New Released in India Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 2.0 price, specifications, reviews, pictures, engine, features, exhausts, transmissions, dimensions, suspensions, brakes, tyres, and wheels.
The second largest motorcycle market in the world, India, will receive an upgraded YZF-R15 for 2012, the country’s flagship Supersport Yamaha.
Leaned over mid-corner, tires fiercely gripping the tarmac, its engine screaming out the high revs it craves, this Yamaha has treated aspiring sportbike riders ever since its launch. The lean and compact, technology-packed R15 represents a mean package, accelerating, turning and stopping with the aggression of a precision, laser-guided missile.
For 2012, though, Yamaha revamped the 2012 YZF-R15, taking more technical features from the 2012 YZF-R1 and 2012 YZF-R6 sportbikes. The fuel-injected 2012 model provides a further evolution of the existing model’s basic performance while redesigning the body styling and boosting performance in sporty riding.
n this market the YZF-R15 was launched by Yamaha in 2008 as the first full-fledged supersport model in the 150cc class has won a broad-based following as a sport bike that enables riders to “enjoy riding” in environments ranging from city streets to winding roads and even on the race circuit. This popularity has helped establish a new 150cc supersport motorcycle category.
Paying more for this upgraded model despite no peak power gains are might seem to hold back this revised model, and the R15’s brilliant chassis truly begs for more power to match its perfectly sorted dynamics. The competition is only intensifying with every passing day, which means Yamaha still need to pull their gloves off a little further, with even more conviction.
