Japanese two-wheeler maker Yamaha is all set to introduce the new YZF-R15 V3.0 MotoGP edition in the Indian market. Now, the company has teased the Yamaha R15 V3.0 MotoGP edition in a newly released video. Previously, we had already reported that the R15 V3.0 MotoGP edition will be launched in August.
The newly released video states that the R15 V3.0 ‘Gets More Iconic', which indicates that the R15 V3.0 MotoGP edition launch is around the corner. Yamaha already retails the MotoGP edition of the R15 V3.0 in several southeast Asian markets. The special edition R15 V3.0 gets only cosmetic changes.
The Yamaha R15 V3.0 MotoGP edition will be offered with a blue paint scheme similar to the Yamaha factory MotoGP bike. The motorcycle will also adorn the Movistar logo on the front fairing and the front cowl. The bike will also get the ENEOS logo on the belly pan.
The Yamaha R15 V3.0 MotoGP edition will draw power from the same 155cc liquid-cooled engine that produces 19bhp and 15Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox assisted by a slipper clutch.
The prominent features of the Yamaha R15 V3.0 include sleek LED headlamps, an all-new digital instrument cluster, aerodynamic LED tail light and a wide rear tyre. The bike also gets a host of accessories such as seat cover, tank pad, frame slider, skid plate, Metzeler rear tyre and Daytona muffler.
Recently, Yamaha also increased the price of standard R15 V3.0 in the Indian market by Rs 2,000. We can expect the new Yamaha R15 V3.0 MotoGP edition to be slightly expensive than the standard variant of the motorcycle. But the MotoGP edition of the R15 V3.0 will certainly boost the sales of the motorcycle.
