Completer 5000 kms

Its been almost 2 months and 5000 kms with my fz25, and the news is good. The bike is in my parking looking fresh after the second service, which only cost me 1200/-.
About the bike
If you are one of those people who considers public road as a race track this may not be the bike for you, It's for the riders who like to have a fun in a bit relaxed manner, not to kill yourself. It's not a widow maker.
Looks
The bike looks awesome with its naked, clean, mean, mature and muscular design. It looks good in the flesh. May be that's why Yamaha didn't use any graphic lines or big words printed on it. I love it.
Engine
The engine offers a lot of torque than horsepower. I guess that's the reason I was able to do very quick overtakes, ride at 35kmph in top gear and do win a lot of drag races on signals (well...most of the time).
Most of all it sounds soo good; heard Yamaha did a lot of work to make it sound like this; Thanks for that.
Fuel injection system made the throttle very responsive and quick.
The oil cooling combined with air cooling works perfectly. The engine never heats up
How it goes
The sitting posture and the ride is a bit more sporty compared to the previous FZ. The bike is perfect for the city as well as long rides. Going through a long stretch of mountain roads with lot of twisties and windies will give you immense pleasure, I loved taking it to hill stations. It handles corners beautifully, but, not sure if it will let you drag your knees on it.
Mileage
I am getting around 35kmpl in city and 47 to 49kmpl in long drives(seriously)
What I don't like
The rear view mirrors are made for looks, not to look at. They are not that helpful.
I wish Yamaha had offered ABS as a option (if someone needs it)
The headlights are pretty good, not awesome. I wish Yamaha had offered projector lambs, rather than LEDs.
Handle grips becomes very slippery in rain.
The instrument cluster is clear but does not look very good (like the apache rtr 200) also lacks a gear indicator.
verdict.
I think its pretty obvious what I think about this bike, yes...I love it. It's perfect. I guess Yamaha made it for the mature audiences, not for the youngsters who are eager to ride and die.
I hear people mention thinks like "no liquid cooling" "no 6th gear", but I think both are not needed for this bike. I consider this as a smaller variant of BMWR9T. Most of all its a Yamaha.
