Under the Yamaha Call of Blue campaign, it has launched the Monster Energy Moto GP Edition of the R15 V3. It is priced at Rs 1.42 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
A lot of you might remember the jazzy Yamaha motorcycles in the MotoGP Livery. With this, you might also know that Monster Energy is the main sponsor for the Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer.
So, under the Yamaha’s Call Of The Blue campaign, the manufacturer has launched the R15 V3 with the Monster Energy Moto GP Livery. The livery is inspired by the YZR-M1 superbike and is priced at Rs 1,42,780 (ex-showroom), demanding a price hike of nearly Rs 1,500.
Yamaha R15 V3 Moto GP Edition offers the branding on the side fairing, fuel tank and the headlamp cowl. Before the launch of R15 ABS, it was available in the Blue Moto GP livery as well. The livery comes as the brand’s vision to represent the regular street riding.
Above the air vent on the front, there is a big ‘Monster’ branding logo below a small ‘Eneos’ decal. On the side and front fender, you get the logo of Monster Energy. The fuel tank is covered in Blue, while rest of the portion comes in Black.
Other than this, the R15 is also available in three different colour options – Thunder Grey, Racing Blue and Darknight. The latter was recently launched with the ABS update.
Mechanically, it will continue with the same 155cc liquid-cooled DOHC single-cylinder engine, that delivers 19.1 BHP and 14.7 Nm of peak torque. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch.
For suspension, it uses telescopic forks at the front and a swingarm monoshock at the back. Disc brakes at both the ends with dual-channel ABS now come as standard fitment on all the colour options.
Yamaha is expected to launch the BS-6 version of its entire lineup by the end of this year. Yamaha is expected to launch more premium two-wheelers in India as it has decided to shift its focus to premium models rather than commuter ones.
