for the info, J2R! I guess bikes that are 500cc+ are labeled as superbikes (correct me if I'm wrong). How is this R15 different from other motorcycles in the similar CC category [viz. Pulsar 180, 220 etc.]

What's the deal with oil cooled engine?

[I'm a total newbie when it comes to motorcycles!]

Yeah, definately not a superbike (in size or speed), however a cool little streetbike of the yzf family. An oil cooled engine is really an air cooled engine where they usually install a cooling fan on the oil cooler where most regular air cooled engines have no oil cooler fan. Looks cool, though I think I would go with the ninja 250 if I was looking for a small displacement sporty bike, assuming it is available in your market of course.

I don't think so. If this is the case then my 535 cc Royal Enfield is also a superbike.
I believe superbikes are bikes with a mind blowing performance. The light weight of such motorcycles mean that 200 hp will take you to 100kmph in around 3 sec. The high performance demands superior control on the part of the rider. And yes these bikes command respect. I think a bike with a 400 cc engine with very high performance will come under the category of superbike. Just like the Ariel Atom comes in the category of Super Cars.

I've seen the bike and I think the back tyre is just too thin. The looks are stunning, no doubt [​IMG] !
