Yamaha is working on its new model of Yamaha R15 which will hit Indian roads soon. Although there is not official announcement of the launch date or details as yet, but its expected that there will be price drop. The new model which will come out in 2011 will features some cosmetic upgrades and may also have some engine tweaking or minor changes too. The Yamaha R15 has been quite popular with the biking enthusiasts and the new model is expected to boost the sales further. As an icing on the cake, some unofficial sources have revealed that there can be a cut of as much as Rs. 10,000 on the existing price. This change might be mainly because of more localization and also partly because of marketing team’s decision to make it a more competitive product compared to the other bikes in the same price segment.
The current price of Yamaha R15 is over Rs. 1 Lakh ex-showroom Delhi which might pose a competition from the higher segment bikes like Honda CBR250 which has been priced at Rs. 1.5 lakhs which will run on India roads soon.
