  1. The stock market has been shaken by the COVID situation and hasn't recover yet
  2. Nice to see that here still "active"
  3. time to revive this thread after so long
  4. don't think there will be aftermarket exhaust for our bike. Recent bikes also don't have much aftermarket exhaust.
  5. RXZ is a 2 stroke bike while X1R is a 4 stroke bike. totally different if you want to compare. For class 2B bikes, there are quite a number of choices to choose from. Yamaha sniper 150, honda rs150r, yamaha fz150, honda wave...........
  6. You can enquire from ASPhoon salesperson to negotiate for a deal regarding this 'trade up'
  7. Hi welcome. That's a very good price due to the lower COE. No street legal exhaust yet, still waiting.
  8. Hmm, perhaps you are very stiff when handling the bike. Try to keep yourself relax and be confident. Bigger bikes have more braking power and you Need to know how much pressure to apply when braking. Try go slower when going through the crank course or U-turn.
  9. Hmm, perhaps you are very stiff when handling the bike. For U-turn, be mindful of your speed before stopping and clutch control, a bit too fast and you have the tendency to brake harder to stop and lose balance. Try to keep yourself relax and be confident. Go for more circuit revision before going for prac 5 and inform the instructor you want to practice more on U-turn.
  10. Let me recall back, I think that time I changed at 500km, 1500km then 3000km, estimated around 2 months EO change interval. I just ride as per normal all the while. I using the traditional old school basket Good to change the brake hose to steel braided ones. I am also considering.
  11. Now NYP and all other polytechnics don't have free bike parking. All need to pay already
  12. Hi Bro, mine is matt black with a bit of red.
  13. Boon Siew is the authorized agent for this bike and not a parallel import unless the bike shop bought in PI models. Anyways, I am still in the running in process. The bike likes its rev range to be above 3k rpm, if not it will be "coughing" for the rider to throttle up. The stock tires don't feel that reliable, gotta upgrade those when its due for tire change. I have to say that the ride has been enjoyable so far
  14. I am riding the RS150R. IMO if compared with FZ16 and Spark 135, RS150R is a better choice. RS150R has smoother acceleration and more powerful pickup. Do take note of its light handling at the front during sudden accelerating as it will wobble slightly if caught unprepared. Its 6 gear feature is a plus point as you can cruise on the highway without stressing the engine and enjoy better fuel economy. Front tire 90/80 and rear tire 120/70 = more tire contact on the road surface and more stability. Its design is sharp looking and neat. A stylish design that is suitable for riders from all ages. I never rode on a Yamaha Sniper 150 before thus unable to compare as it is a close competitor of the RS150R. I have read about reviews of its poor braking efficiency but I have no complains about the braking power as utilizing engine braking + front/rear brakes is sufficient for me. If you are an aggressive rider and enjoy the speed, you definitely need to upgrade the whole braking system.
