Yamaha R15 2012 New Model Launch In India Soon- Road Tests Ongoing



Updated on 6th September 2011

Yamaha R15 Launched at Rs. 1.07 Lakhs, all details here

Yamaha has been testing the new model Yamaha R15 for a long time now. There have been many important milestones in between like the TVS Apache RTR 180 ABS making its way to Indian markets, Honda CBR250 being launched,  bikes like Kawasaki Ninja 650R coming to Indian roads and many other bikes coming to Indian roads including Yamaha’s own F-series being revamped. Time and time again we have seen spy pictures and candid shots of Yamaha R15 new model floating on the blogosphere. Recently another test mule have been spotted by a motoring enthusiast which indicated the design clues of new R15 being inspired by the Yamaha’s popular YZF-R6 racer.

The all new R15 will still be powered by a 150 CC engine but it may be tuned up to deliver as much as 22 BHP of peak power with great performance. Since the R15 seems a bit overpriced when compared to the larger bikes or the other bikes of the same segment, there is also a huge possibility of some price rationalization to boost the sales of R15 by Yamaha India. There were earlier speculations that new Yamaha R15 can be as much as Rs. 10,000 cheaper than the older version. There is no official word on pricing or launch date as yet, we expect something to come out in the near future.

  6. Hi Rajeev
    I would suggest you to talk with the dealer and convert your booking to new model. If that is not possible, cancel the booking and make new booking. Why buy an old model when new one is just few weeks from launch.

  7. The new Yamaha YZF R15 will be launched on 6th Spetember, 2011 at New Delhi. Pricing might be somewhat similar to the ongoing model, as the new model looks sleek and mean!
