They behave as if they are working at NASA.L M F A O !!!Bro, listen, YAMAHA will NEVER launch USD FORKS with its R15 series whether it is V2, V3 or V4 (somewhere 15 years later on MARS).You should thank to God that Yamaha gave R15 V3 to India after two years of its actual launch date across the planet.MANDIR me BOONDI KE LADDU CHADHAAO BHAI aur shukr manaao ki YAMAHA NE R15 V3 DE TO DI INDIA ME varna MUJHE TO USKI BHI UMMEED NAHI THI.

SURPRISINGLY, YAMAHA gave the R15 V3s most wanted INDONESIAN VERSION to BANGLADESH but NOT TO INDIA because whenever they think about India, their thinking change. THEY FEEL AS IF WE ARE BEGGARS.AREY BHAI, USD FORKS KITNA MEHENGA HAI BHAI???
