Two new Yamaha R15 V2.0 colours introduced. No news of the rumoured V3.0
While the much rumoured Yamaha R15 V3.0 doesn’t seem to be coming to us anytime soon, Yamaha Motors India has has decided to come up with two new paint shades for its flagship model. The two new Yamaha R15 V2.0 colours should infuse at least some freshness with the highly capable, but ageing model. It may be noted that the R15 has been epitome of track manners and is easily among the more exciting models in its price segment. However, the advent of some new models in its segment has affected the desirability quotient of the R15. It is being speculated that Yamaha plans to introduce a comprehensive facelift of the R15, but so far, there has been no official word on this from the manufacturer.
Streaking Cyan (above) and GP Blue (below) are the two new colours for the R15. Other Yamaha R15 V2.0 colour options are – Racing Blue, Raring Red, Invincible Black and a special edition Grid Gold.
The hugely capable Yamaha R15 V2.0 has been on sale for INR 1,17,260 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Powering the Yamaha R15 V2.0 is a 149.8 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected motor that produces a maximum power of 17 PS at 8,500 rpm and a peak torque of 15 Nm at 7,500 rpm.
