Yamaha YZF R15 from the eye of motogeeeksatyam
Aug 30, 2008 | Views: 842
According to the Yamaha guys present there, this bike should soon make it into the Indian Market soon...
The Yamaha YZF-R15 sports a Full Fairing with Twin Headlamps, has a "Delta" Frame and a "Water Cooled" Engine, a Monoshock Rear suspension and a 6-Speed gearbox. I am not quite sure whether the YZF-R15 features Fuel Injection.
The specs that a Yamaha guy standing at the Yamaha Pavilion at the Auto Expo told the YZF-R15 was..
* Engine Capacity: 150 cc
* Maximum Power: 16 BHP
* Price: Rs. 90,000
The Yamaha YZF-R15 when launched is without doubt going to be the Best Looking Bike in India. The YZF-R15 is laden with all the features that any desi biker could ask for.
My only concern would be that this beauty deserves at least a 180 cc engine and should belt out at least 18 BHP to do justice to it's sports bike looks. 16 BHP would actually be a little dissappionting.
Lets wait for the Official Confirmation for the engine capacity and the BHP figures. But I salute Yamaha for not resorting to another half hearted attempt. This time the YZF-R15 definitely looks like a genuine and honest attempt..!!
