Yamaha India launches the R15 V 3.0 MotoGP Limited Edition. The Yamaha R15 V3 MotoGP edition is priced at Rs 1.30 lakh. This is an increase of Rs 3,000 over the standard variant of the R15, priced at Rs 1.27 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
The new YZF-R15 Version 3.0 MotoGP Limited Edition comes with the 'Yamaha Racing Blue' colour scheme. The motorcycle also receives the MotoGP branding on the fairing, tank and side panels.
The R15 MotoGP edition gets the Moviestar logo on the front and sides of the motorcycles. It also features the ENEOS logo on the bottom belly pan. However, the limited edition MotoGP variant loses out on the numbering of Yamaha's MotoGP riders, Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales.
Apart from the new racing blue paint scheme and the decals, the motorcycle remains unchanged. The Yamaha R15 V 3.0 comes powered by the same 155cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine. It produces 19bhp and 15Nm of torque, mated to a six-speed gearbox.
In terms of features, the Yamaha R15 comes standard with LED headlamps, LED tail lights, fully-digital instrument cluster, 17-inch MRF tyres (Metzeler tyres are provided as optional) and slipper clutch.
The suspension on the R15 is handled by telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. Braking on the motorcycle is through 282mm and 220mm front and rear discs, respectively. However, the R15 misses out on ABS, even as an optional feature.
Along with the launch of the Yamaha R15 V 3.0 MotoGP edition, the company has also started a new campaign, ‘The Call of the Blue'.
As part of the new campaign, Yamaha has also introduced the FZS-Fi with rear disc brakes. The updated version of the Yamaha FZS-Fi is now available in two new colours; Matt Green and Dark Knight. The new FZS-Fi motorcycle is priced at Rs 87,042, ex-showroom (Delhi).
Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group, stated, "Yamaha's global corporate mission of realizing kando should be expressively achieved through all of its products or related experiences. Being a #CustomerFirst brand, it is our duty to create delightful experiences for customers that can enrich their lives in the long run."
He further added, "The launch of "The Call of the Blue" should convey Yamaha customers or any customer of two-wheelers about the brand's commitment to providing highly advanced technology as well as treasuring style through its two-wheelers. The launch of new products under the campaign launch will offer exciting experiences put together by the Yamaha uniqueness."
