The upcoming Yamaha R15 was spotted yet again by Vaibhav Saigal. Close to 8 months of testing and yet the company has not launched the bike makes us believe that there is more than meets the eye. When any car or bike manufacturer modifies any of its vehicle’s design, it doesn’t take them long to get the vehicle into the dealerships. However it is very different with the R15, which seems to have some major mechanical changes. There is no other reason why Yamaha India would delay the launch of the 2012 R15 by over 6 months now. Rumours suggest, the next iteration of the R15 would feature a 22-24 bhp engine, which would make it the king ping in its segment. Having a lighter body and a fantastic chassis will easily make the 2012 Yamaha R15 the pick of enthusiasts. The bike can be launched anytime soon with the rear heavily resembling the YZF-R6.
