Launched: Yamaha YZF-R15 v3.0 MotoGP edition
Yamaha has launched a limited edition of the YZF-R15 v3.0. The R15 MotoGP edition is priced at Rs 1.3 lakh (ex-showroom), thats Rs 3,000 over the standard R15. Yamaha has started taking orders for Rs 10,000. The limited edition R15 receives YZR-M1 inspired graphics all over the body. Does it get any mechanical changes? No. It still draws power from the 155cc, liquid cooled motor just like we saw in the standard R15. The engine churns out 19bhp and 15Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. And if you show this motorcycle a straight piece of tarmac, then it is capable of hitting 140kph. Braking duties are taken care by disc brakes at both ends (282mm up front and 220mm at the rear). The bike is equipped with a telescopic fork at the front and a swingarm suspension at the rear. Along with the limited edition R15, Yamaha has also launched two new paint schemes for the FZ S-FI – Matt green and Darknight – at Rs 87,042 (ex-showroom).
